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.

Great short stay

We had a lovely stay. Good for amateur cyclists around the local woods and country side. Stumbled in Historic battle of Britain plane museum. At booking reception staff very helpful and accommodating to newbies.. ( Only one person in reception that was a little grumpy ! Will definitely go again ...

Bank holiday weekend

We stayed here for the May bank holiday weekend. It's our second visit to the site and there will be many more. The site is easily accessible and the pitches are a good size. It's very quiet and well kept. There is a little park for children and a lovely enclosed dog walk which my puppy loved. We took a walk along the cliffs to the Battle of Britain Memorial which is a lovely walk. If your children are into geocaching then there are a few nice circular trails nearby to do. Overall a very enjoyable weekend and it was great to be out caravanning again!

A Dog’s Perspective

Just returned home from a week stay which was thoroughly enjoyed. The easy access a short distance from the M20/A20 meant that I wasn’t cooped up in the car for too long. Inevitably the good road links caused some road noise but this soon faded into the distance particularly in the lower part of the site which had the rural feel my springer spaniel nose enjoys best. It even had plenty of rabbits to entertain me as I walked past to and from the dog run. Great dog run by the way, plenty of room for me to stretch my legs off lead and I even managed to chase a ball quite regularly down the line of trees as there were very few canine competitors around. No dog wash for my muddy paws (ha like I care!) but I heard the owners mention how clean and well-maintained their washing facilities were with good showers for them to enjoy - each to their own. Found a few footpaths to enjoy from the site and I particularly enjoyed running freely in Reinden Woods in Densole which we walked too as well. In fact it was a good holiday for walks with easy access to the North Downs, the Wye walk being a particular favourite, as well as a breezy walk on the cliffs above Dover but who doesn’t mind their ears flapping when there is a good view. Shame the owners didn’t let me off lead here - for some reason they thought that just because I’m obsessed with jumping in water, I might have gone over the white cliffs even with the fencing. As if us springers are that daft..........?!

Nice site

1st time here very pleased with the site will visit again as its close to lots of places and obviously good for travelling to France. Only downside is pitches near the road will get some traffic noise but these pitches are reserved for ferry crossing. Only problem I found was that on the serviced pitches if you are parked to the left of the mains water connection a standard length hose will not reach even running diagonally under the van. I had to go and purchase some hose and fittings to make it longer by some 6 to 7 meters. But I still would recommend this site.
