Why stay here ...

Grass, slightly slopping site with excellent drainage and 2 hardstanding areas. Well established, quiet and secluded but in the village with trains and buses nearby, lots of footpaths, 2 shops and a pub with good food.

Equidistant between M2 and M20 so convenient for trips to historic towns, Chatham Dockyard, Rochester Castle and Cathedral, Dickens country, NT sites and 3 RSPB reservers.

Our poultry are now in a separate enclosure, providing eggs for breakfast.

Lots of footpaths for walking your dogs, 2 shops including a post office, a pub with very good food and a farm shop.

Nice peaceful site

Manor Farm
A nice peaceful site on the edge of the village, with immediate access out to footpaths alongside the River Medway, into the village, and also very handy access to the station. The grassed area of the site is a decent size, but on a bit of a slope so levelling blocks are required, but there is also a level section on hard-standing. One very minor suggestion would be to provide bins/recycling down by the outbuildings on the site, rather than having to go into the owner's garden. Obviously not really an issue, but it just felt a little intrusive to have to dispose of our rubbish in the very neat and well-tended garden right by the house!

Ideal location for Chatham Dockyard and the Medway towns

Manor Farm
We initially booked this site for 3 nights, but managed to book an arrival a day early. The entrance to the site is easily missed so it is advisable to have the directions to hand as we overshot the turn off down the lane first time round. The main road through the village leading to the CL can be tight as well due lots of on-street parking to contend with depending on time of arrival. Fortunately we drove through with no problems. We had stayed at the site many years ago and have to say we noticed a vast improvement in that there were no ducks/geese/chickens running around anymore - they all had their own fenced off enclosure, so no more avoiding the birds and indeed their droppings! Being in a motorhome we drove round a few times trying to find a level-ish area to pitch ourselves. In the end we opted to go just round the corner from the black waste area - and was later told by the owner it was probably the best place to pitch. The grass itself was very well kept - as was the owner's garden (where we had to go to post our payment and deposit our rubbish). The site is ideally situated to visit the Medway towns of Rochester and Chatham. We cycled to Rochester intending to visit the castle, but it was closed to the public due to a music festival (if you can call what we heard music) - so we cycled further afield and visited Upnor Castle instead, before cycling back to Rochester and having a look round the town and the cathedral. The weekend was spent at Chatham Dockyard's Salute to the 40s. We drove the motorhome in both days and had absolutely no trouble parking. Speaking to the owner he was really interested in our 1940s ventures and told us how he and his wife regularly visited Whitby for their Gothic weekends - so we recommended to him the Steampunk Festival in Lincoln.

What a beautiful peaceful site

Manor Farm
We finally returned to this lovely site after 18months of being housebound with illness and then lockdown - what a joy. It was just as we remembered, the greenery, the bus enthusiasts, the poultry, the glorious peace and quiet, just a gem. We only stayed for one night before going to our newly re-opened dance club, but it was an instant 're-boost' of happiness and relaxation! Can't recommend it highly enough. Thank you Pat , Mike & Maggie

Haven after Lock Down

Manor Farm
We chose this site because we could visit our London based children and grandchildren who we hadn't seen since Christmas. (We live 150 miles from them in Shropshire). We were delighted that visitors were allowed and they all came to the site and enjoyed the space on the site. The owners were most welcoming and helpful. They had made it Covid safe and because of the space on the site we felt safe and comfortable. They keep poultry and the eggs we purchased, from the owners were simply delicious. We thoroughly recommend this site for the good access form the motor way system, the warm welcoming friendly owners, the peacefulness and the space giving you a good distance from other caravans and motor homes. We will use it again in the future.
