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.

Lovely site, but better for "tuggers" with a car.

I had a lovely week here in October with some favourable weather. The site is beautifully kept, one of the best; lots of lovely flowers in various beds, pots and other containers, still looking pretty in October. I did not use the facilities at all, given current conditions, so cannot comment on them, but, if the site itself was a guide, they must be good and very clean; I was also told by others that access was organised very well to minimise any risks. It is a large site with lots of grass pitches arranged for the most part, as is usually the case, to the rear of hard standings – rather anathema to me. However, it was not in high occupancy at the time of my visit, so this was not an issue. Personal preference is such that I would not choose to come here in the summer and particularly not in school holidays. I think it would have a very busy feel. Because of this, and also because of a lack of public transport nearby (being in a motorhome that stays put once pitched), Daleacres is not a site that I would normally choose. However, these are special times and public transport and populous places remain out for me; therefore an isolated site with lots of very flat countryside to enable easy bicycling was the appeal and why I specifically chose to come here. Lower Wall Road, on which the site is located, is narrow, but traffic light; cycling was not too bad, but walking felt unsafe. Once on the wider roads and many paths, cycling was excellent. Hythe can be reached either by cycle paths along much of the A259 or along a bridle path adjacent to the Military Canal north of the site. From Hythe, you can reach Folkestone along the front. Dymchurch, in the other direction, is not too far on mostly quiet lanes; thereafter the sea wall takes you to Littlestone and more quiet roads reach Dungeness. When running, the RHDR can transport you to New Romney and Dungeness, but you still need to reach a station – Hythe or Dymchurch being the options for cyclists or Hythe on foot, but a good hour walk. For walking in general, there are many footpaths, but they were largely vague tracks across muddy fields leading who knows where and accessing them meant walking for some part on the aforementioned narrow lane. Walking was not a good option. If wanting to venture north, you have to be prepared for hills; I wanted to reconnoitre Lympne/Ashford Airport as it once was, but Lympne Hill was too much. A kind warden gave me an alternative route with a gentler climb. This afforded me a lovely round trip and the joy of coming down Lympne Hill rather than trying to get up it! I bagged a great serviced pitch, number 8; the surface looked fairly new. One very minor complaint – the hoses on the chemical disposal points were way too short! But perhaps due to the virus? So, to sum up, a lovely site, best for caravanners with lots to visit in the area. I enjoyed my week here and I would recommend it highly for those with a car or those with a bike and lots of energy!

Excellent

Got back today from a long weekend at Daleacres. Very friendly wardens and a lovely site even though I picked one of the shadiest pitches on the site! The wardens made us feel very welcome on arrival and could not have been more helpful and every time you saw them on site they always had a friendly word. We will definitely be going back to this one.

Lovely, peaceful stay

Had a lovely peaceful stay at Daleacres. Facilities were always clean, plenty of sanitising stations around the site. Very pet friendly and has a large Dog walking field. Has a football pitch and playground for the kids, could do with a couple of swings for the older children, but still enjoyable. Site staff were very helpful and friendly towards us and the children. Diane, Jacqueline and Kim were all fantastic for the full duration of our stay and would always stop and chat to us. Would definitely recommend this site just based on the staff alone. Thank you for a brilliant visit!! From Mr & Mrs Ruddock, children and Ralph 🐾 xxx

Our ‘go to’ site

Since we bought our Motorhome 4 years ago this has become our favourite local ‘go to’ site when wanting a weekend away. We have visited 3 times this year alone. Facilities of a very high standard, wardens exceptionally friendly and in our opinion well located. We love the local area. Being very active the cycling here into Hythe along the Royal Military canal is lovely as is the ride down to Dymchurch along quiet country lanes for fish and chips by the beach. We’ve also enjoyed cycling along to Folkestone along the seafront. There are plenty of nice walks nearby too.
