Stayed a night before getting the tunnel to France. Easy to find. Good access to tunnel. Near to large Sainsbury's for fuel before getting train. Stayed on a ferry pitch. Pub over the road - bit eccentric and food a bit over priced for what it was. Facilities what you would expect from a club site.

We stayed here for one night prior to getting the Eurotunnel to France. It is a lovely site with loads of rabbits! Laid out in various areas including one for ferry pitches. There is some construction work going on but we didn't find it a problem. The facilities are standard caravan club, very clean and tidy. Reception were efficient and helpful.

We had a meal at the Black Horse which serves typical pub food at an acceptable price.

Not far to supermarkets and petrol to stock up before going to France.

Very handy for the Tunnel but also would be nice for a holiday as loads to do and see in the area.

We woud definitiely use again.

Just got back from a weekend break at this campsite. Despite being run by the Caravan club, the site welcome tent users, though it only has a few spaces for tents, none of which have electric hook-up(which didn't bother us). Really well run site with clean showers and toilets. No queues whilst we were there. Good washing-up, laundry and drying facilities. Well placed site with small shop and decent pub within 5 minutes walk. Great location for exploring south and east Kent and, as others have said, for getting the ferry/Eurotunnel. Small playground and dog walking area. Would definitely recommend if you want to visit this part of the country.

This is just an update from my previous review last September. During our visit in May the site had major works going on which involves the building of a new reception building at the entrance. At the lower toilet block they have added a separate disable toilet/shower facilities.

To find site:- Continue to the end of the M20 towards Dover, just past the tunnel on the A20 take slip road signed for A 260 and follow signs for Canterbury. The first part of this road is new and bypasses some of the narrower parts of the old road which it rejoins near to Densole, continue through village and the site is just past the Black Horse Inn on the left. Pre-booked one night stopovers have to be paid for in advance of arrival, no UK arrivals after 8. 00pm.

Site is open all year and accepts non-members and tents. I would think that it would be advised to book ahead in peak season. This is a nice site situated about 10 miles from Dover and about 8 miles from Eurotunnel. As a result those making their way back and forth to the Port, or the Tunnel, frequently use it. The site has a special Ferry Area, all hardstandings, immediately behind reception for early departures to minimise disturbance to longer stay campers. One nighters my also be allocated pitches in the main site. The rest of the site is a mix of grass and hardstanding pitches although in recent years more hardstanding have been added. There is a small area for tents with itís own separate parking area. The tree planting and shrubs are just starting to mature which enhances the look and feel of the site. Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 16 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. Likewise service points are dotted around the site and a motorhome service point is near to reception although still requires heavy drain covers to be lifted. There are two really excellent toilet blocks at either end of the site although the one near the ferry area closes very early for cleaning. Other facilities include a childrenís play area, a dog walk and an information room. This site also has storage facilities. Black Horse Farm has WiFi installed and time may be purchased online.

Whilst the site is used a lot for people going to and from the ferries Black Horse Farm is well worth a stay in itís own right with lots to do in the area. There is a regular bus service between Canterbury and Folkestone with a bus stop near the site entrance. Just across the road from the site is a small general store, which includes a Post Office. Further along the road is the Black Horse Inn, which serves food, we enjoyed our meal when we visited but they only accept cash payment. There are many other opportunities to explore the surrounding are if you stay is longer than just over night. At Hawkinge there is a caravan dealer.

Like many others we stayed here just one night before our ferry back to France. The site office was closed when we arrived in the evening but the warden appeared immediately after we pressed the bell, we hadnít booked but we were advised that there was no problem and a pitch was found for us. As usual for a CC site the toilet and shower facilities were spotless, warm and dry, and this was November, however, weíre no longer CC members and the cost of staying on one of their sites is high.

The site is convenient for the channel crossings, easy to find with friendly and helpful wardens and maintained to the highest standard, there is a pub a short stroll away and a general store for any basic provisions you might need opposite the site entrance. I canít really find anything to criticise Ė except the price, but then if I were still a club member Iíd expect non-members to pay more.
