Having not been camping for a number of years, this was a little gem to ease our way back in! We have just returned from a 4 night break at this site. It was a last minute decision to go away and we are REALLY glad we did. (Two adults, 10yr old and 16yr old plus two tents and a car). The site is fantastic. Quiet, clean, flat pitches. Although we didn't use one, there are electric hook up pitches available for both tent and caravan. The owners are really great, very accommodating and always happy to help. There is one toilet block with enough facilities to cope with the number of pitches and we didn't have to queue to use showers etc at all. There is a washing up section and although we didn't use it, a chemical toilet emptying facility. They are also spotlessly clean and tidy and there is plenty of hot water too. The rubbish station is well catered for with bins for recycling, COLD BBQ coals and general rubbish. If you are after a site with playground and 'stuff for kids', then this is not for you. However, there is a wood for walking in and Herne Bay is only a short drive away with plenty of parking. There is a Morrisons in Herne Bay and a local 'village store' not far from the site. We also found a 24hr Asda only a few miles towards Canterbury. Canterbury itself is really close for a good day out and we used the Sturry road park and ride (only 10 minutes down the road). Over all a fantastic break and we'll definitely be back. Thanks D & D for a great service.

This is the very best camp site we have ever stayed on. Surrounded by lush green fields, beautiful deciduous trees in full leaf and nothing to hear but birdsong. We had the camping field mostly to ourselves and it was heavenly, perfectly flat and well mown, with wild flowers bursting along the edges. Very lovely indeed, as is the neighbouring horse Sonny and the gorgeous baby bunnies playing among the buttercups. The night sky is simply amazing and it was bliss to sit out at midnight looking at the stars with owls swooping over our heads.

The toilets and showers are the cleanest and best equipped we have ever encountered. The site itself is very peaceful and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful. There is much to do in the area, with lovely beaches in Herne Bay, walks along the open coast at Reculver and all the interesting history and architecture of Canterbury nearby.

I would highly recommend this site if you love nature and a quiet life. Had we not had to return home we would still be there.

Lovely site down a dead end lane. Beautiful flat field away from the electric hook ups was nice and quiet. Very little traffic noise could be heard.

Convenient location for getting to Whitstable, Herne Bay and Canterbury. A couple of local pubs looked to be within walking distance (didn't use them myself) and served food. Showers were the cleanest I have ever seen!

Rabbits in the field, and yes, you can hear the wolves howl! No dogs, no children's play things, didn't venture into the woods, I didn't know you could until I saw the previous review, so that could have been better sign posted!

I'm not going to say too much because I'd like to keep this one to myself, thank you! The field had been mowed, and the grass left to dry, so we did bring a lot of grass home with us.

However, the people opposite appeared with a rake, not sure if they took it with them or borrowed it from the owner, but don't forget your dustpan and brush at the least!

What a fantastic campsite. Down a country lane and idyllic peace and quiet. Showers/washing up facilities very clean and tidy.

Atmosphere very friendly and Derek and Doreen always on hand for help and advice. If you have a car you can visit Faversham, Whitstable, Herne Bay and Minnis Bay plus all the countryside and walks.

Not many places to eat nearby but Herne Bay high street and main superstores near by for stocking up supplies.

Will go back next year. Braggs Farm is a fantastic get away from the rat race

Very pleasant little site tucked away along a narrow dead end lane. The loo and showers are small but well kept and clean. Part of the site is used for caravan storage but the individual pitches are large and flat.

There are no facilities to entertain kids and dogs are not allowed. Footpaths lead into a large wood. The paths seem to go for miles and there are some very attractive walks.

Wild Wood animal reserve is less than a mile away and at dusk the Wolfs can be heard having a good old howl!

As mentioned in a previous review the Butchers Arms at Herne is a great little pub to visit for real ale and banter. Not for lager lovers or Sky sport punters though. The pub on the hill nearest the campsite is a bit of a seventies time warp.

Yes great little site I would use again.

This is a really fantastic site. We camped over a bank holiday weekend but were able to get an entire field to ourselves, with just a horse and some rabbits for company in the next field - heavenly! The toilets and shower were always really clean - only one shower but as it's not a huge site there never seemed to be any queues. Plenty of hot water and the shower was free. Nice to have hot water in the washing up station too and at 12 per night it was cheaper than some other nearby campsites.

There is one OK-ish pub half a mile walk away, but it's absolutely worth the extra mile walk to the Butchers Arms in Herne - a micro-pub with real ales and seats for just 6 people, and absolutely worth a visit. They opened at odd times though so worth calling ahead to check its open.

Re things to do Herne Bay is worth a visit (especially the traditional Pie and Mash restaurant on the seafront, just by the clock tower), but nearby Whitstable had more to see and do. We can recommend hiring bikes and cycling the 7 mile Crab and Winkle Way to Canterbury. Margate is also nearby and worth a visit for the Turner Contemporary art gallery.

Fantastic campsite, fantastic area, we will definitely be back!
