 The site itself is fairly quiet and a short walk from the River Medway.

The ground is very hard, you will need good pegs, not the thin wire ones.

Nothing open on site (the hop farm itself is closed for 2023), so you will need to entertain yourself.

The toilets and showers were grubby, didn't see anyone cleaning or sweeping them the entire weekend, and nothing left for people to clean after themselves.

The extractor fans looked like something out of a haunted house!

The site itself is clean and tidy, just toilet blocks arent!

 We had booked this purely because it was the nearest to our motorhome mechanic. Just as well we only wanted an overnight stop with an early departure. We were very disappointed.

The grass was long and wet. Most of the pitches on our section were taken up by large fairground / circus type vehicles.

The toilets were good and clean but we needed to walk all through the long grass to get to them!

The site was very poorly lit if at all.

There was a long, dark walk to the pub. It is not "on-site" but a good 10/15 minute walk along unlit paths. It's a Brewers Fayre and very good value when you finally get there!

If the owners intend to open during the Winter they must pay more attention to the site.

At £31 it is expensive enough but there seems to be very little effort or maintenance to justify this. A poor experience for us.

 Two shower blocks one better than the other, elsan point is also grey waste that is 2 feet off the ground and out in the open. Couldnt lift a full waste container that high. The taps splash you and for some reason the kids love playing around the elsan point.

Had a mobile fish/chip Pub van there.

Hard standing pitches in there own fenced off area and was very quiet at night.

Some pitches were a little bumpy.

 Great site lots to do. And recommend all our friends to go.

All the toilets and showers were very clean.

Lots to do.

And our family and grand kids are popping over to see us.

And then we are going to book a family 4 day break

 Fabulous site and tremendously good value. You get to go into the activity park for half price if youíre camping.

Immaculate loo and shower block. Huge site consisting of three large fields and if, like us, you are with another family who have a tent, if you donít opt for EHU you can literally pitch up anywhere together since there are no allocated pitches for non EHU.

So, so spacious.

The grandkids want to return as soon as possible but unfortunately will have to be next summer now.

 Facilities not open due to COVID. Which we knew prior to visit. Very quiet site, good location.

Signage could be better as not easy to see how to get to camping area.

There was also a drive in cinema on the site and we directed 3 cars that had arrived for this whilst waiting for our taxi due to poor signage.

Good site for things to do in Kent.

Reviewer: Sumps53 37 reviews from this member

 Let's start with the positives, very friendly welcome, flexible over our request for a late departure. Kudos to that team. Near the river - although you can't really see it. We enjoyed the drive-in movie. There was a water tap on every power post. It's a good location for exploring Tunbridge Wells and the Medway towns.

And now the negatives. Lack of signage for access to site. The space - looked OK when we first arrived but boy do they cram them in. We would not come again for that reason alone. The ladies toilets/showers were out of action. The black waste disposal points were not signposted and were disgusting on Monday morning. There was waste everywhere - to be fair to the team, they do remove it (but it was overflowing) and the sewage removers came around 10 am Monday but it had reached critical mass by that point. But they were fighting a losing battle with that number of people around. No signs as to where to dispose of grey waste. I had paid £15 to bring a boat but there were no facilities(pontoon/jetty/) whatsoever and the river wasn't signed. Not sure what that money was actually for in retrospect.

The site could be so much better - it has good people - but it does need some money spent on it. If you are going to pack that number of people in, you need to have the infrastructure to cope with it. We will not return.

 Pulled up to book in and the lady behind the counter said she had 900 people turning up for this bank holiday weekend, I feared the worst. To my surprise the site is very large and this was not a problem. Toilets were ok and cleaned often, showers could do with an upgrade. They work ok but are dated There is a big attraction on site with free entry if camping, shop about a mile away, river side walks. Some pitches on our field were quit uneven, pitches are a good size. Access road to site pot holey to start with, gets better as you go in. Return in the future ???? Yes Recommend ??? Yes

Reviewer: Jobenjosh 1 review from this member

 This campsite has the potential to be so much more. I've only stayed here due to attending an event otherwise I would find another campsite.

After 3 years the washing up sinks are still not covered and extremely low meaning back breaking washing up. The shower block has blowers but not heated. And because of all the cut grass around the site they are full of grass. Something that could be easily remedied by having a squeegy mop in the showers to wipe down after. Pitches are a fair size and electric was ok. However for the price I would expect so much more.

Why not put a play area in for the children ( yes I know you have the hop farm facilities but that adds up for family's)

Why now even put a pontoon in to properly launch canoes into the Medway or lets go mad and put in some camping pods and hard standing pitches to bring more trade in all year round.

Booking was also a problem once we had the correct phone number it still seemed to be hard work to book in my group. Even on camp day there was confusion with our booking.

Come on Hop farm pull your socks up you could potentially have an award winning site in a glorious part of Kent

 We love coming here as a family. All my children of all ages from 2 to 17 enjoy the woodland walks, the facilities that are in the hop farm site the adventure playground is there favourite and the jumping pillows. Facilities are very good and clean. Been here many times and will be going back. Great area lots to do pitch sizes are just right.
