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. Made famous by the masterpiece of literature The Canterbury Tales, the city offers ancient landmarks, a wealth of shops and numerous delightful pubs and restaurants. Food lovers can enjoy the annual Canterbury food festival, taking place in September. The caravan site is also a treat for nature lovers - there are many walks along the excellent system of footpaths in the area. The site is also in a great location for those with an interest in the National Trust and English Heritage, with several properties and sites nearby. With buses departing just outside the site and frequent departures, the attractive towns of Folkestone and Dover are virtually on your doorstep. Local shops and a convenience store can also be found close by to the site.

Disappointed with this site

Black Horse Farm Caravan Club Site
We stayed here for our main summer holiday from end of August until 12th September, 14 nights in total. The site location is absolutely great and very easy to find and get to from the motorways. Folkestone is just down the road with buses running like clock work directly outside the site entrance. The female warden who checked us in wasn't very welcoming or friendly. I met her a few times afterwards, greeted her to be polite but she never responded back. My main niggle is the lower toilet block is still out of action. Reading some of the other reviews it seems like they have been out of action a long time. The club needs to get a move on and get them sorted. The only toilet that works is the disabled one in the lower block. I asked to be near a toilet block due to my mobility issues. I was placed down near the lower disabled block, so were all the other disabled people. We had 5/6 other caravaners using the one toilet and it got dirty rather quickly. The water kept going cold half way through a shower in the lower disabled toilet block. I reported it to a another female warden but she didn't seem bothered about it, she gave me a sob story about the boiler.filling with cold water. She then told me you can always walk up to the top block and use that one if the water goes cold down here. I was shocked by her response. The pitches were mostly covered in weed, the gravel off the pitches are all over the roads they never got brushed back on the pitch. The site is in desperate need of a revamp. This is our 4th year caravaning and luckily we have had the pleasure of visiting quite a lot of club sites. Most of the sites we have been to are well kept and beautiful but sadly black horse farm site isn't one of them beautiful well kept sites. Sorry to be so negative but this is my opinion of the black horse farm site.

Very convenient for channel crossings but avoid pitches by the main road

Black Horse Farm Caravan Club Site
Stayed for one night prior to taking the Eurotunnel in the morning. Site is the perfect location for that purpose, and everything was clean and tidy. Arrived a little later than expected due to M25 traffic, but received a call beforehand so cant fault the helpful, friendly wardens. We were on pitch 11 which is right next to Canterbury Road (literally the other side of the hedge), and be prepared if you are in that area - as it is noisy. The traffic calmed down towards midnight, but was noisy again from the early hours with trucks and heavy traffic. Very disturbed nights sleep, but otherwise good. Probably much better at the other end of the site.

I use this site frequently for family visits. Last visited over the August Bank Holiday and was disappointed to hear at 8.55 hedge cutting in the ferry pitch area. I don't think that this particular hedge needed cutting down at that particular time. I appreciate that the wardens have to maintain standards and they are always so friendly and helpful. Please remember that this is our holiday and to have the bank holiday monday disturbed so early was incredulous. This noise became a discussion point with other campers who were disturbed. I know some people believe that my observations maybe over the top but we are asked to keep noise levels at a satisfactory level and to respect other campers, please can the wardens do the same.

Great location

Black Horse Farm Caravan Club Site
Great location easy access to bus route going to Canterbury and Hythe. The staff were friendly and helpful. The toilets and showers desperately need an update they were cleaned regularly and the water was hot so no real complaint. The pitches are well spaced and have plenty of room. We hope to return soon.
