Description

Pitches: 20

Opening Dates: Open All Year

Award 3 stars for its campsite by Visit England 2011/2012.
This Family run site is ideal for people travelling abroad with the Eurotunnel's Channel Tunnel less than 2 miles away which makes us the closest and Dover just 15 minutes with a caravan. It's also a brilliant position for people touring Kent with Ashford, Canterbury and the coast only 15 minutes away. 2012 limited hardstandings giving 365 days availability.

We offer a good range of home cooked pub food and 4 Real Ales.

Originally called Ye Olde Drum.

It was built in 1708 at a time when this part of Kent maintained a high level of military activity and was frequented regularly by the Duke of Marlboroughs regiment.

In 1760, a fierce battle took place at the foot of Stone Street between a gang of smugglers and revenue men.
The leader of the smugglers, one Samuel Jackson, shot and killed a revenue officer and wounded another before being captured and subsequently hanged. Two members of his gang escaped and took refuge in an old stone barn that stood where the car park is today.


They were found and flogged in the courtyard to the obvious delight of the soldiers at the Inn. They were sent to Maidstone to await trial and eventually they too were hanged.

When the stone barn was pulled down to make way for the car park, a hoard of treasures were found, including two tubs of contraband gin, a smugglers flash, a blunderbuss pistol and the original Inn Sign.
The pub still maintains it's character.
