    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 wild life.

Access and SatNav Advice

Please note that this site is not suitable if you need to leave for an early ferry, as the site gate does not open until 7am, and there is no parking outside the site. No touring caravans on this site. Long narrow access road to site.

Worth Noting

Sea Fishing from beach. The site overlooks a great shingle beach – the kids will love it. The site is the ideal location for bird watching and walking.

WiFi

This review is for Folkestone

Wow!! - this is such a lovely site! The site is very clean, tidy and well kept with some views to die for overlooking The English Channel. Access is by Motor home only because of the steep hill and sharp bends but really not a problem. Shops (Tesco Express) 5 minutes drive and Harbour less than 10 minutes drive. The walk along the sea front and along the chalky cliffs was so lovely, we just cannot wait to go again. Well done to the very nice extremely hard working staff who run this excellent site and thank you - see you soon!

Just returned from our first visit to this lovely site.

This review is for Folkestone

Just returned from our first visit to this lovely site. We arrived late due to traffic incidents but the site manager was most welcoming and helpful, even lending us an extension lead to reach the hook up point. He offered us a lovely pitch on the top of a grassy bank which was secluded and idyllic and on the edge of the cliff, albeit behind some bushes. The views from the site were beautiful, the site was extremely well kept and the grass was better tended than the golf course up the road ! The toilet blocks ( 2 off ) were faultless in their cleanliness. There was also two dishwashing stations and a small shop on site. Access to the site from the main road is a little hair raising due to the narrowness of the road and some rather large potholes, but this is obviously beyond the campsites control. Went to bed every night listening to the sea and woke up listening to the sea.....wonderful ! Access to the beach is a 2 min walk and once down there you can walk along to Folkestone town and harbour. It's about a 45 min walk and not for the less mobile as it involves some uphill trail walking but it's a lovely route. Plenty of shops, pubs and more beaches. A ride on the Leas Lift up the cliff for �1 is worth a go, if only for the views. Whilst the beach isn't the most beautiful of beaches it's interesting as its part of the Heritage Coast and there is plenty to see and explore. We will definitely return as the site was superb and so were the site managers.
