  • Campsites next to or within walking distance of a beach

    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 wildlife.

Worth Noting

No Touring Caravans on site. 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 overnight parking. Limited parking for visitors or for second cars. Long narrow access road.

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.

Super little site, close to beach. 3 mile walk into Folkestone.

This review is for Folkestone

Super little site, close to beach. 3 mile walk into Folkestone. Good fishing and plenty of dog walks. Staff were really nice and chatty. Lots of European travellers coming and going. This place is definitely more than just an overnight stop for the Channel Tunnel. Warning caravans are not allowed!!

Stayed bank holiday weekend - site was full but you wouldn't think it! No queues for showers...

This review is for Folkestone

Stayed bank holiday weekend - site was full but you wouldn't think it! No queues for showers or toilets. Finding site was easy - yes the lane is narrow for a short while but we managed it in our campervan. Walked into Folkestone - took 40 minutes. We then got a train to Dover and walked back from Dover - worth it. Will definitely be returning.

Beautiful site with simple but immaculately clean facilities.

This review is for Folkestone

Beautiful site with simple but immaculately clean facilities. Great views of the cliffs and sea. Close to beach and you can smell the sea. Great for walkers, young families and couples or anyone who likes nature. Take plenty of supplies as not near shops. Great getaway from it all. Thoroughly recommend.
