Why stay here ...

Surrounded by arable farmland and commercial orchards in the charming Weald of Kent, Tanner Farm Touring Caravan and Camping Park is a delightful place for a peaceful get-away-from-it-all break for the family, whatever the season. 

The Kent caravan, touring and camping park has an open yet secluded feel with very high standards of facilities. Visitors can wander across the fields up to the Bluebell Wood, which is absolutely magical in the spring. In fact the site gives you easy access to a variety of walks throughout this beautiful part of Kent, the Garden of England.

The Park is ideally situated for the many attractions in this area, with easy access to both Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone via a bus stop located directly outside the Caravan Park. With something to suit everyone, you won’t run out of things to do and see, from a high concentration of National Trust venues, glorious countryside and safe beaches. There's a wide selection of restaurants and pubs in the nearby villages and towns to suit everyone from fish and chips to a la carte.

First visit to Tanner Farm

Stayed here February 2019, lovely tucked away site, staff were extremely helpful, especially the young fella who got our Moho started with tractor. Thank you. Facilities were very clean and kept tidy. Unfortunately t.v, mobile and internet were very poor. Walks were excellent, office has a few printed walk routes which were great.

Incorrect Information

The campsite was very clean and showers excellent. Reception were friendly but not very knowledgeable. The review stated that the bus stop was located directly outside the Caravan Park, this is not accurate. The bus stop is 17 minutes walk from the site along a treacherous road, with no footpath or walkable verge. When we asked for info regarding bus services we were told at Reception that 'I haven't been on a bus in 30 years' so she couldn't help. We manged to get the bus into Marden then the train to Tonbridge where we had to change for Tunbridge Wells so that wasn't straightforward either. The last bus back from Marden was timetabled for 18.30 but that was only weekdays so we tried a taxi but they weren't running either, we then discovered the taxi service had closed down. Thank goodness for the wonderful landlady in the West End Tavern (info@westendtavern.co.uk) who drove us back to the campsite. This is not the first time she has come to the rescue of campsite visitors. The wide selection of restaurants and pubs in the nearby villages and towns is totally dependent on your own transport - nothing is within safe walking distance. If you are a Motorhome owner as we are in the winter months this is not a site to visit unless you also tow a car or are prepared to drive your Motorhome into the villages.

Did not meet expectations

Although spacious pitch’s - hard standing or grass are of good size, I wouldn’t necessarily say peaceful! Yes, plenty of room for children to run around and play. Yes, access to dog walks or walks in general but unfortunately not all fellow campers considered how noisy their children were or their dogs when in close proximity to others!! I have children and a dog - which we didn’t bring, I felt like certain others didn’t care how noisy they were. Receptionists were not the most welcoming. The maintenance chap on the tractor was the friendliest. The shower blocks are slightly on the small side and the south block stinks of grey waste water whether it’s been cleaned or not! Hand dryer is something from the 1970’s and so is the hair dryer. Our Motorhome and our friends Motorhome were situated on nice large pitches but opposite the bins and next to the waste water treatment building!! Nice smells - not and noise of glass bottles being thrown into the bins during day and night was most annoying!! I understand this site is being made out to be top rated. We stay usually on caravan club or 5 star sits and I’m afraid Tanner Park not to our standard and not as nice as most of the caravan clubs own sites. Others may have a different perspective but it’s not a site we will return to. I think it’s lost its Mojo...sorry Tanner Farm!

No Motorhomes on grass!

After being lied to on the phone that Motorhome are not allowed on grass only on hard standing I booked a pod. The pod was basic but done the job. I found that there were 2 Motorhomes on the grass and several campers. The site has more rules than a nazi concentration camp which I broke becoz I moved my car from the pod to go see friends on a different park of the site. Won’t be back!

Beginning to feel like home here!

Our married son and his family live very near to Tanner Farm, so it's a convenient place for us to visit them. We have stayed on 5 separate occasions now, and each time it's been very good. The staff are very friendly helpful. The shower and toilet facilities are superb. Great walks directly from the site to walk the dogs.
