Why stay here ...

Elegantly sloping towards open farmland, Bearsted Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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 stay

Bearsted Club Campsite
We had a great four days stay over the weekend. The site and facilities are very well maintained, Alan and Dee were very helpful and run a very good site. We walked our dog from the site to the woodland trust which is a lovely expanse leading to the green for dinner at the pub. If you have transport it’s worth visiting Mote park which has 450 acres to explore. My only comment is a little hedging around the pitches would give a little privacy. We will be back to stay later in the year.

Excellent visit

Bearsted Club Campsite
Our recent visit to this site was excellent. The warden and his wife were more than helpful. The warden even took time out to give us some valuable training tips for our Cocker Spaniel. Would definitely recommend the site.

Not a pleasant welcome

Bearsted Club Campsite
After quite a long journey on the M11, M25 and a busy M20 we arrived 25 minutes early at 12.35 to be greeted with a statements from the warden that face masks are compulsory as he husband has cancer and when I pointed out that wasn’t the case at other sites we had stayed on I was told all the other sites aren’t following the rules. Having stayed on a number of other sites and having read the club web site it requests you wear a mask but it isn’t compulsory. I was then subjected to a lecture on arrivals are after 1pm. Reception was open and I was booked in immediately as the site was extremely quiet yet the warden felt I needed a good dressing down once more. Having stayed her several times on route to France I can recommend it but not the welcome.

not a pleasant reception

Bearsted Club Campsite
we arrived early as the m20 was on lockdown due to dover being closed , this means all traffic on the m20 has to leave the motorway to enable lorries to park up waiting for the road to open up again . so we were 25 minutes early and waiting in the car we were then approached and told the site office is closed and will reopen at 1pm .... the warden then said we have been told to send you away if people turn up early ! he then turned away got in his car and drove off. not the welcome we expected! about 15 minutes later the other warden opened the office and we booked in ... later that afternoon the warden apologized for his abrupt manner but unfortunately this was not enough to entice me to return to this site. we have been to this site many times and have been members for approx. 40 years and i can only say ITS NOT THE CLUB IT WAS. i have asked my auto renew membership to be cancelled and we will be looking at other places to spend our money

Alan and Dee are very helpful. We have our van stored on site and had a few issues with it, namely battery and mover. Alan was more than helpful with assisting. Nice clean site. Great for a getaway. Many thanks Mr Vehicle Assessor!!
