 This site is up to the usual high standards of the C&CC. I have only one complaint, it is that there is only one rubbish point. It is situated by the main entrance and it involves quite a walk if you are on one of the remoter pitches. For motorhomers or others without transport Canterbury is about a 40 minute walk away. There is a frequent bus service though, the bus stop is only a minute from the site entrance.

 My first visit in 3 years to this site, although I first visited 25 years ago. I was on my motorbike with a small tent, which I was able to park on my pitch, with the aid of a stand-puck.

The shower blocks are immaculate, along with all other facilities. I found the welcome pack very useful and took advantage of 10% off food at The Fordwich Arms upon producing my Site receipt.

In previous reviews it has been mentioned that there is only one point for rubbish/litter to be left. This is not a bad thing, as it is away from pitches at the site exit. As everybody (hopefully) will leave the site at least once a day, it shouldn't be too much trouble to deposit any waste on the way out. It can also be annoying if you have a rubbish point right by your pitch!

I deliberately chose to stay outside school holiday times and mid-week because I have had many a stay on a site blighted by uncontrolled children.

There were children from Germany, France and Holland (their holidays begin, I think at the beginning of July) These were all well behaved and polite along with their parents. Perhaps it is a British trait to allow your kids to run riot on sites!

Anyway, a very pleasant stay on a top-class site, which has evolved and improved over the years!

 A gem of a site really enjoyed our stay here if I am really, really, really picky a slight misunderstanding on arrival. I had not taken my wife's C & C membership card and it was made clear to me in a very abrupt manner this was not allowed. My point was it does not cost me any more for my wife to be a member once I had become a member so why would she not have one. This explanation was not enough but eventually after feeling like a scolded school child all was ok.

There was no need for the reception to be like that in my opinion having driven 300 mile to get there being spoken to in a off hand manner. After that 100% improvement the sight lovely and clean as was the toilets and showers. No noise at all on our stay over the late Bank Hol Monday.

Just the missus and myself plus two small dogs great dog walk. And just a 20/25 min walk into Canterbury itself. Albeit steep walk back but if you are used to a bit of walking no problem at all. I would return here do not let the reception incident put you off this was just a one off maybe she had a bad day. Ranger6

 Well done C&C Club. Facilities greatly improved and a pleasure to use. Lots of hard standings. Always a very warm welcome. Have been using this site for about 5years and it just gets better and better. Floral displays are always attractive and colourful. The site is well managed and the level of maintenance is very good. We would recommend it to any body. The site is ideally situated for visiting the surrounding area. As motor homers we like the fact that the bus stops outside the entrance.

Reviewer: Alan Chilestone 36 reviews from this member

 Spent an enjoyable (If sometimes cold) Easter Weekend at this site. Since we last visited in 2003 hard standings have been added, all with EHU. More recently the main toilet block has been refurbished. And what a fantastic job has been done. They were warm, showers were hot straight away, and they were kept very clean. The day we left the second block was closed so similar work could start.

On our last stay all the camping fields had names, such as Poplar Tree and Park Lane, and I thought it a shame that these had all been painted out.

 This is our third visit to this site and we have not been disappointed.

Despite the weather the ground had drained well and was not too muddy. The new shower block by reception was great, really warm, clean and the water in the shower was really hot. The shop is small but does have some basics but there is a small Londis store a short walk away.

Access to Canterbury is a shortish walk, about a mile, or there is a bus stop outside the site. Canterbury is a great city to visit, with plenty to see and do. Plenty of olde pubs and plenty of places to eat.

Had a great weekend and will be returning.

 We visited the site first weekend in September, was gorgeous weekend during day, just wish I'd taken more rugs, jumpers etc for the nights. One of my daughters and I were freezing cold all might, whilst my husband & youngest daughter were fine.

Anyway, we are still learning, it's only our 2nd camping trip, and we've stayed close to home. The site wasn't chosen by us, but by friends, so I was a bit worried about the site as all the reviews mentioned the disgusting toilets! However we found both toilet /shower blocks to be absolutely fine.

The site itself was fine, my only negatives were that the only bins were a very long walk from our tent (surely they could put some others around? The only bins were at the park entrance!).

The bays could do with being marked and numbered, this way it would clearly mark boundaries. It seemed chaotic how all the tents and vans were organised.

Our friends booked us all together; 1 caravan and 4 tents, asking for us all to be together, however it didn't work out that way, I think they just agreed on the phone to get the booking.

Oh and the water pressure is very low there for showering/washing up. I guess the optimum time to shower was mid afternoon as the building has solar panels to heat the water.

Canterbury very close so a great location. Canterbury is a wonderful city to visit. My girls loved the play park on site, and the dens that others had created. Quiet location too.

 Have used this campsite for four years. Very friendly people who are willing to help with any enquiries.

Great walks for dogs just beside the camp. Doggie bins. Easy to walk into town.

Adequate and safe children's play area.

Basic but very clean washing facilities with plenty of hot water. Not a lot of space in the shower units but easy to sort out.

Pretty site, plenty of space and nice and quiet.

 We stayed here for 2 nights over the August bank holiday and loved it. We will definitely visit again next year.

Lovely quiet country location with good pitches & 2 facility blocks 1 old & 1 new.

The level of cleanliness was to a good standard considering row buy the site was.

The site is approximately 2 miles walk to the city centre & the nearest shop was a brisk 10 minutes walk to the local 'Londis'

Our 3 children were safe to play on & around the pitches & wanted to stay longer.

A lovely site great for chillaxing or visiting Canterbury.

Reviewer: Neil Mckay 2 reviews from this member

 We had stayed here back in the middle of January this year and found the site to be very good. When we read the reviews for this year we very nearly gave the site a miss because some of the reviews were quite bad.

However, based on our own experience earlier we chose to stay again. After an initial issue where the site didn't return our calls to make a booking, we are pleased to say that the service, hospitality and the site proved to be a delightful experience.

I agree the toilet and shower facilities, especially in the lower block, need up dating. The reason they would appear reluctant to renovate them is because they hadn't secured the lease. Now that has been done they are in the process of revamping many areas of the facilities.

Everything was always clean and the only cleanliness issues I saw in our 5 day stay was down to site users themselves leaving washing up areas or toilets and showers in a dirty state themselves.

In the whole of our stay all staff were helpful and worked hard to keep the site in good order, the pitches were well maintained, the grass cut and all in all a cheerful place to have a break.

It is a great site as well due to its location for interesting places to see and just a short trip to the ferries.
