Why stay here ...

Elegantly sloping towards open farmland, Bearsted Club Site offers the tranquillity of these open fields, one of which is a horse paddock where equine enthusiasts can enjoy the proximity of these beautiful creatures.

Bearsted Club Site is conveniently located to explore the beautiful countryside of Kent, often termed The Garden of England for its lovely appeal. Nature lovers will find hours of pleasure exploring this famous English countryside whilst the caravan park also gives you the opportunity to absorb the ambience of days gone by at the nearby Leeds Castle. For shopping, local treats and fun family attractions, the historic town of Maidstone is a short distance away and slightly further along the North Kent coastline the seaside towns of Whitstable and Margate never fail to charm. If golf or fishing is what you most enjoy then this Kent caravanning site is ideal, with a beautiful golf course just down the road and Majors fishing lake about a mile away you won't be disappointed. You will also find a variety of National Trust properties within easy reach. A convenient bus stop is located at the site entrance for access to all these attractions. Nearby local amenities include several pubs, a petrol station and supermarket.

Great site great wardens but…

Bearsted Caravan Club Site
Spent 3 days in glorious weather here. The site is immaculate with spacious flat pitches. The wardens were friendly and helpful and prepared to put off time with members. The toilet facilities were of the usual high standards so in terms of the site and the staff I have nothing at all negative to say. However be warned the building site adjacent to the site is a nightmare!! The noise levels go way beyond what anyone would be able to put up with. Warning horns, hammering, riveting guns and workies shouting at each other starts 07.30 am and goes on until 5pm. Road noise and the like doesn’t bother me normally but this was just unbearable. Other members left early because of this but we stuck it out. We booked a year in advance so at that time there was no advance warning on the club website. Had we been informed post booking about this issue we may have reconsidered.

Fab site for Diggerland visit!

Bearsted Caravan Club Site
Great weekend and fab welcome from the warden who couldn’t be more helpful all weekend, as we stayed 2 nights with 2 caravans, ours and daughter and Son-in-Law and their three boys, 5,8 and 10. Took the grandchildren to nearby Diggerland and this site was the perfect place to stay! Thanks so much for going above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful stay! We will be back and highly recommend this amazingly kept gem! As it was a weekend the building site nearby didn’t cause any issues at all. A perfect weekend!

A well kept site, the facilities clenliness was exceptional, the wardens were cheerful, helpful and so friendly. So overall a good site to stay and relax. AY Member that stayed 11.07.21 till 16.07.21. ( I have only just managed to navigate around the club members site and find the review page). Not an easy task.

A Big Thank You to the wardens. Great site excellent in all respects,

Bearsted Caravan Club Site
I was unfortunate to witness abuse levelled at the warden during a time when the toilets were shut for cleaning. The member was not happy that the warden wouldn't open them, which was followed with foul insults bawled at the warden by the member. We have rules which we follow and recognize the need for cleanliness in the current climate with covid. Our wardens do a brilliant job and should be treated with respect and not pilloried by any member. Due to the rain my motorhome got stuck in a waterlogged grass patch, the warden went out of his way to assist and get me out of the mire, for which I am very grateful. I received great advice and help for the warden both at Bearsted and when he was at the Ferry Meadows site. In my view the site is well run and the warden first class. Thankyou.

Great Site

Bearsted Caravan Club Site
We stayed there from 1st July to 10th July. A really good welcome from the Wardens. The grounds were kept immaculate. The effort the warden has put in with the flowers at the reception is fantastic. The facilities were kept extremely clean and safe. There is some background noise from the roads, but that did not affect us. We love this site, as it is good for touring from to see Kent. Leeds Castle is very near and you can walk to it. There is a Park and Ride a sort distance away to visit Maidstone for any shopping. There are several pubs in the area for good food. We would certainly recommend it for a good time.

Site information

With our campsites busier than ever right now, we'd really appreciate your support with a few things to help everyone have a safe and enjoyable summer. Please be mindful of site arrival times (as they do vary), keep children and pets close by and within sight, and ensure you keep your speed below 5mph. Thank you!

All internal shared facility areas, including toilet and shower blocks, wash up areas, laundry rooms, drying rooms and information rooms will be fully open, however in order to continue to protect our staff, we will still be requiring social distancing, and the wearing of face coverings in our reception areas for the time being.

Remember, you only pay 5% VAT until 30 September 2021, then 12.5% VAT from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022 on Club campsite prices! All you need to do is book your holiday as normal, and the discount will be applied to the appropriate rate when you pay on site.

Please Note: There is ongoing building work neighboring the site until August and there maybe some noise disruption affecting those staying on site.
