Overview

  • Campsites next to or within walking distance of a beach

    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.

This review is for Folkestone

It's quite a small site on the coast , as previous review we were told about showers ,only one block had working showers and they were warm, also one entrance to block was blocked by a large group of campers, we were quite squashed in on the first night with tents either side and one camper in front. Due to school hols it's was busy with kids on scooters and bike going quite fast, so wouldn't go in half term, I thought for the 2night stay it was quite expensive ,as I pay less at caravan club for more space and more showers blocks ,

This review is for Folkestone

The access to the site is very steep as previous reviewers have mentioned. Once reached, though, the site is small but well laid out with fantastic sea views. A few things spoilt the overall experience: the showers were out of order in one block, meaning 2 male and 2 female showers for the whole site. The notices said that the this was being rectified urgently, but I saw no sign of it, and the notices had been there for some time. The track to the beach was littered with dog poo. The back of the beach was festooned with litter, cans, glass and paper. The back part of the beach was inhabited by a large group of 'offsite campers', who also seemed to be using the site facilities. In the evenings a large group of children ran wild throughout the site, completely unsupervised by their parents or the site wardens. Apart from the shrieking and shouting, bicycles and scooters were being ridden at breakneck speed in semi darkness, which could have caused serious injury. Despite the above, i would visit the site again, although perhaps not in school holidays.

We enjoyed as a family with a dog the nature trail next to the site and along the waters edge.with Folkestone harbour a 10min drive away, lower leas lift and the steam train in hythe a 15min drive too, there was enough to do with the dog too on 4 days camping.don't leave without sampling fish and chips on the beach or cockels in the harbour.

Access to site is via a single track road with very big pot holes - drive with great caution.

Access to site is via a single track road with very big pot holes - drive with great caution. Lovely views from site. Facilities a bit dated but clean & useable. Wardens friendly. Used for a one night stop over on way to Europe. Euro tunnel only 10 mins drive away.
