Fab little place.

The Field
Great little place, easy to find, young lady of the family kindly bought my dog some treats. Make sure you eat at the Bell Inn, great food. Also a few hundred yards walk to a brilliant viewpoint.

Good site, we would return

The Field
A nice little site. 100m on the right down the road from the church. 5 EHU hook ups Water and dump point on site Run by man over the road who is a builder, so typically available late afternoon Just beyond 'The Field' site is Huckleberries camp site and just beyond that is Gooseberry's camp site. Both closed at time of writing (Pandemic lock down currently applies) Village is pretty, old church, dutch gabled houses, antique shop and 2 pubs and a shop/post office At time of writing due to the Pandemic most are closed, but the Bell Pub is open (outside only) very friendly welcome. Lots to do on the Isle of Thanet, very good for cycling. The Viking Trail runs through the village and the Saxon Shore trail is very close

Great for Broadstairs and surrounding areas

The Field
Stayed over for 1 night in September. Owner managed to slip us in last minute which we were thankful for. Warm welcome to the place. This site is literally in the village with its pubs and lovely post office shop. Thank you.

Delightful CL

The Field
A new CL well located for the village which has 2 pubs and a small shop. An easy 20min walk to the bus route between Canterbury and Margate from where it is easy to travel to other interesting towns. Water, power and emptying facilities well located. Newly planted hedging surrounding the site will soon really enhance the location. Caution. Although well draining, after heavy rain the surface becomes slippery which can be a problem for a motorhome as there are no hardstandings.
