Wonderful...

I really never have been to such a perfect and well managed cl, and this is really down to the lovely down to earth and characterful owner; Paula. Utterly peaceful, immaculately managed, nicely planted pitching area and very generous yet private feeling pitches to boot. Paula is helpful and a fun and stimulating conversationalist if needed, but sensitive to visitors' wishing for peace and privacy. The shower is 50p, but lasts for a whopping 8 minutes. The wildlife around you is abundant and if you are a bird lover, you will certainly be in for a treat. Paula certainly encourages the wildlife around her, even down to a visiting pheasant she nurtures. The beauty of the site isn't all a simple coincidence at all.. the truth is simply that Paula is simply the heart and soul of this cl and her passion translates into its excellence. Really, really impressed :)

lovely peaceful site

Just returned from a four night break at Little Rhode Farm and what a lovely site it is, well kept, spread out pitches and a very warm welcome from the owners. Lots of bird life plus rabbits and squirrels too. We will definitely be returning!

Perfect Weekend

My husband and I just spent four nights at Little Rhode Farm over the Easter weekend. It was absolutely fabulous. It was a bonus that the weather was so kind to us and we saw the most wildlife we've seen outside of the New Forest. There were squirrels and jays and woodpeckers and even a resident pheasant that wanders around to visit all the pitches. The grass pitches are huge and separated by trees and hedges. There are also several hardstandings so the site can be used all year round in all weathers. The site is in a lovely area too. Just across the road there is a bridle path that leads directly into Lyminge Forest. We had a lovely long walk each day and didn't take the car out once. We explored the forest one day and did a circular route around Elham on the second day. Elham is a gorgeous village. On the third day we walked down into Stowting which is another lovely little village. We received a warm welcome from the owner, Paula, who showed us to our pitch. There is a shower and toilets, although we didn't use these as we prefer to use our caravan. There is also a washing up sink which is useful for cleaning the BBQ. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Little Rhode Farm for a peaceful back to nature break and we will definitely be returning.

Great CL

Just spent 4 nights here and have to say it is a great place to stay.The site is in a very quiet area with the forest nearby.There is a Ladies and a Gents toilet,a shower ( although not working when we were there due to changeable weather) and all the usual water and waste points.T.V reception is good.There are both hard standings and grass pitches and most of the grass pitches have a picnic bench.At night a torch will be needed as there is not lighting apart from in the toilets.But this is a bonus as the view of the stars is worth the effort.All in all this is a great site to visit if you are in the area.

Just Outstanding

Only one word to describe this site...... WOW!!!!!!!! In all the years that we have been using CL sites nowhere has ever come close to this. Mrs Peers (Paula) is just amazing, nothing is too much trouble and if you want local info she can give it. The site is located on the edge of a forest so lots of birds and wildlife to enjoy. Virtually no noise apart from the occasional car/tractor using the narrow lane that the site is accessed from and some aircraft which pass overhead on their descent to Heathrow/Gatwick. However they are high so not intrusive. Better is the guy who flies a Spitfire over the site nearly every day, on several occasions we enjoyed him doing victory rolls and barrel loop the loops right overhead. Locally there is a massive amount to do, we stayed for 12 days and still did not get everywhere we had intended to. So we are already planning our return. Access is easy but you must follow the directions provided, if you try and be clever and follow satnav you will end up in a very narrow lane with hedges and trees damaging your caravan. Mrs Peers has a rule, depart by 12 and dont arrive until after 1 pm. You cant go wrong. Wish I was there now!

Great two weeks holiday of peace & quiet for us & the cat

A great site with wonderful owners, the welcome was first class and our cat who comes with us all the time was included in this. The set up was wonderful had our own price of heaven surrounded by trees, bushes and wild life. Weather was great sunshine all the time except on day when we had a thunderstorms and heavy rain which come under the awning but Paula came out to see if we was OK. Great location to visit many different places in Kent Thank you for a great stay we will be back

A peaceful break

We had a lovely 3 days staying at this CL. As other reviewers note, Mrs Peers is welcoming and helpful and it would seem that nothing is too much for her, as per usual there was a box of things we forgot and Mrs Peers was happy to provide washing liquid and a sponge for us. Facilities were great and the site is in a beautifully peaceful rural setting. Perfect location for visits to Folkestone, Canterbury, Ashford and all the lovely quaint villages in the Garden of England.

Wonderful Weekend Stay

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Little Rhode Farm. We were met by the very friendly owner who showed us where to pitch. Unusually for a CL there was a washing up room along with a gents toilet and ladies toilet and shower. There is also a collection of books in the washing up room which you are welcome to borrow. This is a beautiful site with a nice large field where my daughter and I played bat and ball as no one else was pitched on the grass area. We were blessed with beautiful weather which added to the lovely surroundings. For the walkers there is a footpath opposite taking you directly into the forest. We chose instead to walk across the fields to Elham which must rate of as one of the prettiest villages in Kent, not to be missed. The lane approaching the farm is a little narrow but it is only for 200 yards, we had no trouble with a 7.5 metre motorhome We had a great chat with the owner prior to leaving. I am sure we will be back

A true English welcome to a lovely site

I stayed here about a week ago for four nights. A wonderful and peaceful site. Mrs Peers is a lovely lady. Looking out for everyone, but not in an obtrusive way. A very pleasant and warm welcome. A lovely touch is the way in which one can find a small area between the trees and bushes to site your van for privacy if needed. Also the tables which are provided. It was lovely to sit out and eat breakfast in the sunshine. The site itself is very handy for the Battle of Britain memorial at Capel le Ferne, and also the Museum at Hawkinge - both well worth visiting. There are various other attractions close by, and the scenery is lovely as well. Be careful on the approach for the last couple of miles, and do not arrive before one pm. Turn right off the A 2068 at the now Esso (no longer Jet) garage, and take it easy from that point on. Look for the sign in Rhodes Minnis which says 'Cats Refuge' on a blue board and turn there. A great CL, and one to which I intend to return.

Will definitely come back

This is one of the nicest CL's we have stayed on. Mrs Peers is very welcoming and helpful - don't be put off by the narrow approach road, as she manages this very well with timed departures and arrivals to ensure that caravans don't meet in the middle! The site is well laid out and the pitches are very spacious and well maintained. The facilities block is well kept and provides everything that you might need. There was lots of information provided about local attractions, as there is so much to do and see nearby, and the site itself is very peaceful. All in all we had a lovely stay and can't recommend this site highly enough - will definitely be back!
