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, the caravan 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.

Not Your Normal Site but Great at What It Provides

Firstly, I want to emphasise the reception staff, site facilities; although, now getting a little tired, overall maintenance and appearance of the site were exactly what we know and love about C&MC Club sites; they are to a high standard. The site dog walk, excellent local pub just across the road and the abundance of things to do in the local area all add to the appeal of the site. However; this site, and its proximity to the channel ports gives it a unique role, as an overnight transit facility to those members going to and from Europe. Knowing very little about the site but wanting to explore the area we booked a weeks break in early Sept. On arrival it was recommended that we pitch in the “quiet” area of the site by the lower facilities block, which we did. Even so, the departure of members to catch early channel crossings, who had parked in adjacent pitches, meant an amount of unwelcome noise and activity from around 05.00 onwards. No one deliberately made excessive noise and I do believe all tried to consider other members, but its just not possible to pack-up, start the vehicle engine and get away silently so for me a holiday lay-in was out of the question. So, would we stay for a week again – “unlikely”, would we use the site before a channel crossing – “most definitely”.

1st visit

First time we have used the site prior to catching the ferry. A great location and very friendly welcome. The facilities are excellent and although people had left very early there was no noise. We will definitely use this site again

Great ferry pitch

Stayed here for one night on a ferry pitch. We were arriving late after the reception was closed so phoned ahead for access details etc. Upon arrival collected pitch details and accessed our pitch without issue. Toilet and shower facilities are up to the usual CAMC standards (e.g. very good). Just a quick word about the lady on reception (sorry didn't get your name). This was the first time we'd used a ferry pitch and with arriving late was a little apprehensive. I phoned a few times prior to our arrival and always had my concerns / questions addressed in a helpful manner, thank you. Would definitely recommend this site.

Excellent Site

Stayed here for 4 nights. Arrival was easy and staff very friendly. Great location with the added bonus of Spitfires flying over regularly. Clean and well organised. Excellent dog walk and plenty of footpaths around if required. Facilities looking a little tired in places but still always clean. Staff were excellent. Cheerful, friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

One night ferry site

Stayed here 31/07/19 on a ferry pitch. Excellent welcome from the staff, very friendly. Even though the site has been renovated in recent years the toilet/shower facilities are showing signs of wear.The site is obviously very busy. I can recommend the chippy in Hawkinge, (Hawkinge Fish bar). If you book on a ferry pitch you can't expect peace and quiet but in any event we slept well until we left for an early ferry. As a comment and not a complaint using the ferry pitches is like being on a hardstanding car park but I wouldn't expect any difference and the easy access to the ferries and tunnel obviously make the ferry pitches very popular.
