Feeling down-harted? Isle guarantee a mood-lifting time for the whole family at Harts Holiday Park on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent’s own tourist island, where you can pitch up in your own static caravan with all mod cons only a short stroll from the beach and promenade.
Harts is a Park Holidays site, so is packed with things to do for caravanners big and small: as well as the standard amenities and facilities including a launderette and mini mart, there’s an entertainment complex on site with evening entertainment, a kids’ club for the small people to run wild, an adventure playground and a family bar with free wifi and Sky TV.
Although Harts Holiday Park’s location at Leysdown has one of the lowest rainfalls in the UK, there are lots of opps to get soaked on site, with a heated indoor pool, a paddling pool for the tinies, and a sauna and spa bath. We can feel our harts lifting already…

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.

As it’s an island, beaches abound on Sheppey. There’s the sandy stretch nearby at Leysdown-on-Sea, which also has a naturist beach, and a pebble beach at Minster for fossil-hunting among the London Clay.
A mile away from Minster is Sheerness, the biggest town on Sheppey and the main seaside resort on the island; there’s a busy pier here complete with seaside amusements and easy access to sailing and watersports. For stunning views of the Kent countryside, climb to the battlements 200ft above sea level at the Minster Abbey Gatehouse Museum; there are countless relics including fossils and Roman coins among the museum exhibits.
Also in the area, the Sheerness RSPB reserve Elmley Marshes is teeming with native birds and wildlife and has the highest density of wading birds in southern England; take a walking trail around the reserve or burrow into one of the five hides to spot species including marsh harriers, short-eared owls and golden plovers. Naturalists can also take their notebooks around the National Nature Reserve of the Swale to spot rare butterflies and plants.
The fishing town of Whitstable is three miles across the Shale and is where James 2 was collared by William 3 in 1688; it’s known more nowadays for its oyster festival and seafood, and has a yacht club to lament enviously at as well as oodles of watersports and fishing to try.
Further into the county is the historic city of Canterbury with its famous cathedral (now plague free), and Leeds Castle, where there are events, mazes, a Go Ape! centre to swing about at and hot air balloon flights over the Kent countryside. The Port Lympne Wild Animal Park near Hythe is the spot to go on an English safari, and the kids should also go wild for playing at Hop Farm Family Park in Tonbridge and Diggerland near Rochester.
Holidaymakers into their history and culture will find the area rich in pickings: for starters there are the historic dockyards at Chatham (make a stop here at Dickens World too), steaming along on the Bredgar & Wormshill Light Railway or the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, and pootling around the Victorian mansion and landscaped grounds of Doddington Place Gardens near Sittingbourne.
