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.

Convenient for Dover ferry and Canterbury visit

The only CC-campsite of the 10 we visited in May/June were the staff member who checked us in, did not know which pitches have more shadow then others. That surprised us. Another staff member helped us very well when we asked for information about visiting Canterbury by bus. The bus stop is 70 metres from the campsite, costs 14 pounds per person and is less then half an hour. One evening it was very windy and cold. Used by many as a stopp over from/to ferry or channel, but we heard nothing of that during the night or early morning and our pitch was nearby the ferry pitches.

BHF

Coming from M20 directions to Densole reasonably clear but prominent signs for rival campsite distract navigation; easy to make wrong turning at roundabout in village ( 200yds short of sign for club site). Staff at site very dismissive of this comment. A Caravan Club sign next to the other campsite sign would avoid a 5 mile detour! The site itself in all other respects was reasonable.

Convenient for Eurotunnel

Ideal site for overnight stay prior to Eurotunnel crossing. The wardens are helpful, welcoming and friendly. Overnight ferry pitches are very good. The Black Horse Pub across the road does very good food with generous portions. The pitch was clean and tidy and the facilities spotlessly clean. Overall an excellent site.

Great place to stop before crossing channel

Stopped here overnight before a Eurotunnel crossing in the morning. The site is only 10 minutes from the tunnel. Facilities were spotless and staff friendly. Had a hard standing pitch for the Campervan which was a good size for a one night stop. Will definitely be back next time we are off to France. Would also consider getting a late afternoon crossing on the way back and and stopping over and drive home in the morning

Not impressed

Stayed here on a ferry pitch which I requested to be hard standing when I called to pay. Ended up with a muddy pitch at the bottom of the hill by the dog walking around other holiday makers. We must have upset everyone around us with our 6 am leave time - again this was communicated to reception on booking and arrival and we were just told to be 'as quiet as we can'! The water logged and muddy pitch was a disaster for a night, it was stressed to us that we had to park close to the blue peg as possible, when in fact it would have been better to park in the less muddy bit of our pitch, we ruined a good pair of shoes squelching around. Facilities were very dated, which would have been fine if they were clean but they were not. Would not return.
