Fabulous campsite. Have stayed here 3 times now. The owners are lovely, friendly and welcoming and the farm is peaceful. We braved the cold weather in April and were rewarded with camping under the cherry trees in full bloom and clear starry nights. If you're looking for a quiet, idyllic site, with spotless facilities close to many walks, this is the place for you. Easy drive out to the North Kent coast to enjoy the delights of Whitstable, and very close to Canterbury We'll hopefully be returning again later in the season.

We stayed at Hatchers Farm for five nights in late August/Early September, 2019. What an absolutely lovely site! We've camped on lots of working farms and this one is a gem. The showers are hot, the loos and washing up area (with washing up liquid and bowls) are cleaned throughout the day and evening, and there's a table with colouring books and crayons for children. There are chairs to wait on if it's busy, fridges and charging points, and a mirror where you can plug a hairdryer in. (I haven't seen that often on farm campsites). The pitches are lovely. We camped in the cherry orchard, just a short walk to the loos and showers, and two beautiful geese ran to the fence of their pen to greet us every time we went past. Next to the geese is a forest of beautiful sunflowers. There are chickens (in a pen) and fresh eggs available to buy, along with chutney and jam. At night, all you can hear is the occasional plane going over. The other campers were considerate and respectful of the si...

About us 
We are a traditional family run Kentish market garden farm in the peaceful village of Preston, central to Canterbury, Whitstable, Dover, Ramsgate and Sandwich. On the farm we grow cherries, plums and a large variety of vegetables for supply to local shops and restaurants. We can supply campers with our fresh seasonal fruit, veg and eggs. Within 500m of the farm we are lucky to have a local shop, butcher, garden centre/cafe and a very friendly pub, The Half Moon and Seven Stars, which serves good food and has occasional live music.

Our generously sized pitches are sited amongst our traditional cherry orchard, which blossoms in Spring and is leafy and full of fruit in Summer. The orchard is bounded with high Kentish hedges of hawthorn and alder, which give protection from the wind and a peaceful ambience. The toilets and showers are in the old pigsty block and there are separate eco-friendly urinals. To the front of the pigsty block there are three kitchen sinks, one larder fridge, two fridge/freezers and phone charging facilities. 

We can also supply fire pits and logs for a small charge, but do not allow fires directly on the grass. Use of fires is at campers own risk to personal property. 

Places of interest  
There are a significant number of places of interest within easy reach. There are numerous footpaths criss-crossing our area that lead to surrounding villages through woods and along rivers, including the Wantsum Walk and the Saxon Shore Way.  We are situated on National Cycle Route 1 with Stodmarsh National Nature Reserve is but a mile away. Canoewild is available at nearby Grove Ferry or perhaps you might like to catch the riverbus down to Richborough castle or all the way to Sandwich (summers only). Wingham Wildlife ParkHowletts Animal Park and WildWood are all nearby, as are the beaches of Margate and Broadstairs, famous for their golden sands and seafront entertainment.   

Local to us there are a several vineyards and cider producers plus numerous country inns serving excellent local food and ales. For historic interest Richborough, Deal, Walmer and Dover castles are well worth a visit, as are the towers at Reculver which were used by Barnes Wallis to perfect his famous bouncing bomb. The old Ramsgate tunnels are an amazing feat of engineering over 3 miles long, but pre-booking is essential or have a relaxing day out in the medieval towns of Sandwich or Canterbury.
