We're planning our holiday for next year and would like to go to Longleat. So we decided to look for cottages or parks to stay in so that we're within 40 miles of Longleat.

We're looking for a cottage or a holiday park. We've been having a look on the Hoseasons website but can't really think of other places to look.

Also other things to do in that area would be nice too.

this is near Longleat. It is v nice, but in a very quiet village.

this is nearby.

this is closeby and has excellent play area.

Bath is about half hour away.
Salisbury about the same.

I think Cheddar isn't too far away and Wookey Hole.

I presume you're rejecting CentreParcs, which is at Longleat?

Yeah it is far too expensive

Centerparcs has a site right next door. We did a three-day break there a while back, and used the Longleat ticket where you can go back over several days to do various different attractions (animals, house, mazes etc) on different days. The children loved spending half the day in the Centerparcs pools, playgrounds etc, and then doing a bit of Longleat. It all worked very well, but was not cheap...

warning Wookey hole is a rip of we went with me my mum step dad dc from 15- 4 ,the cave is a 20 min guided thing and woe betide if you cant keep up the pace lots of steps uneven surface.

the dinasaurs are 6 models and the fairy glen is 6 plastic fairys on tiny island .

The paper mill experiance is 3 machiens and a quick go at making paper

but Longleat was great lots to do .If you got older dc would reccomend the caving/climbing you can do as extra with rocksports at cheddar gorge my dc 15 and 12 loved it the rest of us went for walk round cheddar it self
