 What a lovely site. Helpful site managers, well cut grass and good facilities. Rabbits abound on the site and a fox was seen occasionally. Pitches vary in size but all that I saw were more than adequate for a large caravan. Tent camping is well catered for as well. Bus stop almost outside although the more energetic could walk in to Canterbury. The Anchor, up the main road, does 2 for 1 on Wednesdays and the food was excellent. We got complimentary tasters of soup as well. If I had to find a criticism of the site it would be that the showers are fixed temperature and were too hot for me. Doubtless most people would be quite happy however!

 Love this immaculately kept site! Facilities are kept spotless whatever time you use them. Well laid out site. The family washroom is fantastic when you have a little one in tow. Staff/wardens are friendly and are always on hand. If you don't want to drive into Canterbury the bus stop is literally outside the camp gates.

We have no negatives for this site at all - second visit and won't be our last.

The kids loved all the rabbits running around the site, even in the daytime.

 On arrival we found the staff fine but they were busy. We could not pick our own pitch and followed a man on a bike to where we had to go. We had booked many months in advance and had told them we had a drive away awning we need to use. However due to the size of pitch it would mean the awning would go about 24 inches on to the grass. When we said this we were told we could not do this because of the 6 mts rule but cars were allowed to park on the grass. Also we came back one day to find the hedge had been cut and the clippings left in piles (ok. But not for three days). I also did not like garden machinery being driven over my hook up lead. Will we stay here again. What do you think ????.

 As a family we have visited this campsite 4 times and love it. The play area is safe for the kids and the toilet and shower facilities are the cleanest we have experienced. The only downside being that on bank holiday weekends the campsite is so busy that you are really packed in, but would happily go back again.

Reviewer: Treble 13 reviews from this member

 Just spent half term here. I felt it was rather expensive.

We arrived Thursday and the wardens were extremely helpful in deciding with us which pitches would work for us and for friends who would arrive the next day & Sunday.

The site is made up of a number of small areas meaning that even though it's a large place it doesn't feel like it. There are hard standings, pre-marked grass pitches with EH and then grass space on which to pitch with no EHU - these areas seem pretty informal and flexible. It's nice that all types of pitch are spread around - that's far better than all the non-EHU pitches in one area and all the hard standings in another as it really does cater to mixed-unit groups.

The only thing I'd say is that the standard pitch width isn't very generous. I have a Ranger 460/4 and a standard traditional awning. That completely filled the boxed area leaving no sitting-out space apart from alongside the drawbar. We personally were fine with that because of being with friends, one of whom was in a motorhome, so their car space was usable for one of the other cars and that left us with a great communal space.

The toilet blocks appear to be pretty new inside. There are plenty of showers/loos (I had to wait for one person to finish on just one occasion during a very busy week). Both blocks have a covered dishwash area at the back and the one near reception has a laundry and also a family room.

I can't comment on children's facilities.

 Fabulous spot for visiting Canterbury. The site is quite large with a play area for children. The facilities are excellent, a new block had just been opened when we were there last.

The staff are helpful and friendly.

We have returned here several times as it is such a pleasant location for a weekend break.

Reviewer: GPDJP 13 reviews from this member

 It is difficult to assess a site on damp January days. However, the welcome was friendly, the pitches well spaced out. The toilet facilities were very good and clean.

Just a few minutes from the site is a bus stop and the bus will take you directly into the city centre. Canterbury centre is quite small but has interesting narrow streets and a good range of shops. There are plenty of places to eat and some quaint old pubs. The main attraction in the city is the cathedral and this is worth a visit. We also visited the 'Canterbury Tales' attraction - this was different and amusing. The city is full of history and an enjoyable day out even on a cold January day!

Recommend the site and Canterbury for a bit of culture!

 Just spent a weekend at this site for the second time and can say this is a most pleasant place to stay, a couple of miles from Canterbury with a bus stop a few yards from the entrance. Though it is a 'walkable ' distance into town it is rather a steep hill coming back, as for the site this really is a pleasant place to stay, very clean with a shower / toilet block that was kept spotlessly clean and cosy warm at all times, we were lucky and had a weekend with virtually no rain but it had been raining all week but with lots of hard standings this was not an issue, if you have kids there is a small play area and also a dog walk for your furry friends. Staff were very pleasant & most helpful, a tip for some where to have a pub meal is the Lady Luck at the bottom of the high st in Canterbury, please don't be put off by the young appearance of the pub because the food and staff were most pleasant, would we visit this site again ? Most definitely

 Stayed just one night on our way home so didn't look all round site but what we saw was very nice. Even at this time of year everything was tidy and grass cut. Shower block was immaculate and very modern, even fold down seats for each shower. I had the same comments re wifes membership card which is not the first time at c&cc sites. I feel the same, they only have to put my number in the computer and it shows both our memberships! We also didn't get our old age concession!

Short bus ride into Canterbury, stops right outside site. All in all a good site that I would visit again.

Reviewer: BrumBlues 2 reviews from this member

 Just spent a few days at one of the best sites we've visited.

We had superb weather, to go with a base for reaching all of East Kent (and the Channel crossing points), so this served to enhance site facilities that were everything we required. Clean and modern toilet/shower blocks; well laid out and manicured grounds; spacious pitches and good security, made our stay worthwhile.

A Fish and Chips van turned up twice a week for those who wish to use it, and the reception/shop provides basic provisions and newspapers.

Other visitors (mainly motorhomes) were friendly and quiet so the peace and tranquillity wasn't disturbed.

We'll certainly be returning the next time we visit Kent.
