Overview

A great campsite to explore Canterbury, with a bus stop outside the site entrance.

City, coast and countryside – you can take your pick if you’re basing yourself at our Canterbury Club campsite. Although a popular stopover for those travelling to or from France, this campsite offers the ideal base for exploring Kent’s coast and country.

The campsite lies just one mile south of the city and is easily accessible on foot or by bike (there is cycle parking and Park and Pedal available in Canterbury), or you could take one of the frequent buses from the stop right outside. The well laid out campsite offers a mix of level grass and hardstanding pitches. There are toilet and shower facilities, a washing up area, children’s play area and good dog walking

Off site Canterbury is a city packed with history, heritage and culture. It has a stunning cathedral and the ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martin’s Church and castle. It also has an eclectic mix of specialist shops, independent retailers, bars and restaurants.

Head to the coast for Whitstable, with its trendy harbour and July Oyster Festival. For a great family day out, visit Howlett’s wild animal park (just five minutes’ drive from the site) or one of the nearby Kent seaside towns and beaches including the more traditional Herne-Bay, which has two miles of seafront adorned with colourful beach huts and a pier. Or you could head to the quaint Victorian town of Broadstairs with its Punch and Judy shows and donkey rides, which is a contrast to the more cosmopolitan harbour side Ramsgate noted for its pavement cafes and waterside bars.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this campsite, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

Worth Noting

At times Sat Navs are not reliable. Do not approach the site via the narrow lanes, use the map provided or the post code CT1 1TW that will take you to the golf club opposite the site.

WiFi

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

Other members have said it already, and I totally agree - this is without doubt the best Camping & Caravan Club site that we have visited! The toilets and shower facilities are virtually spotless, they really have the wow factor, they were incredibly clean every time we used them. Staff on arrival were extremely welcoming, lovely smiley happy people, who clearly enjoy and take pride in what they do. Not only on arrival though, for the whole duration of our stay. We arrived on the 13th November, but no bad luck for us, the weather was very kind thankfully. As we were leaving on Friday morning, two of the lady staff were going round to each caravan and motorhome dressed up as Pudsey's, making a collection for Children in Need! The site itself is just outside Canterbury, a short ten minute bus ride, the bus stop is almost outside the side gate. Canterbury is a smashing place to visit, even in November, it really was buzzing. Lots of nice shops and places to eat! What makes the Canterbury site so special though, is the staff. Always smiling, very friendly and always ready to help in whatever way they could. We will definitely be back in the Summer, if only to see the staff again!!

This review is for Canterbury

Stayed for a few days in November and what a very pleasant site it is. The Wardens were very polite and helpful. The site is within easy walking distance from Canterbury which has excellent shopping and visitor attractions. However our only gripe was the size of the pitches and proximity of adjacent vehicles. The hardstanding is only 4M wide with a grass verge of 4M either side of the hardstanding. We were in a Motorhome and either side of us were caravans with awnings AND cars parked on the grass adjacent to us. The grass verge we understood is supposed to be a firebreak. However, there were only 3M between our van and the parked cars on both sides of us, in fact if we had chosen to put our awning out we would have been almost touching one of the parked cars. We have experienced this on other C&CC sites and feel this is unacceptable encroachment, particularly as there is a huge carpark on this site. Also, the weather was very wet the grass has now been turned into a quagmire where the cars were parked. It's such a shame the club allows this.

This review is for Canterbury

This was our first trip out in our new caravan, we were nervous towing for the first time but the site is very easy to get to and the lane and entrance wide enough for first timers. Our hardstanding pitch was easy to reverse on to and set up on for the first time and we enjoyed testing the van out, we also were close to the facilities which are warm and clean and the kids enjoyed using. The showers were nice and warm and clean. There are many local attractions to see and we took a few hours out to go to the spitfire museum which has a lovely cafe and free museum. We will definitely be coming back to go visit more attractions.
