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.

A warm welcome awaits all who visit this site.

This review is for Oldbury Hill

A warm welcome awaits all who visit this site. The small shop stocks essentials and also has freeze block to hire. A well laid out site with shower, toilets, washing up, chemical disposal and small laundry tucked away behind trees. Fresh water point in the middle of the field surrounded by mini fenced garden, and great social point as everyone goes to get water at some time. Our visit was meant to be a short one whilst attending grandparents grave at Petham. Unfortunately our car broke down and needed essential repair. Ade one of the site managers helped us find a local garage to do repair as our searches meant we would have to wait for weeks to get down. Oldbury motors did a great job with just a few days wait. Everyone on site was so considerate and offered help to get around. There is a bus service from the end of the lane about a mile walk, not so good if your not mobile. But for those that are there are many woodland walks and various towns and villages to visit. Tonbridge itself has good supply of shops to fit various budgets and it's castle is a lovely backdrop for a picknick. If you like cherries where better to buy them than from the garden of England from one of the roadside stalls. Other local fruits sold depending on season. Look out for pick your own signs, festivals or village fetes as these are enjoyable ways of spending a day in village life. Local pubs serve food as does roadside caf�. On a Friday night in a layby not too far from the site is a mobile pizza van, great for a planned no cook night without having to eat out. Up a hill to the left of the site is a farm shop for meats, good for the bbq, there is a brick built one on site not far from children's play area and table/bench. If being outdoors is all you require for recharging your batteries after a long working week, stay on site use the facilities, make new friends and enjoy. See you all there sometime soon.

We can't fault Oldbury Hill, from the start meeting Adrain who was very welcoming and very pleasant to talk too, and funny, (great guy) we meet his Mrs when I went into the reception and she was lovely and very knowledgeable about the area and things to do, the site is situated on a slope (more in the middle) but this didn't effect the tent and the way we where lying as it gradual it's more flatter at the bottom of the site nearer the enterance, facilities were very clean and the site was faultless well done Adrian hope to see you guys again well done, John and lorraine.

This review is for Oldbury Hill

Slightly hilly site but the manager directed us when driving onto our pitch so that it was as level as could be, just needed chock on one side. He also asked if we wanted a position for the evening sun, which we did and was great. People have commented not enough showers but this did not seem to be a problem for us. We visited Hever Castle which is a fabulous place and spent the whole day there. It is about 20 mins away. We also went strawberry and raspberry picking nearby. You do get the occasional glimse of a spitfire flying overhead, apprently they do pleasure rides from Biggin Hill (if you can afford it!). There are so many pretty villages in the area, it is a pleasure to drive round.

Good access to National trust houses.

This review is for Oldbury Hill

Good access to National trust houses. Excellent local walking territory and most footpaths are shaded. Local pub is fine - not great but it's walkable and serves a wide menu. Pitches are mostly on slopes but site owners have extra chocks so not a big problem. No service point.
