What a wonderful campsite! Extremely friendly and welcoming owners, who saw to our every need during the whole 10 night stay. Nothing was too much trouble, and considering that the site was busy the whole time of our stay (we can understand why!) we had no problems at all with waiting for showers or hot water etc. Very clean and well kept in all areas, lovely large pitches and also very reasonable pitch prices too, compared to some other much lesser quality more expensive local sites we have stayed in. In fact we have returned twice since and look forward to next season where we will be sure to be visiting again.

We find this site ideal because it is 45 minutes drive from home in South London and although we travel about, we are always keen to spend the occasional weekend here. There is always someone about to help, the staff are always welcoming.
The facilities are as good as anywhere and the atmosphere is relaxed.
It is sited in an old quarry, so the chalk can be awkward on those precious pegs, but look at it this way - it drained pretty well during the wet weather. It's a nice pleasant walk for the children. In addition, there are two pubs very nearby and a Chinese restaurant for good measure - that is if you want a break from the camp fire.
If you've young children, they'll love it. The playground's nothing special, but there's room for them to play and have fun.
Yes, we can think of advantages of other sites, but we'll return here

A lovely clean site with very helpful friendly owners. 
We used this site as an emergency stopover as we has broken down on the way to France and had to stay over until the car was fixed.
The owners were very friendly and slotted us in very last minute. They also offered us help if we needed to contact anybody, eg ferry or campsite in France due to our delay.
 
The site itself was nice and flat with grass cut well and the pitches were spacious and well set out around the play area in the middle.  Toilet block was clean, as was the washing up area.  Only complaint was the showers (cold) but when you are desperate who cares!
 
Shop had the usual essentials and came in handy.
 
The site is situated just off a very busy road and the country lane it was on also seemed busy with no proper pavement to walk up to the pub.  This didn't bother us as we were just so grateful for somewhere to stay but I do not know what it would have been like staying there for a long holiday as we do not know the area as are from Manchester.  However, you don't seem to notice the traffic noise from the main road as the site is surrounded by high banking (I take it was a disused quarry), this made it seem like a little haven away from the main road.
 
Would definitely use again and would recommend especially for short stopovers enroute to other places (eg Dover ferry port)!

We have just returned from ten fun filled, relaxing days at this site.

Contrary to the previous review we found this site welcoming and friendly. The owners seemed more than happy to accommodate our individual needs, even reopening the site shop at night to allow us to replenish our stock of washing up liquid! The whole team at this site were always ready to assist with helping the holiday run smoothly.

The pitch sizes are very spacious, a distance between units is obligatory but the owners were more than happy to help with the siting of the tent. The pitches drained very quickly and the whole site is kept very clean and tidy, bins emptied twice a day when necessary.

The children were made to feel very welcome and were allowed to be children too - riding bikes, playing on the play area and exploring the surrounding wooded area. They were also allowed to play ball games or similar as long as they respected the other campers on the site.

There is a washing up and laundry room that has fridge freezer, washing machines and tumble dryers in (there is a charge for the machines). There was plenty of available space to dry the clothes: washing line and numerous airers. The fridge freezer facilities were free and I have to say none of our items walked.

The site shop stocks the essentials for both food and camping. There is also an information centre that holds tourist leaflets, takeaway menus and emergency telephone numbers.

The local shops were a short car ride away in West Malling, local shops and a Tesco Express. The owners recommended 'The George' a local pub, the food was good quality with a home cooked style. The pub also offered a play area for the children too.

For bad weather, the local swimming pool - Larkfield - has shoots and flumes.

I would highly recommend this site for families and couples alike. We will be returning!

Visited site with friends - site not very busy. Found new owners quite unfriendly and not very helpful or accommodating. There were alot of aggressive wasps around because the site is set in a quarry; most of us got stung and some more than once.
The facilities were good - but could be cleaner and better maintained. The fridge freezer was filthy with quite alot of old food in which we had to throw out. The washing line was broken and us campers tried to rig up a makeshift one with the half that was left! It is not really possible to go for walks around this area as there is a main road in one direction and a country road that has heavy goods vehicles that drive down it which was dangerous for walkers. Shops and pubs nearby are more easily accessible by car.

 Site peaceful despite the fact that you are not far from the motorway. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The pub in the next village called The George serve great meals. The one criticism was there were only 2 showers, which we had to queue for and the wait got longer when the bank holiday weekend arrived, and the site became full. Our granddaughter loved the play area that was in the middle of the park which meant we could keep sight of her without having to move.
Chessington Adventure Park great fun and within travelling distance of park.  Good rail link into London from Borough Green, just 2 miles from campsite and only cost £6.20 per adult and £1.00 per child for a day pass which included the underground as well. If any one goes into London and decides to go for a meal at Planet Hollywood be prepared for 12.5% service charge to be automatically added to your bill - ours was over £15 - don't mind giving a tip but I like to decide for myself how much and if deserved.
Overall had a good week.
