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.

Completely loved it and will go back :) 26/10/2017

    Had an amazing stay with a group of friends all with young children. The weather was better than when we went camping in June which was a massive plus! There was only one other person booked onto the site so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The staff were amazing and made it great for the kids. We had the clubhouse to ourselves both nights and the kids bingo was great. The swimming pool was great and the field is great for the kids to be able to run and play in :)

    Disliked: 

    The showers always seemed pretty cold, there is only one toilet for men for the whole campsite I think that if it was busy then this would be a big problem. Also the food on offer ( if you are looking for hot food) wasn’t always available and is quite limited. Also there is no shop to buy supplies but this is me being picky.

    It was fine,
    Helpful staff, pleasant pitch. We only stayed two nights.
    facilities basic, but clean, but really no problem to us, but we were the only tent pitched !!
    If the field was full, then the toilet cabin could not cope.

    Disliked: 

    Looked quite untidy at the entrance, and a bit run down. The swimming pool did not look to good.

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 (2.3 miles)
  • Deal Castle (2.7 miles)
  • South Foreland Lighthouse (4.2 miles)

National Trust

  • South Foreland Lighthouse (4.1 miles)
