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).

Good to have a bus stop near the site entrance that linked the users to a full service to all parts of East Kent. Plenty of places to visit and things to do. Overall a very enjoyable break.

This review is for Canterbury

We had a great time at Canterbury but this was marred by the fact that when moving onto Chichester club site my wife discovered she had lost her engagement ring. However on arrival at Chichester whilst setting up there Dave Boulton the warden approached to ask if we had lost anything at Canterbury. I told him my wife had lost her ring and he said that Nikky (?) at Canterbury had been in touch to say she had found the ring where we had been pitched. Nikky arranged to forward the ring to us at Canterbury by recorded delivery and declined our offer of reimbursement for p and p - we duly received the ring on 30/6/15. To say we are grateful is an understatement but if you could pass on our thanks to all concerned we would very much appreciate it.

Use the bus to get to Canterbury cheaper than parking. Multi museum pass good value. If going near river make sure you have mosquito repellant on they bite!!! Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and multi cultural food. It deserves its heritage status so visit and be proud of what you see.

This review is for Canterbury

Friendly, helpful staff and well placed pitches with excellent amenities We, now, choose a grass pitch as hard standings are "solid" and extremely difficult to get even rock pegs in for awning. Brilliant for Campervans as excellent bus services to everywhere (Margate/Ramsgate/Whitstable/Dover/Folkstone etc) and Leeds Castle/White cliffs/Churchills home in driving distance..Excellent
