Alan Rogers Review

Folkestone Camping & Caravanning Club site is ideally located whether you are holidaying in Kent or taking a day trip to France by Channel Tunnel. The site enjoys a dramatic cliff-top position with views of the sea and the Dover-Folkestone coast's chalky cliffs. Walkers and dog owners will enjoy the walks from the site along the cliffs and beach. You can walk into Folkestone and Dover using the footpath from the site too. The site does not accept Touring Caravans. The site is not suitable if you need to leave for an early ferry, as the site gate does not open until 7 am, and there is no overnight parking. The site has 60 grass or hardstanding pitches, most with an electric hook-up point.

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

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 site 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. An RSPB Nature Reserve visitor centre backs the shingle beach at Dungeness, and the area is brimming with plant and wildlife. The site is surrounded by The Warren's trees and shrubbery, 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.
