    Top site for beaches

Cliff-top site popular with birdwatchers, sea anglers and Channel hoppers.

Our Folkestone Club campsite is ideally located whether you’re holidaying in Kent or taking a day trip to France by Channel Tunnel. The campsite enjoys a dramatic cliff-top position with stunning views of the sea and the chalky cliffs of the Dover-Folkestone Heritage Coast.

The campsite is surrounded by the trees and shrubbery of The Warren, a local Nature Reserve and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Nature trails weave their way through The Warren, an important habitat for many rare plants and animals. Guided walks run from April through until September.

This peaceful campsite is well laid out with a mix of grass and hardstand pitches. The excellent facilities include a parent and child room with a baby bath, shower, and a highchair with harness.

Walkers and dog owners will enjoy the walks from the campsite along the cliffs and beach. You can walk into Folkestone and Dover using the footpath from the site too.

Folkestone has a cobbled High Street, harbour, promenade and a sandy beach next to the harbour. Dover, with its world-famous white cliffs, has an interesting castle.

South of the campsite is the seaside resort of Hythe, while Romney Marsh boasts three of the finest family-friendly sandy beaches in Kent – Dymchurch, Greatstone, and St Mary’s Bay. The shingle beach at Dungeness is backed by an RSPB Nature Reserve visitor centre and the area is brimming with plant and wildlife.

We've always wanted to use this site for many years and it is only now that we have a motorhome we were able to. As caravans are not allowed to use this site it has been a long time waiting :-) We were welcomed onto site and booked in for our two nights stay quickly and then shown to our pitch, all amenities were well explained including where the sun raises and sets. We have never seen such an abundance of Buddleia growing as it does along this site and coastal area, it is very spectacular. We would highly recommend this site to others and will definitely return in the future.

The access road is in places in dreadful condition and in dire need of repair.

This review is for Folkestone

The access road is in places in dreadful condition and in dire need of repair. It is also way too steep and narrow for towing anything bigger than a small trailer. It is sadly lacking in passing places as well. It is well situated for all sorts of South East Kent amenities and the views of the white cliffs and French coast are stunning in clear weather. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week and will certainly return in the near future.

Difficult approach on final road . Secluded site at virtually the base of the cliff.

This review is for Folkestone

Difficult approach on final road . Secluded site at virtually the base of the cliff. Well managed, tidy, friendly site. Child and dog friendly. Not " pretty " beach , loads of concrete and old iron work but an interesting beach to explore. Not easy to walk into Folkestone , the coastal path is being stored / repaired . Collapse of the prom in the Dover direction means that only Dare Devils will reach any beach on that side, a plank of wood crossing the prom to beach ( about 1/4 to 1/2 mile away ). Nice place to have a relaxing break , friendly campers , helpful staff ( any chance of increasing the shower timer upwards a little , 5 seconds between presses is extremely short ).
