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.

Great Site

We had been to the site before, but this year decided to spend a couple of weeks here. The location is great for visiting anywhere in Kent, each day we went to a different seaside. We went from Hastings to Whitstable and plenty of resorts in between - so many lovely places to see. Previously we had used the bus service to Folkestone/Canterbury, however due to Covid we decided to take the car. We found parking was fairly reasonable, and even found a free car park, close to Walmer Castle. Perfect for a walk along the beach either to Deal or to the Zutland Arms, Kingdsdown for a meal/drink (dog friendly - as seating outside). We would also recommend Samphire Hoe, just up the hill out of Dover - quirky little find. Sandwich also a must, beautiful medieval town. The shop across the road has supplies and newspapers and the owner is very friendly. We visited the Black Horse Farm for a couple of meals, outstanding food. Sadly they did not have a "proper ale". We also ordered a takeaway Sunday Roast from the White Horse Pub in Hawkinge, and a great Indian takeaway from Garam Mosala, both fabulous food. We ate much more in the caravan this year, due to Covid - but this did not put us off going away again. The staff are very friendly and professional. The only negative with the site was that I found myself on a few occasions bagging someone else's dog waste, in the Dog Walk! Nothing the staff can do about this, but think people let their dogs off leads and didn't watch where they went. Disappointing as only Caravan Club owners on site.

Great site...Fabulous staff and 1st class facilities.

Ok so the site itself is a fabulous location, 1st class communal facilties with caring helpful professional staff. But....and this is absolutely no reflection of the site. The Black horse pub across the road is a disgrace. Advertises real ales and all day home cooked food available. So 1st visit Wednesday...hi is kitchen open?....no sorry the chefs not turned up...he's tired today. 2nd visit Thursday 19.45...hi is the kitchen open?....no the chef goes home at 20.00 so not taking any more orders. 3rd time lucky I thought...Saturday 17.30...hi is the kitchen open?...oh yes of course...find yourself a table. I did so and got handed a laminated menu by the waitress...it was covered in mucky finger prints and old food deposits clearly not been wiped clean..so I sat with pint and waited for the waitress to come and take my order....I waited waited and waited while she was prancing about with locals editing the jukebox. Eventually 1/2 hour later after all the frolicking she came over and said oh hasn't anyone taken your order yet.? A joke....an absolute joke....dont bother with this pub.

First time here. Second time in our motorhome

New to the motorhome world so this review is based on how this compared with the other site we stayed at in the Cotswolds a couple of weeks earlier. First mistake we made was that we got it wrong when choosing our pitch (I didn't comprehend the rules around the different coloured posts!) so we had the shame of having to move. Then, having identified the best pitch available we then found we were sharing the area with a wasp nest so had to move a third time. We now see it is a bit of a lottery securing the plot you want and found ourselves looking at other campers through envious eyes as they had pitches that were basking in the sunshine compared with our shaded pitch. Dog walk area was tiny and led no-where. We had to do lots of our own research and found a local wood around 1/2 mile away. You can't really walk anywhere as the road to the neighbouring areas was along a busy road. If there was a way to get into the adjoining field from the site that would be great for walks. I appreciate everyone wants something different from their time away but for us its all about being able to go for a leisurely dog walk and for us it didn't quite offer that. The facilities themselves were fine and the Village store directly opposite the site was well stocked and owned by a lovely guy. Hope this perspective helps others with 4 legged friends

Coming home

Black horse site is one of our favourite sites & usually try to visit 4/5 times a year. Site is always clean & well looked after. Wardens alway cheerful & very helpful. We love the site because Bus stops just outside for Canterbury & Folkestone. Handy convenience store opposite & local pub bit further down road. The site has good size dog walking area, also leafy lanes to wander down. We liked the Covid 19 set up with bands in solution & plenty of hand sanitiser at all facilities. Hopefully be back before Christmas.

Nice to be back

We were booked in for March but unfortunately didn't happen due to lockdown. We came down for a week as soon as we were allowed then returned for two weeks late July/August. Wardens couldn't have been more helpful and so friendly, so much busier on our second visit but still a great site to be on. Lots of places to visit locally. Site is very organised re Covid Secure, lots of hand gel available, wrist bands for entry to loo blocks with colour change each day. We found that our own facilities on board worked well for us so didn't need to used the clubs facilities but good to know they were so clean.
