Beware of this site

We stayed here for 1 night in 2017 and left very early the next morning. The site had at least 3 permanent caravans being lived in. When we arrived one of these occupants moved their car into an empty pitch to stop us using it - nice! She said she was thinking of moving her 'van to that pitch when I asked why she had blocked it, but clearly she had no intention of doing so, as she had a full awning up and long grass all around her 'van. Over the next few hours, the site filled with 'vans and motorhomes, to the point 9 were onsite. When our friends (who had booked) arrived in the evening all electric points where in use (10 of them), but one had just been plugged in with the lead going nowhere, just in a role on the grass (this has been plugged in by a neighbouring caravan when we arrived to stop us using the point! even thought the 'van was already plugged into one of the other electric points). Our friends unplugged the useless lead and used that electric point, but they faced verbal aggressive abuse from the neighbouring caravan when he realised what had happened a few hours later. He had no explanation for why he had a cable plugged in that led nowhere! We could only speak to the owners, as we never saw them on site. The site has the potential to be nice, but years of neglect (overgrown hedges, bad water facilities, no signage at all) mean that you should steer clear. How it passes any kind of "inspection" by the club is beyond me.

How disappointing!

We stayed here for 5 nights in November 2014. Finding the site was easy enough, and it's pleasantly secluded. That for us was where the positives stopped. There were already 5 vans on site when we arrived, 3 of which appeared to have been there for months and 2 weren't occupied at all during the whole stay- doesn't this breach the CL rules? We couldn't find the owner so had to ring them to find out where the electric supply was - silly me for not looking at the back of overgrown bushes and brambles. Then we couldn't find the water, until a neighbour pointed out you had to disconnect the supply to the horses in the field and use that- charming! We got settled down on a wet field but with good views- great we thought. Early the next morning umpteen vehicles started pouring down the caravan field road to use the nearby paintball wood, no health and safety applied here. I'm not adverse to a bit of noise but it was quite substantial at times! Then the dog started barking uncontrollably and on looking out I could see 5 camo clad paintballers running though the site- now that was a bit much!!!! After telling myself it was a one off- the paintball in was on for 3 days out of 5 and my plan to walk the dog in the woods that are "occasionally closed" for paintball according to the site blurb -we're closed for business! The only good point here was the closeness to attractions such as Bluewater  and ease of access to the motorway. Did I enjoy our stay- No Would I come back- not if I could help it. Good value for money- yes if you can tolerate the above?

Handy for Cyclopark

A fairly basic but pleasant enough CL. It as a fairly thin strip of grass beside a rough track leading to a paintballing venue. The track was quite busy with traffic to-ing and fro-ing in the morning and late afternoon at the weekend. There are quite pleasant views over fields and paddocks. The grass was firm enough for our motorhome in March, but be aware that there is only one electric box (with 4 sockets only) in the middle of the area so long leads may be required - we had to join 2 together. It was was quite difficult to contact the owner - there was no reply to an email and the only number that we managed to speak to someone on was 07507 644280 - which is on a notice on the site but doesn't appear on this listing. We didn't see the owner during our 3 night stay but left the money (£12 with electric) in a postbox marked please pay here which was quite a way from the CL itself - but hopefully the correct place! As the previous reviewer said it is very handy for Gravesend Cyclopark which is an excellent facility.

BMX track

Great location for Gravesend BMX Track - we were here for races.  Nice and quiet, loads of room.  We got a bit lost, so follow directions - it's up a single lane, signed paintballing (the shooting from which disturbs the peace on Sunday morning!).  Trosley Country park is worth a visit - lovely walks.
