Overpriced for standard of site

Cobbs Meadow
Visited Cobbs Meadow for 4 nights over the Mayday Bank Holiday Weekend Felt the site was overpriced at £20. The total number of units on site did go up to 7 on one night The description says there is WIFI and an information shed. No sign of either. The grass was overlong and where it had been mown, the cuttings had not been collected. This meant that after it rained, the aquarolls were plastered in grass cuttings after dragging across the field There was some road noise from 'speeding traffic' but did not really cause a problem Was nice to hear the dawn chorus from Howletts when the wind was in the right direction

Great for a short break in Kent

Cobbs Meadow
Nice site tucked away a walkable distance from Canterbury. There's a Park & Ride a short distance from the site for non-walkers. The owner (who lives offsite) is friendly and calls most afternoons to empty the bins and keep the site shipshape. The only slight downside is the adjacent very narrow rat-run lane which can, on occasion, be noisy with boy racers. The London-Dover rail mainline is on the other side if the site but we could hardly hear it.

Easiest Site I've Booked Excellent Layout

Cobbs Meadow
Booked for 4 nights over May Bank Holiday. So easy to book, very nice quite, clean large site. The 5 Vans are very far from each other. The Owner, Mrs Ash, absolute gem, no hassle, keeps site very clean and she remove rubbish daily. Very easy communications, paid on line, just turned up and chose our spot. Little noisy near the road that passes, but being a "Country Lane" hardly any traffic at night. Plus the field is so big you can be away from road if you wish. Really enjoyed our stay and of course with Canterbury 2 miles away, much to see and do. Excellent.

Nice location

Cobbs Meadow
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

Cobbs Meadow
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
