Why stay here ...

This site has changed ownership and recently re-opened.  Toilet and laundry facilities have been revamped and are well looked after.  You have the choice of grass or hardstanding pitches all with electrical-hook ups available.  We are looking forward to welcoming you.

Nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty and in an area of specific scientific interest, The Spinney sits within 50 meters of the Royal Military Canal, with a wealth of wildlife a few steps away. You can enjoy fishing, ambling along one of the many footpaths, or boating and kayaking. We have amazing uninterrupted views of the Kent countryside. If you are into nature and the great outdoors, this is the place for you. We are right on the National Cycle network, leading through the Romney Marsh and down to the coast.

The Royal Military Canal is steeped in history, and just a short walk away you will find pillboxes dotted along the canal. As you wander along the Canal, by bearing left from the campsite, your route will take you to the small village of Bonnington, with its beautiful church sitting just off the bank. Port Lympne Zoo is approximately 3 miles from the campsite which you will be able to see in the distance, and there is also the popular seaside town of Dymchurch around 3 miles away. Dymchurch is home to many amusements, the best homemade ice cream at Ameretos I have ever tasted, fish and chips and of course wonderful seafood. From here, you can follow the coast in either direction to either New Romney or Folkestone.

Noel Coward used to only live a few houses away from the campsite and we have a photo of him sitting outside of our house along the canal, painting a picture of the Canal at Giggers Bridge.

We are sorry but we do not offer car charging facilities on site.

One of our favourite sites

Being new to owning a caravan and towing (though not to campervanning), we chose this site for our first time away because a) it was close to home just in case we'd forgotten something and b) we knew the roads to and from the site would provide good experience from a towing point of view. Well thankfully we didn't forget anything essential, and while the roads might only be of concern to a newbie caravan-tower like I was, they didn't cause any concern either - even the turning into the site didn't cause any problems - so it was a good choice in that respect. As our first stay there was in December 2017, the field would have been too wet and soft for us so we used the hardstanding next to the washroom. The site itself was perfect for us, proving to be reasonably sheltered from the wind blowing across the marsh and beautifully quiet - with only the occasional car or cycle riders passing. The owners are good, friendly people and not intrusive at all, the washroom is more than adequate (including a washing machine and tumble dryer) and has always been clean during our stays. We like this site so much we've been there three times since - and hope to be visiting again very soon.

Perfect location for the Downs & more

We stayed mid March for two weeks. Great owners very helpful and Knowledgable of the area. Laundry and Toilets were brilliant. Location perfect if you wanted an overnighter before catching a ferry to the continent. Great walks in the area on the Downs. Wildlife all over the Marshes. We enjoyed our stay.

Brilliant Site - one of the best

We stayed here for 1 night over the bank holiday. The site is level and nice trimmed grass. New hut with toilet and washing facilities. As stated in other posts great views over the local countryside. Easy access though we missed the turning in Hythe so ended up approaching from the opposite direction from Dymchurch. We could not get in on the EHU side due to the pitching of other units but were happy to be on the other side with no EHU to get the space and evening sun. The owners came out in the evening to collect the money and said you can park on the HS near the toilet if you wanted to. Will definitely return when next in the area.
