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.

Geocaching Trip

Stayed for 3 nights that we only booked on the day and the friendly staff sorted a pitch out for us no problem. Did not use the toilet block due to the current situation. We go out Geocaching and in doing this went around the area on our bikes, we liked the village green area of Bearsted .No real problem with the traffic noise, yes you hear it but not too bad . Getting in out the site on bikes can be a small problem due to traffic speed at the entrance.

Very Convenient

Like many of the other reviewers we stay here to visit family. It is an easy location to reach. The site is clean and tidy and the staff welcoming and friendly. Because of some lovely weather and the boom due to Covid 19 it was very busy even outside the main holiday period. The site is, as has been said, near a main road and a motorway. I am an extremely poor sleeper and the noise did not keep me awake. It did vary so I suppose wind direction had an influence. We were a bit concerned at the entrance or, more correctly, the exit being on a bend. This was not helped by over growth of hedges near the entrance which made exiting the site a little hairy!

Very peaceful and clean site

We arrived on a Friday evening in September for the weekend. The checkin was very friendly and welcoming. The site was very neat and tidy and the facilities were spotlessly clean the whole weekend. They have the band system in place for the facilities, limiting it to 2 people which I thought was very good. The wardens were really friendly. This site is not too far from home so great for us to have many short breaks in the future. It is very peaceful and relaxing. You can hear some traffic from the A20 but it wasn't disturbing to us. There is a small playground but it is shut this year due to covid so not really anything here for children at the moment. This site was a quiet relaxing break which we loved and we will definitely return.

Convenient location.

My wife and I have just spent a week at this site from 4th September which it seems coincided with the previous reviewer. I am happy say that our experience was somewhat different although I do agree that there was a lot of traffic noise from the A20 bordering the site and at night a general background hum from the M20 a little further distant but this is perhaps to be expected Based on its location. The noise from the adjacent property where ground works of some sort were underway was indeed unfortunate if you were unlucky enough to be at that end of the site but the blame cannot be laid at the door of the Club! We received a warm welcome from the wardens upon arrival and a wave as they went about their daily duties. We were on a fully serviced pitch utilising our own facilities and did not use the toilet/shower blocks so I am unable to comment on them other than to say that full Corvid regulations were being observed. I would agree that the provision of only one chemical disposal point seems inadequate and I was surprised that one was not incorporated in the toilet/shower block. The site’s location makes for ease of access from major routes and Is convenient for touring this area of Kent and its many attractions.

Disappointed Member

Arrived on site Friday 4th September 2020, was given complete freedom of where to pitch (which was good), but was given no advice as to where there were problems with acorns and debris falling from trees, which resulted with us having to replace our roof window. as per debris falling on caravan roof. the fact that only 2 people were allowed into the toilet/shower block at any one time was to say the least unreasonable as per the size of the building, and the fact that the cost of staying at the site was not reduced in any way. We found ourselves walking from one end of the site to the to the toilet/shower block to find it unable to use because it was constantly in use. We also found noise levels high and unexceptable being unable to hear the tv as the work going on in the next field starting at 7.30am every morning going on till late at night. would not recommend this site at present time as per covid19. Also fresh water and toilet waste points are next to each other only in one location. very unhappy with site, and also being a member of the Caravan and motorhome Club for 10+ years we will not be returning to this site.
