Why stay here ...

Set in the heart of farming country in the Kentish village of Densole on the Downs, Black Horse Farm Club Site offers a quiet and relaxed country getaway. For families wishing to visit the many interesting local attractions of this lovely area, this Kent caravanning and motorhome park will not disappoint.

Now with an additional 15-20 hard standing pitches and some new serviced pitches Black Horse Farm Club Site places you within easy reach of the historic city of Canterbury.

January 2020 Mid Week Treat

Just returned today from a few days away in our Motorhome at this excellent site. We received a very warm welcome from the reception staff. Site Facilities were spotlessly clean (We even saw the dustbins being washed!) and the shower block was very well heated. And even better (for us) the site is on the 16Gold bus route, towards Hythe/Folkestone or Canterbury, with stops just a few metres away from the entrance. Such an easy outing for us and will definitely return.

Excellent site

First class site made even better by the very friendly and helpful staff. The whole site is immaculate and the facilities are clean and well kept. Great dog walking both on and off site. The superb No 16 bus service makes travel to both Canterbury and Folkestone much easier than driving and parking. There is a friendly well stocked convenience store across the road and The Black Horse pub is friendly as well as serving excellent food. We thoroughly recommend this site.

Nice site with good facilities

Nice site, with info centre, and reception did 'drinks & nibbles' for New Year. No shop - but general stores just opposite. Facilities pretty good, especially at far end of site. Good hard standing pitches. Black Horse pub in Densole, nicely restored old pub. General stores and off licence opposite site. Good walks across fields and around Reinden Woods. Walks past Ridge Fm get a bit scrappy and paths lost.

Nice quiet stay between Xmas and New Year

Stayed for two nights between Xmas and New Year, on a short tour of the Kent coastline; our first stay on a CAMC site!

Very well located for visiting Dover Castle (a great day out, and no queues in low season!) and nearby coastal towns/beaches. The site is great, facilities excellent and very clean, as expected. The showers in particular were very nice - proper showers, not push buttons! The site was quiet due to the time of year but pitches well spaced and level.

Did note that the light levels overnight are quite high, with site roads being lit and every hookup point having a light on top which burned all night. This may be standard for CAMC sites but feels a bit wasteful (I doubt that any CAMC member won't have at least one torch!). Good blackout blinds are essential if you like to sleep in the dark. A very minor point for a great site though.

Very quiet in November!

We stayed on this site in November, so it was very quiet with very little traffic of any sort. The facilities (toilet blocks/showers etc) were up to the usual Club standard and its only a short walk from any pitch to one block or the other. The nearby garden centre has a restaurant which offers good value food, even 2 for 1 on weekday breakfasts. Well worth a try. Be warned that there is no Mobile phone coverage on the Three Network on this site. It’s not poor, it is non-existent. Because of this I braved the site wifi. This was just as unhappy an experience as it was 5 years ago when I first tried to use it at a Club site. If this is a “gold” wifi site then I hate to think how bad a “bronze” site is.
