General

  • Family-run farm site in the Kent Downs, a mile from Halling village
  • A 10-minute drive to Rochester, 20 minutes to Leeds Castle
  • Well-stocked farm shop on site; next to the North Downs Way

There’s history all around at Croquet Lawn Camping at Court Farm – this farm site in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is in the midst of the Medway’s megalithic sites (including Kit’s Coty and Coldrum Long Barrow), and part of an area once occupied by the Romans.

The Lingham family can’t trace their history back quite that far, but they’ve still managed to notch up 150 years of living on this fine agricultural estate a mile from the village of Halling. The manor house dates back to the early middle ages though, and the estate is clearly a place that’s well settled in its environment (you can tell by the way the wild pheasants stroll nonchalantly around the place, and the fact that hawks, badgers and squirrels seem happy to stop by too…)

This is still a working farm, so you’ll be surrounded by fields of arable crops and grass-fed sheep and cows, and with free-range chickens to see as well. All of this feeds into the very popular and well-stocked farm shop on site, which is open six days a week (not Mondays) and provides all sorts of local treats including fresh meat and veg, dairy and deli snacks, with Kentish fruit juices and local ales to wash it all down.

All of this means you’re likely to want to barbecue or picnic as much as possible – and you’re welcome to do so, but it’s also handy to note that there’s an excellent pub in the village if you fancy venturing out.

    Relatively flat pitch. Dark skies, little light pollution.
    The on-site farm shop was a total bonus, we didn’t have far to go to ‘forage’ dinner!

From the manager...

Dear Paul, Thanks so much for your kind review, we loved having you here at Court Farm! Note that the harvest season is nearly over and then our car parking arrangements will return to normal ie right next to the campsite so only a walking distance of a couple of meters. Sorry for the inconvenience, but as a working farm we had to put health & safety first for the few weeks we needed the "top barn" for the tractors driving back and forth unloading the tonnes of harvested grain :)

Local attractions

You won’t have to go very far to get to the closest attraction – a simple 10-minute stroll gets you to the bright blue waters of St Andrew’s Lakes, for wild swims, fishing, paddleboarding, kayaking or a bounce across its inflatable assault course. If you’d rather stay dry, take a ramble through the farm’s woodland down to the marshlands alongside the Medway River, or set out for a walk on the North Downs Way, which passes by the site.

If you’d like to tick off those ancient megalithic sites, plan a day taking in Kits Coty House (15 minutes’ drive) and Coldrum Long Barrow (20 minutes) – or follow the guided walk from the farm to the latter.

Rochester (15 minutes) is another place to put on your list, for its museum, cathedral and castle, and you may also like to plan outings to Leeds Castle (20 minutes) and Canterbury (40 minutes). For a rather more modern day out, sign up for go-karting sessions at Buckmore Park (15 minutes) or get to grips with the bigger vehicles at Diggerland Kent (10 minutes).

Must see

  • Rochester Castle (6.5 kilometers)
  • Rochester Cathedral (6.6 kilometers)
  • The Historic Dockyard Chatham (8.2 kilometers)
