Lovely break in the area

Stayed in October for 8 nights, lots to see and do. Visited Churchills home in Chartwell, Battle of Britain museum in Hawkinge, Dover Castle, White Cliffs, Folkstone and enjoyed the coastal walks. Also took the opportunity for a day trip to Calais via Eurotunnel. Well worth spending time here and the site facilities are the usual high standard for the Club. The Black Horse Inn across the road has now closed down, but we had a lovely meal at the Jackdaw Inn.

More than just a ferry stop-over

We stayed at Black Horse Farm for two nights, one on the way to France and one on the way back. It is literally 15 minutes max to the tunnel, so it is a great place for an overnight kip before setting of across the Channel. The ferry pitches are all near the site entrance so the regular customers don't get disturbed by the early departures. The site staff allocate pitches so, when we arrived, we were told which pitch was ours. When we returned we weren't in any hurry to get away so I phoned the site in advance and asked for a pitch a bit further from the entrance, and the very helpful staff obliged and put us on a very nice pitch near the first service point. The site and the facilities are extremely well kept, the grass was in excellent condition considering the hot summer, and everywhere was really clean and tidy. Coping with so many comings and goings must create a lot of unique problems for the site staff, but they manage the site admirably. Having taken the opportunity to walk around the site it is clearly a really nice place and is worthy of a visit in its own right, not just using it as a stopover on the way to the Channel ports. Well done to the Club and the staff.

Autumn break.

First time visit to site and have found it to be extremely well appointed for visiting various places of interest. The fact that a no.16 bus stops outside the site every 20 mins and takes you directly to centre of Canterbury is a bonus and means not having to drive, £7 for an explorer ticket cover all day travel. Site most pleasant and staff very helpful. Opposite site entrance is a local, well stocked, shop.

This time we stayed longer

We have visited this site on a number of occasions using the ferry pitches for an overnight before or after the Channel Tunnel. Each time we have told ourselves that we should come back to visit properly. I am glad we finally did so, staying in the "paddock" in the site proper rather than the ferry pitches near the entrance. The site was quite full and the hardstandings available were mainly in the shade, fine for the hot summer we have had, but not so good for September, so we pitched on a grass pitch, which was reasonably flat and very spacious. The facilities at this end are just as clean as the ferry pitches, but are looking a little tired and could do with refurbishment in the next few years, That said, no complaints at all, plenty of hot water for showers, washing and washing up. We did not use the laundry area but it looked useful. From the site it is a right turn to go down to the tunnel, and the M20/A20 for Folkestone & Dover, left for a 20/25 minute drive to the park and ride at Canterbury or to the Eastern coast for Margate, Broadstairs or Whitstable. All in all an excellent site for short break, not just a ferry/tunnel overnighter.
