I have just had my first solo run away with my two children, aged six and four. I chose Gate House Wood as the reviews all looked good and it was only 20 minutes from home, should I encounter any problems.

We had a fantastic time, the children loved the play area and were very quick to make friends. The staff were friendly, the pitches a good size, the toilets and showers were clean and there were good washing up and laundry facilities. There was also a nice touch with magazines and books for campers to use.

My four year old loved the little on site shop, which had an amazing amount of useful stock in there! She particularly loved the different mix of sweets and being able to pick them out herself, just like the old 10p mix ups we all used to have!

Although we live near to the area we discovered a beautiful park in West Malling that we have never been to. It had a great play area for the children, and a nice cycle track and footpath along the side of the lake.

We had a perfect visit, my children cried when we had to leave. We had a walk around the woods in the top of the site, which was looked upon as a jungle adventure by my two!

I couldn't have wished for a more pleasant experience and we will definitely be returning.

What a lovely place. Very very clean and small enough that the children can have a lot of independence. Showers always very hot and toilets always very clean.

Lovely wooded surround, shop stocks everything one needs in an emergency. We only stayed for two nights and was great for everything we needed.

The owners clearly care very much about the service they provide. Lovely little touches like a fridge and washing line provided.

Really enjoyed it here - top tip, only soft foam footballs are allowed for children to play with!

Stayed at this campsite for 2 nights with my husband and son. We were visiting Brands Hatch for the weekend and this site was only a 10 minute drive from the circuit.

The site itself was very well maintained, lovely big pitches (no worries that our 8ft tent might not fit!) Shower/toilet block was lovely and clean, nice hot powerful showers!

The little play park was perfectly situated in the middle so no matter where you pitch, you can watch the children.

A folder is available in the kitchen area with sample menus from local pubs and takeaways and another with local places to visit, as well as a good choice of books for you to borrow.

When we arrived, Dave showed us to our pitch and explained some of the site rules. He even lent us a mains hook up after we brought the wrong one! Both Dave and Karen are very welcoming and helpful.

Overall this was a lovely, well kept and welcoming campsite and we will definitely be returning!

My son has stayed here a couple of times and said it's really nice.

So we came down for the weekend with our unit as well and yes it is a very well kept site very clean and tidy toilets are spotless the owners work very hard to make your stay relaxing and friendly.

The shop is very well stocked and keenly priced no need to go shopping for anything. They have all the info for eating out and visting local places.

And their local butcher does some wicked burgars, chicken lamb and do try the sausages note always fresh delivered you can order the papers as well for next day.

If your leaving Mon or Tues you can buy a sausage & bacon Freshly cooked bap for a £1 saves all the cooking just another lovely touch to a lovely site

We have just spent 3 nights at Gate House Wood and can confidently say we will be returning to this campsite. We received a very warm welcome from Dave and Karen on arrival and they were on hand throughout our stay if needed.

On arrival Dave guided us to our pitch and explained the site rules and facilities.

The site is well taken care of and the kitchen and toilet / shower blocks were always clean with plenty of hot water.

Our daughter (9) made new friends quickly and the play area was ideally located allowing parents to watch from afar whilst given her a little independence. In an ideal world a few more toddler friendly play equipment would have been great for our 19 month old but having said that it certainly didnít spoil our stay.

On our departure day Dave organised a leavers breakfast. This consisted of large Sausage or bacon baps for a £1. The smell of this cooking first thing in the morning was heaven especially as it was wet and a bit cold. This was great value for money considering the quality products used. This was a real treat at the end of a lovely break.

The site has a well stocked shop but major towns are close by if you want to venture out.

Keep up the good work and we hope to be back very soon.

We have just returned from two nights at this site. The owners were exceptionally helpful and pleasant, nothing was too much trouble.

The site itself was perfect for us. Facilities were clean, site was quiet at night, shop particularly good, eating places within walking distance if needed.

The setting is rural but with access to main routes and being an old quarry there was no need for hard standing even though we had a motorcaravan.

Although we no longer holiday with children the site was perfect for families with five to ten year olds who just want to play together safely with new found friends.

A visit to Ightham Mote rounded off the weekend.
