Overview

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.

This review is for Oldbury Hill

Very quiet & secluded site, ideal for a quiet country retreat although facilities are just a small shop, brick bbq (1) & toilets/shower blocks. Small play area with swings/slide for younger children, but the staff made it for us - lovely people. Fab National Trust woodland all around to explore, and the pitches are nicely spaced. Staff ran an Easter Egg Hunt & it was great fun :)

My second visit to Olbury Hill this time with Granddaughters.

This review is for Oldbury Hill

My second visit to Olbury Hill this time with Granddaughters. As mentiond before this site does slope and on my last visit caravans sited across the slope,now caravans sited down the slope making it easier to manage even if front of caravan quite high.Very quiet, even though I was the weekend before Easter. Toilet block hasn't changed much and surely an upgrade is required soon.Elsan disposal point up a flight of stairs which is not ideal.Whist the site is not wooded this surrounding woods are ideal for a walk. New wardens very helpful and cheerful,even though I was the last booked unit that day. Access is via a narrow lane,and take a wide swing in, if towing a van. Would I use it again, yes, for peace and quite, but surely the Club could improve the toilet facilities somewhat and replace fallen fencing.

To continue.

This review is for Oldbury Hill

To continue. The site is in dire need of improvement the toilet and shower block is disgusting and needs to be replaced with a new modern block. On talking to the wardens the club has been promising to upgrade the site for the last 3 seasons. I am ashamed to say I am a member of the club if they can't be bottered to do somthing about this site , but they keep putting up the charges.

Some pitches are more sloping than others, so some difficulty in levelling may be experienced.

This review is for Oldbury Hill

Some pitches are more sloping than others, so some difficulty in levelling may be experienced. There is a bus stop at the end of the lane. Igtham mote is nearby and Knol park in Sevenoaks. The local pub encourages campers, offering 25% discount off food. Calvert was good! Vouchers available from site shop. Campsite is run by friendly, knowledgeable staff, who keep the site clean and tidy. Washing blocks consist of washing up and laundry areas as well as toilet and washing cubicles, only one shower in each facility. Rather chilly after showering as no apparent heating, (we were there in early April) but hey ho it is camping. The site us fairly remote so would advise stocking up before pitching up, although the site shop does carry essentials As the half a mile entrance road is fairly narrow, it is suggested that arrivals are after 1pm to avoid meeting people leaving at the usual departure tines.We thoroughly enjoyed our few days at Oldbury Hill, thank you.
