Glamping with a panoramic view of the countryside and historic walks, all within close proximity to Stonehenge and Salisbury

The allure of glamping is that it provides the same natural surroundings and scenery as regular camping, but without any of the fuss. Hillview Farm Glamping fits that bill and then some. It's a small five-tent pop-up site living up to its name thanks to its position atop a hill with stunning views across the Wiltshire countryside. It's also in a great location for days out to famous landmarks and locations including Stonehenge, the New Forest and Salisbury.

Hillview Farm owner Trudy recognised the former piggery's 14 acres of land as an ideal spot for guests with a penchant for rural exploration as the titular hill is flanked by beautiful and historic walks and cycle routes. The 54-mile Monarch's Way, so-called because it was the escape route utilised by King Charles II following his defeat in the Battle of Worcester, actually runs directly through the farm, as does the 217-mile King Alfred's Way cycle loop. This traffic-free trail encompasses prehistoric Stonehenge, Avebury Stone Circle, and more. It's little wonder that waves of visiting ramblers and cyclists began arriving at Hillview Farm Glamping as soon as it opened its gates.

But it's not just the proximity to these famous routes that has visitors recommending Hillview Farm as the ideal spot to drop your bags. Each bell tent is ideal for an easy and peaceful night's sleep, with a double bed in each along with provided bedding, carpeted flooring and bedside tables to rest your evening read on. After a long day of exploring, you'll be thankful for the two on-site hot showers and composting toilets, while food can be cooked on the fire pits with surrounding outdoor seating.

Hillview Farm's location next to lengthy trails makes it a standout, but it also provides the perfect hub for families looking to take in the local sights, too. At the camp, swings are set up in the woods for the kids to play on, while the adults arrange the day's activities. The quaint village of Pitton is is a walk away, with bustling Salisbury but a short drive away. Its cathedral is home to one of just four exemplifications of the Magna Carta, and its museum boasts a lauded archaeological gallery befitting of your adventurous trip. By car, Stonehenge and the New Forest are about half an hour away and you can even swap country life for the beach within the hour, as several Dorset beaches including Canford Cliffs, Calshot, and Avon being are reachable in 60 minutes. Then head back to the site with your tired little campers in tow, for an evening of admiring the panoramic scope of South West England from your grassy hill, as you throw some more wood on the fire for an unforgettably cosy evening.

Most memorable glamping experience - and such an amazing host!

I made an exclusive booking for Hillview farm glamping on the weekend of the 17th of September to celebrate my 30th birthday and it was the most wonderful celebration I could have asked for. The location is stunning with beautiful countryside views all around and lovely walks in the area. The glamping tents are decorated very tastefully with such attention to detail which made them incredibly cosy and inviting. The barn provided a lovely rustic communal area, with enough space for all the guests to gather and have a lovely time. The kitchen, toilet and shower facilities were clean and tidy and included all the necessary items for a comfortable glamping experience. The host made the effort to check the bathroom facilities every day, keeping them well maintained. The most wonderful part of Hillview Farm Glamping was Trudy, our host. She was incredibly approachable and friendly. Her communication was brilliant prior to our arrival, she was always available to answer all our questions so we could prepare everything for our stay; she also went above and beyond to cater to our needs. This was noticed and appreciated by all the guests who felt incredibly at home. Our glamping experience was perfect, I could not fault it at all! The location, facilities, decor and atmosphere were fantastic - I highly recommend it to anyone considering to stay. And a special thank you to Trudy and her partner for being such wonderful hosts.

Great little site

Lovely site, just what we were looking, somewhere to relax and chill out. My son made friends on the first day which was a bonus. Lovely fire pit to stay warm and watch the stars at night. Plenty of walking trails nearby to explore. A really nice little site and we will definitely visit again. Trudy was great, very thoughtful and friendly.

Amazing! Lovely location, beautiful site and views. Great facilities!

What a great site. The bell tents were fantastic and the beds were super comfy. Located at the top of a hill, it had great views all around and was in a quiet location. We were lucky enough to have some sun on the days were were there and it was great sitting in the sun and relaxing whilst the kids played! Trudy the owner was very friendly and welcoming and showed us around on arrival and told us places locally we could go. We required additional help prior to arrival as we were travelling with my child who requires a safety bed and Trudy was so helpful answering our questions to make sure it would fit our needs. The facilities were brilliant, table football and a pool table to keep the kids amused. There was also a large wooden bench for groups/families to sit round for meals, a coffee or just to chill overlooking a beautiful view of the local countryside. If you wanted to just stick round the tent, then there was a firepit with cool camping chairs to chill in whilst toasting marshmallows. There is also a little kitchen type area with USB charging points and tea/coffee available to make and a sink. It was such a fun stay!

First time glamping experience with my family and I wasn’t disappointed. The owner very friendly. The facilities were cleaned and kept well. It’s a great family campsite, nice ,quiet and peaceful as there are no large group. Also space for the kids to play . Hopefully we will be able to visit again sometime in the future.

Camping Without the Schlepping

Loved our one night stay on the opening night of the site (despite the storm). Manages to capture the charm of camping (which we normally do) without the hassle. Comfy beds, great fire pit for cooking, even some games for the kids. Really appreciated the small scale of the operation, great setting, good local walks and of course being able to bring the dog! Will try and get back soon.

Perfect Getaway!

I returned today from a very last minute getaway with my dog for my birthday. Trudy was great from the start, showing me around when I arrived to helping me locate a great walking spot to do with my dog! Nothing was too much for her and she was very friendly and welcoming! Hillview Farm Glamping is the perfect spot to relax and rewind and I’m guessing by the fact the other “glampers” explored all day, a great location for that too! But for us it was perfect to chill in the quiet and have a break away from normal life! Highly recommended! Thank you! :)

Lovely last minute break

I booked this break very last minute and I’m so glad I did. It was just the perfect place for us to chill out and relax as a family. The bell tent was beautiful and spacious and the bed was very comfy. The toilets and showers were exceptionally clean and my daughter loved playing with the pool table and table football. It was lovely to relax by the fire in the evening after being out exploring Salisbury and the New forest near buy. Trudy and James were both very helpful and we thank them so much for a wonderful stay.

Spacious, sturdy tipis with pillowy soft beds & furnishings, fire pits, excellent amenities including hot showers, all facing a gorgeous countryside view & located right near Salisbury, the New Forest, or just the peace & quiet of rolling Wiltshire fields. Trudy was an exceptional host & we couldn't have asked for a lovelier stay.
