Solley's Farm (Grange Farm Ltd)

We used this CL as a stopover before catching the ferry from Dover. We knew we would be a 'late arrival' so phoned ahead. As we have a motorhome we asked for a hardstanding. Mr Solley suggested we pitched up in the large hardstanding area before entering the field. (there were hook-ups) This was ideal as we arrived about 10.00pm and it meant we did not disturb the others. We did not hear any traffic noise. Mr Solley came to see us in the morning, was very nice, and explained where everything was. The toilet emptying was just over the other side of the large hardstanding area. (not in the farmyard any more) Before leaving we looked around the grassed area which was very large and well kept. Although we didn't need to use them, the toilet and shower area was to a very high quality. We hope to use this site again.
We'd never been to Kent and picked a wonderful week at the end of September for our first visit. Mr Solley was away when we arrived and one of the other residents told us where everything was. We met Mr Solley a few days later and he was very amiable and helpful with local advice. The site is all grass, each pitch has its own water and 16amp supply (which never tripped once for the whole week we were there). Grey water goes into a grid in the courtyard but toilet disposal is a bit of a pain across the pebbled courtyard and a public road into the farm yard. The toilet block was always clean and tidy but we didn't use their shower. An ideal location for exploring. Ramsgate - nice. Margate - bit of a dump. Deal - nice. Rye - very pretty. Dungerness - magical. Langdon cliffs & Lighthouse (over looking Dover port) - a lovely walk. Plus lots of other places Sandwich, Canterbury, Hythe that are well worth a look. Hythe to Dungerness railway was good fun on a nice day. All in all recommended as a base for visiting the area or as a staging post as is only 20-30 minutes from Dover.
