Spent one night here without electric, to enable us to get nearer to the M25 Dartford crossing to carry our journey onto another area the early the next day. Was pleased to find a vacancy for 1 night over the bank holiday weekend, plus we were allowed to turn up earlier than the 2pm arrival time. O

Not keen on being ushered onto our pitch by warden who cycles ahead of you, husband says it puts pressure on him when reversing the caravan into place. The warden seemed a bit OCD about patrolling the site on his cycle/4X4.

Too much noise from motorways nearby to stay for a holiday but ok for a stop off.

Showers ok but with only 2 of them in both mens and womans, plus with tents this seemed too few and a queue quickly formed.

Tried the pizza wagon out on the Friday, if you like soggy wet pizza's then go for it, we didn't eat it and should of took it back!

Expensive at 20 a night without electric but served it's purpose for us for the night.

Excellent site, we visited just for a night to test out our gear, and found a really peaceful well looked after site, that had spotless toilets/showers and a great little shop. The couple that run it are really friendly and helpful, its ideal for a relaxing break, there is a little park for smaller kids to play on, its secluded and secure but easy to get to. If you not wanting to cook there is a beefeater 5 minutes up the road. Will definitely be visiting again.

Just returned from spending a bank holiday weekend on this site.

The site is very easy to access from the M26 and easy to find.

The owners gave us a good welcome and showed us to our pitch. Everything was explained and we were left to set up. A lovely clean site with reasonable size pitches, and a play area for small children.

Surrounded by by trees and woodland and with most pitches on fairly flat ground, this site is really very pleasant.

The toilet blocks are kept very clean and hot water is free.

The waste and water points are easily accessed.

There is a shop on site for the essentials, and toys and bits for the kiddies. You can hear the motorway noise but it is mostly in the background. We did not find it distracting.

The owners are obviously very passionate about their site and go the e

Extra mile to make you fell very welcome. It ticked all the boxes for us. Being so close to so many tourist attractions is also a big plus. We found the site fees to be good value.

What a great little campsite!

Small but Spacious, Sunny yet protected from the wind.

The campsite is set in what Appears to be an old quarry But please don't let this fool you as the grass is green and soft.

There's a play area for the kids, Bins and water nearby.

Toilets and showers even a Laundry room all clean and Well kept.

The staff are great and helpful what more can you ask for!

Only down side I can find would be the 18 per night for a touring caravan 1person with electric Which puts it in the peak season rates for March and well over the prices of the C&CC and the CC.

Overall a nice and pleasant campsite

This was our third visit to this fantastic site. Yet again, very friendly and easy booking system, the owners were extremely welcoming as always and allowed me on the pitch earlier.

The gentleman who owns Gate House (Dave) even unhitched the van for me and asked me if I needed any further help.

I just adore this site. It is close to home but feels a million miles away as it is so peaceful and relaxing. My children and I walked around the footpath above the trees again (jungle walk, as my children have named it).

The shop on site is fantastic and so reasonably priced! Lots of pocket money toys to keep the children happy.

The amenities are always clean and the site looked beautiful with the hanging baskets. The dustbins are regularly emptied and never overflowing.

Not much else to say really. The site is just perfect, I have already booked to come back next month.

There are lots of attractions in the area but as I am local, I don't step off site once I am there so do not visit any.

Oh, one more benefit is that it doesn't involve driving down narrow lanes. It is very accessible from the main road.

We visited this site with another family of campers as a base to visit diggerland. We arrived and were greater by the owners, who immediately advised us that they had no water due to a local problem and all the local area was out, we were offered the option of leaving to find another site but decided, as they hoped to have water again by the morning, that we could manage (our friends who were yet to arrive agreed). we were shown to out pitch, lovely grass serviced pitch, overlooking the children's play area, with just the right amount of equipment to keep our 3 & 6 yr old happy while we set up. We were also brought a large amount if bottled water to compensate for the temporary loss & an extension for our electric hook up as ours, although long, wasn't quite long enough to stretch, this was offered freely before we'd even set up, so I guess they are used to being asked.

There was no regimented way to pitch, they were happy so long as you were inside the area, which was nice. The toilets as it turned out were only not flushing for the first hour or so there and as it was a quiet weekend and there were only 2 other tents there it really was no problem. All the caravanners were using their own facilities during the outage

The campsite was lovely, the kids loved the play area and wanted to play in the woods surrounding but we only found out as we left that they are very safe and accessible for the kids, we shall use next time as I feel sure we will return.

The toilets and shower block was clean, water was hot and the showers had a decent pressure, not a dribble like some we've encountered. There was a mop to clean down after use which we did.

The wash up / laundry area was clean also and indoors, with a full sized rotary airier outside and a fridge freezer for the guests use, which we used to keep kids ice cream frozen for after tea as bought earlier before shop closed.

Shop seemed well stocked and and had everything we needed, the vacuum packed seasoned chicken escalope was very tasty bbq'd and the sausages and burgers were also very tasty and reasonably priced.

We found the owners very pleasant and helpful, we had a lovely time and said before we are likely to use again if camping in the area again.
