Thriftwood Holiday Park is located in the rural village of Stansted with views of the surrounding North Downs, and is within easy reach of London. Set in 20 acres of peaceful woodland in the heart of the Kent countryside, this award-winning family park has a large touring area with an excellent choice of pitches.
We have hard and grass pitches with electric hookup, woodland walks, a licensed bar and a heated outdoor pool with a sun terrace to bask on. You’ll find the facilities at Thriftwood Holiday Park first class: we apply the highest standards of maintenance and cleanliness throughout.
Dogs and other pets are welcome. Thriftwood Holiday Park is open all year round.
Thriftwood is perfectly located for exploring Kent’s diverse andscape. The Garden of England has something for everyone: coastal beaches, countryside, medieval towns, historic castles, seaside resorts, international shopping, a thriving arts scene and a rich cultural history – Kent has more castles, stately homes and gardens open to the public than any other region in Britain.
The historic towns of Sevenoaks, Maidstone, Tonbridge and Royal Tonbridge Wells are all within easy driving distance, and it’s just a short journey to the renowned Bluewater and Lakeside shopping centres. For sports enthusiasts there is a wide choice of activities including the London Golf Club and the Brands Hatch motor racing circuit. And, of course, there is the great city of London with its world-class attractions.
Thriftwood has easy access to a host of nearby attractions just waiting to be explored with perfect days out for all the family. Much more information available at the campsite.

From the manager...
We are so saddened to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. We are disappointed that you didn't feel able to report your grievances to the office during you stay so we could do our utmost to make your holiday more pleasurable. As there are 3 site wardens who regularly patrol the park, unfortunately it seems that you didn't see them. We acknowledge that there was a problem with a water leak but this was rectified within the hour and we made customers aware of this issue. Should you have any further issues please do contact us directly, where we will be more than happy to discuss them with you, as all of our customers are very important to us.
