Nice location

We enjoyed our five night stay at Cobbs Meadow. Just a short drive into the City or the shopping outlets,but we used the Park and Ride,so much better. The site is spacious with loads of room between pitches,the water taps (2) one by the gate,the other near the railway,they are if your pitched nearer the road a good walk across the large field. The road is narrow and very busy but is quieter at night..Take care when leaving the site. Many of the roads around the area are used as rat runs and are very busy for narrow roads. The railway was no trouble at all,you wouldn't know it was there. We tried a few of the footpath walks and they were nice. Overall we had a nice holiday and would stay here again if in the area.

Smashing Little Location

Stayed here for two nights on the weekend of 28-30 June 2019. Booked and paid in advance which was really easy. £13.50 a night including EHU. Field is flat and sits between a minor road and a train line, minimal noise which had no impact on us. Cross country footpaths right beside the site. We had planned to walk into Canterbury but with the temperature in the 30s we gave it a miss and walked ten minutes to Bekesbourne station, train took 5 minutes to reach Canterbury East. Location wise you cant beat it for easy access into Canterbury We had the added bonus of a Spitfire doing barrel rolls above us on Saturday afternoon, the noise of those engines magnificient. Will definitely be back

Love this CL

We have visited Cobbs Meadow several times with our 2 Springers and have always found it to be a place we want to return to. The owner is both friendly and helpful. There is a public footpath practically opposite the site entrance which leads into fields and woodland and is ideal for running our dogs off lead as it is safe for them. The site itself is very spacious with adequate facilities. There is a railway line set down behind the site but it can't be seen and is not particularly audible from the site. The lane on which the site is set can be a bit busy in the rush hour but soon quietens down and isn't particularly noisy at other times. We love this site..for us it is a place to unwind and relax. However, it is a good base to visit Canterbury and other attractions as it is possible to walk to the station from the site or even walk into Canterbury which takes about 50 minutes. Thank you Mrs. Ash for all the times we have enjoyed being at Cobbs Meadow. We will be back again. Bob & Shirley Ellis

july 18 visit

enjoyed this cl - very good location for access to canterbury and other local attractions - we cycled to canterbury from site largely off road , the meadow is lovely and loads of space for us - ehu reliable - entrance does need care but the directions emailed to us by owner were easy to follow and made us aware of entrance before we got there (or went past) - would be pleased to stay again next time in area

Very convenient CL

Just spent two nights on this CL, spacious flat field, well kept short grass, well sheltered. Whilst we would agree with previous comments about some road noise it is not that intrusive and does not detract from the site. It is approx 20-30 min walk to the bus stop into Canterbury, (it is possible to continue and walk into the city, rest of way on footpath) the walk to the bus stop is along the lane with no footpath however we walked this on a couple of occasions without any issues. There is a map of walks displayed on site that may provide other possibilities. The owner provided a very useful information sheet covering the local area. The approach is narrow in places so caution needed, also we had no problem with the site entrance. All in all a very nice CL and will return in the future.
