Lacton Manor Barn: Rural views

General

  • Rural site surrounded by woods and fields in the Kent Downs
  • Five minutes drive from Charing; 15 minutes from Leeds Castle
  • Close to the Pilgrims Way; 25 minutes' walk from the local pub

Lacton Manor Barn is a spacious rural site in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, five minutes’ drive from the village of Charing and with easy access from the M20.

The pitches here are surrounded by fields (which sometimes house livestock) and natural woodlands, with a spring-fed lake nearby and views up to the Pilgrims Way and a vineyard.

This is pared-back camping with no running water, toilets or showers, but drums of fresh water can be supplied. Guests are welcome to set up barbecues and campfires and get stuck into traditional outdoorsy activities like dam building and den making in the woods (there’s plenty of fallen wood to collect around the place for such things).

Those looking to get out and about on foot can do so easily: there are plenty of footpaths and bridleways around, such as the Pilgrims Way, which passes nearby. You can even walk all the way to Canterbury along the North Downs Way should you wish; less ambitious types might prefer a stroll to the nearest pub, 25 minutes away on foot. Whatever kind of wandering you’ve got in mind, the folk on site are happy to offer ideas and advice.

The location is excellent for walking the North Downs Way …05/06/2021

    The location is excellent for walking the North Downs Way and surrounding areas. We would recommend taking the scenic route to The Wheel Pub in Westwell via the Pilgrims Way (2 hours) where the staff are very friendly and offer a good selection of pub fayre. The return journey direct to the campsite is a 25 min walk via picturesque country lanes. We camped in the woods and found the privacy and setting beautiful being woken by birdsong in the mornings. No toilet or washing ammenities but this was not a problem for us adding to the camping experience and Trevor was very helpful and welcoming providing us with drinking water and helpful local knowledge. This is a more rustic camping experience but well worth the effort.

    We would also recommend visitng The Church of St Cosmas and Damian and St Mary's Church ruins in Eastwell.

    Disliked: 

    Quite close to the rail line but not really an issue.
