    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.

Our only complaint about this site is the showers, you have to push the button for water and then get a ten second scalding with water that is far too hot and there is no way to control the amount or heat of the water. Some dog owners let their pets mess on site but the warden soon cleared it up.

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.
