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.

We used our National Trust membership to visit properties that were near - Ightham Mote, Chartwell and
Knole. All excellent with lovely grounds, food and picnic spots. The campsite itself is situated in National Trust woodland which has several marked walks.
Locally there is a farm shop with an excellent butcher. Closed on a Monday and restocked on a Tuesday so probably best to visit later on that day.

A good base for National Trust places locally. We visited different NT properties most days including, Chartwell, Sissinghurst, Knole, etc.
There are also local walks around Oldbury Hill itself.
Site itself was quiet, well kept and clean. Site is mainly sloping but manageable with chocks, etc.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
