Just returned to our first trip here and we will definitely be staying again.
We, with our friends we’re the only 2 units there for the first night with one other camper staying the second night. Aside from a large Motorhome tucked away in one corner which looks like it may be permanent as the occupied came and went a couple of times. It’s a big field with the river one side and train track the other. The trains are around once per hour and didn’t bother us at all. The train station is at the entrance to the marina so really handy if you wanted to go into Maidstone or further afield.
The site is well maintained and the grass short. We were really lucky with very sunny, warm weather. Secure site with access only via the code to the lock to open the gate.
We decided to cycle along the river path which wasn’t the best idea as it was very narrow, with lots of stinging nettles in parts so should have walked it instead which would have been really nice. We bought some cakes from the little bakery van just opposite the site entrance and they were very yummy indeed!
We had dinner at The Railway pub just over the road from the train station. The food was good and exceeded our expectations.
The only small negative here, as others have said, is the long walk to the chemical toilet emptying point, rubbish disposal and water point. Too far to carry a heavy, full toilet cassette. That said, we only stayed 2 nights so managed to wait until we drove past them on the way home to empty.
