Sunnyside Farm Camping and Caravan Park (Chilham) is a small quiet campsite with just 12 pitches, positioned perfectly between the historic cathedral city of Canterbury and Ashford with its shopping outlet and train links to France and London.

If you like noise and running around playing ball games then we are not for you, but if you do enjoy peace and quiet, reading a book or just sitting and relaxing enjoying the birds singing with a breeze in the tree's then we may just have what you are looking for.
Sunnyside is set in the rolling hills of the Kentish countryside far enough away from the hustle and bustle, allowing for a relaxing slow-paced break.

It is the perfect place to use as a base for visiting the local attractions, sightseeing round places of interest or spend your days walking through the forests that are only a 5 to 10 minute drive away.

It's also an ideal spot for taking advantage of the numerous regional and national cycle routes, or sitting back and enjoying the views.

We welcome all caravans, motor homes and tents for both short and long breaks.

Depart: (2 nights)
