Overview

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.

This review is for Canterbury

We love this site and have visited often. Only two comments. We were parked in the Paddock and visited friends old years night at the bottom near the storage. When we left it was pitch black and even with a torch deviated from the path many times, could really do with overhead lighting. Secondly a shortcut to the bus stop has no pathway once pass the visitor parking and in wet weather the grass is wet muddy and slppery. Could not a cheap path be created with gravel?.

This review is for Canterbury

We visited for the first time for New Years Eve for a couple of nights. We had requested a pitch away from others if possible as we have a teething baby and did not wish to disturb anyone and despite being full a perfect pitch had been reserved for us. We had a lovely welcome and I was touched the next day when the wardens remembered us and asked how our dog was (we had been late arriving due to an unexpected trip to the vet) and also enquiring as to whether we required use of the baby room. The site was immaculate and well laid out and the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. We walked into Canterbury and it was an easy 20 min approx walk. Even coming back up the hill with a fully laden pushchair was not an effort so don't be put off walking! There is a bus stop outside though if you can't face it! It seems a shame that the site appears to be used for people using it as a stop over before heading onto France as it really is very nice. There are pylons (which usually puts me off) but to be honest they were not noticeable and didn't bother me. Despite being so close to Canterbury and being next to the hospital, it really does feel very rural, particularly at the back of the site. We were very impressed and shall be returning!
