Fantastic campsite in a very good location. Huge, private pitches at an affordable price. Good clean toilets, showers and washing up area with washing up liquid and cloths. Fire pits and wood provided for a small charge. Three fridges onsite for keeping food cold. Highly recommend a visit. Colouring for the kids was appreciated too.

A wonderful place to camp. You get plenty of space to pitch up in among the trees and it is very peaceful. Facilities are kept really clean and the owners are friendly and fun. There is often a table of free veg for the taking and fresh eggs for a quid or so. Unspoiled, quiet and you can get a fire pit to keep you warm!

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 pig-sty block and there are separate eco-friendly urinals. To the front of the pig-sty 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.
