As others have said before, this site is exceptionally clean & tidy, but then that's to be expected with a new site. It's still a bit 'clinical' in appearance, but once the greenery has had a chance to bed in it will be a cracking little site.

We used the site to get the van out after the winter break, and spent 2 nights there. It is close to the M20 and main A20 runs just outside, but in all honesty the noise faded into the background after a short while.

Biggest bugbear for us was the lack of a dog walk. Best walk is turn left out of site, cross road to footpath & keep going to the garden centre - about 2 tenths of a mile. Just past that, turn right along road towards Bearsted Green, and a footpath is almost immediately on the right. Follow this through the fields, and it will take you to a small road - turn right and you walk back down to the main road, turn left for the site. Takes about 45 mins, but the site could do with something 'attached' to allow a quick leg stretch in safety.

Best 'eatery' is the Oak on the Green pub in Bearsted Green, but it's a drive, not walk, away. Alternatively, the Park Gate Inn is on the A20 - out of site, turn right along A20 towards Ashford, 3 or 4 mins drive from site on right hand side.

For a great day out, Leeds castle is walking distance away, but don't allow dogs in.

Facilities clean and warm, and wardens very friendly and helpful. Only 20 mins from our house, but will probably return as it's ideal for us to have a couple of days away with the kids!

Recommended - thoroughly.

A nice clean CC site with the usual Club standard facilities. Excellent location for the Tunnel or Dover and also a good place from which to explore Kent. The waste/chemical/drinking water point must be the best I have ever come across and the site is small and cosy.

The staff were the usual highly helpful CC wardens and the security is good. There is a play area but not much else to do; we were meeting friends and fellow caravanners so our socialising meant we were busy all day and in the evenings but I'd imagine that it is a site that could quickly be boring. The nearest shops are a fair trek, but thanks to the nearby M20 everything in Kent is a short drive away, (however the road is noisy and the site is far from peaceful because of that). Leeds castle didn't allow dogs so our friends couldn't go, but Kent has many other attractions.

A nice site and possibly good for a stop over prior to going abroad, but I wouldn't want to stay for longer than a few days.

What a fantastic site. My husband and I spent 3 nights in our touring caravan and really enjoyed ourselves. The site facilities are excellent, toilets and showers are very clean. The pitches are large and the staff are very helpful and welcoming. We spoke to other campers who all shared our views. We are looking forward to the next time we can visit.

New CC site, taken over by them this year facilities very clean, however: Site opens direct onto very busy main road, with no footpath on its side and very overgrown path across this very busy road. Very noisy at night from main road and motorway which is only 200 yards away. No dog walk except down the main road, no dog bins.

No shops or other facilities within walking distance.

Site is very cramped. We parked on hardstanding with strip of grass behind, which turned out to be another row of pitches, which when used later were very close.

Also note Leeds Castle will not let dogs in even to their car park.

Probably our worst CC site experience.

OK for overnight Channel stop, otherwise best to give it a miss.

Just returned from weekend stay, usual cc standards all new as only opened in July 08. Childrens play area in corner of site. All pitches are spacious with plenty of room for caravan awning and car
Nice and peaceful village about 25 mins walk away, 2 nice pubs the oak on the green does lovely food, try the steamer meat pud, very large and yummy.
Wardens very friendly and helpful would recommend and will be returning shortly

We stayed at Bearstead for one night en-route to the Tunnel. The Caravan Club had only opened the site 2 weeks earlier, so everything looked new and clean. The facilities are standard CC. There's a mixture of grass and hardstanding pitches, mostly level; there are some big full service pitches for RVs. Tents are not allowed.

There is little in the way of food or shopping within walking distance, the nearest being about 1.5 miles away. Another disappointment for us was that, despite the CC claiming 'dog walks nearby', the Wardens didn't know where they were and we couldn't find any.
