Fantastic! Highly recommended and will return

Stayed for two nights and had a great weekend. We went with friends so had two caravans, 4 adults and a dog in total. We were allowed to pitch together and however we liked to suit our vans so not having to stick to grid lines like lots of sites. There was the offer of hard standing or grass. The woods where we were allowed to walk the dog (on a lead) was absolutely beautiful with fairy lights that come on as soon as it's dark and light a path. There is a bbq with bar area and fire pits, tables and chairs in there too so it would be a fantastic location for a party or wedding. Then there's the pop up entertainment area where they can set up another bar, the gorgeous new shower (only one but we didn't have to wait or queue), glamping the other side of the farm and the animals. We had a fantastic weekend and even bought some of their meat (frozen) which we've eaten this week and it was gorgeous and really quite cheap - sausages, streaky bacon and beef skirt for stew. They also sell eggs from the freely roaming chickens - and maybe duck eggs too but not sure - as well as wool from their own sheep and other bits in the shop area. Would not hesitate to recommend and return. Thank you Ruth and Norman and family.


A real gem of a site

Spent 15 nights here and absolutely enjoyed the wonderful surroundings in a peaceful setting. Great views and plenty of bird displays by Buzzards and more. Ruth and Norman very welcoming and gave us a tour of both their CL locations during our stay and enjoyed seeing the farm livestock. They even arranged fantastic weather.... We used this site to relax and unwind in the main and to visit some Kent attractions, including Hever Castle and also Bodiam castle via the steam railway from Tenterden. Great Saturday market in Faversham and finally an air show at Headcorn airfield. We were even treated to an impromptu solo Spitfire display over the CL as we dismantled the awning on our last evening. Duck eggs and sausages from the farm went down well and cannot wait to sample the steak we bought prior to departure! Unable to comment on washroom facilities as we did not use them, as we do not also use them on club sites, but expect they are to a high standard in line with the excellent way the CL is managed. Will return in the future, for sure.


The best CL site we have stayed on

There is no underestimating the hard work and thought that the owners have invested here. Everything is well put together with quality facilities, within picturesque grounds. added to that the owners happen to be lovely - very helpful and friendly people - gives an overall experience that must be experienced. If you are looking for something in this location, give this a go. Although this site is not far from a main route, you could be anywhere here, no road noise or passing traffic etc. Great for exploring.


Beautiful peaceful Site

What a beautiful peaceful site. Ruth and Norman made us very welcome. Hope to be back soon
