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.

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.

A little Gem

Hole Farm
This was our 2nd stay at Hole Farm, Fri 4th- mon 7th October 2019. Introduced our friends to this beautiful, peaceful quiet site. The sunsets are amazing. We will definitely be returning, charming setting and charming owners. Melsey 60

Perfect for exploring Romney Marshes

Hole Farm
This CL is perfectly located to walk and cycle in the area, the Marshes are full of wildlife and there are loads of footpaths and quiet lanes. This CL reminded us about why we choose the quiet sites, it was so peaceful, West facing for fabulous sunsets and such a treat to stay on this farming land, being so close to nature, the tawny owls all around when the light fades - fantastic! The Ferry Inn and the Black Lion pubs are within easy reach, you can enjoy a pint in the evening sunshine at both. The nature reserve at Rye is stunning, put your boots on and find Camber Castle, it can only be reached by foot or cycling, well worth it - it’s only open once a month but the views and setting are worth it anyway.

Precisely What a CL Should Be

Hole Farm
We have stayed here a few times now. The site has plenty of room for five outfits, including two all-weather pitches and is situated a few hundred yards from the farmhouse. A slight slope up from front to back, but levelling blocks are not always necessary. The main aspect is to the west, with delightful sunsets and the east boundary is mature trees. Good water pressure, plus cesspool disposal with a separate hose for washing down. Rubbish bins are in the small building at the site entrance. The location is prime for Romney Marsh and the higher levels overlooking it and the quiet spots of the Royal Military Canal are but a short drive away. The owners are working farmers and are invariably busy. The farmhouse is the bungalow down Moor Lane. I have to say that as a CL Hole Farm has everything that a caravan owner might expect in terms of facilities and freedom from military rules. The fact that some members have to have special facilities for their units is perhaps best catered for on a Club site, rather than a typical CL, although I have seen others who get round their on-board problems by other means - or carry a hosereel with them. The local shop is about 20 minutes' walk away towards Appledore.
