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.

Multi re-visit

This is our umpteenth visit and as always the site facilities are top notch. We find that the reported noise is back-ground noise and not an intrusion when the caravan door is closed. We often note the passing Eurostar trains in the distant. The main purpose for our many returns is that one of our sons lives in Maidstone but use the this site if visiting Kent for holidays etc. This time a nice touch when booking in, the site staff (are they still called Wardens) introduced themselves. I alway like to known to whom I’m talking to!

Great Site and Great Wardens

This site is fairly compact which means every pitch is close to a service point and not too far from the shower block. The loos and showers were always clean whatever the time of day. The Wardens were great, friendly and so helpful with regard to telling me about places worth visiting and any discounts that could be applied for, such as Leeds Castle. The position is good, next to the motorway means that many places are within easy reach, while there I visited Dover Castle to the East, Charles Darwins House to the West and Battle to the South.

Great site.

This site is up to the usual standard expected of a Caravan Club site... Well maintained and very clean and the wardens were friendly and helpful. Well placed for visiting just about everywhere in Kent.. we went to Dover Castle, Margate, Battle and Chatham to name but a few. It can be quite noisy at night due to traffic, but then it is very close to the M20 and we did get used to it. We would definitely use this site again if we ever visit Kent again.

Bearsted Transient Site

Stayed at this site on the way "up North" from the Eurotunnel Crossing, the site is fairly small and facilities wise its up to the typically excellent club standards, we had booked online a site suitable for our outfit a 7.5 m long motorhome without awning for one night, we were told which site and how to park on the pitch. Found the site pretty transient and soul less but it did serve its purpose. Half the dog walk was out of action due to recent inclement weather but the half that was functional was pretty poor and dirty, dog owners need to be more responsible and possibly site management need to do more in enforcing and if necessary unfortunately cleaning up.

Site on a flight path along side busy main A road

Usual lines of vans . Open site no shade. But the noise was shocking. Under a flight path with planes coming and going all day and late into the night. Along side busy main road into maidstuso traffic noise 24/7. Horrible bland site . All about what caravaning shouldn’t be like . No privacy what so ever. People walking back and forth looking in your Windiws. Very very exsoensive considering the noise we’ve had to endure .
