Camping by Stonehenge for Summer Solstice

The Stonehenge Campsite still has a limited number of pitches available for this years Summer Solstice celebration but those who wish to book have been advised to do so before the end of the month.

Site Manager, William Grant, has asked those who hold the Summer Solstice celebration sacred, pagan or not, to book their pitches now in order to avoid disappointment nearer to the June 19th deadline. This years Glastonbury festival has been brought forward to the beginning of June and informed sources believe revellers who usually attend the Somerset event may flood Wiltshire's traditional pagan meeting spots as a result.

"We will be providing a bus service directly from the campsite to Stonehenge at 1am, and then bringing the campers back to site at 9 am, this year" said Mr. Grant. "Although the campsite is only 2 miles from Stonehenge on the footpaths, it can prove too far for the children to walk both there and back, so we have decided to provide transport as part of our 4 day Summer Solstice camping rally between 19-22 June. The price will be £10 per person per night". "We have become very popular, very quickly and you must make a £25 deposit if you want us to save you a place" said William.

The Stonehenge Campsite, one of Wiltshire's best undiscovered secrets, has enjoyed brilliant reviews since opening a year ago.
Set within a fully landscaped area, the 3 acre campsite has an excellent heated utility block providing piping hot showers together with a hot water dish washing area. Two purpose built fire pits have been carefully placed within the enclosure and firewood is always for sale to those who wish to commune around a traditional camp fire at night.

Lying a stones throw from the centre of Berwick St James, the 9 Acre smallholding is home to a flock of jacob sheep and some very gentle horses. Free range eggs are available from the chickens and the extensively stocked Berwick Farm Shop and villages' Boot Inn are 10 mins walk away.

Ah, that's GOTTA be good news, hasn't it? I had no idea there was a campsite so close to Stonehenge! And at under 4 miles away, it's well within walking distance...

Sounds like a nice (not so) little campsite! :)
