General

  • Quiet, rural and spacious site on a working farm
  • On the North Downs Way surrounded by fields and woodland
  • Free-range eggs and fresh apple juice for sale

Fancy a peaceful Kentish sojourn, with loads of space for all to run around, and with walks and bike rides all around? Dunn.

Dunn Street Farm is a working farm above the village of Westwell near Ashford, surrounded by hills and woodland. It's a topping stop for hikers and bikers – the 153-mile North Downs Way passes through the farm – and for kids, as there's heaps of space to run around/play games on site and it's about ten miles from the critters of Port Lympne Wild Animal Park.

(Small sorts will likely like a look at the Dunn Street Farm critters too: sheep, cattle and horses in the surrounding fields, and chickens and goats in the paddocks around the farmyard.)

Amenities are simple but clean: loos, showers and washing-up facilities are in the farmyard between the two camping fields.

Guests can buy free-range eggs produced by the farm's chickens and apple juice from the family's fruit farm near Maidstone; for further supplies, Westwell and local pub the Wheel Inn are less than ten minutes' walk away. The villages of Charing and Challock with cafés and shops are within ten minutes' drive.

    Quiet site. Lovely views. Working farm so surrounded by animals.

    Disliked: 

    There were teenage groups staying (all polite!). Had to wait to use the facilities as only two toilets in each male and female and only 3 showers in total.

    Quiet.

    Disliked: 

    Approach road awful, narrow and blind, not suitable for anything bigger than a wheelbarrow.

From the manager...

Yes our site is horrible and I'm a miserable old xxxx. I have no idea why people normally write such nice comments, leave such absurdly generous scores and return to the site time and time again to relive the frightful experience.
Some of the lanes approaching the farm are not suitable for caravans and this is made very clear in the welcome emails I send out. I also provide details of the best route to follow which avoids the narrowest lanes. If you are not able to follow the recommended route without difficulty then you probably shouldn't be on the road towing a caravan.
I wish I could get John Cleese and Connie Booth to write these responses for me.

Just recently left Dunn street Farm after a 14 night ... 13/06/2018

    Just recently left Dunn street Farm after a 14 night stay. Loved it! You have to remember that this is a farm, not a purpose built camp site. Yet despite this showers, dish washing up room, including washing machine are all provided free.

    Set in the lovely countryside of Westwell off the A20 near Ashford the views are beautiful and the site is just far enough away from the village that it is very peaceful.

    As I stayed on Brocks Paddock which is mainly the site for tents you can pitch whereever you want around the outside of the field - much better than having a designated pitch, although I realise that if you book electric hookup you have to have a designated pitch.

    I travel around a lot as I work online mostly and so I will definitely stay here again multple times in the year.

    We loved everything about Dunn Street, the children loved looking at the animals everyday. No vehicles allowed on the field unless loading and unloading. Quite after 10pm, we’ll kept and tidy. Facilities although basic were kept clean at all times. Loved the fact we could buy fresh eggs and Apple juice direct from them. We will certainly be returning.
