General

  • Set on six acres of south-east Kent countryside
  • Four miles from the beach at Deal
  • Free heated pool, shop and clubhouse with free wifi

Huzzah, it's the Kent coast. And huzzah, it's Sutton Vale Holiday Park, an amicable and well-maintained setting for Kent-based seaside hols.

Sutton Vale is about four miles from the nearest sands (and award-winning high street) of Deal, and is easily accessible to the historical landmarks of Sutton Vale as well as the rest of Kent: it's just seven miles to eleventh century Dover Castle and a mere three in the other direction to Deal's sixteenth century coastal artillery fort.

But some guests decide to stick around on site for their whole hol instead. The friendly Sutton Vale team reckon they've sorted enough to do to keep the whole family entertained if so: you could try a (free) splash in the 15-metre heated indoor pool, or maybe hang around in the clubhouse, or linger over a Sunday carvery, or toddle along to the weekend entertainment in school holidays… Free wifi is available in the clubhouse too if you'd rather lounge around and surf.

Amenities on site include ladies' and gents' loo and shower blocks, a washing-up area, a play area and a shop.

    No numbered pitches in middle of camping field meant that we spent a long time deciding where to camp (along with others!)
    Photography in brochures and internet is very flattering.

Good family site, large clean pitches and very friendly 14/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Karen W. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Pitches were large and our group were together, swimming pool was a big asset especially on rainy days. Kids club was excellent when run by Sonny. Club house had a good atmosphere and a variety of entertainment.

    Disliked: 

    Kids club was cancelled several times with little or no notice which disappointed the younger children. The site would benefit from a small shop and the showers were not great.

  • Liked: 

    Pitch sizes were great loads of room to spread about and water tap in between every other pitch, the staff were great and really welcoming if any thing was wrong (i.e. Hot water running out in the wash rooms) they saw to it straight way, the cleaning staff, maintenance staff and the people who own caravans on site were brilliant, the swimming pool was a decent size and was never over busy when we used it, Daisy's restaurant is a lovely touch in the morning and sells lovely locally grown veg, Bar was lovely and welcoming and the kids bingo at 7pm every night was brilliant, the camp site was always clean and not over crowded. We had a lovely stay well done Sutton Vale we hope to stay again soon.

    Disliked: 

    Even though it is a lovely place I feel that it can benefit with a little convenient store on site.

Local attractions

You might have heard the moniker 'Garden of England' for the county of Kent, and it's a right fitting one as England's oldest county has 180 of the green green things, including the fably famed ones of Lullingston Castle at Dartford. The closest gardens to Sutton Vale Holiday Park are less than three miles away at Walmer Castle.

The little towns of Deal and Sandwich are a short drive from the park, as is Dover, famed for its ferries, its castle and its chalky white cliffs.

We also recommend a look at nearby Ramsgate with its marina, waterfront and beach; Broadstairs, with peaceful harbour at which to picnic, and Margate, in its scenic setting with many restaurants and bars.

If you'd rather investigate local heritage when on hol, you're in the right place, as Kent has more castles and historic houses than any other English region. Local highlights include Canterbury, with cathedral, castle and some of the oldest Gothic and Romanesque architecture in the land; a puff on the Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway, and the ancient history of Chiselhurst Caves.

Activities nearby include horse riding a mile away, golf five miles away and the Betteshanger Country Park cycling track, within three miles.

Must see

  • Walmer Castle and Gardens (2.6 miles)
  • Deal Castle (3.1 miles)
  • South Foreland Lighthouse (4.0 miles)

National Trust
