The folk down at Woolton Farm know a thing or two about this stretch of land – they've been working it for over 100 years. The Mount family who run the place turn out some of the finest fruit, ciders and English wines around and are well-known in the trade. They also do a nice little sideline in outdoor accommodation and have some high-end tents set up on one of the loveliest bits of their farm…
The tents are located at the back of the fruit garden – where most of the varieties grown by the Mounts are on display – next to a row of cobnut trees. They're spaciously spread out over the green surrounds, with views of the fruit garden and the site's gorgeous 16th-century thatched barn. Birds of prey like buzzards can regularly be spotted circling overhead (in the evening they can be heard mewing in the skies above).
Inside, the accommodation is equipped with coconut matting, comfy mattresses, a central table and a powerful rechargeable torch. It's a short walk from here to the well-maintained toilets, showers and disabled washroom. A washing-up area, with fridges and a freezer, is also available to help with meal prep. Secure charging lockers for mobile phones and other small gadgets are available free of charge.
On selected days the friendly site team set up an open-air bar where you can sample Woolton Farm's own wine and award-winning cider. Other local booze and soft drinks are for sale here, as are ice creams and strawberries (farm-grown, of course). A barbecue is organised throughout the afternoon on some weekends (check with site staff for details).
This well-connected site is 15 minutes' drive from the cathedral city of Canterbury and 25 minutes from top coastal spots like Whitstable beach and Sandwich.
