 Chose this site as a base to tour south Kent coast area.

Great “behind a pub” campsite.

Very friendly and helpful landlord

Grass pitch was nice and level. Site well kept, clean and tidy.

Unfortunately showers closed due to Covid so cannot comment on these.

Welcoming atmosphere in the pub, with good selection of beers on tap. Food menu limited (again due to Covid) but still reasonable range of dishes and the ones we chose were excellent.

We'll stay here again when back in this area.

 It was perfect great location and great people. Staff were very helpful.

So handy having a pub on site very nice.

Campers get priority when booking a table which is very handy

 The Drum was recommended to us, and it didn’t disappoint.

A warm welcome- a great meal - easy location if you are waiting to travel the tunnel-

Definitely recommend it.

 A good site for a night stop. Less than 10 minutes from the channel tunnel. Friendly and helpful staff.

On our visit the campsite facilities were not open due to covid but the pub facilities were available.

Smaller menu offered than usual but meal was good.

All health and hygiene was in place.

 Pleasant site in pub garden. Landlord & landlady most helpful.

Excellent evening meal. A bit pricy, but only 10 mins from Channel Tunnel.

Good pitches, clearly marked.

Reviewer: Talbot 1 review from this member

 Liked pub, excellent ambience, choice of drinks and friendly staff. Meals very good. Dog friendly. Very close to Channel tunnel and M20.

Overnight facilities clean and working well. (wc x2, showers, chem. Disposal, water & hook up. )

Only problem for our 8M Autotrail vehicle was a scrunch underneath on way in and on way out, contacting hump at entry gate. If this could be flattened out a bit this would be a very good stop over for us especially as Citie de Europe has closed to overnight stays. Higher or shorter outfits probably ok now.

 Excellent stop for Tunnel, only 10 minutes travel.

Would certainly use it again.

Warm welcome from staff.

Pub looked to be of a good quality although we did not use it.

 We booked as it was close to channel tunnel for departure on a Monday morning, arrived too late.

For dinner as they stop serving at 7pm.

Very basic facilities but served its purpose.

Reviewer: Gailbonney 30 reviews from this member

 Booked here as overnighter for tunnel early am crossing. Arrived after very long journey. First thing you notice is the hill/ramp to get into the car park. It was quite gritty and we struggled to get up it! You could see where other vehicles had grounded/caught the surface - that set me worrying about getting off in the morning.

The ?owner was in the field as lots of us were arriving at same time, directed us to our pitch, initially grass and quite sloping, but we managed to sort it out. Didn't book a table for dinner as didn't know time of arrival, so couldn't have a meal as stopped serving food at 8. 30pm! I think that was a missed opportunity. OH and son went out for diesel and fast food!

Toilet block was, I think, 2 toilets and one shower, fortunately we didn't have a shower before leaving due to early get away. It was a little tired and dirty but that's down to users as much as anyone else.

Cheaper than the one we used last year, but not as nice! As OH said, its just one night and better than a service station!
