Brokerswood is a Country park near Longleat, with a campsite. This year they have decided to ONLY open to campers and groups like scouts/schools or those doing activity days. There are only about 50 pitches, so say 200 people camping MAX, so the kids there had masses of room and no queues for the wooden playgrounds or things on the playtrail. We wandered down a footpath in the woods, sat on a bench for half an hour and NO-ONE came past us. Fed the ducks and geese with no competition. It was really strange for a Bnak Holiday weekend. The play train in the actual camping field was always covered in kids, as was the surrounding immediate woodland, but with acres of park and lots of people leaving the site for daytrips, you can always find a bit of peace.
We wondered if they wanted to give the forest a "recovery time"? The cafe that used to serve stuff all day now does full English breakfasts for campers, and you can order daily croissants & papers. They were selling a fair few ice creams though!
It is actually a brilliant place to take younger kids too.
