The Plough and Harrow: View over the site

General

  • Rural pub campsite in the green Kent countryside
  • A quarter of an hour from Deal by car; Broadstairs 30 minutes
  • Food and drink served on site; easy access from the A256

Set down on the edge of a quiet Kentish village…on the outskirts of Tilmanstone, The Plough and Harrow has friendliness down to an art. And if that isn’t already a good start, this welcoming pub is close to the south coast, with seaside spots like Deal (15 minutes' drive) and Broadstairs (half an hour) within striking distance.

One thing’s for sure, you can look forward to a laidback break here exploring Kent's seascapes – or relax in the knowledge that you have quick and easy access to the cross-Channel ferries at Dover.

The main pub building dates back to the 1850s and with food and drink available in the pub, you shouldn't be troubled by any tummy grumbles. The pub is bordered by a quiet camping field with a range of quality holiday accommodation options. Pets are allowed in the main field, but not in hired accommodation. Plus, toilets and showers are available here, with more amenities available in the pub.

The Plough and Harrow is just off the A256, so it won't take long to get yourself somewhere interesting along the Kent coast. While there aren't many more amenities in the village, there is a kids' playground, and nearby Sandwich (10 minutes' drive to the north) has a small but well-stocked supermarket, a handful of independent cafés and good public transport links, including a mainline railway station.

Please note

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Please note that the pub is currently closed.

    Really lovely pub with a warm and friendly welcome. We were lucky to arrive on a night with a great live musician, who finished at 9pm. Food was good and the gas heaters in the garden and fire inside gave it a cozy feel. Very quiet overnight. Will definitely return.

Local attractions

Get to know the local haunts… with a pretty promenade and pebbly beach, Deal (15 minutes’ drive) has independent shops, galleries and museums in no short stock. And while Sandwich (10 minutes) might be slightly smaller, medieval life is well-preserved here, with town tours and river trips some of the ways to take in the place properly.

Indeed, all these Kentish towns have their fair share of activities… perhaps you’ll want to go for a day's surfing in Broadstairs (30 minutes) or venture into Canterbury (half an hour) to see a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the famed cathedral. Its medieval core has a good bit of history, as do Dover Castle (20 minutes) and Leeds Castle (50 minutes).

For those of you who have a soft spot for heart-racing spectator activities, Lydden Hill Race Circuit (25 minutes) pulls off some great racing events throughout the year (just check the calendar in advance). However, in Betteshanger Park (10 minutes), you’ll be the one taking charge, as this country park has cycling trails or mountain biking courses for beginners or pros.

  • Deal Castle (4.4 miles)
  • Walmer Castle and Gardens (4.5 miles)
  • White Cliffs of Dover (5.8 miles)
