Reviewer: Goodintentions 3 reviews from this member

We booked this very last minute for three nights at the tail end of half term. We'd enquired via UKCampsites. Co. Uk, along with three other sites in the area, and Solley's Farm was the only one who bothered to reply!

As we only have a Campervan we have not stayed on a CL before as we need the facilities normally only provided by more commercial sites. This was therefore a very nice exception as it has everything you need and at 14 a night including hook-up, was very reasonable. Even though the facilities are not on the field, I have had to walk further to find toilets on larger sites.

There wasn't room for us on the field on the first night, so we parked on the hardstanding area adjacent, which is thickly gravelled and slightly sloping, but nothing a couple of ramps wouldn't solve. There is a hook-up facility here for several vans although we were the only ones using it.

The second night we moved into the field, which is nicely sheltered by trees and a slight hill, with plenty of birdsong and the gentle sound of sheep and horses in the neighbouring field. Others have mentioned road noise but really this was minimal during the hours when we were there. Each pitch on the road side of the field has its own tap - very handy.

The facilities are very good with automatic lighting and heating. There are two toilets, a sink and a shower, which has very detailed and helpful instructions for use. You can use 10p, 20p, 50p, 1 or 2 or even euro coins. As a 1 gets you 10 minutes, and so does a Euro, you definitely get a better deal with euros! The shower was clean although the curtain could do with replacement or cleaning. There is an honesty box in the toilet block with envelopes provided for people to pay their camping fees - we did meet the owner on our first morning but he was very relaxed about when we should pay so we used the box to pay on our last morning before departure.

As campervanners who decided not to use our awning since we were only there for a short stay, we did find it necessary to mark our pitch with one of the cones thoughtfully provided near the water tap - there is nothing to stop anyone turning up and taking the pitch while you're out otherwise.

The site is very handy for Deal and Walmer which have a castle each. We visited Walmer which is not easy to find using Satnav and is only open at weekends I believe, but well worth a visit. The gardens alone are beautiful and the castle is well presented and interesting, run by English Heritage. There's a very nice teashop as well. Sandwich is a picturesque little town with lots of medieval architecture and some nice eateries, and Broadstairs is a typical English seaside town with a beautiful beach and some lovely views. About 13 miles south along the coast between Dover and Folkestone is the Battle of Britain memorial which was informative and thought provoking and in a beautiful situation at the top of the famous white cliffs, giving views across the channel to France.

There are two pubs in the village of Great Mongeham but only one serves food, and only until 6 pm, so we had to venture further to find evening meals. We were unsuccessful in finding anything of note and would recommend self-catering.

Great little site. The toilets and shower are top of the range for a cl site, we found the owner very helpful and will spend time with each group as with us he had a nice cold beer on the hot day. The only down was traffic noise but you get use to it, 'will go back' lots to see Deal and Dover castles a must also walmer house.

Wow, we have just stumbled on a gem of a site here. Set in what must be one of the most stunning locations on the isle of wight. We spent most of our first day just looking out at the stunning panoramic sea view over Bembridge bay and st helens fort. We watched huge cruise ships heading off on there travels, the view is breath taking. The site on this working farm is fab to. You are made very welcome by Julie and Clive the owners, plenty of room on your pitches in the grass paddock with electric hook up and all the usual facilities that are well appointed. An added bonus is The view cafe located at the entrance to the farm selling some great food if you want to be lazy or just indulge yourself.

This has to be our best campsite find to date and we do visit plenty of campsites on our travels, waking up in the morning surrounded by nearby farm animals great views and nice people, what more could you ask for.

Give them a call and get booked in before everyone finds this rare gem. I've booked my hols for next year.

Reports on this site encouraged us to book for one night, as we had a four hour drive in the UK and an earlyish ferry to catch. We arrived to be greeted like 'old friends' although we have never been here before. The pitch was exactly right, hard standing and close to the exit for a speedy departure without rousing the other campers. The brand-new loo block is first class about two minutes walk from the camping field and spotlessly clean. We will certainly use the site again, it's just so handy for Dover, and Deal is a nice seaside town in its own right. Make sure that you have either a large-scale map, a really good satnav, or download the map from your computer though, it's just a little tricky to access the first time. From the road it looks more like a 'horsy stuff shop'. Camping is just behind and a flat wide drive when you locate it. Excellent site!

We have a folding camper and decided to use this site as a one night stop before a ferry to France. Decided on this site after reading the reviews. They could not be more accurate. This is a great site. The owners are extremely attentive to keeping the site immaculate and are doing a great job. Yes the waste disposal is over the road but it's no problem really and the road noise is not intrusive. Lovely grass level pitches with room for about five with a hard standing area for late nighters. A truly wonderful site with easy access to the ferries. If you need a site before your sailing this is the one for you. Be aware there's not much here for the children. Just peace and quiet.

What can I say that hasn't been said already. A lovely quiet little site well placed near channel ports and the tunnel.

The toilet facilities are lovely, but the waste disposal wasn't great. The hard standing area is a good idea if the ground is likely to be soft; you can get about 4 vans on the hard standing area but it does leave you rather close to your neighbours.

Didn't get round to checking out the local drinking establishments, but all in all I'd definitely recommend a stay. 12 a night - bargain!
