Hill Top Farm: Trees and hedgerow by the pitch

General

  • Off-grid site in a quiet meadow five minutes' drive from Charing
  • 15 minutes' drive from Leeds castle; half an hour from Canterbury
  • 16th-century country inn 10 minutes' walk away for drinks and food

Sometimes all you need is a bit of space… a quiet space in which to set up camp, stoke up a fire and settle in to slumber. (Although maybe a nearby pub wouldn’t go amiss, eh?)

And that’s what you’ll get at Hill Top Farm’s tiny site, an off-grid place so stripped back it doesn’t have any running water, toilets or showers. What it does have is plenty of peace and quiet – your pitch is in the corner of a meadow, accessed via a little country lane (blissfully far from the madding traffic, although the A20 and M20 aren’t that far away for easy ins and outs).

The folks here have made a point of putting you on a level part of the field, and trimming the grass down for straightforward pitching and car parking. If you’ve been propelled here by pedal power you can keep bikes safe and dry in the animal shelter.

And that pub? Well, it’s a mere 10-minute trot to a fab 16th-century country inn for pints and plates. If you’d rather stay plonked in your peaceful place, you’re welcome to sizzle something on a small barbie, or pick up a takeaway from the chippie five minutes away in Lenham.

    What a lovely spot! Peaceful, off the grid, 10 minute walk to the pub and the owner even delivered a wheelbarrow of fire wood (for £10) to keep us warm all night! We will definitely be back

    Lovely peaceful spot once we'd found it. We had a great holiday with trips to beautiful beaches and the nearby pub where the food was superb, especially the home made puddings and suet puddings! Come with a good appetite. Also lovely to have the field all to ourselves.

    Disliked: 

    We were unlucky with the weather and there was some very strong wind the first few days - we needed all our extra tent pegs.

Excellent site, beautiful views and fires allowed.12/08/2020

    We had a whole field to ourselves and a fire pit so we could have a fire, which we did every evening. David was very helpful and supplied us with decent hardwood for burning at a very reasonable price.
    We had a great time, although it’s inland, we went to the beach on the first two days because it was so hot. Tankerton was only about a half hour drive away, you could probably also go to Hythe or Folkestone in roughly the same time frame.
    On the third day, we went for a lovely walk in the woods, there’s a woodland trust place on Monkery Lane, called Longbeech Wood, you can also get to the Wagon & Horses pub via the woods.
    There were a lot of footpaths near the campsite that we would have loved to explore, but on this occasion it was simply too hot to be in the sun for too long.
    We had a huge Sunday lunch at the Bowl Inn which we would all recommend, especially as it was only about a 5 minute walk from the campsite.
    Absolutely the best holiday I’ve had in a long time!

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Here to hike or bike? Hardy walkers or cyclists might be seeking somewhere for a stopover on the 119-mile Pilgrims’ Way or the 156-mile North Downs Way, both of which pass through nearby Charing, but there are plenty of more leisurely routes nearby too (including that walk to the local pub).

For plants and flowers of a more cultivated fashion, it’ll take you 15 minutes or so to drive to Doddington Place Gardens (where they also serve up rather fine cakes). Next door is the Hawking Centre, a fab place for falconry demos and handling experiences.

You’ll likely need to set aside a whole day if you’re planning a visit to Leeds Castle (15 minutes away) – around the 500-acre estate are heaps of things to do, including a maze, some excellent playgrounds, punting and a unique dog collar museum (and not forgetting the castle itself of course).

City and seaside aren’t too far away either – get in the car and you can be in Canterbury or wandering on Whitstable beach in around half an hour.

Must see

  • Ashford Designer Outlet (6.5 miles)
  • Leeds Castle (6.8 miles)
  • Sissinghurst Castle Garden (11.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Stoneacre (9.1 miles)
  • Sissinghurst Castle Garden (12.2 miles)
