A great campsite to explore Canterbury, with a bus stop outside the site entrance.
City, coast and countryside – you can take your pick if you’re basing yourself at our Canterbury Club campsite. Although a popular stopover for those travelling to or from France, this campsite offers the ideal base for exploring Kent’s coast and country.
The campsite lies a couple of miles south of the city – within walking distance (or hire a bike on site). The not so energetic can catch a bus from outside the campsite. The well laid out campsite offers a mix of level grass and hardstand pitches. There are newly refurbished toilet and shower facilities, a washing up area, children’s play area and good dog walking.
Off site Canterbury is a city packed with history, heritage and culture. It has a stunning cathedral and the ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martin’s Church and castle. It also has an eclectic mix of specialist shops, independent retailers, bars and restaurants.
Head to the coast for Whitstable with its trendy harbour and July Oyster Festival. The more traditional Herne-Bay has two miles of seafront adorned with colourful beach huts and a pier. The quaint Victorian town of Broadstairs with its Punch and Judy shows and donkey rides is a contrast to the more cosmopolitan habour side Ramsgate noted for its pavement cafes and waterside bars.
Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

The site was kept clean and tidy by the friendly staff. The site has good access to Canterbury by bus. Waste management was inconvenient, bins only by the front gate and no scraps bin when washing up.

Site is serviced by a reasonable bus service or only 30 minute walk to Canterbury.
On site dog walking area is good with access to the pear orchard where the dogs can run free within reason. Only a few selfish inconsiderate dog owners have left their dogs mess behind, on the whole it's dog mess free. Other early morning dog walking option is through the golf course car park and on to the old military training area, where your dogs can run free, again pretty much dog mess free!!
Good easy walking in the area, 10 miles to Herne Bay (go via Fordwich to avoid the landfill site) and there's a pleasant walk to Whitstable along the Crab and Winkle link (there's a downloadable leaflet).
A walk to Rough Common and Blean woods is worth the effort, although if you've got dogs with you, you'll find you're restricted to the main cut.
Pubs; George and Dragon at Fordwich 1.5miles
Blean Tavern 5 miles
In Canterbury we liked the Westgate (home of Bishops Finger); Two Sawyers (dog friendly);
The Black Griffin (earthy) and the Cricketers both of which you can sit out on the pavement and watch the weird and wonderful pass by.
On the whole a great place to spend a few days.
