Why stay here ...

This quiet, rural, adults only site is surrounded by farmland on Romney Marsh, Kent. Pets are welcome. It is a large, well-maintained, flat, gated paddock with five electrical hook ups (16 amps). There is ample space for awnings etc. There are several good village pubs within walking distance. Access from the New Romney or Dymchurch (A259) is excellent and is our recommended route.

The site is within two miles of beautiful, sandy beaches. There are various small supermarkets also within two miles of the site. Ashford and Folkestone both offer larger supermarkets and shops and are a 20 minutes drive, alternatively take a ride on the little train from St Mary's Bay (1.5 miles) to Hythe for other larger supermarkets and a mooch around the small, independent shops or take a leisurely stroll along the Royal Military Canal.

We have our own small flock of ducks and gees and sell uptra-fresh, zero food mile eggs to visitors.

Romney Marsh is a flat, sparsely populated, wetland area. It covers about 100 square miles (260 km2). The history and topography of the area is fascinating and many visitors have realised they needed more time to explore.

David and Susan who have lived in the area for over 25 years and would be happy to assist you to ensure you get the maximum enjoyment from your stay at Shingle Hall Farm.  They are avid and experienced caravan and motorhome owners.

Visitors come to this area for numerous reasons and to list but a few:

  • Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway (1.5 miles)
  • Sea fishing at Dungeness (8.5 miles)
  • RSPB Nature Reserve Dungeness (8.5 miles)
  • Port Lympne Zoo (8 miles)
  • Dover Castle (22 miles)
  • Our sunrise and sunsets are legendry
  • Quiet country lanes excellent for cycling or walking
  • Many footpaths and byways to explore
  • Photograph, draw or paint our wonderful landscape with its unusual churches and far-reaching views
  • Peace and tranquility
  • Walk or cycle the England Coast Path around Romney Marsh

Lovely stay, owners are fab

Shingle Hall Farm
Just returned from a 3 night stay at Shingle Farm. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome, almost part of the family. David and Susan were great from the get go. Easy to chat to, full of good local knowledge which made our stay relaxing and fun. The site is well maintained (David takes great pride in his grass!), quiet and welcoming, with facilities as you would expect. We had lunch in the garden of the Star Inn overlooking the Church, lovely. It's just a short walk across the field, or an easy 5 minute bike ride. Also enjoyed a 10 minute bike ride to the beach where we had the best fish and chips on the beach from a fishmongers in St Marys Bay - on Susan's recommendation. Lovely and quiet at night and with no light pollution, sitting under the stars with a glass of wine was just brilliant. We'll definitely be back! Nigel and Cathie 14/9/21

Excellent CL-very well run, friendly, helpful owners (caravan)

Shingle Hall Farm
David & Susan gave us a very warm welcome. Booking was so easy with very fast response to e mails; excellent communication before & during our stay. Nothing was tooo much trouble. The site was very well maintained, level which was important as I have mobility issues, grass well cut & collected. Water points etc were easily located. Excellent security with a key coded gate & CCTV. Access to some very interesting sites was very easy. Ideal for cyclists & I was able to use my wheelchair bike. Our dog was made very welcome. David was very happy to answer any questions that we had about local amenities. We will certainly be back. Recommend St Mary's Bay for dog walking & lovely sandy beaches Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch railway-which actually goes as far as Dungeness Rye Nature Reserve & bike trail Rye town to look round The Pub at St Mary in the Marsh-serves a wonderful Lamb pie Thank you Carole, John & Bumble

The best grass pitch

Shingle Hall Farm
David and his wife give such a warm welcome. The site is always absolutely immaculate and the grass pitches are lovely to stay on. No grass cuttings lying around. It's easy to find dog walks from site, and there are so many places to explore at a leisurely pace. Very highly recommended and we will definitely be back in spring if not before.

First class in every respect

Shingle Hall Farm
I echo so many of the reviews below about this CL which, together with its owners, David and Susan, is first class in every respect. I don’t think I have stayed with more accommodating and helpful hosts in the last 12 years of staying on CLs up and down the country. This is a highly-organised and immaculate CL in a quiet and unspoiled part of Kent. David and Susan both went out of their way to make me feel welcome and to share a wealth of local tips and ideas for days out. Nearby towns and villages such as Hythe and New Romney are lovely. Dungeness is a stunning windswept nature reserve which is almost other-worldly and well worth the flat cycle from the CL along the coast path, or a ride on the fabulous Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Light Railway. The local pub is 15th century, can be accessed on a short signposted footpath from the CL (David kindly gave a map when I arrived which was excellent hosting), and serves a selection of local real ales and the best lamb and mint pie I have ever eaten, period! Well worth a visit there if you like good old fashioned pub grub and a pint without having to worry about driving back to the CL. I really hope to return to this hidden gem in the Kent marshes. Thank you David and Susan for your beautiful CL and hospitality!

A 1st class and very well run C.L.

Shingle Hall Farm

From the initial booking and communication with David, the co-owner of the site with his wife Susan, I got the impression it was a very well run, clean and tidy site.On arrival David was there to greet us and run through a few formalities.We were given a choice of pitches and advised accordingly.Although the site has no toilets or showers this did not in any way detract from our stay.The location ,space available and tranquility are second to none and the surrounding area is ideal for those that like cycling on flat quiet roads and only 1.8 miles from the sea at St.Marys Bay. We will definitely be returning -thank you David and Susan for making our stay such a pleasant experience!! Geoff and Ann Selsey
