Just returned from 3 nights at this fabulous site. This was our first stay and we will certainly be returning. The site is beautifully maintained, toilets and showers spotlessly clean, staff very friendly and helpful, well stocked shop and a lot of information about things to do in the surrounding area and take away menus, even a herb garden to help yourself from - a lovely touch! We stayed in the adult only area but went over to the family part of the site where there is a games room with table football, air hockey, skittles, pool table and a TV, a children's play area and large grass area for ball games. We just went to chill out but after seeing how much there is to do in the area we are now considering a seasonal pitch. Would recommend this site to both couples and families, so glad we found it.
Management response: Thank you very much for your comments, it is so good to read that you are thinking of a seasonal with us after your enjoyable stay. We look forward to seeing you again.
A very well cared for site with top class showers, loos and campers kitchen. The disabled toilet is probably the best I've seen anywhere. The fridge and freezer for food as well as ice packs is great.
The area called The Conifers and The Birches are most suited to families being that they are close to the play area and games room which has several pay-slot activities. There is a sizeable area here for ball games.
The Meadows is an open area near the newest shower block, which has hardstanding and grass for about 20 pitches. Nearby is the Top Meadows, a small field, again with around 20 grass pitches all with EHU around the edge. This field has a more ‘rural’ feel and has tall trees around it, which means that only pitches 21a – 23 get the late afternoon/evening sun. Worth checking when booking if you prefer sun to shade at that time of day.
There is some traffic noise which is really noticeable at night which kept me awake and then after dozing off, woke me at 5am each morning. It is for this reason I wouldn’t return to Broadhembury which really is such a well maintained site within easy reach of the more picturesque areas of Kent.
Management response: Thank you very much for your lovely comments, as always they are much appreciated and we are pleased you found the park well cared for and easy reach of the many charming areas of Kent. As you point out, here at Broadhembury visitors can choose a sunny or a shady pitch – very useful as many campers prefer to stay cool, while others want to top up their tan. It was unfortunate you were disturbed by road noise because the main road is over 3 miles away, however we do hope you will visit Kent again in the future.
This is an excellent site. We were on a hard standing in the adult field. The standing was super size with our camper van and awning there was still room for eating out without using the grassed area. Road noise mentioned by some was really not a problem, there is a local cockerel but he is not too enthusiastic. Toilet, showers, fridge, freezer and washing up facilities excellent. Washing up is indoors unusual and welcome. Toilets are regularly checked, someone was on duty at 10PM, yes PM.
Can't mention any other facilities as we didn't use them.
Position of site seems perfect to me, you can go north, south or east to any of the tourist traps in a reasonable time.
Locally Mount Ephriam (hope I spelt that right), is worth a visit and cheap at £6. 00 per adult.
One small caution, we downloaded some of the walks from the Broadhembury site, not compiled by the site owners I would add. The ones we tried had all been surveyed in the winter which made the attached pictures difficult to follow, ponds which were now hidden by vegetation etc. Biddenden B1 walk has been changed so much with new fencing and gates, etc, we gave up half way when we ran out of path.
Management response: Thank you so much for your lovely comments and delighted you enjoyed your stay. As you say regarding the walks it is difficult as walks can change, but we hope this will not deter you from visiting us again
This is an extremely well-managed and well-tended campsite. It is only a few miles from Ashford International train station, so would suit cyclists arriving by train. It is perfectly flat and the pitches are a good size. Picnic tables are a great touch. The facilities are very good, and cleaned regularly every morning at the same time. You need to work the timetable out so as to time your visit to the showers etc and avoid hanging around waiting.
A large Tesco is up the road for shopping and you can buy basic provisions in the site shop. On the down side you can hear the sound of traffic more or less everywhere on the site; whilst not too obtrusive, it makes the site feel urban rather than rural. There are a lot of rules and notices everywhere and there is an electric gate to access the pitches. It is annoying getting back from an outing to discover the key code changed and having to find someone to let you in!
Management response: Thank you for your comments, they are very valuable to us as we want to enrich our camper’s enjoyment at all times.
We were redirected to the adults field which turned out to be very open, lots of space and quiet - a bit too quiet even. Extremely clean and nice toilet block, free freezer and fridge to use for campers inside a separate campers 'kitchen' in the new toilet block. You could hear the sound of the road in the distance but this became never disturbing.
Big Tesco and great family pubs within only few minutes car driving distance.
Getting the camping slots organised at reception was sometimes a bit of chaos, not very organised.
The 'dog walk' was extremely short and narrow, not sufficient for our usual 15min walk, and there was not really another field or so to go to where it was nice to walk.
Although the campsite is close to Dover etc, we found it is not the ideal spot to visit the touristical areas, a bit too far away from the nicer parts of Kent.
Management response: We are sorry that your stay was not 100% standard and we thank you for your comments, positive or negative it is helpful to see Broadhembury through camper’s eyes as we are always looking to improve our practises for our camper’s. We have have beautiful walks around the park that we are happy to direct camper to and they are dog friendly.
