Why stay here ...

With a beautiful setting and attractive view of the splendid Lympne Castle in the distance, Daleacres Club Site is a great choice for a family getaway with an excellent dog walk and play area.

Daleacres Club Site gives you convenient access to surrounding places of interest such as the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch miniature railway. Enjoy a safari experience at nearby Port Lympne Zoo - you can sometimes hear the lions and monkeys from the site! East Kent has loads of attractions to keep the whole family happy, beginning with the attractive village of nearby Hythe. The charming town of Rye with its cobbled streets is nearby, and coastal town of Hastings is about an hour's drive from the site. Medieval Dover Castle is also well worth a visit. Good pubs and lovely local walks can be found within a mile of this Kent touring and camping site.

The caravan site also puts you within easy reach of charming channel ports along the coast as well as the Channel Tunnel for those who fancy popping over to France for the day. Further inland, you can discover the wonders of The Garden of England - Kent is famous for its natural beauty. 

A fish and chip van occasionally visit this site, please ask the site staff for details.

Need a car

We have a Motorhome so once we've set up that's it. So if your like us don't bother coming here. I read reviews about waking up the canal to Hythe, yes if you want to walk up country roads with no path way ... very dangerous we turned back. The leaflet they give you on arrival states bus stop 0.2 miles away .. there is no bus stop If you have a car it's very central with lots of places to visit. The site itself is nice and big, good dog walk, good stocked shop (which you need if you run out of any thing as no shops near by) clean & tidy. This site is not for us

Daleacres needs an UPGRADE

Having spent 5 days at Daleacres, we were surprised to find that even though Yurts and a camping field has been added, there are no extra toilets and showers to accommodate the extra numbers using the facilities. The ladies loos were constantly blocked by toilet paper because they needed to be operated several times to flush! Children would have been unable to flush the toilets. There were queues for the showers and the toilets were reduced to THREE working on several mornings. It is a poor example to show to the many visitors from abroad, especially as it is close to the ferry ports. The site is well spaced out and it is a superb area for cycling along the quiet traffic free lanes. The route along the Royal Military Canal is excellent for cycling into Hythe. The wardens are very helpful and hardworking. Thanks for a lovely stay in spite of the conditions in the ladies loos!

Family friendly site

We arrived on the site on 31st July with 3 grand children aged 6 and 4 having previously been on this site 25 years ago. The layout of the site is excellent the cleanliness of the toilet block was very good. The location is very good with plenty of activities in the area to keep the children entertained. The wardens were efficient and friendly. We had very good weather so that helps with the children outside for majority of the day. My only criticism was that the grass in our area near the playground needed cutting. I appreciate that the site was pretty full and that grass cutting around pitches creates problems.

Need a car or bikes for this site.

I’m with the previous reviewer in that I found this site ok but nothing special. I thought it was just me. Facilities are ok and clean but not enough of them at busy times. Hardstandings are large but feel a bit crammed in on the the grass when all the pitches are in use. We did have a nice view of the castle and hills albeit distant from our pitch. Wardens were lovely and work hard. Shop pretty well stocked as is needed with no shop close by. As Motorhomers who need to walk everywhere there is very little of interest nearby. Long walk to Hythe and although it’s a nice walk along the canal once you’ve done it you don’t really want to be doing it daily! Nothing if you walk in the other direction on the canal. Might be ok if you are cycling. Other than that its walking on the road. No bus stop nearby. A tired pub up the road. Some nice eateries in Hythe. The Butt of Sherry do a fabulous steak. Loved the railway, had a trip to Dymchurch which is a very traditional seaside resort. I’m sure if you have a car there is lots to see and do in the area and that is why this site is so popular. Quite a lot of one nighters who I assume are coming and going from the Ferry or Tunnel. Spoke to lots of people on site who absolutely love it here but we didn’t feel the same. God job we are all different.
