 Lovely site. Friendly staff, well kept facilities and spacious pitches. Quiet at night. You are allowed BBQs and raised camp fires.

Nice local walks and we took our bikes so we cycle 20 minutes to Faversham train station. From there we took short train journeys to Whistable and Canterbury.

Only minus is you can hear the motorway in the background which you can get used to and no local shop so bring all you might need with you.

We will return. Thank you

 Fantastic little site. Lovely and peaceful despite being a BH and full of family groups, who were making the most of their time together.

Clean toilets / showers. Easy going site manager. Allows fire pits.

Great village pub only 3 mins walk away.

We will definitely return.

 Extremely welcoming and friendly. Very relaxed as not busy, Site very clean and well looked after. Lovely pub up the road. Brogdale farm shop and cafe/restaurant within walking distance.

Faversham town 2. 5 miles away. Lovely countryside for walking/cycling. Decent WiFi but poor TV a reception.

Would definitely return.

I cannot comment on child friendliness as I donít have any and there were none there so you really need a N/A option in the next question!

 We had a wonderful time at Painters Farm. The new owners are very friendly and Stan could not do enough to make us welcome and our stay relaxed.

We have visited Painters farm for many years and are so happy that there is still the relaxed atmosphere of a pretty and peaceful site with many lovely walks.

The sunset this weekend was amazing

 The site is a hidden gem! We've been coming here every year for over 20 years, but never written about it, wanting to keep it secret.

It has everything you need, clean and tidy and well looked after and the managers are always friendly and helpful.

The pub in the village is beautiful too - 200 yards or so up the road and does great meals (not on Sundays!).

Highly recommended!

 Lovely quiet site, kept very clean, Ann and staff are more than helpful and always around to help. There is good spacing between each caravan/tent and plenty of fresh water points of which the water is always very nice and cool.

Good facilities and kept in the same area. The walks around the campsite are lovely with lots of non-road walking. Lovely pub a two minute walk away and a small park for the children just opposite.

The campsite is situated perfectly to feel like your own countryside oasis.

 We had a delightful welcome from Ann on arrival. She'd contacted us before we set off because she was worried the weather would be too much for us, and when we finally arrived (in the dark) she showed us round the most suitable pitches, also making sure we knew where to find her if disaster struck. This our first go in our new-to-us Karsten so the 45+ mph gusts were just what we wanted.

The site itself is very pleasant: good ground for plastic pegs, though a little bit lumpy and bumpy, with a good number of mature fruit trees which put make it spectacular when they're in blossom. There's plenty of cover if you need it from the various outbuildings. The views aren't particularly interesting because it's in a very flat area. Try Sunnyside Farm if you want gorgeous views from your pitch.

Access is tight and windey, even once you get there. Do heed Ann's directions rather than your satnav's if you ever want to see your family again.

There are downsides to this site, alas: hot water is entirely via Triton on demand electric water heaters. Showers (on a slot box) are those 3kw units which used to be acceptable in the mid 1980s, and at the sinks you get to share a pathetic dribbler between two. This is also the case at the washing up sinks. Fine for a weekender, but I wouldn't spend more than two nights making do. Other than the hot water supply, the facilities are very good and absolutely spotless. EHU is 16A and solid, but not all the MCBs are get-at-able, so you may need to contact Ann if you trip yours.

The local pub looks like a good example of an east Kent boozer (strictly, a "boozer of Kent") but alas we didn't get a chance to visit. I used to live in nearby Old Wives Lees about a thousand years ago, and surprisingly I still found the area a few miles to the south a bit more agreeable.

 A lovely campsite and a friendly & helpful welcome form Ann. Grass pitches, some trees for shade. Toilets and good shower 20p for 10 mins for 40p for longer, regularly cleaned.

The Office has a good selection of local leaflets and books for reading. Dogs welcome, two immediate walks from the campsite for them, do clear up. The Alma pub just a couple of minutes walk, a lovely gem, reasonable prices too, beautiful garden, where we sat in the sunshine with the dogs.

We enjoyed our visits to Faversham, Sheerness and Canterbury. PLEASE be CAREFUL to READ the Correct directions into the Campsite from the Main Road (on their website, ) DO NOT Take the tiny road the SAT_NAV takes you to!
