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 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.

Good location for Leeds Castle

We had just bought our motorhome and wanted to try it out before a planned tour of Cornwall. We chose Bearsted so we could visit Leeds Castle, and stayed for two nights. The campsite is clean and well kept, the receptionist was welcoming and facilities are good.

We’re Absolute Beginners

Having bought our new touring van a couple of weeks ago, we decided to be sensible and stay local, Bearsted was perfect. So glad we did, what a great site and everyone was so friendly and helpful. We made friends with our neighbours on all sides and particularly thanked the help to get the awning up. The site is about 2 mins from M20, yes you can hear the motorway and nearby main road, but it’s not in your face and your far enough away to it not being a nuisance. Facilities are clean and tidy and closed for an hour and a half each day to maintain and keep the cleaning regime, which is great. Mains water close by, waste water and grey water easily disposed of. Dog walk small but It’s good enough and then just continue the walk around the site. As mentioned, be careful coming out of the site and turning right, it’s a fast road your pulling on to, the bend isn’t totally blind but just maintain attention. Definitely be back for a get away.....

Surpringly Good

It is a few years since I visited Bearsted and I found it pleasantly good. Site managers approachable.The site access road way had been altered slightly not that it was bad as it is only a smallish site anyway. Pitches are large and I always felt the site looked less crowded when the grass pitches are free in the centre. Everything was clean and tidy around the site, small amount of road noise from nearby M20,but this depends on the wind directions. The biggest drawback to me is turning right out of the site with or without the van as cars do come fast around the bend.

Comfortable

Arriving the site, hosts Paul and Steph made us welcome. We had a choice of excellent pitches and even assisted with a short notice change of our itinerary. The pitch was more than adequate for our 7 mtr camper. Close proximity to local pubs ( under £5 each way) or 30 min walk. Quiet and peaceful. We would recommend this site, ideal for access to Kent showgrounf
