Overview

This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.
Whilst the majority of Certificated Sites do permit children, please be aware that this site has chosen to be Adults Only.

This rural quiet adults-only site has beautiful views across the valley with a walk to picturesque Tenterden known as The Jewel of the Weald with the KESR steam railway. Village of St. Michaels is one mile away and the historic town of Rye is eleven. Lake onsite with carp you can feed, and a woodland walk for dogs on leads or Forestry Commission woodland 0.5 mile away. There are 11 hook-ups, 9 hardstands with roads, and camping in our rustic woodland pitches and field. Toilets and showers onsite. WE DO TAKE ALL MOTORHOMES & RVS. Visit Bodiam, Leeds and Hever Castles, Sissinghurst, Great Dixter and Batemans Gardens, Historic Sandwich, Canterbury Cathedral, Battle and Hastings plus The Romney Hythe and Dymchurch miniature railway. Our site is only 45 minutes from Eurotunnel and Dover. Known for the various birds that inhabit our wolds, including Nightingales, Woodpeckers, Tree Creepers, Finches etc. Dungeness and Rye Harbour nature reserves are often visited.

Nice site fairly close to amenities and Pubs etc,. Unfussy but with all you need.

This review is for The Gate Lodge

Nice site fairly close to amenities and Pubs etc,. Unfussy but with all you need. We stayed in our small teardrop trailer in the 'wild camping' area, one of 6 pitches available but they are not really suitable for a big towed van and have no hook up. We had only planned to stay for 4 nights but found it so homely we stayed for longer. The owners have a strict no children policy and dogs must always be on the lead, both big pluses for us. We hope to visit again, lovely part of the world.

Lovely quiet site down a country lane.

This review is for The Gate Lodge

Lovely quiet site down a country lane. Loved this site for its peacefulness, woodland walk ( dogs on leads) and feeding the fish!! There is a woodland walk further up the road that is public land for dogs to run free - beware the black muddy stinking pond! Tenterden is a lovley town with many unusual shops - fortunately no space in the car to buy anything too big! Recommend Honey Bees for food ( flatbreads to die for) and dog friendly.

This review is for The Gate Lodge

This is a really lovely site - there is an interesting woodland walk and it's good to be able to feed the carp - and it's a bit different, having "rooms" for The facilities aren't luxury but perfectly adequate. Richard is a lovely guy who made us feel very welcome
