General

  • Family holiday park set in 100 acres of Kent countryside
  • A 10-minute drive from Margate's beach and attractions
  • Pool, clubhouse, restaurant and family bar

Kent countryside… but more essentially, Kent coast.

Kids who clamour for maximum sandy days while on hol – and grownups who clamour for loads of options to keep small sorts fully busy – will be hugely chuffed at the setting of Birchington Vale Holiday Park, a few miles from the miles of golden sandy beaches of the north Kent coast.

But back to the setting in a bit… For even the fussiest guest (of whatever size) should find something to keep them entertained at this well-equipped family park: there's an indoor pool with flume to splash around at; an adventure playground and an amusement arcade for adventurous and amusing hours; crazy golf; pottery classes; archery... and Loopy and pals as park mascots overseeing the lot and the kids' club.

More? Stroll over to the clubhouse for eats all day long, as well as evening drinks in the family bar, evening entertainment for all the family, and a scenic setting for Sky Sports and to use the free wifi at the bar. The clubhouse also has a shop if you'd rather sort your own dins.

And that setting? Birchington Vale is on 100 acres of Kent countryside, three and a half miles from Margate and within easy reach of loads of family attractions including Howletts Wild Animal Park under half an hour away. Many local attractions lay on exclusive deals for park guests.

Local attractions

There's heaps to do for all ages and inclinations around this part of Kent coast and Kent countryside. All ages should have a hoot at Margate, with its lengthy sandy beach to bask on as well as a scenic harbour which should be your scenic spot for Margate fish and chips.

Also on your list should be the Dreamland Amusement Park, then a jaw-dropped look at an attraction of a completely different vibe but a spectacular sight: the famed Shell Grotto and its huge mosaics made up of over four and a half million shells. Like quite a few fascinating things in humankind's history (aka, Stonehenge), no-one quite knows who put the shells there or why: let the kids enthral you with their increasingly bonkers theories while there.

Family day trips include Diggerland, to drive full-sized diggers; Leeds Castle and Go Ape, and the 28 acres of grounds at Kent Life, the open-air museum and heritage farm park on the bank of the River Medway. All are 50 minutes' drive away.

Canterbury and the Canterbury Tales are half an hour's drive away.

Must see

  • Turner Contemporary (2.7 miles)
  • Howletts Wild Animal Park (10.4 miles)
