Woolton Farm: Bell tent

General

  • Scenic east Kent site set on a working fruit farm
  • Canterbury 15 minutes by car; 25 minutes to Whitstable
  • Rural scenery with peaceful orchards and a 16th-century thatched barn

The folk down at Woolton Farm know a thing or two about this stretch of land – they've been working it for over 100 years. The Mount family who run the place turn out some of the finest fruit, ciders and English wines around and are well-known in the trade. They also do a nice little sideline in outdoor accommodation and have some high-end tents set up on one of the loveliest bits of their farm…

The tents are located at the back of the fruit garden – where most of the varieties grown by the Mounts are on display – next to a row of cobnut trees. They're spaciously spread out over the green surrounds, with views of the fruit garden and the site's gorgeous 16th-century thatched barn. Birds of prey like buzzards can regularly be spotted circling overhead (in the evening they can be heard mewing in the skies above).

Inside, the accommodation is equipped with coconut matting, comfy mattresses, a central table and a powerful rechargeable torch. It's a short walk from here to the well-maintained toilets, showers and disabled washroom. A washing-up area, with fridges and a freezer, is also available to help with meal prep. Secure charging lockers for mobile phones and other small gadgets are available free of charge.

On selected days the friendly site team set up an open-air bar where you can sample Woolton Farm's own wine and award-winning cider. Other local booze and soft drinks are for sale here, as are ice creams and strawberries (farm-grown, of course). A barbecue is organised throughout the afternoon on some weekends (check with site staff for details).

This well-connected site is 15 minutes' drive from the cathedral city of Canterbury and 25 minutes from top coastal spots like Whitstable beach and Sandwich.

Excellent experience with friendly staff and delicious cider06/28/2021

    We had an excellent stay at Woolton Farm. The staff were extremely friendly, helping us with numerous requests to make our stay more pleasant (mostly for working the BBQ). The facilities were exactly what you want for a camping experience. The tents were roomy and easily fit our group. I would recommend taking a duvet to sleep with as it provides a bit more comfort to go with the camping mattresses. "The Barn" itself served a range of fresh, produced on site cider - all of which were a great drop. The food from the café was delicious, notably the sausage rolls. They even had the Euros playing in The Barn itself. Overall, I definitely recommend Woolton Farm.

Overall a great experience. Think cider barn with somewhere to crash.06/28/2021

  • Liked: 

    Lovely surroundings in the garden of this Cider Farm. The Barn itself was a great focal point and kept us dry from the rain during inclement weather. Lots of lovely local drinks and produce to try.

    Disliked: 

    It is just like camping in a big back garden. The toilet/shower block is clean but very limited and if the site has been busier then there would have been lots of waiting for turns. No where “dry” in the shower/toilet to leave clothes, and no where to sit when getting dressed.

    The camping mats were relatively short and not especially comfortable. This was not glamping but just ready pitched tents.

    Staff had ideas about walking locally but “hadn’t actually done it” themselves and weren’t aware that some routes were on busy roads with no footpaths, unsuitable for kids.

    Lovely area, really pretty and camping area very safe for children. Good area for day trips

    Disliked: 

    Too few facilities for too many people. Toilets/shower not cleaned regularly. Often without soap or toilet roll.
    Shower very difficult with small children - no hooks or shelves to put products of dry clothes and no dry area to then dress.
    Ground under tents needs levelling and flattening - very bumpy and sloped so everyone just kept sliding off in the night. - not fun.

    Stunning location, very lovely site with delicious cider available! Conveniently placed for great day trips.

    Disliked: 

    Whole site needs upscaling for the numbers staying. 1 toilet, 1 shower, 1 washing up sink, 1 tiny shared fridge, minute locker all impractical and definitely not enough for a stay for longer than one night.
    Tents are pitched on a slope, impossible not to slide off the dreadfully THIN mattresses during the night which really disturbed sleep.

    Beautiful location, really warm and friendly welcome. Tent was in great condition and really comfortable. Toilet and shower were clean and modern and very close to the tents.

    Barn on site selling lovely local ales and ciders. Nice walks direct from site.

    Staff welcoming and really helpful. Would definitely visit again.

    Disliked: 

    Didn't affect us as early in the season but the barn stays open until 10pm serving drinks so might be noisy for younger campers to sleep in peak season as tents very close to barn.
