My son has stayed here a couple of times and said it's really nice.

So we came down for the weekend with our unit as well and yes it is a very well kept site very clean and tidy toilets are spotless the owners work very hard to make your stay relaxing and friendly.

The shop is very well stocked and keenly priced no need to go shopping for anything. They have all the info for eating out and visting local places.

And their local butcher does some wicked burgars, chicken lamb and do try the sausages note always fresh delivered you can order the papers as well for next day.

If your leaving Mon or Tues you can buy a sausage & bacon Freshly cooked bap for a £1 saves all the cooking just another lovely touch to a lovely site

We have just spent 3 nights at Gate House Wood and can confidently say we will be returning to this campsite. We received a very warm welcome from Dave and Karen on arrival and they were on hand throughout our stay if needed.

On arrival Dave guided us to our pitch and explained the site rules and facilities.

The site is well taken care of and the kitchen and toilet / shower blocks were always clean with plenty of hot water.

Our daughter (9) made new friends quickly and the play area was ideally located allowing parents to watch from afar whilst given her a little independence. In an ideal world a few more toddler friendly play equipment would have been great for our 19 month old but having said that it certainly didnít spoil our stay.

On our departure day Dave organised a leavers breakfast. This consisted of large Sausage or bacon baps for a £1. The smell of this cooking first thing in the morning was heaven especially as it was wet and a bit cold. This was great value for money considering the quality products used. This was a real treat at the end of a lovely break.

The site has a well stocked shop but major towns are close by if you want to venture out.

Keep up the good work and we hope to be back very soon.

We have just returned from two nights at this site. The owners were exceptionally helpful and pleasant, nothing was too much trouble.

The site itself was perfect for us. Facilities were clean, site was quiet at night, shop particularly good, eating places within walking distance if needed.

The setting is rural but with access to main routes and being an old quarry there was no need for hard standing even though we had a motorcaravan.

Although we no longer holiday with children the site was perfect for families with five to ten year olds who just want to play together safely with new found friends.

A visit to Ightham Mote rounded off the weekend.

That will teach us for not following the instructions for the campsite on the website. The prince of darkness knew it was arrivals from 1400 only and arrived at 1330 and had to wait. Read the instructions ! !

What do we think then, some thoughts to share with you all.

Watch the sat nav directions to here. Make sure you use the main road and not the side road off the main drag from the motorway down to the campsite

Some site bits then, water could have been a bit warmer it was ok but a couple of degrees warmer would have been nice, water pressure is excellent though so get ready for a good dosing !

Some of the site rules were not enforced as others so watch out for the site football matches

We did find this a good site although, the pitches were big and well sized, the shop looks well stocked with bits, the site owners seemed pleasant enough and its nicely located in a good area to explore around. There is some noise from the motorway but its not that bad

'Woody' is an interesting item for the site. He is a fox that appears and has been known to remove articles from pitches for his personal collection such as shoes / flip flops etc. There are warnings up asking not to feed him or thrown food out and to advise the site if he is seen.

We didn't see hear but we heard him ! he is quite noisy

There is a well thought out play area for the kids with the soft landing material and what appeared to be soft bark type which helps avoid those grazed knees and subsequent tears

There is an interesting walk around the top of the quarry which overlooks the campsite

The curry delivered to the site was really nice as well and within walking distance is a pub and chinese as well

This is a good value for money site that is in an old quarry, the owners have done some good work on it and its on the way up. One or two little bits and it has the potential to be an excellent campsite.

The big question then is would we go back, we think so

We made our first trip in our new caravan over the bank holiday weekend and chose the site at Gate House Wood as it had pretty good write ups. Access to the site was easy to negotiate and we were happy with the initial 'look' of the site - tidy and well kept.

After booking in, the owner, Dave, guided us to our pitch. He then helped me get the new van into our pitch by giving some directions (welcome for a new caravan owner).

The pitch itself was more than ample for us and was clearly marked out. The site itself is set in a deep bowl, well sheltered from the wind.

The play area in the centre of the camping area enabled us to keep an eye on our 6 yr old without 'cramping her style' with her new friends.

Other points worth noting were that the toilet/shower block was one of the cleanest we have experienced in the UK and the other facilities such as the EHU, waste disposal and shop all met our needs.

As I mentioned before, this was the first time we had used our new van and was an opportunity to test all the new gadgets, etc. Dave was really helpful with a couple of teething problems on the van, even to the point of finding me a couple of waste pipes from his garage so that I could test and use the wastemaster.

All in all a good weekend (even though the weather was pants) and we even managed to fit in a Chinese lunch buffet at Mings, which was a 10 min walk from the campsite.

Keep up the good work

I decided only last minute to have a couple of nights away with just myself and my daughter over the bank holiday weekend. Firstly to get out of London for a couple of days into the fresh country air but also to give my wife a bit of time to herself. Being the easter bank holiday weekend I did not expect many sites to have vacant pitches.

After speaking to a very nice and helpful lady over the phone she assured me they would have pitch ready for me within the hour. Just a short drive from where I live I arrived and was very happy with what I saw.

Not the biggest of sites but perfectly situated in the middle of what I think was a disused quarry, surrounded by trees and shrub land it is ideal.

Very clean and tidy reception and equally clean and tidy shower blocks all within easy walking distance from your unit.

The lady at reception who I believe to be the owner was very polite and helpful and even assisted me back my caravan into the appropriate space.

After little more then 20 minutes my young daughter of only 4 had made friends with the other children on site and she was gone for most the day. Being surrounded by steep hillsides I felt very happy to let my daughter run off and play as I felt the site was very secure.

I would definitely stay at this site again and would say it ideal more for families and less for the older folk who want quiet child free zones.

This was a 'first of the year to check out our new bits we've bought trip'

We decided to use Gate House Wood Touring Park as the reviews have praised it and it's only 35 Mins from home.

Also it looked just the type of site we like - basically in a Forest!

We were met by one of the owners and shown to our pitch. He was very charming and informed us of the do's and don'ts.

The electric Hook up was a fair way from the tent and we did struggle with it reaching. Make sure the hookup is within reasonable reach or you'll be on Batteries.

There is a well stocked shop and the Toilets/Shower Block were absolutely immaculate. Washing up facilities are first class and it has washer, driers Ironing board and iron etc.

Make sure you are off site by 1pm as the owners are at lunch from 1-2 and you will have to wait for your £10 deposit return on the the barrier Key.

A very good site.

Just returned from this site having spent 2 nights there with our RV style motor-home and must say we were very impressed.

The owners could not have been more helpful in siting our large camper (9. 5m) on a very firm pitch overlooking the site. Easy access from the M20/M26 and a very convenient stopover for Dover/Folkestone.

The facilities were both modern and very clean; there is also access to clothes washing facilities should you require them. 2 pubs/restaurants within easy walking distance.

Motor-home dump station is a welcome addition and even has the proper connection for the RV sewer hose! On site shop selling all essentials and more (Cumberland sausages are great!)

Childrens play area ideally located in the centre of the park. Would happily recommend this site and hope to visit again.

What a lovely site! We have stayed at this site several times now and we all love it. My husband and I and our two daughters aged 2 and 6 years. The owners of the site, Karen and Dave are really helpful and friendly. The shop is well equiped, you can even order fresh crossants for your breakfast! The shower block is extremely clean and very well maintained. The play area is fantastic, ours kids love it and it is checked daily for safety. It is a very friendly site. We recommend it to anyone who wants a lovely holiday with or without children. There are various takeaways in the local area and a co-op a few miles away which stocks everything you could need for your weekly shop. Thank you Karen and Dave. See you again soon.

We stayed at Gate House Wood with our Folding Camper for one night on our way home from France. Nice welcome from Dave. Good size pitches, well marked so you know your boundaries. The toilets, showers and wash up facilities lovely and clean. The facilities were heated and did not need a key or code. Key for barrier good for security. My wife bought some basics from the site shop which saved looking outside the campsite. The playground is more for larger children not much for my grandchildren aged two and four. We picked this site as it is close to the motorway and easy to find. Ideal stop off for people travelling from Northumberland or Scotland to the Channel Ferries.
