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.

Excellent week

Had an excellent week on the site. Plenty to see in the area, visited National Trust and English Heritage sites, walked along the coastal paths and promenades. Plenty to see in the area and took a day trip to France. Well done to the wardens for the excellent facilities and for being so helpful when our fridge stopped working half way through the holiday.

Lovely site very clean

We stayed here on the last leg on our two week holiday. It was very tidy, clean and welcoming . Staff were friendly . Liked the fact that there was an enclosed dog walk where they could run free. Site was quiet but being near end of September not many families. We were split for choice in the local area of where to visit. We went to Dover Castle which was amazing and the underground tunnels tour is a must if you visit. We have a motorhome and parking was fine at the Castle . We then went to the White Cliffs of Dover and the views were amazing and we could even see France as it was a clear day. We had planned to go to Deal Castle and the Hornby Experience but due to illness had to leave a day early. Will be coming back to this site as it’s location is excellent for site seeing. There were a lot of overnight caravans and motorhomes etc due to location near Dover but we were not affected by people’s earlier departure for ferries as previous reviewers have commented .

Good site for short stays and crossings

Very tidy and well laid out level site. Lots of space, grounds and facilities well kept. I used a tent pitch (right by one toiled block) which was great. However, the welcome on site was not as normal. I was staying just the one night, with a one-man text, but I seemed to be doubted about my booking (of weeks earlier) and whether I was actually a member etc and showing my card did not seem to help. I did say that I usually have a caravan in tow, but on this occasion was picking up family members from a boat, hence one night and the tent. Many units on site were from the continent so it was great to talk to a few of them. I noticed most new/newish caravans and motorhomes were from the UK, whereas the older (up to 50 years) were from overseas. (Perhaps due to warmer/drier climate?) Great little shop across the road with great owner. Lucky for me they did hot drinks too (freshly made) since I did not want to take a cooker/kettle etc. Lots of other hot/cold food too including sandwiches which the warden said that the shop did not do. Pub just 100m away I would stay again (day or two) if a need to travel to France etc or if touring the region.

Great location.

We stayed here for a week in early September and really enjoyed the area. There’s plenty to do and see all within 30 minutes drive. The site itself has a high turnover of customers due to its convenience for Dover so there can quite a bit of on site traffic around 6.00am. There weren’t too many pitches available so we ended up underneath some trees which makes the pitch a bit dark and shady. Great in a heat wave but not so good in late summer. Perhaps some of the trees should be removed to provide a bit more light? The shower facilities were always clean and up to the usual club standards. Perhaps the easiest access to any site I’ve yet to visit, no narrow lanes to negotiate!
