Hatcher's Farm was a welcome final stay on the St Augustine Camino pilgrimage trail, from Rochester Cathedral to the new shrine of St Augustine in Ramsgate.

As a solo backpacker, the campsite was ideally suited for my needs and budget.

The pitch amongst the plum trees was perfect for me, scenic, quiet and private, but reassuringly close to the farm amenities. The communal facilities were well maintained and the working farm atmosphere is charming. The shop in the village was only a short walk away, allowing me to resupply for my final days walk.

The owner John, and his wife, truly went above and beyond to make me feel a welcomed guest, and I unreservedly recommend Hatchers Farm to all fellow passing pilgrims.

If you want to go camping in Kent, Hatchers Farm has to be on your shortlist.

We arrived at the site, and John met us. He told us we were the only ones on site, and we could have whatever pitch we liked.

Now, when I say 'pitch', it's not a small rectangle in a field. This is a field with rows of cherry trees. The pitches run the full width of the field, in between the rows. I'm sure when they're busy, this might change, but this is what we had the use of.

The bathrooms are immaculate, almost everything you don't know you've forgotten is available (washing liquid and such), and they have no issue with you charging your phone or powerbank. There are also fridges for you to put your milk and such in, so they don't go off.

The Half Moon and Seven Stars is a 60-second walk away, and does excellent food. There is a family butcher another minute away, and a convenience store another two minutes after that.

All in all, it's a lovely site, with no restrictions placed upon us. We will definitely be going back, as it was so in-the-middle-of-nowhere, but handy for most of Kent.

Thanks for a great weekend!

We spent a wonderful weekend camping at Hatchers farm as a group of 5 families. We stayed in a lovely spot at the end of the cherry orchard and felt like we had our own private space. It was the first weekend of the school holidays, so peak time, however the layout of the campsite meant it did not feel busy. There was sometimes a queue for the toilets and showers (hence the 9/10 score on facilities) however bearing in mind the peak time, this would not not put us off returning. The facilities were always spotless. Plenty of space in the fridge freezers and also good washing up sinks. There was always hot water. The free veg and honesty box for eggs etc was a lovely touch - delicious corn on the cob to cook on our fire. Fire pits are scattered around to use for free and there are also some BBQ grills for the fire to borrow for free too. Dogs are welcome. Some lovely walks from the campsite, step outside the site and you are seconds walk from a lovely pub with good food and a beer garden, corner shop, butchers and garden centre! A perfect small, friendly, peaceful campsite, we'll definitely return!

We visited Hatchers Farm as a group of three families and had a wonderful weekend. The site is a working farm with a central access track flanked by a plum orchard and cherry orchard. The pitches are strips of short, soft grass between the fruit trees. We were greeted by John who showed us round and we ended up pitching at the far end of the cherry orchard which was perfect for a larger group. Although we had had trouble finding a site for the weekend due to relatively short notice, Hatchers Farm was quiet with only 3 or 4 other tents some distance away. The children had loads of space to roam free, climb trees and the grass strips are perfect for games of football. The orchard setting was just idyllic, surrounded by talll hedges which give it a real quiet and secluded character.

There is a small toilet and shower block which was beautifully clean, with hot showers, hand wash and even soft loo roll! There are two fridges and free veg to help yourself to.

John the owner was so laid back and friendly, letting us pick cherries from the trees, introducing the chickens and geese to the children and generally lending a chilled out vibe to the place.

The site is well placed for the Kent coast and we had a great day out in Margate. There seemed to be loads of nice looking pubs in the area and a farm butchers right next to the site which we didn't get the chance to use.

Can't recommend this site highly enough and will definitely be back.

Stayed at Hatchers Farm for 2 nights in April 2017 in our campervan.

Idyllic site, very relaxed setting with long and level pitches (around 10 in total) each located between rows of cherry trees. We 'hired' a fire basket and a big basket logs for open fires both nights - bliss!

Toilets and showers are in a converted ban and are kept clean.

A lovely vibe about this place, owners on-site and very friendly.

Perfect for striking distance into Canterbury, Broadstairs and the Kent coast.

We will definitely return and would recommend.

Lovely site, really pleasant. Some really nice touches from the owners, such as the constant radio playing in the shower/toilet area, quite comforting. Bits of fruit and veg left out for 'sharing', corn husks runner beans, marrows, plums.

Unfortunately I missed the cherries, I will plan my trip better next year!

John and Tanya cannot do enough for you, you can tell that they are taking this seriously, not always the case with farm sites I find.

Great butchers in the village, I kept buying their 'three amigos' burger, forgot to ask why three Amigos. Nice sausages too. Village shop is adequate and fairly priced.

All in all a 10 from me.
