Clifftop Camping: 10/10 views

General

  • Off-grid farm site outside Eastchurch on the Isle of Sheppey
  • Views over the Thames Estuary and a 10-minute drive from beaches
  • Meet the farm animals on site and buy free-range eggs for breakfast

Cooking up a few fresh free-range eggs for a cracking Kent coastal brekkie? What a way to start the day.

That terrific view out over the Thames Estuary isn’t the only option as breakfast backdrop for guests at Clifftop Camping though. Pitches at this scenic Isle of Sheppey farm site are sorted on a pick-your-own basis, so you’re welcome to meander around the meadow, woodland and pond areas too before selecting a spot in which to settle.

And those eggs? Well, they’re from the hens that reside on this working farm. You can buy their offerings while you’re staying here, and meet their pals too: the current roster includes sheep, goats, horses, ponies, ducks and rheas.

This is an off-grid site so you’ll need to step away from the gadgets (sea views trump screen time anyway, eh?). It’s also pretty stripped-back on the facilities front, but there is one compost toilet and one tented chemical toilet, and you can access water in the farmyard.

For eats and supplies, a couple of pubs and shops are a mile away in Eastchurch; bigger supermarkets, restaurants and the like are 10 minutes’ drive away in Sheerness. Ins and outs should be fairly easy here, as you’re only around a 20-minute drive from the M2 and an hour or so from London. If you’d rather roam on public transport, there’s a bus connection to Eastchurch from Sheerness station.

Can be windy.08/03/2021

    This was my second stay. Unfortunately, this time weather was not great. It was VERY windy when I arrived. I had to wait couple of hours before wind went a down a bit, to pitch on the cliff edge. Also had to tie the tent on one side to my car roof rails, because wind was flattening it.

    Of course, you could pitch on the other side of field, by the trees or in the small forest, but I wanted to be on the edge.

    This time I brought my own portable toilet, so didn't use compost toilets and can't comment on their state.

    Disliked: 

    No fresh eggs available and I didn't bring any, thinking I will buy on the farm. That's minor thing of course.

Amazeballs! Nature lovers' paradise!08/01/2021

    This campsite is a truely beautiful place to pitch up! It was so refreshing to be immersed in the natural world and to get away from the grey concrete jungle, I was sad to leave! This campsite offers a wide choice of delightful camping spots; from secluded woody spaces and sheltered magical glades to the more open space of the clifftop with its amazing views over the sea. We watched the most amazing sunset from the cliff and although I was never up early enough to see the sunrise, I'm pretty sure it would be possible to witness this too.

    While I was there I was fortunate and reassured to see an abundance of wildlife including loads of bees, butterflies and dragonflies along with plenty of meadow flowers... There were many different bird calls that I recognised and I'm grateful to say that I even had a marvellous encounter with a cute little hedgehog on our first night as it was investigating the area around our tent!

    The owner is very friendly and helpful and we were able to buy firewood and fresh eggs from her free roaming chickens. Firepits were also available for hire although we had taken our own. This is definitely somewhere I will return and will hopefully be able to stay for a bit longer next time.

    Fantastic views, peaceful location, welcoming owner, bags of space. Flat or slightly sloping spots a plenty. Campfires encouraged and a number of firepits provided. Great spot for complete relaxation. We'll be back.

    Disliked: 

    "Thunder box" toilet but didnt need it as have own facilities. Not a lot within walking distance from site, no nearby access to beach unless you fancy a treacherous steep soft mud scramble.

Directions


Clifftop Camping is part of Connetts Farm.

When you arrive in Eastchurch, turn left into Warden Road, then bear left at the bottom of the hill. You will pass some houses on your left and after a distance of approximately 300 metres you will see Connetts Farm on the right, down a farm road lined with tall poplar trees.

Local attractions

If you’ve picked a place called Clifftop Camping it’s highly likely you’ll be after a bit of coast action. The quickest way to get it is to clamber down the cliffs (easier than it might sound; no abseiling needed) for a quiet little beach with some fab sea fishing to be done. Other options nearby include Minster Leas beach (10 minutes’ drive) and Shellness beach (20 minutes), where there's also a naturist area for folks seeking a skinny dip.

Active types are well sorted for things to keep them busy too: saddle up at the stables five minutes away, tee off at Sheerness Golf Club (10 minutes’ drive) or breeze over to Barton's Point Coastal Park (10 minutes) for a nature trail, adventure playground and watersports.

For a nod to travels of the past, it’s off to Eastchurch Aviation Museum (five minutes) or a narrow-gauge ride on the Sittingbourne and Kemsley Light Railway (20 minutes). Doddington Place Gardens are just over half an hour away if you’re more interested in gentle wanderings.

Must see

  • Whitstable Museum and Art Gallery (13.4 kilometres)
  • West Gate Towers Museum (21.4 kilometres)
  • Canterbury Heritage Museum (21.6 kilometres)
