    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.

Access and SatNav Advice

Please note that 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 parking outside the site. No touring caravans on this site. Long narrow access road to site.

Worth Noting

Sea Fishing from beach. The site overlooks a great shingle beach – the kids will love it. The site is the ideal location for bird watching and walking.

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.

Avoid this site at all costs.

This review is for Folkestone

Avoid this site at all costs. We went for a motorhome stopover to fill up and empty before going through the tunnel. First it was hard to find, not signed properly. The lady on the phone did give detailed instructions but we still missed it twice. The so-called access road is a joke, with no passing places and steep drops on one side. On the way out a car was coming down and we almost didn't get past. Two motorhomes would never make it. Backing up would put your life at risk. The 'facilities' were ridiculous. A stupid protuberance on the grey water grid meant we couldn't manoeuvre over it. The fresh water tap pointed upwards! I belatedly noticed some more conventional facilities in the next compound, which had not been pointed out, and got rid of the grey water there, but I would not have wished to take drinking water from the other side of the same small post as the smell of the drain was awful, as if it had been used for the chemical toilet. That wouldn't have surprised me as the grid on the motorhome station was not easy to use. I can't imagine why the club designer didn't realise that motorhomes come in all shapes and sizes and with a variety of fittings. Even without all that, I wouldn't have wanted to stay there. It was crowded and miles from anywhere. How on Earth would you go shopping? Go elsewhere. Anywhere elsewhere.

Staff always welcoming and helpful. Toilet and showers very clean. Amazing coastal views and yes we have seen a few wild campers in beach in summer but they have always left it clean and tidy. Dogs allowed on beach all year. We cannot find any negatives thank you camping club.
