Why stay here ...

Our CL is a small site, situated in beautiful Kentish countryside. The site is in very close proximity to Bough Beech reservoir which is fabulous for watching the array of birds and wildlife. The site has lawned pitches and is part sloping. There are several National Trust and historic properties locally, including Emmetts Garden, Chartwell, Penshurst Place and Hever Castle. The surrounding countryside is a gem for walkers, birdwatchers and anybody wanting to explore this beautiful county. Pets and children welcome.

Perfect location

We stayed here for 5 nights so we could meet up on a couple of days with our daughter and her boyfriend after months of separation due to the pandemic. The position of the site is just off a main road - but the traffic is minimal during the day - and practically non-existent at night. We pitched on the flat and Mrs Vicary very kindly offered us the use of an extension lead so we could utilise the ehu. The grass could have perhaps done with a cut - we noticed the grass had been cut from the fence line on the run up to the entry gate - but not expanded further out into the field - which was a shame really as the ground was pretty "lumpy" - other than that we could not fault the site. We tend to leave our motorhome in situ when we visit and cycle everywhere. Fortunately most of the attractions we visited were within cycling distance (Chartwell, Hever, Emmett's Garden) and the power assist bikes came into their own - especially with the amount of hills in the area! We also walked a loop to Four Elms and back, following the designated footpath signs. The walk was absolutely lovely. I would highly recommend this friendly, welcoming site if visiting this part of Kent. The countryside is stunning - and at this time of year (April) the bluebells are prolific and a joy to see.

We will be back again very soon!

We stayed at Hilder's Farm Cottage CL for 6 days the week that campsites were allowed to re-open. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome and at home. The view across the reservoir was stunning and a joy to take in as I had my morning coffee! The site has enough facilities to make your stay comfortable. Levelling blocks are required as some of the site is on a slope. We visited the local pub, spent days geocaching with the dog and our son in the countryside and had a day out in Tunbridge Wells. The owners are more than happy to help out when needed as we found out when we needed to change our gas regulator, but had forgotten the spanner! COVID cleaning procedures were spot on, with owners disinfecting throughout the day and hand sanitiser provided at all common touchpoints. The site is large enough to play badminton and football with the kids or to have the dog chasing a ball on his long lead, even when at capacity. All in all, we were sad to leave and are looking forward to visiting again soon.

Lovely little Cl overlooking the reservoir

This is one of our favourite places of last year and only 5 miles from our house. We spent a long weekend there and was lovely. We was with 4 other campers but even though it's a small site we still felt privite. Mrs Vicary is very nice even offered us the use of the garden toys for our children and her son made friends with our kids. The only real noise from the road was cyclists. It was nice to wake up and look over the lake and fields. It's our first stop of 2021 which is why I'm writing this review

A lovely little site..

We stayed here for just one night whilst visiting family and were very impressed with it, in fact so much that we will be visiting again for a longer stay next time. A small, clean and friendly site with just enough facilities to make your stay a comfortable one. Slightly sloping but with plenty of wooden blocks available for caravan levelling, not so easy for motorhomes so levelling ramps will be needed if you can't get to the flatter area of the field. Nice views over Bough Beech reservoir and plenty of walks to tire you out. Thoroughly recommended and looking forward to our next visit.

Central for lots of National Trust properties

A great site for easy access to a number of National trust properties plus other places of interest. The site is sloping with one flat area at the top near the gate or alternatively at the bottom of the field but be aware you will need extra electric hook up cable to reach. The grass is somewhat long and could do with cutting. The road is fairly busy but not particularly obtrusive. The children of the owner use the site as an extension to their garden and bikes are often littered around, not always in the most sensible of places but that’s children for you! The owners are lovely and very welcoming.
