Easy site to find and very well located - short 5 min walk into the village of Sandwich, which is quaint and picturesque, yet has an abundance of cash points, bars, restaurants, a supermarket.

Site clearly laid out, and was given a good corner plot by the nice receptionists. You have to drive through the caravan area to get to the Touring park, and I did think I was glad not to be staying in a caravan, as there were situated very close to each other.

Tent pitches are well-spaced, we went for a serviced pitch with electric hook up and water, and tv aerial (which we didn't use).

The facilities block is very large, for the men there were cubicles for showers (5 - not sure this was enough really?), wash basins and toilets. Was all very clean, but as I said, was more like being in a swimming pool changing rooms than a campsite facilities block. So slightly strange atmosphere. Also, the water pressure for the showers was pretty abysmal, although the water was hot, it just dribbled out.

Felt a bit sorry for those camping on the pitches directly opposite the toilet/shower block, as it was very noisy and lots of kids seemed to hang around there.

Family friendly site = quite noisy in terms of kids playing and riding around on bikes, until night fall.

Didn't hear the trains as in previous reviews.

Site wardens whizz around on karts.

Overall, it's a good site, would iron out the water pressure, but the location and village of Sandwich itself outweigh any minor bad points.

We stayed and Sandwich on August bank holiday for 3 nights in our touring caravan

This site is laid out well and flat, the toilet and shower block is very modern,

We paid 90 for the weekend, which is the usual price for a bank holiday weekend but this site has no shop, club or pool, so in this case the price was high.

There was a marquee and on Saturday night with a small bar supplied by a local pub there was also a singer who was very good, but it was freezing in the marquee due to our typical August bank holiday weather, wet, windy and cold.

We found the receptionist very rude and blunt, which was not a nice welcome, but reading other peoples comments she may having been having a bad day.

But overall a clean site but basic and expensive for what you get.

Initial impressions were good, big pitches, clean site. Reception was 'okay' in a cant be bothered but we will get around to seeing you sometime soon. The toilets seemed to be the youth club in the evenings with courting teenagers screeching at each other as you passed by them to get in. Didn't mind the train noise, or even the old man who kept shuffling around with his trousers around his ankles ! ?, but the absolutely worst thing ever was a HUGE party of a parent/ teacher group of families who were all still going strong at 3am in the morning, with small children running around the tents with torches and noisy guns, whilst their parents carried on drinking. What a night that was. No policing by any sort of security made for a very long night which ended up with some of them fighting amongst themselves. On a plus point we did have a bit of a giggle at the 'decorated caravans' with all of the fairy lights and ornaments outside.

Just returned from 4 night stay at this site. Site is easy to find and arrival and booking in process was easy and welcome.

Site is flat, well laid out with plenty of space between pitches. The are quite a few high hedge pitches which gives you good protection from any bad weather situations.

Toilets are new, clean and modern and campsite is clean and tidy. The site offers a fridge and freezer area and also a microwave for fast food heating etc.

The site is situated next to a railway line which has trains running regularly through the day and evenings. We heard a couple over night pass. There are about 15 pitches hard against the railway line fencing so avoid these if you can.

Site is well placed for the town of Sandwich there is a good co op superstore within 5 min walk from site. Town has good fast food outlets and has a wide range of pubs all within 5/10mins walk from campsite. We went to one recommended by owners for evening meal called the Kings Arms. Its is on the expensive side but the food was excellent.

Overall its a site we will return too in the future

Overall its a site we will go back to.

Second visit to this campsite and again we were of the opinion that if you don't like it here, you will never like camping! Plus points include:

Large, marked pitches, mostly separated by shrubs. There are some pitches where you can book 2 side by side to effectively create 1 super pitch. Though they seem not to attract the large loud groups you might expect with this facility.

Clean shower rooms, with enough units

Fire pits (raised BBQs) allowed

Children's activity at one end rather than in the middle, so you could avoid it by pitching at the other end! They even kindly warned us a family of 'lots of kids' were booked for later & on which pitch, so we could choose accordingly (cue lots of couples at the other end of the field!)

Sandwich itself - lovely seafood restaurant by the Quayside.

The only bad thing was that they allowed a new entry in on Sunday morning at 8. 15am, who promptly woke everyone up whilst setting up his caravan.

This was our second time at this site, as it's close to home and with a group of 7 pitches we can get all together. No real issues with the overall site.

The shower block is clean, but feel with the water pressure being so bad in the showers that you have to spend 3 times longer in the shower. There is only about 5 showers in the mens, so tailbacks are going to be regular coupled with the bad water pressure.

This site is not a cheap site, but for a night or 2 has not put us off.

They have been updating areas of the site, so be warned of building work. The play area seems to work well for the kids and the surrounding pub's, takeaways, shops and attractions are very close with sandwich being a friendly place to visit.
