 This is a huge site, no privacy between pitches, but some come with trees or hedges at the back. Two nice big toilet blocks, but rather confusing, there is only ONE washing machine and ONE dryer! The laundry is not open 24 hours either, so made sure I was there for opening so I didn't miss out. People were catching the train from town to London. We went to Canterbury Cathedral, Canterbury Tales, a Roman Museum (uncovered when Germans bombed the city) and St. Augustines Abbey ruins. Very nice, but busy town with lots to see and do. Don't even bother trying to find parking close to the main attractions. There are buses in a short walk away from the site. We walked back from town, an easy stroll one afternoon.

 We stayed here for two nights, The site is just perfect, Although it had lots of tents / campers / caravans it wasn't over crowded. The staff are extremely friendly, very professional, and so very helpful. We certainly will go again. The chippy van is just so yummy to. The site is stunning, well kept. Beautifully clean. A real credit to all the staff. This site and the staff 10 out of 10 always.

 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The facilities were modern and kept spotless as is usually the case with Camping and Caravan Club sites. There is a golf club opposite the main entrance and a bus stop nearby. The buses run very frequently into Canterbury which is a beautiful city dominated by the wonderful cathedral.

 We visited this site for the first time for a couple of nights for New Years Eve. We requested a pitch away from others as we have a teething baby and did not wish to disturb others and despite being full they had reserved us a perfect pitch! We had a very friendly welcome and were shown to our pitch and directed to the facilities.

I was particularly impressed the next day when the wardens enquired how our dog was feeling (we were late arriving due to an unexpected visit to the vets after she decided to sample some After Eight mints!). They also wanted to know if we would like to use the Family Room and could not have been friendlier or more helpful.

The site is immaculate and well laid out and there is plenty of space, despite it being full. We did not use the facilities but they appeared to be nice from the outside. Despite is close proximity to Canterbury and being next to the hospital, it has a very rural feel, especially over the back which borders fields.

The walk to Canterbury took about 20 minutes and was quite pleasant. The hill looks daunting coming back but really isn't that bad and I managed it pushing a fully laden pushchair without much effort so don't be deterred! There is however a bus stop right outside the site and the busses apparently run every 20 minutes (although we didnlt actually see one!)

A perfect site for exploring the beautiful city of Canterbury and the surrounding area and we will be returning!

 Stopped here on the way back from camping in France, arriving late afternoon. Satnav tried to take us down some very dubious lanes to start with (was fine with just the car but a caravan would struggle). Turned and went further down the A road and eventually got new directions which were much more accessible.

Mix up with booking not being fully processed but were really helpful and managed to find space for us. Shown personally to our pitch and given a run down of everything along with written notes and local takeaway menus. Nice little park close to our pitch for our 9yr old to play at.

Toilets/shower block immaculate and modern. Dish washing area adequate too. Cut through the camping area to shower blocks so a bit wet underfoot but otherwise fine. Quiet site despite the amount of caravans etc in situ.

Packed up and left early the next morning. Plenty of bins at entrance to dispose of waste.

Would definitely use again.

 Loved this site and so returned this year! Can get to the beach in about a half an hour and walk to Canterbury if you are prepared for a steep walk back! (gets easier each time and saves on bus fares and hassle of parking). Margate great for fish and chips! Travelled to lots of places and even France for a day! Busy site with lots going on. Reception open every time I passed by and wardens clearly seen throughout the day. Friendly and helpful when I required some help. Facilities immaculate. No complaints at all! Will return again!

Reviewer: David Klyne 257 reviews from this member

 To find Site:- Leave A2 and follow signs towards Canterbury on the A 2050. On ring road follow signs for Sandwich, head out of Canterbury on A257. In about a mile pass NHS facility of right and opposite Canterbury Golf Club turn right into Bekesbourne Lane (signed) and turn right into site in about hundred metres. The final approach from the main road to the campsite is narrow so care is required.

This campsite is situated about two miles from the centre of Canterbury. It is handy for an overnight stay to and from the ferries at Dover or for a longer stay to visit this part of Kent. You get a friendly welcome from the site staff. There are 200 pitches on a mix of grass and hardstanding. All pitches are allocated on arrival although you are asked for your preferences which will be met if possible. The hardstanding pitches are wide enough for caravan/motorhome and awning but not a car. This campsite is open all year and accepts non-members. Electric points are available to all serviced pitches (Club jargon for a pitch with electrics, but not water and drainage. ) although not every pitch will have access to electricity. They are rated at 16 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. There are two toilets blocks of a good standard. The main block also contains a laundry, undercover dish wash area and chemical disposal point. The motorhome service point is nearer the second block. Water points are dotted around the site. For children there is an adventure style play area. Reception, which has extended hours during busy periods, also sells a few essentials and newspapers can be ordered. Next door is a small information room. There is site wide WiFi and time can be purchased online or at reception. A fish and chip vans calls a couple of times a week, good quality and reasonable prices.

Other than the overnight campers this campsite is very convenient for visits to Canterbury. For those without transport or who would prefer to use public transport there is a (weekdays and Saturdays) service every 20 minutes from almost outside the campsite. For those wanting to travel further afield there are good connections from Canterbury to all nearby towns. The seaside town of Whitstable, famous for its oysters, is not far away and is well worth a visit particularly the coastal walk. There are many restaurants in the City of Canterbury only a short bus or taxi ride away from the site. The nearest supermarket is Waitrose although most of the other major groups are also available within a short drive away.

 We stopped off for two nights on our way home to the Midlands after touring in Europe so it is ideally situated being half an hour away from Dover. When checking in I spotted a notice about Camping Key Europe card and asked if ours would be of benefit. You bet it was! It enabled us to have CCC member rate giving us a saving of about 5 per night. Afterwards, one of the wardens escorted us to our pitch on his bike and explained where the services were - electric bollard, nearest fresh water point, toilet block -as well as suggestions of things to see and do. Excellent service - liked that personal touch. The site is very spacious and facilities of a high standard, so given its proximity to the Channel crossings, I expect we shall revisit next year.

Reviewer: Mjlincs 26 reviews from this member

 We got a really helpful and friendly welcome to the site and a choice of pitches which reflected our need for the dog walk. My wife says that the showers were plentiful, large, very clean and well equipped with hooks etc. She was very impressed and thought they were the best she has used. The location is perfect for touring North Kent and very near Canterbury with a bus stop very close to the site, supermarkets and shopping are just a short drive away. We enjoyed several of the local towns and resorts in this very picturesque part of England, Whitstable is turning into a charming little place with seafood and a weekend market on the dockside and some lovely little shops to explore. We were warned against going to Margate but that was from someone who had not visited for a few years and we found the area around the harbour, old town and Turner Gallery to be well worth a visit. We thought Sandwich was a jewel and spent quite some time there wandering admiring the old buildings and choosing somewhere for lunch. If you need anything for your tent or caravan while you are there I can highly recommend W. M. Camping at Herne Common just outside Herne Bay, I urgently needed help after my awning gave way in heavy rain and I could not have received better service anywhere.

 Lovely, well kept site within walking distance to the town and driving distance to many attractions. We visited Dover Castle, Whitstable and Herne Bay, Chatham Docks and Sissighurst.

The wardens were incredibly friendly and helpful and gave us a choice of 3 different pitches to choose from. We chose the 'woodland' area and loved it as it's not big enough for large tents due to the trees so we felt like we had loads of space to ourselves. Our main visitors were the rabbits.

Facilities were immaculate and there is a small children's play area plus a dog walk. We don't have a dog but it was a nice enough stroll to tire the kids out enough before bedtime!

Brilliant tourist base, spotless facilities and lovely staff; what more could you want?
