Oak View Holiday Park: Plenty of space

General

  • Scenic site surrounded by woodlands in the Kent Downs
  • A 10-minute drive from Maidstone and Leeds Castle
  • Next to Kent Showground; pet-friendly site with a dedicated pet shower

Situated in the scenic Kent village of Detling, this family-focused campsite is a great place for all the family to escape the stresses and strains of everyday life and to reconnect with nature and each other. Surrounded by a protected woodland and with an abundance of trails to explore, it's easy to stretch your legs at Oak View Holiday Park and find space for your kids and/or dogs to let off some steam.

Oak View Holiday Park is located right next to the Kent Showground, making this site an excellent option for attending the varied and numerous events and shows that run here throughout the year. Other top-notch attractions like Leeds Castle (10 minutes' drive) and Maidstone (10 minutes) are also easy to access.

Guests staying here have access to modern and well-maintained bathroom and shower blocks (with separate male, female and disabled areas). Other handy on-site amenities include a laundry room, washing-up areas, waste disposal points and a pet shower, all of which are kept spick and span by the campsite team.

Please note that barbecues, campfires and firepits are not permitted.

Thank you for your review, Maria.

We are glad that you found our laundry and washing up facilities to be good, we know you used them a lot during your stay. We have a large capacity washing machine and tumble dryer, ideal for our guests staying for longer periods.

The toilets and showers do get cleaned at least once a day, during busy periods twice and they are regularly checked and spot-cleaned in between.

We are glad that you all enjoyed your stay with us. The Oak View team.

Stacey, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.

We are glad that you found the site to be child safe. It's nice to be able to relax knowing that your children are not in any danger.

We have a campfire free site (you may have a barbecue if its gas, electric or charcoal) as we want the park to remain to be safe for everybody, especially all your lovely children. The Oak View team.

Thank you, Ben for your kind review.

We are lucky with our location, we are near to the coast, Canterbury, Leeds castle, and not a million miles away from London, to name a few. We are also near to some good days out for the kids such as Diggerland and Wingham Wildlife Park.
Even though we are fairly near to the main access road, we are set back and are surrounded by trees and country lanes.

We shall look forward to seeing you and your friends again 😁. The Oak View team.

Directions


The site is just off the A249, within 2 miles of the M20 (Junction 7) and 5 miles off the M2 (Junction 5).

The best postcode to follow using a satnav is ME14 3HB as using the postcode takes you on a longer route.

Heading from the M20 Junction 7, drive along the A249 to the top of Detling Hill. As you approach the top you will pass a layby and a sign for Bredhurst. Turn left along the road to Bredhurst; this is Scragged Oak Road. The park is 500 yards along the road on the left marked with a large green sign.

Please do not turn up Pilgrims Way.

Local attractions

Oak View Holiday Park is in prime position to traverse the best of Kent's countryside, coast, castles and well-known gardens – with Essex and its coast easily accessible too just to the north.

Plenty of pedalling and perambulating opportunities are around the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, such as the 153-mile route of the North Downs National Trail through from Farnham to Canterbury, passing the White Cliffs of Dover. This takes in the 119-mile Pilgrims' Way, the supposed route of Thomas Becket from Winchester to Canterbury Cathedral.

Elsewhere in Kent, loads is on all year round in the 500 acres of parkland and formal gardens at lovely Leeds Castle (10 minutes’ drive), like free falconry displays, play areas, special events and making one's way intrepidly out of the castle maze. Also see Rochester Castle (20 minutes) on the east bank of the Medway for its 12th-century keep and stacks of historical info: the castle was sacked during the Peasants' Revolt, held for Henry III against the barons, and besieged (also because of barons) by bad King John.

And of course, just next door is the Kent Showground, which hosts all sorts of events throughout the year (the most famed being the Kent County Show, which usually runs for three days in July).

Must see

  • Leeds Castle (6.9 kilometers)
  • The Historic Dockyard Chatham (10.8 kilometers)
  • Rochester Cathedral (11.0 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Stoneacre (5.6 kilometers)
  • Cobham Wood and Mausoleum (15.1 kilometers)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
