Why stay here ...

Hole Farm Caravan Site has very easy access, with spacious pitches on a 'just off level' site. There are no extra charges for anything! All electirc 'hook ups' are 16 amp.

Our site is a 20 minute walk from the beautiful village of Appledore, where you can find a friendly pub, a well stocked shop, hairdressers and antique shop.

A 5 minute drive to the train station where there is free parking, running an hourly service to Ashford, Rye and Hastings. There are lovely dog walks in the nearby woods or along the Royal Military Canal. Ther sunsets from the site (as you can see from the picture) are out of this world.

Buzzards and barn owls are often seen on this working farm. Cuckoos are always heard in the spring and sometimes even a nightingale! Rye Harbour Nature Reserve - a 20 minute drive away, offers further bird watching and dog walks.

The historic market towns of Rye & Tenterden are closeby (approximately 6 miles), both having independent shops on the high street and with markets on Thursdays and Fridays.

Rye has its own independent cinema, KINO and Tenterden boasts a fully working steam railway.

National Trust properties nearby include Smallhythe Place, Bodiam and Sissinghurst Castles.

Quiet and secluded with beautiful views

Hole Farm
This little site is just off a very quiet country lane with peaceful views across the rolling Kent countryside. The pitches are well organised with access to the two hardstandings clearly marked. The owners are very friendly and booking by telephone was simple and straightforward. Dunegess, which we visited in between our two overnights, is just a 20 minute drive away, yet it seems a world apart from the rest of the country. We look forward to coming back to this site in the summer when we can just sit and relax outside and enjoy this beautuful tranquil location.

Lovely little CL.

Hole Farm
Second time here. Jan 2022. Only ones here until today. Easy access to Rye. Great fish and chips at Mariano’s in Rye. Eat in or takeout every day. Lots of history in Rye and walks too out at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve. Tenterden not far. Interesting independent shops and the steam railway too. Visited the Black Lion in Appledore. A short walk (20mins) to it so able to have a beer. Footpaths most of the way but a bit on road but was ok with a little care. Very pleasant atmosphere and excellent food at reasonable prices. Also enjoyed the local cider made just up the road and called Nightingales. Spectacular sunsets from field. Love it here. Beautiful scenery all around and we’ll be back.

Lovely peaceful site

Hole Farm
Lovely peaceful site with plenty of space between pitches, next to a field of sheep and with beautiful sunsets over the Kent countryside. For this price on a CL there are of course no toilet or shower. Just be aware that dog walking is on the roadside with no footpath which, while not busy, is quite fast.

Our happy place!

Hole Farm
Hole Farm is a wonderful place to escape to. It’s beautiful, tranquil and exactly what we needed in the middle of a busy month. The site is well maintained and ‘green’ with food waste boxes provided as well as green and black waste bags. The village is a 30 minute walk away and treats await - tea shop, pub with wholesome food and interesting antiques. Lots of great walks nearby too. Or you could stay put and enjoy the sheep, the sunsets and the owls. We will be going more regularly now it’s all permitted again. Our three days felt like a week. Glorious.
