General

  • Campsite with basic facilities on a genuine working farm

Sunnyside Farm is a working farm set in some of the garden of England’s finest countryside. The farm is situated down a quiet country lane surrounded by countryside and beautiful landscaped gardens. This rural setting is just a short drive from the city of Canterbury, and is within 10 miles of the Channel Tunnel and the port of Dover.

The site offers all the benefits of the country with fantastic walks, country pubs and great places to picnic. It's also an ideal spot for taking advantage of the numerous regional and national cycle routes, or just sitting back and enjoy the views.

Pleasant relaxing stay. 31/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Easy to book at short notice using pitchup.com. Good value. Peaceful site for families and couples only. Pleasant scenery. Friendly owners. Good facilities for size of site. Very handy for Canterbury and also for Howletts Wild Animal Park.

    Disliked: 

    Postcode covers a long road so bigger signs facing both directions marking the entrance would be good. Signs directing campers to the bathroom facilities over the road would be good as we thought the chemical toilet was all there was until next day.

very sweet little site. 29/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Anthony N. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Lovely TINY site in beautiful Kent countryside. Nice spotless loo and shower room. Very sweet owners. right next to very nice looking pub (although we didn't;t try it). Masses to do in the area.

    Disliked: 

    the only downside from my very personal POV is that as its a very small field with his hedges all around it feels a little closed in. I prefer campsites with views. On the other hand, if it was windy and you were in a tent it would be very sheltered.

Directions


Please note there are two Sunnyside Farms on Pitchup near Canterbury. We are the one near the village of Bridge - use the site postcode for the satnav.

From the A2 heading towards Dover, take the second exit for Canterbury/Bridge. Turn right going over the A2 and follow the road to a crossroads (look for signs to the Duck Inn). Head straight across into Station Road and then take the second left, signposted Pett Bottom. Go under the old railway bridge; the site is at the next turning on the right (about 1.5 miles). If you get to the Duck Inn you have just passed the farm!

From the A2 London bound, turn off for Bridge/Bishopsbourne. Go through the village of Bridge and as you head out away from the village up the hill, turn left at the crossroads into Station Road. Take the second left, signposted Pett Bottom. Go under the old railway bridge and the site is at the next turning on the right (about 1.5 miles). If you get to the Duck Inn you have just passed the farm!
