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.

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.

Peaceful and friendly

Lovely peaceful basic CL. Very friendly owners. Although the field is sloping we were sited at the bottom and that was level. We didn't bother with EHU but it would have needed very long cable across field. Water/refuse and loo-emptying all sited near the entrance gate, which is protected with a combination lock. The pub is a good 20 min walk along a narrow lane without any pedestrian ways. We took the M/H up and it was possible to park in the car park. Pub serves real ale and the food isn't cheap but was high quality, service was slow when we went although they weren't busy. The CL is an excellent base for visiting the NT properties nearby.

A place to unwind

We have just returned from a 3 night stay here. We arrived and set up on a field next to Mrs Vicary's house. There are electric hookups so we were on grid very quickly. The field slopes so levellers are a must. The views are lovely over the Bough Beech reservoir. The site is on a minor road so there is little noise. As we have a motorhome we did a couple of good walks. One way to Emmett's Garden (National Trust) in Ide Hill (3.2 miles) and Hever Castle (3.1 miles) Hever is a much flatter walk. The family were very welcoming and the site is well maintained. We would not hesitate to stay here again if in the area.

Nice little site

This is a very pleasant site where we spent 2 nights. Well looked after and a friendly welcome (and nice to meet the owners' children!). Unlike some other reviewers we weren't bothered by traffic noise. The lane is quite narrow, but so are all the other roads around here - we came from M25 westbound down B2042 and down the lane from the north, not the route recommended in the book, and the B road was harder work than the lane. Good basic facilities. A pretty steep slope at the top of the field, where the hookups are; level at the bottom where we pitched but then you might need a long lead, the owners did offer an extra lead if needed but ours was just long enough.
