 Fantastic woodland site with an individual pitch with firepit, picnic bench and solitude/quietness.

Beautifully kept woods that allowed the grandchildren to run around safely and explore like us old 'uns did in days gone by !

Added bonus, no phone signal so no technology !

Great showers with Eco shower gel provided, clean toilets abundant. Recommend the archery - informative, patient ( ! ) instructor.

Reviewer: Hoskij 1 review from this member

 We stayed here last weekend. It was beautiful. What we liked:

Campsite owners very relaxed

Pitches are in the forest in their own carrals

In May there are so many scented bluebells

No road noise

Campfires and they sell their own wood at a very reasonable price. Our pitch had an inbuilt fire pit

Pitches/carrals not close together

Stunning walks along the north Kent downs

1 hours walk with children to the lovely village of Birling with a great pub selling lovely food and Sunday dinner

So close to London but your so far away from it all.

Good mobile reception so kids can get an internet connection on the iPhone

Site office has some good supplies if you need anything

So we visited here the second time. Definitely going back. They have done so much to improve the campsite, itís such a nice place to easily get away from London and chill out. We love it there

 Lovely and quiet, sitting round an open fire.

Nice hot shower considering its "off grid" It really is off grid, no phone signal either - lovely!

If you want a quiet night in the woods this is for you!

Reviewer: Mallaghmoo 1 review from this member

 This was our first ever camping trip - a taster and boy were we pleasantly surprised!

This site is awesome! Truly back to nature, well catered and exceptionally well run.

It is clean, quiet and the owners are lovely and friendly and very thoughtful about the whole experience.

The pitches are well spaced out amongst beautiful woodland and we have already booked 3 more stays here for 2021! Cannot wait - donít miss out!

 Well we have looked at this site since we started camping in 2016 but always said No we canít do wild camping

We love it

We have just got a bongo so first time using it with a awning so took is a while to sort out how to fit it in the pitch

The kids love it and we enjoyed it

Greet site for social distancing due to covid lots of washing hand stations around the campsite

Staff very friendly and helpful

We will be back

 Excellent side beautiful woodland with refreshing fresh air. Large pitch with fire pit and lovely clean warm showers. Lots of woodland to explore.

Site covers 30 acres of a 250 acre site. Good service and friendly staff. Very eco minded with sawdust loos and preservation areas.

Surrounding area is classic English countryside with pretty hamlets and villages.

 What a great time in Badgels Wood, Meopham, Kent. Steeped in military history. Highly recommended for the WW1/2 training trenches, the WW2 barracks (ruins), and spitfire crash site (couldn't find it).

The facilities are great, and clean, the campsites offer great privacy and the staff are friendly.

 Follow the winding road into the woods,

Just bring your car laden with camping goods,

Turn left into the site and check in with lovely Karina,

A well stocked shop from logs to Ribena!

Next to our pitch for adventures in the wild,

This place is paradise for all ages, from adult to child.

Set up your tent and prepare your camp fire,

Washing machine drums and grills are available for hire.

The facilities are just right for authentic camping,

With composting loos this is definitely not glamping!

But the lure of nature and the beauty of the fauna.

Beats living it up with a TV and sauna!?

We go every year and would go more if we could.

To that magical campsite in old Badgells Wood.

 Karina and Mike we have had the most amazing weekend with our friends and children camping here this Easter. Thank you so much for not only the most amazing camping experience (so nice to not have lights at all!) but also putting on a most generous Easter egg hunt. We will definitely be back! Wine and toasting marshmallows by the campfire on an evening as well as showering with birdsong on a morning. Amazing! Thanks for taking the time out of your day to chat to us and making us feel most welcome.

Anyone looking for proper camping (compost loos and shed showers) and a safe place for children to explore; this campsite is a must. Highly recommend.
