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.

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

A warm and friendly place for our first ever caravan trip!

This was my first ever visit to a CS after having just picked up our first ever caravan: the idea was to stay for a couple of days just down the road from the dealer to make sure everything was working properly. I want to say that this site was fantastic, due to a combination of an excellent location, peaceful surroundings and an absolutely amazing and welcoming staff. Stephanie gave us a lovely welcome, and Paul actually personally helped me pitch up. His advice, guidance and hands-on help were absolutely indispensable: I am so appreciative! I would not have been able to pitch up nearly as smoothly without him. We have two small children and Steph and Paul were amazing to them. I had read reviews about people mentioning the nearby motorway noise but it wasn't nearly as bad, and we all quickly got used to it. The peaceful ambience and setting also more than made up for it. Also the baby/child bathroom was an unexpected but very welcome plus! We would thoroughly recommend this site, and due to its location we intend to come back several times!

Excellent site

We used this site as a stopover on the way to the Channel Tunnel and it did not disappoint. Friendly and helpful wardens, excellent facilities, well kept and tidy. Location is easy to get to and from M20 in just a few minutes. Some slight road noise but not enough to disturb or be a problem.

Bearsted, again, again & again

We use this site several times a year. It allows to visit our son and family who live about 10 minutes away. As always the site staff are helpful, friendly and obviously hard working as the facilities are clean and well maintained. The current staff, Stephanie and Paul gave us a very warm welcome. Due to Operation Brock on the M20 they kept us upto date with west bound access. During our 4 nights stay we had good weather which at this time year was positive addition. With the entrance to the site being just after a Ben’s on the A20 it can be a bit of a “gamble” pulling out with the caravan at busy times. The speed limit is 60mph and the locals use it to its maximum+. Maybe the club could approach the local road chiefs about extending 40mph limit to before the bend? Only an observation!!

Wonderful staff

You could not ask for better hospitality from a site. Greeting was excellent and the staff members could not have been more helpful in ALL aspects. Very approachable and friendly. Lovely walk to Leeds castle from the site. The layout and facilities on the site are super. Can not fault anything. Highly recommend and will certainly be back. Thank you so much.
