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.

September holiday

Had 15 glorious nights here in September, the weather was a real bonus! We were very apprehensive on arrival as this was our first trip out since lockdown, but we needn't have been! We were greeted by Sarah, a very friendly & informative warden, explaining all the new Covid safety rules. Our all service pitch was superb. The standard of cleanliness in the loo blocks was first class & the wristband system worked very well, only allowing a maximum of 4 people in at any one time. Judith, the other lady warden was so helpful & went above & beyond to help me with a problem, in fact we couldn't fault the friendliness & professionalism of all the staff, they all work so hard. We were due to return this month but sadly have not been able to make it, but will be back in the Spring. Can highly recommend this site.

So pleased we came here!

We booked here for one night on our way out of the UK as another site let us down and it was our fortune they did. The site was very quiet (time of year) and we were very happy with our pitch, price, services etc. The showers are absolutely first class and, in our humble opinion, the best we've ever come across on a campsite. No chance to see the local facilities or surrounding area but another time perhaps. Our rating re families was low because we can't judge it - perhaps there should be an 'I don't know option'. Thanks everyone at Black Horse Farm.

Great Site

We had been to the site before, but this year decided to spend a couple of weeks here. The location is great for visiting anywhere in Kent, each day we went to a different seaside. We went from Hastings to Whitstable and plenty of resorts in between - so many lovely places to see. Previously we had used the bus service to Folkestone/Canterbury, however due to Covid we decided to take the car. We found parking was fairly reasonable, and even found a free car park, close to Walmer Castle. Perfect for a walk along the beach either to Deal or to the Zutland Arms, Kingdsdown for a meal/drink (dog friendly - as seating outside). We would also recommend Samphire Hoe, just up the hill out of Dover - quirky little find. Sandwich also a must, beautiful medieval town. The shop across the road has supplies and newspapers and the owner is very friendly. We visited the Black Horse Farm for a couple of meals, outstanding food. Sadly they did not have a "proper ale". We also ordered a takeaway Sunday Roast from the White Horse Pub in Hawkinge, and a great Indian takeaway from Garam Mosala, both fabulous food. We ate much more in the caravan this year, due to Covid - but this did not put us off going away again. The staff are very friendly and professional. The only negative with the site was that I found myself on a few occasions bagging someone else's dog waste, in the Dog Walk! Nothing the staff can do about this, but think people let their dogs off leads and didn't watch where they went. Disappointing as only Caravan Club owners on site.

Great site...Fabulous staff and 1st class facilities.

Ok so the site itself is a fabulous location, 1st class communal facilties with caring helpful professional staff. But....and this is absolutely no reflection of the site. The Black horse pub across the road is a disgrace. Advertises real ales and all day home cooked food available. So 1st visit Wednesday...hi is kitchen open?....no sorry the chefs not turned up...he's tired today. 2nd visit Thursday 19.45...hi is the kitchen open?....no the chef goes home at 20.00 so not taking any more orders. 3rd time lucky I thought...Saturday 17.30...hi is the kitchen open?...oh yes of course...find yourself a table. I did so and got handed a laminated menu by the waitress...it was covered in mucky finger prints and old food deposits clearly not been wiped clean..so I sat with pint and waited for the waitress to come and take my order....I waited waited and waited while she was prancing about with locals editing the jukebox. Eventually 1/2 hour later after all the frolicking she came over and said oh hasn't anyone taken your order yet.? A joke....an absolute joke....dont bother with this pub.
