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.

Half Term Break

Had a lovely quiet stay at Black Horse Farm even though it was full. The staff are very helpful and keep the site spotlessly clean. Overall a very relaxing week.

Bank Holiday Stay

Stayed for the Whitsun May Bank Holiday for 3 nights - adult couple, in 40s, with motorhome. Was unsure what to expect but wasn't disappointed. Very friend site - staff and fellow campers. Perfectly suited for motorhomers who want to park up and explore on foot - lovely bluebell walk in Densole Woods almost opposite. Great little shop over the road and very friendly pub just a minute's walk away. Caught bus from the pub to Folkestone and Hythe (£4.50 hop on/off day return covering decent area) very 20 minutes - lots to explore in the area. Can change buses and go further afield for about £7 a day to Canterbury/Dover/Rye. Didn't stop off in Hawkinge but couple of supermarkets and pubs right on the bus route. Although didn't use the dog walk area looked good and a nice kids play area.  Also an area for tents only which is handy if anyone wants to meet up. Very quiet considering proximity to road.  Added bonus of the plans above (spitfires etc) I assume from the air museum in Hawkinge.

Great find - will be certain to return!

Campervan Stay

I have just joined the Caravan and Motorhome Club and this was my first visit to a site. All the staff and other visitors were very nice and helpful. It was just me and my dog and the facilities were perfect for the both of us with the added benefit of local dog walks. Definately reccomend the blackhorse pub as their food is lovely! Will definately stay at this site again in the future.

Black Horse - Excellent Site

Lovely peaceful site. Next to a busy road but layout means road noise is not an issue. Black Horse pub barely a 5 min walk and has good drinks options and does great meals. Great for Canterbury and must visit the B of B Monument at Capel-Le-Ferne. Also not too far for a visit to Leeds Castle. A great day out, although admission fee is a little expensive. Worth following the coastal route sign posted from Folkestone to Ramsgate. Include a detour to St Margarit's Bay. Absolutely beautiful place away from the hustle and bustle of other locations in Kent.
