What a lovely find, it is peaceful and very low key, has basic shower block which is very clean and tidy, and washing up area. No one under the age of 18 allowed on the site, which is fantastic :) great big field for tents, 10 hardstanding with electric hook up. I have seen remarks about urban noise but look at the location you are, it is expected, but it is very quiet with the odd distant plane, train or car, and hot air balloon lol scenery is absolutely stunning, with Ashdown forest and Bewl just minutes away.

This site is pure relaxation, warm welcome and plenty of apples, we will definitely will be returning. With homemade cider :)

Stayed for 5 nights primarily to attend a wedding in Tunbridge Wells. Comfortable, friendly and well kept site with hard-standing touring pitches surrounded by orchards. Good views and pleasantly quiet despite the close proximity of the main roads. Modern, warm and clean toilet/shower block with no annoying closure times for cleaning. Ideally situated for exploring local area with many interesting towns and historic monuments. On bus route from end of lane and able to walk into Tonbridge (25 mins). Good for dogs too. Would recommend and use again.

This campsite is about as local as they come. It's not near the beach and I've seen the castle, well what's left of it.

This site is easy to get into and has no hair raising drives through narrow roads with blind corners, that said getting across the road when leaving can take a while. You just need a bit of common sense from other drivers to let you out. The people of Tonbridge are pretty good at that. Driving near here is farcical at most times of the day. If it's not rush hour its the school run. If it's not the school run it's lunchtime. If its not lunchtime it's the next school run and then rush hour again. It can take an hour to head south so choose your times carefully.

I for one really appreciate the efforts the owners have made to make the site secure and functional. There are some beautiful evening sunsets, assuming you aren't still stuck on the A26. For the visitor Tonbridge has a plethora of things to do, primarily visiting the surrounding area, Hever Castle, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Groomsbridge etc etc.

Time it right and you will not be disappointed. Please be sure to read the other reviews. Ask not what Apple Acres can do for you but what you can do for Apple Acres. I have looked at other sites and found the roads wanting. Some are quite frankly so unsuitable for large vehicles and units there needs to be designated times when traffic is one way.

Well, what a wonderful site. The views are wonderful and so nice to have peace and quiet. The site is everything we wanted and so close to towns and tourist attractions. So many parks, castles and gardens. I am incensed by some of the reviews. Aircraft do, sometimes fly over, if the wind is in the wrong direction, there is a distant hum but what do you expect? The site is only forty miles from London. You are not in the middle of the Gobi desert! Showers are lovely, plenty of space all around and the site is so well run. Why do some people just look for things to moan about? They seem to only be happy to point out any slight negatives. We have booked again for next year and are very much looking forward to it. All in all a superb site.

A superb site conveniently situated in the Weald near to Tunbridge Wells. The grounds within the orchard site are well cared for and the facilities are excellent - a nice little toilet block and all basic services are readily to hand. Owners Bernie and Robert are nice people and there for you if needed. I thoroughly recommend this site.

Having read the reviews on this site it appeared to be a perfect place to stay for 5 nights to explore Tonbridge & the surrounding area. In reality we were very disappointed & will not be returning to this one.

Yes the directions on their website made it easy to find, what they fail to tell you is outside the campsite the roads in all directions are gridlocked. It took nearly an hour to go 7 miles.

When we arrived the site looked quite well maintained & cared for. We later discovered this was not so.

The shower block is fairly new, nicely laid out & showers are lovely. However, it was let down by not being particularly clean. I don't know if it was cleaned while we were there, if so it was not done very well.

The site is on a slope & full of apple trees, which looks nice. There was fruit & grass mowings left all over the ground, making it slippery, uneven & difficult to walk on. Not good for those with mobility problems.

We were greeted by a security gate, with instructions to go to reception to check in. When we found someone we were given the wrong code. This was the only time we saw anyone in reception during our stay, until we were leaving.

We did not feel very welcome at all. We were not alone in this, the people next to us were so unhappy they went home two days early.

It certainly is not a site to go to for a peaceful break. There was a combination of being directly under a flight path, constant road & rail noise & train whistle point for a nearby hazard.

On a positive note, to end, it was really nice to have showers which were not timed.
