Reviewer: Jvc100 34 reviews from this member

 I agree with the previous review, this site has bags of potential.

- Close to the Beach

- Great walks along the coast, turn left and a 2 mile walk to the old ministry with a visitors center and pub. Turn right and a 10 minute walk to the Minnis Bay pub or café.

- The pub and café are nice and good value

The issues

- I could only find one drinking water tap next to the old toilet block. So the water for my van had to come up a slope then along to my van

- The chemical waste area was an IBC buried in the ground that you unscrewed and tipped in – revolting – it was also over grown with nettles

There is

O 1 Gents

O 1 Ladies

O 1 shower with WC and no were to put clothes, however once in the shower was good

O Shower curtain has mould on it

O In the brick block next to the main green block was another shower and WC – this not very clean with a birds nest.

This site is in an amazing position and there is a real lack of good sites in Kent. It is located minutes away from

- Whitstable

- Broadstairs

- Ramsgate

- Maragate

- Herne Bay

- For the shoppers – Westgate

I had the feeling that the owners were more interested in the riding stables and using the caravans to top up the income. With good management and some investment this site could be amazing.

 On arrival the reception showed us to our pitch but there is also a map inside and your name and pitch on a board in case no one is there. For 2 nights, 3 adults and a car our tent pitch cost only £32 which is one of the cheapest in the area with a beach location. The sea could be heard and a handy footpath means it is a 1 minute walk away and from there a 10 minute walk to Minnis Bay. The toilets were kept very clean and one could tell this was done daily. The washing up facilities and communal fridge and freezer in reception were very handy and there are two well spaced drinking water points and a waste disposal unit. The neighbouring equestrian centre caused no trouble with no noise or smell AT ALL, one wouldn't even know they were there. The staff are very nice and on hand with just a text, but usually someone is always at reception. Well spaced pitches and an even, easy-pitching terrain! Excellent stay and will be returning!

 Hired the clamping pod for a night, and it was utterly fabulous. Lovely site, friendly and helpful people, surrounded by horses, beautiful countryside and the sea. What more could anyone want. Just lovely. Got home 2 hours ago, rebooking already !

 We have stayed on this site a few times now in both a tent and now a caravan. This is one of the best sites we have stayed on as it is so unspoiled and quiet. Though basic (what we prefer) there is all you need at this site with very friendly owners and a fab close proximity to the beach with no traffic to dodge. For anyone who wants to take children camping I would highly recommend this site as it is safe and if they have bikes it is flat and safe for them to ride around and up to the beach. We loved the short walk to the pubs along the sea wall from both sides and another bonus is dogs are welcome on the site and all year on the beach. The site is also an equestrian center and the lovely horses are worth a look or a ride. Great value for money and looking forward to returning.

 Read the reviews and wasn't expecting much. Stayed on the 12 to 14 march 2017, loved the site, very quiet. Didn't need wc or shower so no comment. But will be booking again as I had a great time. Birchington is a small walk along the sea wall also had a riding lesson while I was there, great teacher. I cant recommend it enough. It does what it says on the tin

 No frills camping, but also totally laid back. The toilet facilities are fine, although not pretty and you have to pay £1 for a shower. Has EHU and waste water etc. But no washing up facilities that I could see, though that is not a problem for most. The beauty of the place is that it is a short stroll from miles of beautiful unspoilt coastline and there is a coastal path which you can walk or cycle for miles. Also great for dogs. There is a good restaurant at Minnis Bay, right on the front. Lovely food and views. There is a single track approach road, which is fine as long as nothing else is coming in the other direction ! We will definitely be back.

 This site is basically a field with a toilet and EHU. That doesn't sound anything to get excited about but it is. The location is fabulous! Surrounded by horses and 2 minutes from the beach, this site is a great base for cycling and walking. The Viking Trail runs along the beach and can be enjoyed by both cyclists and dog walkers. We were there in bright blue sky and full sun on Good Friday. The atmosphere was brilliant as people enjoyed strolling between Minnis Bay and Reculver. The cyclists respected the crowds and there was a pleasant mingling of bikes, dogs and people.

The scone at the café at Minnis Bay was Gorgeous!

The owner was pleasant and came for payment the following morning.

 We stayed here for a week of good weather after our return from abroad. It's a nice enough site, a bit pricy at £14, plus you have to pay an extra £1 for the shower which we thought was a bit of a cheek, so we didn't use it. It looked ok though. There are also 2 loos which are ok but nothing special.

The site is easy to get to, at the end of Dane road continue straight on along the private road through the fields. Access id fine, through a gateway on the right; the gate is usually open. There are paddocks with horses all around.

There are nice enough walks, the best in our opinion is parallel with the sea wall, along a lane filled with flowers and butterflies at this time of year.

The railway line from London to Margate runs next to the site, but we didn't find the trains a problem.

There are plenty of shops in Birchington, the nearest is on the corner just before the turn into Dane Road; there is a good Co-op and several charity shops further along.
