Alan Rogers Review

Canterbury Camping & Caravanning Club site is situated just off the A257 Sandwich road, about 1.5 miles from the centre of Canterbury and easily accessible by foot, bike or bus. This site is a good base for exploring Canterbury's history and heritage with its wonderful cathedral and the ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey. It also has an eclectic mix of specialist shops, independent retailers, bars and restaurants. The site's location also makes it a good stopover for the Dover ferries and the Folkestone Channel Tunnel terminal. A good sized overnight area for late arrivals can be reached even when the barriers are down. Although the busy A257 is close, there is minimal noise from the traffic. Note: power lines cross the site. There are 180 pitches (some seasonal), 120 with 16A electric hook-ups - some sloping so blocks are advised. Most of the pitches are on well kept grass with hundreds of saplings planted but there are also 65 pitches with hardstanding. The site also has 6 safari tents for hire.

Non-members are welcome and may join on site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

Looking for a visit to the coast? Why not try Whitstable, with its trendy harbour and July Oyster Festival. For a great family day out, visit Howletts Wild Animal Park ( a short drive from the site) or one of the nearby Kent seaside towns and beaches including the more traditional Herne Bay Pier. Or you could head to the quaint Victorian town of Broadstairs with its Punch & Judy shows and donkey rides, alternatively relax at one of the pavement cafes and waterside bars in Ramsgate.

Location

From the A2 take the exit for Canterbury and follow signs for Sandwich (A257). Pass military barracks and turn right into Bekesbourne Lane opposite golf course. Please avoid approaching the site driving through Bekesbourne village as may be suggested by sat navs because lanes are too narrow for touring units.
