Reviewer: Witherington 1 review from this member

 I have been using Tanners Farm Caravan Park regularly for the past 15 years. During that time, I have found the facilities, staffing and pitches to be very good and fit for purpose. However I have noticed a number of issues that have now affected this opinion

This is the only campsite that I have used that insists the full cost of the stay is requested at the point of booking. Even when the booking is made 6 months in advance. Most sites I have stayed on ask for a booking deposit and the final payment 4 weeks or 7 days before arrival.

The full payment is requested and made by debit or credit card. If after the payment is made and you would like to increase the number of days stay, the payment is made on the same details used on the original booking and without any issue.

However This campsite now refuses to make a refund if the booking is changed and your stay becomes one day less. This refusal for a refund is made even if the changes are made 4 months before the arrival on site. Any refund is given as a credit note that must be used on the next stay at the campsite. ( I did ask if you did not want to make a further booking if you could get a refund but staff on duty in the shop did not know)

Most of the hard standing pitches have access to electric and a sole use of a water tap for that pitch. On the grass pitches there is no sole access to a water supply and water is gained by using one of the communal water taps. Some of these taps are over 150 metres from the caravan pitch and I was surprised to find out that the pitch fee for Hard Standing and Grass Pitches are the same daily cost.

Most sites I have stayed on have a 2 or even 3 level costing

Basic : electric supply and communal use of other facilities

Super : electric, sole use of water and sometimes drainage

Superior : electric, water, drainage, satellite or TV aerial hookup.

In addition to the above during busy periods (easter bank holiday 2022), when most pitches have been booked. On all 4 days the hot water used for the wash and shower facilities, washing up and hand washing after use of toilets run out by 18. 00pm. Therefore despite the camp site knowing how many pitches are on site and how many people are using the site ( they know this as part of the booking process asks the number of people staying) there is no way of increasing the hot water supply during busy periods. I am aware that you could use the facilities in the caravan or tent you are staying in, but these are the facilities you are paying for.

I am hoping that this feedback gets a response and a chance for the management to examine the site, and facilities offered as it would be a pity to see such a good site deteriorate

 The site is well signposted.

The pitches are very well spaced and maintained.

The site shop is well stocked with essentials.

Information of things to do and places to eat in and around the area is readily available.

Facilities are very clean and regularly sanitised.

I would highly recommend

 Lovely site plenty of space and pitches good size.

We were in a tent and require electric hook up which we were provided due to having booked early however disappointed that was told that the pitches for tents may no longer be able to have the option for electric hook up. Hope this is not the case.

 A pleasant, nicely laid out site with both hardstanding and grass areas with electric (which we prefer).

Lots of space on the grass areas and so whilst it was busy we did not feel overcrowded.

Unfortunately can not comment on the facilities as these were closed due to COVID restrictions.

 1st thing 1st, this site is not cheap, any site charging over 30 a night better have everything I need and plenty of space. So, yes the plots are a good size with 16amp hook up and water. Nice level pitches, ours had dappled shade from some youngish trees beside us. Plenty of space even though every pitch was taken.

Toilet & shower block were good with hot showers and not on timer. Small shop quite well stocked. Freezer for ice blocks etc.

Its a family site which we tend to avoid, but as there was so much space we had no problem with children annoying us near our tent. Its been well thought out and not crowded even when full and that's probably why they can charge what they do.

We will go back as it is a lovely site and some nice walks too.

Plenty of places to visit. NT members has Scotney castle & Sissinghurst gardens nearby. If you have kids, take them to Bewl water its a great place for them, loads to do there 5 all day parking. Its just like being at the seaside but safer.

 A fairly large site which I understand has undergone a change of ownership in recent times. Despite its size, it doesn't feel crowded and at the time we were there it was peaceful even though every pitch was taken.

Pitches are very spacious and I believe every pitch has its own water tap.

The tent field isn't very large compared to the space given to other units. Trailer tents have to pitch with the caravans.

There are some ugly looking (in my opinion) lodges which spoil the look of one area of the park. Apart from that, it is well maintained and attractive and there is plenty of space for children to play ball games.

Most pitches are on the level.

There are two toilet blocks and only two people allowed in at any one time, although there was never any queues and hand sanitiser outside these and the dishwashing facilities. I believe most people were using their own showers /toilets in their units.

Nearby Goudhurst is attractive to look at but there is not much there in the way of restaurants or shops. There is much more in the village of Marden.

Your pitch number together with a park map and the security code for the barrier is sent to you a couple of days before you arrive.

 After this being our favourite site a few years ago but the prices went up so didn't return until now.

Booked what we thought was a hardstanding pitch, arrived to not very welcoming staff all said hello but that was it I told them my name, they printed the map circled my number and handed me the map.

It took me a while to get my bearings of the map thinking we were on hard standing. They just looked at me no conversation. Very rude. Found grass pitch and pitched up.

Lovely site toilets not particularly clean to what we expected from previous visits but ok.

 What a wonderful site, so spacious and beautiful, great facilities, immaculately clean and friendly. Suitable for all ages.

Nothing to dislike, it was a lovely stay. So peaceful, the children loved it and made friends easily.

Will be returning

Reviewer: Kateandjames 52 reviews from this member

 This is a quiet site with spacious pitches, though the tent field felt a bit cramped compared to the van field and hardstanding areas, and was therefore noisier.

There are two toilet blocks, but once cleaned were obviously not rechecked and by evening and into the following morning were mucky with water and toilet paper on the floor and dirty basins.

There is a small shop selling camp basics.

The shop / check-in staff were abrupt and not at all friendly.

Originally due to arrive in a campervan I had to switch to a tent at the last minute (breakdown). I was told it was against the rules to pitch a tent on hardstanding. I realised later that I should have said nothing as there were several tents pitched alongside vans & cars with drive away awnings. There was a lot of tutting as they tried to find me a tent pitch, when actually there were 3 available and on walking around it became apparent that some tents were in the grass van field.

If you are taking a campervan or motorhome you are not allowed to pitch on grass, hardstanding only, consequently our party of 4 units was spread out around the site.

There is dogwash on site but this was a hose pipe and spray, and was broken!

There is some lovely walking straight from the site and leaflets are available in the on-site shop, but beware of walk no 2. Where it says'goats' substitute this for pack of very aggressive dogs. The kids were absolutely petrified so suggest you may want to find a way around this part.

Despite this, now I know 'the rules' I would stay again as its convenient for visiting friends & relatives in the area.

 Top marks for a top site. We were there midweek and it was quite quiet.

Good facilities: very clean and well-maintained showers and toilets; good wash-up area; very tidy rubbish disposal.

Staff were particularly kind and helpful.

In an outstanding location, close to some of the most outstanding highlights of Kent.
