Perfect little spot

We have family living at Westwood Cross and this is an ideal location for us. We love being on small, isolated/quiet sites and this is one of them. Not having a shower block is not an issue for us - toilets do the job and with EHU and Elsan. We will definitely be back.

Couldn't Be Better Value and Toilet is Fine

Spent 10 days on this site with our friends in their unit during Broadstairs Folk Week, and what a fantastic find, end of a lane so no passing traffic, very quiet, only 5 units and all very pleasant characters. Check in could not be easier, relaxed about when you pay. Not chased off. Pitches very well drained and 2 water taps and 16 amps supply. Plenty of space so no van "on top" of another . No Owner / warden constantly on pitch checking up so very relaxed atmosphere. No showers, but there is a very acceptable toilet / wash room . And all for £10 per night. Easy commute to Ramsgate, Margate and Broadstairs, all about 3 miles. Westwood Cross shopping centre about 1/2 mile with all the restaurants you could ask for. Excellent site, highly recommended. Booked for next year already, cant wait. Thanks Rex, great little site.

Toilet facilities leave very much to be desired

Toilet facilities are very close to disgusting. Not clean although there is hot water & soap for hand washing. A case of a 'quick in & out'. Barely serve the purpose.

Weekend stay.

Just back today from a long weekend staying at Lydden Farm. Had a fabulous time there with no issues about the site. A real gem for us. Clean any tidy site, toilet was clean, site had plenty of space. Plenty of dog walks around this site with 2.5 mile walk to the beech. Be mindful how you approach this site from along Manston rd. It is single lane in parts from Manston airfield. Recommend coming in from west cross end on Manston rd. Thankyou for a lovely weekend Mr & Mrs Goodban. 5*****. Ian Putman.

Very quiet site

small site very quiet, close to Margate, Ramsgate. Not a bad site in any way only problem was over the 2 weeks stay the campsite lost electric 3 times, 2 of these being very short span of time the third being for 6 hours, seems the trip switch may be up at the site owners house giving campers no access to re-tripping when owners are out for the evening.
