Reviews of Brokerswood Country Park

Great facilities, especially for small kids as you can book a bathroom! Good showers, washing up, clean toilets etc
Adventure playgrounds and train are an obvious attraction but with Longleat nearby we spent most of our time there.
We have young children and were aware of the quiet after 10 policy which suited us. Unfortunately we camped near large families in groups whose children were allowed to run riot (circling our tent running as fast as possible when my two year old was asleep!). I think if you don't have older children it may not be the best option.

Booked to stay here for 2 nights 1-2 Sept.

Firstly, the good points:
The park has very good facilities, toilet blocks are clean, pitches are large and you have unlimited access to the Country Park. Saw a couple of people waiting a few mins for a shower, but usually enough to go round. Washing up area is fine, and there is a security barrier to get in. The country park is brilliant for kids up to about 13 – there are 2 areas of adventure play (one aimed at younger kids, one older), a small train and a large lake with loads of ducks (you can buy bags of feed for 50p from the shop). The road running outside the camp is a bit noisy at times but nothing major. We were unlucky enough to have a military exercise from Salisbury taking place when we were there, which involved a Hercules aircraft flying over about 5 times at midnight but I reckon that’s pretty unusual!

We set up our 2 tents on adjacent pitches, took out our small metal BBQ to cook dinner (and keep us warm!), and proceeded to have a good evening sat around with a couple of beers, just talking and having a few laughs and went off to bed once the Hercules stopped flying over at about 12.30.

Next morning it all went downhill…. We were sat having breakfast at about 10am when the owner came marching over to us with a very aggressive attitude. She said she had had complaints that we were too noisy, and then said “And I can see from your empties that there has been alcohol involved and we have a zero tolerance policy on unruly behaviour and alcohol” (and she was jumping to conclusions here – more about that below!!). We apologized and pointed out that we were just sat around talking and no-one came over to speak to us at all? She said it wasn’t good enough and we were expected to be quiet by 10pm that night and we would be checked on by the night warden – if we were deemed to not be complying by being inside our tents silent then we would be asked to leave in the middle of night (even though we had a small child with us).

Let’s just put this in perspective – we are not a group of 20yr old students, we are four professional 36-41yr olds (inc. a teacher and a Company Director of a large International company) travelling with a 4yr old. Said child went to bed before 9pm in the tent right next to us and slept straight through it all, so could we really have been THAT noisy?? What we drink is our business, we weren’t drunk, and we also had taken 2 empty gallon bottles of scrumpy cider that we were using for WATER but the owner obviously decided in her head that those had been full of cider and we had drunk them all! No-one came over and said anything to us at the time (we would’ve made sure we were very quiet if someone had come over and spoke to us) and we were almost at the far end of the site from the toilets – during the evening we all went to the toilet block a couple of times and couldn’t hear any noise when we came out. In retrospect, the campsite was VERY quiet after about 9.30, which we found highly unusual, but I reckon it’s probably repeat visitors who know the Rules! On the flip-side, we didn’t complain about the kids tearing around shouting and playing football at about 7am, but that’s because that’s what camping is like! The Welcome Pack had a sticker on the front saying ‘No noise after 11pm’, but we presumed that was no music or shouting - not that you were expected to be inside your tent and silent by 11pm!!

And none of this would have been a problem if we’d known this up front. If that’s their rules then it’s fine. We would just have chosen to stay somewhere else. But nowhere on Brokerswood’s website, or on the booking confirmation they sent us in the post (which was after we’d had to pay the full amount up front), did it make any reference to the campsite policy being complete silence after 11pm. If they had said that we would have just cancelled, as no way would we have been able to go to bed and go to sleep before 11pm. Between us there is a lot of camping experience and we’ve never came across a site with those conditions – half the point of camping is the whole ’sitting up talking by candlelight’, surely?

Needless-to-say, we didn’t stay there the 2nd night (so was expensive camping for 1 night!). We went out to Longleat for the day (highly recommended!), then came back and packed up the tents – all 5 of us drove back to my house in Gloucestershire and continued our holiday there by setting up the BBQ fire in our back garden and sitting out toasting marshmallows on it (as we had promised our child), having a few glasses of wine and a bit of a laugh. And none of my neighbours had a problem with any noise we were making!!

In summary – if you are a family who are all in bed by 10.30pm and up at 7am, then this site is 100% perfect and you’ll have the most fantastic time. If you like to have a few late nights and a few laughs on holiday, then go to a normal campsite where that’s fine, and avoid this one!
