There can’t be many places where you can polish off a full Monty for breakfast, relax over morning coffee and croissants at a French pavement café, and be back home in time for a good old-fashioned afternoon tea... Hawthorn Farm is the closest caravan site to Dover (four miles away), so it’s an ideal stop for those heading over the Channel; but even if you’re not doing any continental cantering about, it’s an enticing place to stay.
There are 28 acres of stunning wooded grounds to explore, with pleasant walks and bunnies and birds galore, and the site is well-positioned for jaunts around Kent and along the coast.
Hawthorn Farm has a small but well-stocked shop, a café, and laundry facilities. A five minute walk brings you to the local village of Martin Mill, which has a decent village pub, as well as a train station with direct links to London.

Hawthorn Farm is situated at Martin Mill, two miles from the beautiful St Margaret's Bay, near Dover. It is well signposted, lying to the north of the main A258 road, midway between Dover and Deal.
Don’t miss giving Dover a look-over: there’s plenty to see apart from the White Cliffs (and in any case, you’ll get a great view of those as you set off on a day’s jolly to France, Belgium or Holland). Check out historic Dover Castle, with its Roman lighthouse and secret wartime tunnels; the Dover Museum; the Transport Museum; or Crabble Corn Mill, a working Georgian watermill, museum and tearooms - you can buy some of the mill’s own flour or bread mix as an unusual souvenir, and you may even be lucky enough to coincide with one of the annual beer or cider festivals...
The historic landscape around Hawthorn Farm is loaded with castles, with Tudor fortresses just along the coast at Deal and Walmer, and a bit further inland, one of the most breathtaking strongholds in England, Leeds Castle.
Hawthorn Farm is an ideal spot for an active holiday too, with internationally renowned golf courses, a choice of sea or river fishing, horse riding through the glorious Kent countryside, and swimming either from the local beaches or at the leisure centre in Dover.
