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. Local shops and a convenience store can also be found close by to the site.

Ferry pitch

A fantastic welcome from the wardens, toilets near reception clean but starting to look dated. Allocated a hard standing ferry pitch but VERY disappointed to have to use levelling ramp to get our caravan level, how can a new hard standing pitch (come to think of it ANY hard standing pitch) need ramps to get level across the axle? It is just a sign or poor (or cheap) workmanship. Makes a quick and quiet early morning get-a-way very difficult.

Great site for us oldies!

We have been members of the club for 36 years and have high expectations of C&MC sites. Having used a site with the same name many years ago, The differences were amazing, so much so we're not convinced it's the same place. This site is great for a relaxed, quiet and comfortable stay. Obviously useful for Channel Crossers but if you want to visit Canterbury or Folkestone/Hythe, it's perfect. Easy to access, bust stop almost right outside, post office/general store immediately opposite (lovely owners) and a great pub with food less than 100m away. What more do you want. The site is perfectly maintained (typical C&MC), showers great and lovely, level hard standing pitches - grass pitches also so very good. Wardens are fabulous, friendly, helpful and hard working. Toilet blocks excellent! Will DEFINITELY return.

2nd time around

2nd visit to the site this year. Plenty of space, clean and ample facilities. Several good pubs within easy walking distance, but easier by the local bus which stops just outside the site. Grounds well maintained, but watch out for the rabbits. Well worth a stop over if you're travelling across the briny by ferry. I'll be back again around September. Had a great stay and the staff were excellent and friendly. Also very knowledgeable in relation to nearby attractions

Mad Bear Diving

This is the third time we have used this site and once again it has been superb. We were late away and the reception staff were still waiting for us when we arrived at 6 p.m. Cannot recommend highly enough. If you do stay make sure you visit the Battle of Britain Memorial which is only a few miles away; a hugely emotive experience with lots of interactive activities for children and grown up.

Excellent site with pleasant, helpful staff

Stayed at Black Horse Farm several times which is an excellent location for the Tunnel or Ferry Ports with only a short drive to either. The site is geared up for early departures with pitches near to the site exit. The staff are always pleasant and helpful, the facilities spotlessly clean and the grounds well maintained. For those wishing to fuel up or stock up ready for the journey there are several large supermarkets & fuel stations within a short drive.
