Overview

Camp at our secluded site in Kent, the Garden of England.

Our Oldbury Hill Club campsite is located in an idyllic spot within Styants Wood, opposite the Iron Age fort of the same name in Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It is a lovely open, all grass campsite. Pitches are sloping so chocks will be required.

The area is ideal for walkers. Two way-marked circular walks pass over Oldbury Camp, the large Iron Age Hill fort. The hill is now covered with woodland managed by the National Trust. You can also walk from the campsite to Ightham Mote, a medieval moated manor house with a 14-acre garden and restaurant.

It’s a short car journey to Knole, a National Trust run English country house set in a deer park; Penshurst Palace and Gardens; the National Trust run Chartwell, family home of Winston Churchill; the beautiful Emmetts Garden and Hever Castle and Gardens.

You can also visit London by train from Borough Green and Sevenoaks stations.

This site is on quite a slope which was actually OK but you need to be prepared.

This review is for Oldbury Hill

This site is on quite a slope which was actually OK but you need to be prepared. If is a nice small site, beautiful location. Access is via a narrow lane which is OK as long as you don't meet anyone coming the other way! The shower block has a corrugated plastic roof which does not fit well so it is freezing and the hot water can only be described as off cold. Maybe OK in the height of summer - we were just glad on the 2nd morning after trying the shower block we were able to shower in our motorhome. This site is not family friendly. There were only 4 units on site. We knew one couple and met another family with 2 small boys (we have a7 yr old son). The site has a no ball games rule but the 3 boys (all under 8) wanted to play with a ball - there was a large area away from all the units were they could have played without disturbing anyone, they went and asked the site manager if it would be OK and got a flat 'no'. There is no way we would have even considered asking if the site had been busy but 3 out of the 4 units knew each other and there was plenty of space - a rather disappointing response. We were walking our dogs and got a call at 11:45 to remind us that we should be off site by noon. we missed the call because the phone signal was bad but was net on return to site by the site manager at 11:55 .... again rather petty considering the site was so empty! so 'no' we would not return, despite the well kept site and beautiful location.

This review is for Oldbury Hill

Have stayed at this site a few times this year 2014 and have to give the biggest appraisal to the site managers Martin & Eleanor for all their hard work they put into keeping this site so clean & tidy throughout the season. Always a warm welcome upon arrival and nothing was ever too much to assist you with for you to enjoy your stay. Small shop onsite for your emergencies like milk and eggs etc and a great carvery at the end of the road that's priced well too. The ground is sloped and although only grass pitches they are very stable once pitched. The toilets and shower blocks are cleaned regular every day also. Lovely quiet site with birdsong every morning. Will miss this lovely couple but wish them the very best for their next season adventure. Thank you both kindly for everything and hope to see you soon at another CCC site. Paul & Carol
