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.

Lovely site

Black Horse Farm Caravan Club Site
This is a gorgeous site, great location to see loads, Dover castle, Leeds castle and easy to get into Canterbury by bus, however, the shower block, despite being extremely clean, needs a serious refurbishment, the showers spray everywhere and the block is very tired.

Black Horse Farm Caravan Club Site
Well,located for the Battle of Britain memorial and the coast . the service pitches were really wide and in Avery quiet spot very accessible.Two toilet block unfortunatley one was out of action due to drain problems.But this did not distract from the camp site .Walkable to the pub. We greeted with Two Hurricanes flying over most afternoons . Will certainly return as good stop over for the tunnel. Thanks Shan

First visit

Black Horse Farm Caravan Club Site
First visit to this site and was not disappointed. Very convenient for Kent coast towns and Canterbury. For those wishing to use local bus services, stops are right outside the site. Across the road from the site is a little shop/post office. This is a quiet site with friendly staff.

Always a good experience

Black Horse Farm Caravan Club Site
We have been to Black Horse site several times at different times of the year as we have our grandchildren nearby. We have had experience of several different wardens who consistently are friendly and informative. The site although near a very busy road from Folkstone to Canterbury doesn't detract from its loveliness. Although there is no on site shop the small shop opposite has plenty of reasonably priced items and the shopkeeper is a very pleasent and approachable man. Altogether the site is one of our favourites.

Very nice site but keep away from plots around plot 104.

Black Horse Farm Caravan Club Site
Very nice site and wardens very friendly and accomadating.The site is on a very good bus route and if like us you have a car it,s location is very good for touring. Only one thing that spoilt the end of our stay was the location of the drain pumps which when being pumped out and exchange of pump caused a very bad drain smell,if we were warned sooner we would have moved our outfit to a different plot but as we only had a couple days left stayed in place and went of touring more.Great site but keep away from plots around number 104.
