Why stay here ...

LOW 10% refundable deposit plus FREE cancellations and FREE amendments*

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.

Highly recommended

Bearsted Club Campsite
We stayed at Bearsted in May 2024 during the final week of a 3 week adventure. It was our first time in Kent and this site certainly did not disappoint. The wardens, Andy and Troy, are so attentive, courteous and hardworking, nothing is too much trouble for them. The site and all facilities are very tidy and well kept. The wardens make all their guests feel welcome, not just on arrival but throughout their stay, always nodding and waving when a guest walks past, even when chatting to someone else. The site is very colourful with flowers and a little herb garden, as well as solar lights around reception and lights in the trees on the site. It is within very easy reach of the M20 and the information room has a good display of local attractions. The atmosphere was lovely, with a seating area outside reception. The shop is well stocked and there are food vans (pizza, fish and chips) on certain evenings. The wardens are constantly looking to improve the site in some way and are very creative. They certainly go "above and beyond" and put the guests first. There is inevitably traffic noise, but this didn't particularly keep us awake once we got used to it. A walk / drive into Bearsted village (less than 2 miles) is well worth it, with The Oak on the Green pub very lively on a weekend and a cricket pitch - a quintessential village, in fact. There is so much to do, using this site as a base - you really can't go wrong here.

Fantastic little gem!!!

Bearsted Club Campsite
Wow!! What a find. Before you even enter reception the outside area is so bright, vibrant and welcoming, and then reception. Probably the best stocked shop we have ever been in, which was great for us because we had just arrived off the tunnel so needed provisions. We were welcomed by Andy who couldn't have been more friendly. Smooth check in, and he gave us great advice on choosing a pitch. When we returned to get our barrier card we noticed the fabulous “herb your shelf” what a great idea! Andy and Troy keep the facilities immaculate and the site is wonderful. We cannot wait to return, and would highly recommend Bearsted to anyone. The pizza van on a Saturday was also excellent.

A really warm welcome

Bearsted Club Campsite
A really warm welcome by Andy. He couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful. Excellent, spotlessly clean facilities. Both Andy and Troy were very welcoming and so friendly. They both work so hard to make the site attractive and kept clean and tidy. They always took the time to talk or say hello and have worked hard to make the site attractive and welcoming. We were fortunate to get pitch number one, close to the facilities. Having said that, all of the pitches are large and of a high standard.

Vastly Improved Site with peaceful ambience.

Bearsted Club Campsite
Peaceful and very well presented site run by Troy and his team.The site was neat and tidy and I feel it is much better when the centre grass section isn't being used,but of course this means less pitches.It is a fairly small site with hard standings around a square,the site team are in the process of making a biodiversity border between the hard standing pitches which back onto the grass pitches. There are walks to Leeds Castle probably a couple of miles,but note,these footpaths does not cover any access to the castle and any attractions,with a nice pub in Leeds village,and another walk to a country park called the Bearsted Woodland trust,but you are walking on the busy A20. Maidstone town centre is a couple of miles out of the site,there is a bus stop as well for people who do not want to drive. All in all we had a very pleasant stay.

Another peaceful stay

Bearsted Club Campsite
We couldn't rate this site more highly. Andy and Troy make you feel welcome and instantly leap into action if you need their help with anything. The site is picturesque with flowers and plants, the pitches are very well kept and the toilet blocks spotless. We stay here regularly and are never disappointed. it has a friendly and relaxing atmosphere; we will definitely be back soon.
