This review is for Folkestone

This is a lovely site, clean, peaceful and a great place to just sit and watch the world go by as well as the ferries from Dover to Calais. We were very lucky with the weather, so the views across the channel to France were excellent. The beach has remnants of WW2 fortifications and remains of an old railway line. The only issue, is the access, this is a very narrow single track road and local people do park their cars along here when visiting the beach, thus making it difficult to pass. There are hedges either side that can be overgrown and do hide the odd metal post! As the road does not belong to the site, not sure who is responsible for it's upkeep. We will most definitely be returning to this site again.

The photo of the site is quite accurate.

This review is for Folkestone

The photo of the site is quite accurate.However the access is quite off-putting, very steep with no easy passing points for oncoming traffic. The site itself has pleasant views if your not stuck under a tree. Walking is also good along the coastal paths and dogs would love it. We took the path to Folkstone to visit the Harbour and do some shopping and found Folkstone big disappointment. This site is ideally situated for a stopover for the channel tunnel.
