Views of the countryside

General

  • Small and simple farm site on the Coast to Cathedral cycle route
  • Canterbury, Howlett's Zoo and Wingham Wildlife Park within 15 minutes
  • Half an hour's drive from Dover, Deal and Walmer Castles

Partial to a pedal-powered pilgrimage? The 50-mile Coast to Cathedral route across the Kent Downs between Canterbury and Dover passes right by this fab farm site.

Sunnyside Farm Camping is a small and simple affair, on a farm whose family have been tilling the soil and rearing livestock here for generations. Having been farming the Pett Bottom valley so long they’ve got a road named after them, the family running the site know the area like no-one else can, and they’re happy to advise on biking and walking paths nearby. By car, it's a little under five minutes’ drive from here to the hamlet of Pett Bottom, and a 15-minute journey to the ancient cathedral city of Canterbury.

After each year’s harvest, a herd of sheep joins the cows, chickens and arable crops here, making for a lively chorus of countryside sounds: when pottering across to collect fresh breakfast eggs from the porch, taking in the views over the Kent Downs, you could be holidaying in Chaucer’s time... (The amenities belong firmly in this era though: clean, basic and bright shared washrooms housed in a wooden farm building.)

And if you prefer cantering to cycles and strolls? Pay a call to the riding centre in the village, and trek the chalk hills on horseback for added historical vibes.

Please note

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

    Very kind and friendly owners, made us feel very welcome. The grass was very muddy so they allowed us to park our camper van in their farmyard. Tranquil setting, we heard wildlife at night, owls, foxes, etc.
    Shower and lavatory very clean.
    Also there is a great pub very close, the Duck. Gourmet food and wines.

    Sunny side is the perfect location for a peaceful getaway.

    The location, the site, the facilities all good.
    Birdsong and owl calls at night, a bonus.

Ideal way to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life09/13/2020

  • Liked: 

    A tranquil site in a lovely rural setting with good-sized pitches. Plenty of walks and cycle rides in the area. Not many facilities but the shower/toilet was bright and the water was hot. Lovely pub over the road (though at the time of writing does not open Monday/Tuesday). Friendly, helpful farmer’s wife. Fresh, free range farm eggs at £1.30 for six purchased via honesty box provided the cherry on the cake.

    Disliked: 

    The site slopes slightly, which might worry some people.

Local attractions

When you’ve walked, cycled and hacked across Kent, there’s only one option left: make for Canterbury (15 minutes’ drive) and punt or canoe your way down the Stour, stopping off for wanders of the Roman walls and guided Chaucer themed town walks, to finish up in the cathedral.

For more adventures in the ancient, the trio of Deal, Walmer and Dover Castles are all half an hour’s drive away and full of sights from times gone by, including a Roman lighthouse, secret World War II tunnels and the Duke of Wellington’s seaside pad. History with a side serving of bells and whistles can be had with a steam ride on the restored Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway (40 minutes).

Half an hour away, the Sandwich and Pegwell Bay National Nature Reserve serves up cliffs and saltmarshes, with seal colonies offshore in winter and summer cuckoos and nightingales turning the place into a sound garden. Or visit Britain’s only desert: Dungeness National Nature Reserve (50 minutes) is a landscape loved by waders and migratory birds, made extra picworthy by the looming power station.

For more contained encounters with wildlife, try Wingham Wildlife Park, a large collection of small creatures with exotic names such as tamanduas and cloud rats, while bigger beasts including Kent’s only giant anteaters stalk the plains at Howlett’s Zoo; both are half an hour away.

Must see

  • St Augustine's Abbey (5.6 kilometres)
  • Canterbury Tales (5.7 kilometres)
  • Canterbury Cathedral (5.8 kilometres)

National Trust

  • The White Cliffs of Dover (20.2 kilometres)
