Midbrooks Campsite is a small and friendly park close to Trowbridge in Wiltshire. The park is a part of the Camping and Caravanning Club, open to members only, and is also a certificated site. Midbrooks welcomes guests with tents, trailer tents, motorhomes, and touring caravans, and offers a range of well-sheltered pitches, guaranteeing a relaxing, tranquil stay and offering a degree of privacy to all who stay at the site. The park is highly popular with families looking to stay in a relaxing park with easy access to the wide range of attractions nearby.
The park has hard standing and grass pitches available, while some of the pitches on both surfaces offer electric hook ups. Midbrooks also has a selection of facilities available for guests to use during their stay, including chemical waste disposal points, showers and toilets, and washing up facilities.
Trowbridge itself is popular for its architecture, and attracts visitors from around the world looking to check out the unique buildings found there. Some of the best buildings in the town are old textiles factories, while there is also a conservation area containing Victorian era homes. The town centre is small and quirky, with a range of shops to be discovered throughout Fore Street, while modern shoppers can enjoy the two shopping centres found in the town. Trowbridge has benefitted from extensive redevelopment and investment since the turn of the century, and is a thriving destination and a great place to spend a day.
Guests who enjoy spending time outdoors will find the Mendip Hills and the North Wessex Downs within a short drive of the site. Both are Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offer amazing views of the surrounding landscape. These locations can be explored on foot or bicycle, depending on how active guests wish to be.
Within the Mendip Hills, guests are encouraged to visit Cheddar Gorge and enjoy a tour of the famous Wookey Hole caves to see the wonders that lie underground in this limestone rock area that is full of small caves and popular with people who enjoy caving as a sporting pastime. The Mendip area is famed for its quaint villages and market towns, all offering something unique and great places for days out in Wiltshire and Somerset.
The surrounding area is filled with English Heritage and National Trust sites, which are always great options for family days out. Whether guests prefer old, renovated properties or acres of beautiful woodland and gardens, there’s a place to visit for everyone within easy reach.
There are some terrific pubs selling Butcombe, the award-winning local real ale, in the Mendips, too.
Families looking for a livelier day out should head to the nearby Longleat Safari Park, found just outside of Frome. If you fancy a day out at the seaside, why not head west to Weston-Super-Mare and Burnham-On-Sea. Days out in the big city are within easy reach, too, with Bath a short distance to the north west and Bristol only a little further away. Salisbury can also be found to the south, and is ideally combined with a visit to the iconic Stonehenge site.
Midbrooks Campsite offers a beautiful location for any family looking to get away from it all with tent, trailer tent, motorhome and caravan holidays in Trowbridge. This is a beautiful part of the United Kingdom, and early booking is encouraged to avoid disappointment.

An imaginatively laid out site and very well cared for. Pleasantly small and remote but still easy to find. Ideally suited to families with young children.
