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.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
