“We have always tried to manage Stonehenge Campsite along sustainable lines, and that
includes harvesting rainwater for irrigating plants, and stocking locally sourced produce in
our park shop,”
“Stonehenge Campsite has long had a special appeal to guests seeking a perfect escape in
a tranquil setting, and it’s also a great place for children to come and learn more about the
natural world. “We’ve always felt very privileged to live and work in such a beautiful part of Wiltshire’s countryside, and have always tried to ensure that the park is a match for these beautiful surroundings,”.
