    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 wild life.

A small but lovely site the staff are friendly and helpful.

This review is for Folkestone

A small but lovely site the staff are friendly and helpful. The access is via a steep narrow road with some small passing places. No caravans are permitted on site due to steepness of access. From the site the beach is only a 2 minute walk away. Likewise you can follow the cliff path into Folkstone which takes about 40 minutes. Locals tend to wild camp (Tents only) on the beach during hot spells with some spending the night time fishing etc. The facilities are very clean and tidy the pitches well manicured and the grass short and well mowed. We noted a number of both German and Dutch motorhomes due to the close proximity of The Channel tunnel. Would most certainly use again. Fab little site.

Took advantage of the fishing from the sea wall and enjoyed some success.

This review is for Folkestone

Took advantage of the fishing from the sea wall and enjoyed some success. Walked into Folkestone along the coastal path in about 40 minutes. Some nice shops in the town centre. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Small site shop sells essential items but best to take supplies with you. The facility blocks are a little dated but were spotlessly clean and the water was hot. Pitches are a decent size and the site has a peaceful and friendly feel. We enjoyed morning and evening walks along the beach with the dog. A very relaxing few days. We will definitely be back to this site.

Long drive with steep inclines - more signs to confirm on right track could help.

This review is for Folkestone

Long drive with steep inclines - more signs to confirm on right track could help. Deep potholes at start of drive, if full of water could hide a problem. Steep incline and narrow road plus locals park to get to public beach. Bikes only help one way - in! Still recommend for a visit. We had our van turned slightly – so got the sun all day and when vans opposite left – the view was exceptional. Watching shipping helps if you have good binoculars.

We almost gave up getting there because access is down a long narrow lane.

This review is for Folkestone

We almost gave up getting there because access is down a long narrow lane. We thought we had got lost. Well worth the access for peace and quiet next to a beach. Long walks beside the sea along some sort of concrete pathway.
