Camp at our secluded site in Kent, the Garden of England.
Our Oldbury Hill Club campsite is located in an idyllic spot within Styants Wood, opposite the Iron Age fort of the same name in Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It is a lovely open, all grass campsite. Pitches are sloping so chocks will be required.
The area is ideal for walkers. Two way-marked circular walks pass over Oldbury Camp, the large Iron Age Hill fort. The hill is now covered with woodland managed by the National Trust. You can also walk from the campsite to Ightham Mote, a medieval moated manor house with a 14-acre garden and restaurant.
It’s a short car journey to Knole, a National Trust run English country house set in a deer park; Penshurst Palace and Gardens; the National Trust run Chartwell, family home of Winston Churchill; the beautiful Emmetts Garden and Hever Castle and Gardens.
You can also visit London by train from Borough Green and Sevenoaks stations.

The site slopes and blocks and ramps are needed for most caravans. Surrounding all sides of the small site is mixed dense woodland.
Although the ground slopes it also gets easily waterlogged making mud a big problem keeping the 'van clean inside. At night the site is dark and very quiet. The toilet block is located at the top of the site and has many steps up to the door. The trees hide the block from view.
Old bury is ideal for those visiting Winston Churchill's house at Chartwell. I consider this site is ideal for a short break. The lack of hard standing makes staying here in inclement weather a muddy holiday.

Lovely site set in woods. Site wardens very friendly and helpful. The access is down a narrow road but did not cause us a problem (our caravan is 7 meters long). The shower facilities are in the woods and are quite basic with no heating, but they are kept very clean by the currents site wardens. We had a lovely stay here and would happily recommend a visit. Lots of National Trust properties in the area to visit. Thanks Tracy and Di for a lovely stay.

we tried this site on way home just to see. not a good experience..Access to site narrow road through trees got a scratched window..On arrival site was soaked a lot of pitches shut down by muddy conditions..Only had choice of 1 pitch, because of ground conditions we got stuck trying to level..after getting covered in mud we were offered a space on the road..why not for 1 night,,motor-homes seem to be a problem here..After pitching we explored for amenities, not a happy sight, messy wooden buildings set in trees up a dozen leaf covered steps, dark and dank at night with no heating, but kept clean,,the slope of the site makes pitching of large units a bit precarious,,site more suited to tents and pack-packers,,,we wont go again,,,,

Great wardens that's the positive. Toilets badly need updating they were clean but dingy and chilly. Site would benefit from being terraced and some hardstanding. In a good area with lots of national trust properties close by so all the improvements would be great.
