Idyllic

Howletts Farm
Beautifully maintained, level, protected by hedges/trees all round. Fabulous views across wooded valley. Friendly relaxed owners. 20 minutes from Canterbury city centre, half hour from Whitstable seafront, but completely rural and peaceful. Only warning - don't trust your satnav if it picks the shortest route from the M2, as that entails some really narrow single track lanes: not fun. Much better to approach via the A28 and A252, turning off at Chilham. It's a steep climb, but less than a mile, up the approach lane, and infinitely preferable to losing a wing mirror to an oncoming van as we did on the satnav's suggested route. Would also make a great stop over for cross-channel trips.

Peaceful CL

Howletts Farm
What a lovely site! Came with another friend, the kids and dogs. Very welcoming and friendly and couldn't fault the facilities, water point and toilet emptying. It was so peaceful, yes it's on a working farm, but the noise of tractors passing was very minimal. Slightly sloping in places, but was not an issue and very well kept field and clean, surrounded by hedges and trees and when the sun shines it's like a sun trap. Just make sure you follow the directions given and not a Sat Nav. Will definitely be going back.. Thank you for a lovely stay.

One of the Nicest CL's We've Stayed At

Howletts Farm
This is a beautiful kept CL with plenty of space. Grass was extremely flat and well looked after. Good TV signal. Lovely Views with a friendly owner. Canterbury is a lovely city. The site is about 10minutes drive from the park and ride and a retail park with a Morrisons. It is about 15-20 minutes into Canterbury but parking was quite expensive. In relation to the noise, we can only say we found this site quiet and relaxing. There was no road noise as it really is in the countryside and their was only the odd tractor went by. However, we found the owner very helpful so I'm sure if people wanted to ask if it was a noisy time then she would tell you.

not always peaceful

Howletts Farm
We appreciate this site is known as a quiet and peaceful one, but want to warn others that it is not always so. The owners run a logging business from the premises and when we stayed in September 2015 this was very noisy and ruined our stay. We suggest speaking to the owners first regarding the current noise level, otherwise a beautiful site.

A Quiet Haven with Views

Howletts Farm
Delightful CL with views down over the Kent countryside. Owners friendly and helpful. Sunny weather enhanced our very peaceful two night stay. Ideally situated for a relaxing break with some exploring on foot to Chilham and the surrounding area. Canterbury and Ashford only a few minutes drive. A great CL location enabling us to use our full caravan facilities. We look forward to a return visit.
