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

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

Relaxing and beautiful

Shingle Hall Farm
Would highly recommend! Perfectly organised booking, and an extremely warm welcome from both David and Susan. It was lovely that they went the extra mile giving us a local map, and always available to ask questions and give top tips. The site is beautifully kept and flat, with a few dips here and there, but plenty of space to find a good base. The ducks were an added bonus keeping us amused (they are kept separate from the camping field, so don't worry!) Thank you both for such a lovely stay!

An excellent base to explore an unusual part of the UK

Shingle Hall Farm
Yes, it's a rural site and all the better for that, but rustic it is not. It is immaculately kept. Great for easy cycling and walking with lots of interesting places readily accessible. The proprietors David and Susan are friendly, informative and helpful, readily available but never intrusive. We rarely consider returning to any site we have visited. This will be an exception. Highly recommended.

Awesome stay with great hosts.

Shingle Hall Farm
Arriving at Shingle Hall farm was more like visiting old friends than checking in to a certified location. David and Susan were the perfect hosts and were very friendly with lots of welcome tips regarding places to go in the area. The farm is within the Romney Marsh area and there are many beaches within a small distance. There are many takeaway shops and pubs in the area serving traditional food. Sainsbury's supermarket in is New Romney for groceries. Dungeness is around 8 miles from the CL along the coast road and is well worth a visit. I enjoyed it so much here that I have rebooked for October 2021. Many thanks David and Susan.

A Gem of a CL!

Shingle Hall Farm
We would like to echo the positivity of the previous reviews. This is a wonderful CL, run extremely well by David and Susan who were excellent hosts when we stayed for seven nights recently, Although it is situated in a very rural location, there are lots of attractions very close by - accessible on foot, by bike and by car. Highly recommended!
