Why stay here ...

At Manor Farm we keep small flocks of ducks, geese and chickens. They are usually free to roam the site during the day. Free range eggs are often available according to season. We welcome your pets, but dogs must please be kept on a lead. Halling village itself is very well served by local amenities. All within 2-300 yards walk from the site. There are two village shops, one including a post office.

Manor Farm - nice site but constant roar of traffic and beware of the goose poo!

I don't know if we were unlucky with the wind direction but all through our 6 night stay there was a constant roar of traffic all day and all night, which despite the lovely weather meant it wasn't pleasant to sit out. My husband had to resort to ear plugs to sleep! The other disappointment was our pitch: when we arrived we were told where to pitch. Unfortunately it was an area frequently used by the geese, ducks and hens. We had to clear the area of goose poo before we could put the awning up. About 10 minutes after we were set up, a caravan from the other side of the field departed. Had we been told they were going we would have waited and set up well away from the goose poo - we were constantly having to clear it during our stay. Directions for getting there are excellent and it was easy to access all local places of interest. Not sure if we would stay again though.

Just spent a week at this site, and had an enjoyable time. Much rain before we arrived and while there, but no trouble with access over the grass. Warm and helpful welcome. No good views but old buses were interesting. Did not need to use the car at all, as within 5 mins walk of bus stop and were able to use buses (free) to reach Rochester, Chatham, Upnor Castle and Tilbury Fort.

Really Lovely CL

We have stayed at Manor Farm several times due to visiting family in the area and also discovering there is so much to do and see here that we've sneeked back to enjoy it all again and even brought friends with their caravan too. The site is within 10 mins from either the M20 or M2 making it ideal if you're on your way to or from France, just be sure to book more than one night as you'll be kicking yourself for not being able to fit everything in. Access to the site is fantastic, very peaceful and really well thought out and the site is very well cared for, the owners are really friendly and welcoming. Fresh eggs are available from the resident ducks, chicken and geese which live in the next field but some came to visit us which is entertaining. Part of the field is sloping, however Mr & Mrs Catchpole know the easiest way to pitch up if you ask but we had no problem, also part of the field is flat, making it ideal for motorhomes and larger units. (we like it at the top of the field for the views over the river) The area is very interesting, Chatham Dockyard, Rochester town, cathederal, castle and riverfront, Gillingham Riverside Park and Strand, Chatham Outlet Centre, Diggerland, Maidstone town and river to mention a few. You can even hop on a train and visit London. There are also good walks direct from the site along the River Medway. Supermarkets are within ten mins, Tesco, Marks and Sparks and Aldi as well as two shops in the village and two pubs. I could go on and on but I think I will finish with this is how a CL should be, cared for, well looked after, lovely owners and a lovely place to weekend or holiday. Definatley one of the best CLs on the network.

Lovely Site

We arrived just after noon, with my brother following in his outfit. We both found the site quite easily with the sat navs, although we all followed the directions in the caravan club book. We both received a very warm welcome from both the owners of the farm. They got us both set up very quickly, even on the damp grass, could be a problem if very wet as quite a slope. Even the geese, chickens, and ducks called round to see us all, i think they were really after a bit of our lunch. The site is lovely with old buses been stored in lockups on site, and a short walk takes you into the village, or along the river. Also of course we booked this area to visit Chatham  docks, and local castles. There is a Fayre & Square called The Old Rectory no more then 5 miles from the site, which was very good and reasonable. Thank you Mr & Mrs Catchpole for a very enjoyable visit, we would love to call again sometime.

Convenient site.

Easy to find but be careful when turning left from roundabout because cars are parked both sides of the road, as you make your way to the traffic lights. You will need leveling blocks. Two shops that you can walk too for everyday items. Not to be missed is Chatham navel dock yard this can take two visits so much to see, pay once and you can make as many visits you like in the year. Once again no notice board giving information as to where the nearest medical services are (hopefully never needed ) or other amenities in the area. This is something we see on so many CL sites.
