    First tip - do NOT take your MH through the park ... there won't be much of it left if the ruddy monkeys get their grubby little mits on it ... I speak from experience of doing just this when we hire one about 30 years ago ... the little sods pull the rubber seals out from some of the windows!!!!

    Top site, plenty to keep the crumb snatchers happy, we took our van throu last year great views, there is a a option to miss the monkeys out for obvious reasons

    My daughter's stayed on the campsite and says it's quite surreal hearing lions roar so close to where you're sleeping--in Wiltshire! They enjoyed the site. We lived nearby when the kids were small and walking around Longleat in the quieter months with the dogs was much nicer than in the crowded summer months.

    My brother had his beer cooler stolen from his awning on that site, so take care of your stuff.

    My friend takes her grandchildren every Christmas and thinks it's great, lots of decorations both inside and outside the house.
    All very Christmasy. Lots to see. Think there may be a light or laser show as well?
    Can't help with Moho info though sorry.

    Can't trust those Monkeys, steal anything that's not nailed down.

    Avoid the Bath Xmas markets like the plague.

    We went two years ago and it was hellish.

    Just one enormous scrum of people.
