Reviewer: Ninganing 1 review from this member

 We made a late booking to spend the weekend here and have already decided to go back very soon for a longer break! The team were incredible friendly and helpful, couldn't do enough for us. The toilets were spotless as were all the facility areas. The grounds were well maintained with plenty of room in between pitches. There is a small shop with essentials or an Asda close by. Small dog walking area on site and a larger off the lead area just over the road. Very close to Sandwich, which is a lovely little town as well as the fantastic sights in Canterbury. Would highly recommend this place!

 We spent a very pleasant - but wet - few days here. The people were very friendly and helpful.

The site is walking distance from Canterbury, but it's not a particularly nice walk - luckily, the bus stop is nearby. Plenty of things to see, and many very good restaurants there.

We were parked right under the power cables, but didn't have any problems or notice any noise at all.

There are some nice pubs a short drive away, serving excellent food.

Howletts is a wonderful place to visit. We saw animals there we had never seen before.

We would stay here again.

 We visited this site over the late may bank holiday. Site was lovely and clean, it has a small shop stocking the bare essentials, and a nice playarea. We were allocated a pitch very near the shop(would have liked a choice) and told which direction to pitch it!(it was quite a small pitch), more suited to a campervan. We were the only tent in that area, so think they assumed we were camping in our t25, not a tent.
The site has two toilet blocks which were both spotless and we didn't have to queue at all. Showers in the block near us were in very small cubicles,and I would have struggled to get the kids in with me.
There is a bus stop just outside the site which takes you into canterbury, or you could walk it in about 25 mins.
The site is situated near a busy road and I did notice the noise the first night, after this either I got used to it or it is quieter of a weekend.
Howletts zoo is close by and we had a fabulous day there. The gorilla's were amazing. The restaurant in the zoo was very reasonably priced for food, but the drinks were pricey.
We would definitely visit canterbury again but would request a pitch toward the back of the site, because they seemed to have more open space there, and I think it would be quieter away from the road.

 Stayed here with friends on the bank holiday and really only booked it as couldn't get into other CCC sites we'd visited before, but what a find. We were fortunate to be pitched in a quiet wooded area (away from the pylons) and it was idyllic. Lots of rabbits in the early mornings/evenings. Even with a very big party of foreign students in the rally field the loos and showers were always spotless, and with two good sized blocks it was never a problem if they were busy. Also nice washing up places, both inside and outside.

We were surprised at how much there was to do in this corner of Kent, and had a great long weekend.

 Spent caravan and camping week at this site although we only booked in for 3 nights we decided to book in for another 2 and the Manager and Staff went out of there way to make us more than welcome . The on site shop was well stocked but for your main shop Asda was just down the road
The shower and toilet block were kept very clean with plenty of hot water day and night. The pitch was more than big enough with room for your car. Very quite at night and plenty of rabbits
Will be going back again soon highly recommended

 My girlfriend and I stayed here last summer. Great site and joined the C&CC on the back of our stay here. Site was very well kept, designated pitches but ample room between tents. Site was relatively quiet when we stayed (except for the hundreds of midnight rabbits that came out - great fun to watch). No noise, facilities were very clean, showers hot and powerful, well stocked info office and shop. Location good too, nice range of local pubs, restaurants and take aways.

Will be more than happy to stay here again.

 Pleasant site in a nice location. We visited this site as a party of 3 tents and although there was lots of room on site we were shepherded to our pitches on the edge of the field and were checked on that we did not go outside our allocated space - which could have been difficult if we had a larger family tent (our biggest tent was 5 man dome). We think this was because a large party turned up the following day, taking over the middle (and majority!) of the field. The toilet facilities were sufficient, if a little muddy, but again this was probably down to the large party that arrived. Having read the reviews about the power cables we looked out for these and noticed no noise whatsoever.

 Very good campsite. Staff were welcoming and friendly. Camp shop stocked the essentials. Toilet/shower block was clean, well lit, with plenty of hot water. Children's play area was appreciated (needed a slide though!). There was no trouble with our large tent (Vango Diablo 600) - generous sized pitches. Fellow campers mostly families. No noise late at night. Local Indian restaurant delivers to the site! Asda just up the road. Thoroughly recommended.

Reviewer: Gingawarrior 82 reviews from this member

 This site reminded me of a modern, recently built premiership football stadium, in that it was immaculate, well laid out, great facilities, open and spacious and very hard to fault. However, like modern football stadiums, maybe it lacked character and soul that is needed to turn a very good campsite into a truly great campsite.

Would this campsite suffice for a couple of days stop over to see the picturesque city of Canterbury? Yes, definitely. Would this campsite satisfy on a full weeks holiday in the height of summer, no, afraid not.

I had read the previous reviews about the noise and electric cables, which fortunately had not put me off visiting and upon returning from my trip and reading the reviews again I realised that I had noticed neither whilst there.
