Painters Farm Campsite: Golden hour a painters farm

General

  • Dog-friendly cherry orchard site in the peaceful Kent Downs
  • Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 25 minutes’ drive to Whitstable
  • Barbecues and campfires allowed; pub within two minutes’ walk

Plant yourself firmly in the cherry orchard at Painters Farm Campsite beside the village of Painters Forstal in Kent, where cherries aren’t the only thing blossoming. Previously owned by the same hands for over 50 years, the new owners have injected a new lease of life into this family-friendly and dog-friendly two-acre site… welcomed by barns adorned with fairy lights and the sweet shade from cherry trees, you’ll be well-situated to take in everything from chalk cliffs to wistful woodlands in the surrounding sloping Kent Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Plus, go from grassy pitches into luscious sands, as the coastal town of Whitstable is within 25 minutes’ drive. Here, you can sample sunsets while eating oysters or head out to sea on a sailboat if you wish.

The local area is certainly awash with things to do. Perhaps settle for a pint of local ale or a meal in the nearby Kentish pub, within two minutes’ stroll. You could head into Faversham (just a five minutes’ drive) for ice cream shops, cafés and pubs set in what was once a busy port in 17th-century England (famed for its wool trade). Here, walk its cutesy medieval street (one of the oldest in the country) or stock up on supplies from its supermarket within five minutes’ drive, ready for a light barbecue or campfire back on site.

If you’re thirsty from the day’s jaunts, there’s also the country’s oldest family-owned brewery within 10 minutes’ drive and a large food hall with naturally scrumptious farm foods within the same distance.

    Really well kept site. Plenty of space around pitches. Friendly and helpful owners. Small shop selling essentials. Good pub in easy walking distance in adjacent Painters Forstal. The village also has a small childrens playground. Short drive into Whitstable for a day out.

    Our birthday weekend was excellent with very helpful owners the weather was amazing considering only 15 miles away it was poring it down with rain
    the idea of stopping all noise after 11pm until after 7 am works well apart from on a Sunday morning when little ones where running around and making a lot of noise
    but we had to get up so to pack everything away

    Disliked: 

    a better notice re not taking dogs into the toilets on my first visit to the toilets I had my small dog as I was not aware of the policy and found it un nerving when i came out of the cubicle to be met by the owner telling me dogs were not allowed in .
    also my only criticism is the showers were open to the cold in the rest of the toilets and although the water was lovely and hot as soon as you stepped out the cold air hit you

    Friendly couple introduced us thoroughly despite us only staying one night. Nice local pub-The Alma.

    Disliked: 

    Very noisy during night due to proximity of the M2 wish we'd checked out the location before booking.

From the manager...

Hiya Anna,

thanks for taking the time to review. Sorry to hear that the roadway was particularly noticeable on your one nights stay.

As you have probably seen from all the great 10/10 reviews, it is a rare occurance but towards the close of season the roads do get damp and colder, the wind can swing around to the NE on occasion and there we are.

Hoping you still enjoyed the cherry orchard setting with all the apples coming into colour around the listed farm house, flint barns and far fetching views over the fields and your route onwards was easy to navigate.

PF Reception 😊

Local attractions

Canterbury (20 minutes’ drive) is calling…the town is riddled with UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as Canterbury Cathedral, St Augustine’s Abbey and the Church of St Martin. Pick out cute eateries or shops as a resting point as you work your way around its well-documented history.

If the olden times excite your mind, Belmont House and Gardens (five minutes) are nearby, with a marvellous walled garden and traditional tea room. There are more bountiful gardens (and righteous insides) at Leeds Castle (25 minutes).

Balance your outings with wildlife and a visit to the safari-style The Big Cat Sanctuary (35 minutes). Or perhaps look towards the red pandas and bears lurking at Wingham Wildlife Park (half an hour). Nature also runs fairly wild in the ancient woodlands at Blean Woods National Nature Reserve (half an hour).

If you’re in search of more coastal towns, you won't have to look too far. Follow the coast past Herne Bay (25 minutes and a good stop for jet skiing, windsurfing and other watersports) and into the trendy town of Margate (40 minutes) for fish and chips stalls and seaside rides.

Must see

  • Whitstable Museum and Art Gallery (13.6 kilometers)
