(Please mention

The site is situated within some of the loveliest countryside in Kent, in the pleasant village of Martin Mill which offers amenities and places to eat, just a short way from the south coast. Deal, Dover and Walmer are only a short drive away and of course this area is the main access point for trips over to Calais, the gateway to France.

On offer are 200 touring pitches and 15 hardstanding areas. Premium pitches are available with services and EHUs, or standard pitches which offer back-to-basics camping on grass only with water supplied close by.
