Why stay here ...

New Barns Farm Caravan Site is off the road down a small road and is quiet, flat and secure. Each caravan has electric hook ups. Water is available and the site offers a toilet block with two toilets, three washbasins and a shower.

Paddock Wood is an ideal base to travel around the local area. We have a variety of National Trust properties within easy reach. The Spa town of Tunbridge Wells is only a 15 minute drive and a great place for restaurants and shopping.

There is the world famous church with Marc Chagall windows, 7 minutes away at Tudely/Five Oak Green - beautiful when the sun is setting.

We have several old pubs within a ten minute drive to sample local produce and ales. There are fishing lakes close by and one in our lane. Bewl Bridge reservoir with its renowned trout fishing and walks is no more than 15 minutes away and of course there are the Beaches of Camber or Hastings around 30 miles away. Then of course there is a fast train to London which is a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive away.

Suggested places to visit: Sissinghurst Castle, Scotney Castle, Hever Castle, Item Moat and Knole Castle and Deer Park.

Pubs to visit: Chequers at Laddingford, Woolpack at Benover, Bush, Blackbird & Thrush at East Peckham, The Swan at West Peckham and the Tickled Trout - Yalding.

new barn farm review

We have spent another great weekend and can highly recommend if you are looking for a quiet well kept site with plenty of walks . Our hosts made us very welcome as usual and we had a great weekend for family and a bbq. An added amenity of a toilet and shower are most welcome. We have been going here for 2 years and are never disappointed.

Run down but peaceful

Arrived to find that the field was empty, so had the pick of pitches. Electric and water available. However, the grass had not been cut for ages. The toilets and showers were not clean, although worked fine. The chemical disposal point was totally full and blocked and did not smell good. The owners dogs were able to roam on the field, which was fine, it is their home. However, the dogs messed in the field and this was not cleared up. Disappointed overall, especially as the site had received 5 star reviews overall on the clubs review page.

Comment from the Club:

Many thanks for your review. The CL owner has been in touch as he was very sorry to read that you did not enjoy the site. He was actually unwell towards the end of last year however the site is now being maintained to the normal high standards.

Some upgrades required

Access from the B2160 along Lucks Lane is not encouraging - the lane is narrow, bumpy and surprisingly busy. The turn into the site again does not give a good impression, leading past some very shabby old industrial/agricultural buildings. The CL field itself is quite spacious with marked pitches and a row of hook-up bollards. There is a Portacabin containing a shower, basins and wc's which is adequate but not luxurious. Curiously I could not find any chemical toilet emptying point other than in the wc's. A tap for rinsing is outside the portacabin. However, I have seen worse. David, the owner, explained that he had been ill and appologised the facilities were not up to usual standards. The grass on the site was a bit longer than ideal, meaning wet feet. An interesting feature of the site was that a pair of Little Owls nest/roost in the trees nearby. We used the site as a base to visit several NT properties - Old Soar Barn, Ightham Mote, Knole and Chartwell. Had we had longer there were numerous other properties we could have easily visited from our base at New Barns. Overall, other than the wonderful NT places, we found the towns and villages in this part of Kent rather unattractive and lacking any scenic charm, but this is a very subjective view.

BASIC CL - WOULD RETURN

Stayed in March. Suited our needs perfectly we are out and about during the day, this was a good quiet place to pitch up at nights. Toilet and shower were fine - always a bonus on a CL. Pitches are well marked and not crowded. Had no contact with owner, we arrived and chose an empty pitch. Had to actively find the owner to pay! Slight issue with owners dogs in the field, as our dog is not over-friendly when on the lead, however it is their home, we just had to keep a lookout for them! Despite the small issues I would stay here again. Great place for visiting some lovely National Trust properties.
