    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.

This site is currently without hot water due to a boiler breakdown. The water should be back on by Saturday 19th March 2016

This review is for Folkestone

Stayed two nights. The location is idyllic. Perfect for walking on the beach with a dog. The access road is a challenge, single track with a few passing places. Steep in places. The site itself is lovely. Very close to beach Facilities were well.kept but only to showers meant a queue is likely. The walk to town along the beach is a challenge best done in walking boots. The walk along the road is ok but in heavy rain is impassible on foot without wellington boots due to a section which floods. Highly recommended.

This review is for Folkestone

We wanted a relaxing weekend and that is exactly what we got. The site is wonderfully located just above the beach with easy access to it. The site was lovely and clean, well cared for and managed by friendly and helpful staff or were also quite discreet. Have to admit we hardly left the site because there was plenty of lovely walks to do from it, but there is a long list of things to do for several more visits. So thanks Martin and Claire for a lovely stay and for April the weather was lovely (except for one day!! but that wasn't your fault).

This review is for Folkestone

Site was opposite beach not far to walk,if you wanted to walk there was plenty of climbing, at least an hour to walk into Folkestone town all up hill, good place to go fishing with easy access, if you don't want to walk into Folkstone take a taxi it cost �6.00.
