Painters Farm Campsite: Golden hour a painters farm (photo added by manager on 28/07/2022)

General

  • Dog-friendly cherry orchard site in the peaceful Kent Downs
  • Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 25 minutes’ drive to Whitstable
  • Barbecues and campfires allowed; pub within two minutes’ walk

Plant yourself firmly in the cherry orchard at Painters Farm Campsite beside the village of Painters Forstal in Kent, where cherries aren’t the only thing blossoming. Previously owned by the same hands for over 50 years, the new owners have injected a new lease of life into this family-friendly and dog-friendly two-acre site… welcomed by barns adorned with fairy lights and the sweet shade from cherry trees, you’ll be well-situated to take in everything from chalk cliffs to wistful woodlands in the surrounding sloping Kent Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Plus, go from grassy pitches into luscious sands, as the coastal town of Whitstable is within 25 minutes’ drive. Here, you can sample sunsets while eating oysters or head out to sea on a sailboat if you wish.

The local area is certainly awash with things to do. Perhaps settle for a pint of local ale or a meal in the nearby Kentish pub, within two minutes’ stroll. You could head into Faversham (just a five minutes’ drive) for ice cream shops, cafés and pubs set in what was once a busy port in 17th-century England (famed for its wool trade). Here, walk its cutesy medieval street (one of the oldest in the country) or stock up on supplies from its supermarket within five minutes’ drive, ready for a light barbecue or campfire back on site.

If you’re thirsty from the day’s jaunts, there’s also the country’s oldest family-owned brewery within 10 minutes’ drive and a large food hall with naturally scrumptious farm foods within the same distance.

    The site is very open plan and does well to keep all pitches spaced well apart.
    Reception was immediate and we were given a choice of pitches.
    Dog walking offsite was very close and good.
    Toilets and showers were very clean
    Easy access to Faversham with bikes
    The Alma pub serves good food and is only a short walk from the site. You will need your torch on the way back!

    Lovely clean grass pitch, plenty if pretty night lights. Close to toilets. Lovely hot showers. Nice little corner shop on site selling eggs and bread. Owners are so lovely and went above and beyond to help us during our stay.
    Ball games allowed in overflow car park so had fun with the children and even a couple of old tractors which our youngest loved sitting on. There is even a toilet in the ladies that makes some rather interesting noises which my boys and everyone I encountered in there found highly amusing! Lol
    Washing up site available.
    Lovely quite place to retreat.

Local attractions

Canterbury (20 minutes’ drive) is calling…the town is riddled with UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as Canterbury Cathedral, St Augustine’s Abbey and the Church of St Martin. Pick out cute eateries or shops as a resting point as you work your way around its well-documented history.

If the olden times excite your mind, Belmont House and Gardens (five minutes) are nearby, with a marvellous walled garden and traditional tea room. There are more bountiful gardens (and righteous insides) at Leeds Castle (25 minutes).

Balance your outings with wildlife and a visit to the safari-style The Big Cat Sanctuary (35 minutes). Or perhaps look towards the red pandas and bears lurking at Wingham Wildlife Park (half an hour). Nature also runs fairly wild in the ancient woodlands at Blean Woods National Nature Reserve (half an hour).

If you’re in search of more coastal towns, you won't have to look too far. Follow the coast past Herne Bay (25 minutes and a good stop for jet skiing, windsurfing and other watersports) and into the trendy town of Margate (40 minutes) for fish and chips stalls and seaside rides.
