To Find Site:- Leave M20 at junction 8, Maidstone. Take A20 and at roundabout follow signs to Bearstead. The campsite is a few hundred yards along road on left. No arrivals before 1. 00pm.

Non-members are accepted. There are a mix of grass and hardstanding pitches with some of the hardstanding ones being fully serviced. There is only one waste disposal point which is centrally situated on the site. There are additional water taps placed statically around the campsite. The main site facility building is at the site entrance and contains reception, toilets and showers, laundry and dish wash. In the laundry is the information points. The toilet/showers are kept immaculate and are of an excellent standard. Reception sells a few essentials. Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 16 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. Television reception is classed as poor but the electric bollards do have a TV hook-up but you need to provide your own co-ax cable. There is site wide Wi-Fi. There is not much on site for children except a small playground in on corner of the site. Given the sites proximity to the M20 some road noise will be experienced.

This site is an ideal base for exploring this part of Kent. Leeds Castle is almost on the doorstep. Maidstone is only a few miles away. There is a bus stop immediately outside the campsite with services between Ashford and Maidstone. For shopping there are a couple of large supermarkets within 5 miles. For many this will be a stopping off point to and from the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone and the ferries at Dover.

Leeds Castle provides the draw to this site. The truly delightful castle (promoting itself as ‘the Loveliest Castle in the World) and superb gardens is only 1 mile from the site. It’s worth noting that Caravan Club members get a 25% discount when paying on the door and producing card – don’t use the pre-booking as you only get 10% off! The tickets provide 12 months access into the Castle.

The site itself offers generous pitches and a spacious flat site. Toilet/facilities block is up the usual very high CC standard. On arrival and travelling as a party of two units we found our pitches had been allocated by the warden prior to arrival – not what you expect on a first come, select your own norm on CC sites, but worth noting if you are travelling as a group.

Background traffic noise is however constantly present from the busy M20 and less busy A20.

Great for a couple of nights with Castle visit in mind, or stop over on route to Dover.

This is our first Caravan Club site and we were very pleased. Good size pitches on hard standing, they also have some serviced and grass pitches. We stayed for five nights, we did hear some road noise but it didn't bother us at all. The site is very clean and is handy for visiting the area. This site would be very handy for a nights stop over if travelling to or from the channel crossings.

We made a visit to Maidstone using the Park and Ride which is about a mile from the site.

Bearsted has one of the best Chinese take away we have ever tasted, lovely!

The only thing we would have liked to have seen would be another toilet block, as the one they have is a fair way from the far side of the site.

We would visit this site again.

We were a bit dubious about this site because of the comments about road noise however we were very pleasantly surprised.

The site is as you expect of Caravan Club, neat and tidy, good and helpful wardens, all facilities available and working (really nice showers!)and the pitches were well spaced giving privacy.

We could hear the road and railway but after a short while you didn't notice it any more and it certainly didn't disturb our sleep. Might be different if you were sitting outside but being December we didn't do this.

Easy to find and very well placed to explore the local area and beyond.

Quiet clean and well maintained site. Wardens couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Usual caravan club standard with well thought out facilities. Only criticism is position of toilets and showers being close to reception so not central. Only a small one as the site is not that big.

The road noise other people have mentioned is easily ignored after a few minutes. Will visit again.

Ps. Make sure you follow the instructions as the entrance is immediately after a left hand bend and the sign isn't obvious. Sat nav will try to send you into a farm on the right.

We stopped on our return from France, with a touring caravan, we were allocated a pitch within the grassed area, not the easiest for levelling!. We experienced some traffic noise but not enough to cause a disturbance. The toilet/shower block was absolutely pristine, a credit to the wardens as is the general upkeep of the whole site. A perfect stopover if you need it, but also a good position for visiting the area.
