Reviewer: Dunernin 13 reviews from this member

 We over-nighted here on our way down to the Eurotunnel terminal.

Very conveniently placed to the motorway junction.

One downside is that there are no pubs or restaurants within easy walking distance.

Would use again as an overnight stop

 We stayed here as we were going to a wedding. The staff were so helpful could not do enough for you. That we're friendly answered any queries we had provided us when asked with a taxi number.

The site was spotlessly clean especially the facilities for showering. They were really well kept. A lovely place very close to Leeds Castle.

Only 20 minute walk into Bearatead which has lovely pubs and restaurants. A nice quiet location great to relax and just kick back.

If you want a nice relaxing place to stay of excellent quality then this is the place. Laundry facilities on site.

Reviewer: Delboy1uk 23 reviews from this member

 We have just returned from this site and I cannot believe this is the same site as the last reviewer. On arrival the staff were friendly & helpful and gave us a choice of empty plots.

The shower / toilet block was always spotlessly clean & warm, as for the radio far from being too loud in there, it was at a pleasant level and made the surroundings feel more comfortable & homely.

The grounds were kept spotless and grass well cut. The staff were really helpful and friendly and always willing to have a chat.

The only downside, and it is only a small one, is you do get some road noise from the nearby M20, which reflects in my marking it down one point in my review scores on location, but after a day we just got used to it.

Would we stay again ? We have already booked another two weeks 

Date of Visit: October 2016 Unit:  Campervan
Reviewer: Ian-james 14 reviews from this member

 A well-kept site convenient for the M20, but that comes with some traffic noise.

You are allocated a pitch even when the site has plenty of room.

When we were there the shop was empty, the radio was permanently on very loudly in the washrooms and the warden was grumpy and couldn't even bring himself to say good morning.

A shame as this used to be a nice friendly site.

Reviewer: David7773 2 reviews from this member

 We went here for the weekend 8/4/16 and never before have we been to a place with such clean nicely painted smell nice and heated toilet / showers

Even the whole camp site is so clean tidy and well looked after. We will definitely go back and how helpful the owners are

 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.

Reviewer: Paul@Bank 138 reviews from this member

 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.

Reviewer: Wooltman 20 reviews from this member

 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.

Reviewer: Janetpeacock 7 reviews from this member

 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. 

Date of Visit: August 2013 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: BobR56 1 review from this member

 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.
