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 a couple of miles south of the city – within walking distance (or hire a bike on site). The not so energetic can catch a bus from outside the campsite. The well laid out campsite offers a mix of level grass and hardstand pitches. There are newly refurbished 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. The more traditional Herne-Bay has two miles of seafront adorned with colourful beach huts and a pier. The quaint Victorian town of Broadstairs with its Punch and Judy shows and donkey rides is a contrast to the more cosmopolitan habour 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 site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

A site with easy access by bus to Canterbury from right outside the site gate.

This review is for Canterbury

A site with easy access by bus to Canterbury from right outside the site gate. This city has so much to offer in terms of culture and archetecture together with superb restaurants and extensive shopping opportunities. My wife and I wished we had more time to spend here on this trip but will be sure to extend our next visit to enable us to fully explore all that is on offer here. Thanks again to the fabulous staff.

This review is for Canterbury

Our second stay at this club site, use it when visiting friends in Herne Bay. Friendly welcome and well laid out pitches. Good offsite walk for dogs across road by golfclub as well as on-site dog walk. Peaceful setting. Easy walk across golf course and fields to the excellent `George and Dragon' pub in Fordwich, which is dog friendly too. Will definitely be back.
