Site details

Why stay here

Placed in a pocket of grassy Kentish countryside, on a 'patchwork quilt' of farmer’s fields and tantalisingly close to soft, sandy beaches, you're on to a winner with one of our top British holidaying destinations!

Our peaceful site is perfect for couples and families, where you can plunge yourself in this gorgeous green region. Miles of tracks and pathways encircle the area where you can really let yourself go and make your own adventures. We're conveniently situated near Folkestone and Dover too.

Within a five mile radius are plenty of attractions to visit, such as Port Lympne Wildlife Park, Haguelands Farm Village and Maze, Dymchurch’s golden sandy beaches, as well as Saltwood Castle and the traditional market town of Hythe.

Family days out

Meet the giraffes, rhinos, tigers and monkeys at Port Lympne Wildlife Park - 45 minutes on foot or 10 minutes away by car, this award winning reserve will take you on a safari experience through the animal enclosures - there's even a dinosaur forest.

Beaches are easy to reach Dymchurch, is a 10 minute drive south of the site with broad, sandy shores. Head north for five miles and you’ll find Hythe, a traditional medieval town with a pebble beach and bags of character. Both of these towns have train and bus connections.

Dover Castle makes for a fantastic day out with the kids. Explore secret tunnels, stand atop the tallest tower, interact with exhibits, play games, join in events and run free on the grassy grounds.

Trips to France made easy

Our campsite is near to Folkestone and Dover, to the west and just off the M20. It takes less than 20 minutes to drive to Eurotunnel Le Shuttle and approximately 30 minutes from the Dover car ferry port (traffic depending of course), making crossing to France for a day a breeze.

Activities & experiences nearby


Cycling

Our site sits near to the grassy flats of Romney Marsh. The well-trodden tracks weave through the countryside for miles and are suitable for cyclists of all abilities.

Bike hire is available in New Romney, making it easy to explore the circular route that passes the Royal Military Canal. The Romney Marsh Countryside Project runs guided tours throughout the year too and long distance riders can access the National Cycle ‘Route 2’ Dover to Newhaven which passes right by the site. View the Sustrans route map.


Walking

Explore the area on the circular route that can be joined at Burmarsh. The 10 mile circuit takes approximately 5 to 6 hours - not including a cheeky pub stop along the way.

Hythe has some gorgeous sandy beaches to explore at Dymchurch, Greatstone and St Mary's Bay, as well as shingle beaches at Dungeness and Littlestone.

Trekking routes include Tolsford Hill, an area of untouched parkland where you can pass over chalky byways, grassy meadows and sloping hills. You may get to see local wildlife, including wild buzzards and skylarks.


Things to try

Go karting at the Lydd Karting circuit is suitable for kids, big kids and the kids at heart. For those who like team sports, head down to Domination Paintball in Haguelands Village near Dymchurch for a super paintball match.

For water-lovers, grab some paddles and hire a boat at The Royal Military Canal, where you can have a go at rowing. Or instead test out your balancing skills in Mote Park at Leeds Castle on a Segway experience.

For crafty types - get messy in a chocolate workshop and make your own tasty treats with Handmade by Henry in Hythe. Alternatively The Sewing Space, also in Hythe, offers sewing and quilting workshops, teaching techniques from dressmaking to gift craft for all ages and abilities.


Pubs and restaurants

Perfect on a sunny day, taste the local beers at the laid back, riverside Hop Fuzz Brewery and Unit One bar, in Hythe. They serve uncomplicated yet wholesome, fresh pub grub and have ample places to park.

Traditional old English pubs are dotted around the area, including The Shepherd and Crook in Burmarsh which is just over a mile away from the site. Further afield, (a 30 minute cycle ride or 2 hour walk) is the White Horse at Bilsington, with its wooden beams and exposed brick walls, serving classic pub food.

Fancy a cream tea? Head across the field behind the campsite to Lathe Barn Tea Rooms, a cosy lunch spot serving up all sorts, from homemade soup to sweet pastries. Alternatively, Lympne Bistro just past the Port Lympne Wildlife Park offers a range of freshly made food in a rustic, contemporary converted barn.
