Reviewer: Suephiltommysam 1 review from this member

2 families of 2 adults 2 children. 10/9/7/7yrs

Made reservation by email. Correspondence was very friendly.

Check in was quick and easy, although the lady appeared to be having a bad day and was not the friendliest.

We were travelling with friends and had booked 2 pitches, which were located one behind the other.

Warden patrol very frequent.

No nice views, but flat grassy pitch.

Toilets were never too busy. Very clean. Showers didn't have much pressure, but lovely and hot.

Great location for town. Less than 10 minutes walk. Good choice of restaurants / pubs.

Only 10 minutes drive to Deal, which has a great leisure pool for the kids with slides and wave machine. Beach is pebbles.

Deal castle is well worth a visit also.

Plenty of local attractions for the kids.

The only down side was that the kids love cycling around on camping holidays, and this site was not really child friendly for that. They are very strict about kids cycling the correct way around the one way system, and they were told only to cycle in the 'top' field, even though the kids play area (which had cycle stands) was in another part of the camp. The kids area by the way was great for younger kids. Max age is 12yrs but most enjoyed by younger ones. (8yrs ish)

The camp has a bouncy castle for kids.But costs 1 for 10 minutes. So was empty most of the time. There is a fast food stand open at weekends. Quite handy if you don't want to cook. 2.00 for a bacon butty.

Site is quite noisy. It is right on a train line (not too many trains though) and you can hear the road noise most of the night. Being near the coast you get the seagulls from early morning. Oh and the church bells ring every hour, 24hrs a day. (if the wind is in the right direction you don't hear these)

We would return to this site, but it wouldn't be our first choice.

Just spent three nights here in our tent and we were very disappointed.

We were charged extra for a utility tent which we use to put our cooking equipment in which bumped up the price quite a bit, surely if you book a pitch you should be able to put whatever you want on it!

The toilets and showers were nice and clean although on one day the male toilets were completely shut at about 10am for cleaning!

The site is very close to a train track and although the trains didn't bother us too much they decided to do some rail maintenance at 4am on a Sunday morning, making a load of noise! Although this wasn't the camp sites fault it's something to bare in mind!

Sandwich is like a little village, lots of one-way and no-through roads so don't trust your sat nav too much unless its really up-to-date.

The pitches were ok but seem to be on top of each other, and everything has to be 3 metres away for everything else!

We love it here, this campsite is near to my step children, and only being one and a half hours away, it is great for our weekends. Having only bought our caravan less than a month ago, we have been here twice already!

I am mostly impressed with the cleanliness of the shower and toilet block, I saw them being cleaned at least twice in one day. The Owners are very friendly and accommodating.

The children love it here too, being able to ride there bikes is great fun for them and peaceful for us at the end of the day with them being so exhausted! I will continue to stay here again and again.

We have just returned having stayed on this site for a week. The weather has been great which has really helped. The site is lovely, spacious and very well cared for. It was handy having all services to the caravan too. They are certainly spending a lot on the site with improvements and although there is quite a bit of work going on it doesn't really cause any inconvenience.

There are quite a number of static vans on the site as you enter and all seem to be hemmed in but again very tidy. You drive through the statics and onto a very large camping field. There are a number of seasonal pitches and luckily bar a couple most didn't have pots of flowers outside (a real grumble of mine) most were occupied at weekends too and none looked neglected at all.

I felt that the pitch price should have probably been a little lower during week days as the facilities were reduced to the family area only. I felt it a bit awkward at the busy times, also perhaps music in this area would have been nice! The facilities were immaculately clean at all times including when the site was busy.

There are lots of cycle routes so well worth taking your bikes. The ride to Deal is only 5 miles and on a really quiet (flat) road. We used our bikes most of the week and they were handy for reaching the beach 2 1/2 miles away.

You can take your car down the the beach but as it is on a private estate you will have to pay a toll (I think about 6) but take everything you need for the day and you will be fine. There are loo's down there (clean) and the beach doesn't get too packed either.

Dover Castle and the cliffs well worth a visit and not very far away. Allow plenty of time to do both visits we took it over 2 days rather than cram it all in.

Definitely an area worth visiting and this campsite within walking distance made it all the better.

If you're taking someone camping for the first time try here, as if they don't like this, they will never 'get' camping. Mind you, you might also set their expectations very high!

3 things that I loved about this site:

1. The pitches, which are large and allocated. We opted for a superpitch just because I get touchy about people pitching virtually on top of you elsewhere, but there was not chance of this here. The pitch was very large and flat and had EHU, water etc - we would have been just as happy in a normal pitch, these were also extremely generous.

2. Fantastic shower block, which was never even remotely busy. The showers are good and the cubicles are big. Top marks also to the washing up area, which is spacious and undercover.

3. It's a short & pleasant walk to Sandwich, which has restaurants and bars as well as lots of sightseeing to do.

The toilets and showers are nice and clean. The site is situated a short walk from Sandwich. Which is good as you probably won't want to hang around on this site.

Arrived at reception where it was kicking off with disgruntled punters who had arrived to find out that they had been double booked. We were given our pitch, which we drive to to find out that it was. Double booked. Back to reception. Given another pitch. It was double booked! In the end we were given a caravan pitch.

We saw a picnic table and was told by a member of staff that no one was using it. Only to be told later by an understandably upset camper who's pitch it WAS on that the table was very much in use.

Every time I went to reception, there always seemed to be at least one person complaining. I can't see that there was much customer care going on either.

On top of that, against other reviews, I didn't find the camp spacious. Kind of looked like a refugee camp to me.

There are drainage ditches around the site. I may be wrong, but I didn't see any warning signs.

There's building work going on. I can't understand why they're doing this in the summer.

I was accused of burning the grass with a BBQ. I didn't use the BBQ on the grass. Tried to explain this, but it was like talking to a brick wall. The conversation was so soul destroying that I just walked away.

Can't say I'll be going back, which is a shame as I really like what Sandwich has to offer.
