    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

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

There are several stalls selling fresh fish in Folkestone. Hythe has good greengrocer shops and fishmongers, all selling local produce. A Farmers’ Market is held at Capel-le-Ferne.

This was a gem of a site. The pictures say it as it is.

This review is for Folkestone

This was a gem of a site. The pictures say it as it is. Had a fab location on second day when we moved to a pitch with uninterrupted sea views. Walked into Folkestone itself along beach path, travelled to Canterbury which had a park and ride for motorhome, and then Dover to see the cliffs and ferryport. One day climbed the cliff path to see the Battle of Britain Memorial site. Facilities were as standard with bigger than average shower cubicles. Only one gripe it was quite a walk from the hard standing pitch to the shower . Found out on last day that there was a shower area by reception which was kept closeddue to huge volume of work for the staff. Smalll shop with basic needs but BIG WELCOME form staff eho were always passing back and forth with a friendly greeting .Thank you both

Great for walking, the sea views are amazing. Not far from Folkestone but far enough to feel like you're in the country side by the sea.

This review is for Folkestone

Folkstone is one of my favourite sites a gem in fact ! You follow a winding Tarmac path with some pots holes so look out ! Then you come across an amazing view of the site which is adjacent to the beach . The site is well kept and the staff create a relaxed atmosphere . There are plenty of pitches for camper caravan and tents almost all with beautiful views of the channel . You can walk along the bottom of the cliffs as far as Dover or walk into Folkstone an artists community with lots of nice places to eat fish and sea food along near the harbour , Folkstone is also getting well known as an artists fraternity so lots to see and experience in that respect . If you walk further along the esplanade and up a hill you come to the original grand hotel where you can have tea a must ! There's lots of sandy beaches when the tides out so all can play at castle construction! A truly lovely area of the county and the campsite is a real gem ! Book it now
