We have previously used the Black Horse Farm site when getting the ferry from Dover, but wondered if there is a site close to the Tunnel with good dog-walking (doesn't need to be off-lead but part of the walk away from a road would be nice) straight from the site.
We don't need a full facilities site as long as we have the basics plus electricity and it has decent road access.

Don't forget to leave a review of the campsites you have visited this year or last!

We too use Black Horse Farm . I know that it isn't direct from the site, but there is access to fields behind the bus shelter opposite the pub.

Freedom is a light caravan and an open road.

The closest site to the Tunnel is The Drum Inn at Stanford North which is just off junction 11 (about 4 miles from the Tunnel) - sorry I'm not sure how to link in reviews.
The road through the village is fairly quiet and looking at the map there appear to be a number of off road footpaths (we haven't used any personally).
Only one thing to take into account with this site - the slope to the camping field was quite steep last time we were there, if you have a long outfit there is a danger of grounding the rear on the way out.

We have been going here for years. Great walks literally 2-3 minutes from site gate, where you enter a field and can get great off lead walks along the edge of numerous fields.

We stay there whilst going to Tunnel and coming back, I think it's about 11-12 miles to the Tunnel and is really pretty easy to get to from the motorway.

Also a huge Tesco about 5 minutes from the site.

XVI yes?

As well is two words!
How does a sage know everything about everything? or does he? or does he just think he does?
Remember, if you buy something you bought it, not brought it.
