Don’t stress that you might be stranded with nothing to do on the Isle of Sheppey in north Kent… the site of Warden Springs on the island will capture your interest with heaps of on-site activities for all ages – and is a short drive from the new bridge over the Swale for easily exploring the rest of the county.
Rest, relax or explore at this Spreyer Holidays site: Warden Springs is surrounded by countryside and woodland (and comes with smashing sea views), set about a mile from the award-winning pebble beach at Leysdown with coastal park and nature reserve beyond.
The outdoor pool on site will keep the kids happy while the bigger folks lounge on the sun terrace opposite, and small guests should show more than a flicker of interest at the many activities laid on for them during the day.
Plenty of other pursuits are run all day long for the rest of the family; check with the entertainment team when you arrive to see what’s on, when and where.
Peak season and bank holidays see leisurely evening entertainment at the Waterside Tavern, with a more restful programme of events available at other times. Alongside the tavern, the Waterside restaurant and takeaway serves a good selection of family-friendly meals and snacks from 9am until late.

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.

From the M25, take the A2 at Junction 2, which then becomes the M2, until Junction 5 (Sheerness and Sittingbourne). Follow the A249 for 8 miles and take a right onto the B2231 to Eastchurch.
At Eastchurch, turn left just after the church, following the signs for Warden Springs Holiday Park. At the bottom of the hill turn right (signposted Shurland Dale and Warden Springs). The park is about 2.5 miles along this road.
All the Swale is a National Nature Reserve, Special Protection Area and Site of Special Scientific Interest; so as you might deduce, rich sightings abound around here for naturalists and birdwatchers, like rare butterflies and moths, unusual flora, and flocks of wading birds such as avocets, oystercatchers and the country’s biggest collection of marsh harriers.
One of the best spots to spy the bird population on Sheppey is from the viewing platform at Capel Fleet, part of the RSPB reserve at Elmley Marshes.
Beachwise, both Leysdown and Sheppey’s main beach at Sheerness are popular with families and both have received Blue Flag awards.
The seaside port of Sheerness has quite a bit to do off the sand, such as checking out the history of the area at the both the Blue Town and Sheerness heritage centres, telling the tale of the days when Sheerness was a busy port and a base for the Royal Navy.
Minster Abbey, along the coast to the west, has been an essential Sheppey site since the seventh century and has a varied collection of artefacts from the ages, such as the famous de Northwode brasses and armour dating from the fourteenth to sixteenth centuries.
Going into Kent itself, the ‘garden of England’ is blossoming with piles more stuff to see and do: visit the open-air Museum of Kent Life in Maidstone for a refreshing day with the kids, keep them sweet with the jam-making ingredients at Brogdale Farm, or dive into the area’s maritime history at historic Chatham Dockyard (Dickens World is at the dockyard too for those who like to leaf through Kent’s literary heritage).
Twelfth century Rochester Castle and absolutely fabulous Leeds Castle with its 500 acres of parkland and formal gardens are popular Kent pulls for visitors, as are the gardens at Sissinghurst Castle, former home of Vita Sackville-West.
The fishing – and oyster – town of Whitstable is about three miles over the Swale and well worth a visit to sample its most famous produce; from here, it’s a short drive to the seaside and watersports of Herne Bay or the spectacular sights of historic Canterbury.
The Canterbury Heritage Museum, in a twelfth century former hospital in Stour Street, still has its medieval beamed roofs alongside troves of local treasure starting from Anglo-Saxon times.
Speaking of which, childish occupations are also plentiful in Kent: the 450 acres of country park at The Hop Farm have funfair rides, magic castle and giant pillows to bounce around on, and all ages should dig getting down and dirty at Diggerland, where kids and adults can take a turn driving full-size construction machinery – but do let the offspring have their turn too…
