General

  • Glamping site on a 600-acre estate 10 miles from Canterbury
  • Within a half-hour drive of Margate and Howletts Wildlife Park
  • Kitchen, smart bathroom cabin and indoor/outdoor living areas

Well, isn’t this a splendid spot for smart sleeps?

The peaceful meadow of Glamping at Preston Court sits in is part of a whopping 600-acre estate just outside the village of Preston; days out at local wildlife parks, in Canterbury or on the beach are all within a half-hour drive, and it's a short amble from a nature reserve and the Little Stour river for rural rambles.

No carting heaps of kit around here: tents are fully furnished with proper beds and extra touches including duck down duvets and hot water bottles. Each has an electrical supply for heating, lighting and fans, and there's a well-equipped bathroom cabin a short trot away with toilets and powerful hot showers.

For breakfast, wander over to the Wendy house kitchen, where there’s a good stash of provisions including farm-fresh eggs. Those planning evenings of alfresco feasting will be chuffed to see plenty of outdoor seating and tables scattered around too, along with barbecues, firepits and a chiminea that can be fuelled by picking up a pack of firewood from the farm. (If you'd rather eat out, there are a couple of country pubs within strolling distance and several more a short drive away.)

Should it be a little chilly to sit out, stroll over to the site's geodesic dome, which has been kitted out with all the sheepskin rugs and twinkly fairy lights one could need for a cosy evening watching the sunset or stargazing...

    What a lovely night away we had at Preston court glamping! Exceeded our expectations from arrival we were met and given a tour and told about the beat spots to view the sunset, all the walks we could explore on and all the facilities that were provided. The kitchen is kitted out with everything you need from cups, plates to butter milk, tea bags and ketchup. BBQs (you’ll need your own coal bags) are on site for use and log burners too with logs provided, snug areas with blankets and toilet and shower rooms with hot running water and lovely soaps and mirrors extremely clean and comfortable for your stay. Izzy had arranged with myself a lovely surprise for our friends and decorated their tent and we were lucky enough to be upgraded too. The beds were amazing and the tents had everything you needed to feel right at home. Couldn’t think of a better place to relax and get away from the everyday! We will definitely be returning!

    Gorgeous place, well equipped with immaculate showers and eggs for breakfast, comfy bed and heater to keep us cosy

    Disliked: 

    A larger young group who were staying in 3-4 of the other tents; quite loud and took over the kitchen/group spaces. Can’t be helped with this kind of set up, but meant it wasn’t as tranquil as we had hoped

Local attractions

You may well spot local wildlife right there on site, but for guaranteed sightings (and a more exotic range of animals), there are two excellent wildlife parks about a 10-minute drive away. Head to Wingham Wildlife Park for a daily programme of talks and feeding sessions, or follow the trails around Howletts Wild Animal Park to see beasts from across the globe.

Canterbury, 20 minutes away, is a fab place for a day out, especially for historyheads: wander around the cathedral and the Roman museum, or hear the stories at the Canterbury Tales exhibition. And after that? Boarding a boat or gondola to see the city from the water.

If you fancy a beach day (or few), pack yourselves into the car and in less than half an hour you can be in Whitstable or Deal, or visiting Margate’s Turner Contemporary art gallery.

Must see

  • Howletts Wild Animal Park (6.0 kilometres)
  • St Augustine's Abbey (9.3 kilometres)
  • Canterbury Cathedral (9.6 kilometres)

National Trust

  • The White Cliffs of Dover (20.5 kilometres)
