Lucy's Barn: Tipi

General

  • Simple field site in Kent with tap and electric supply
  • Brands Hatch racetrack and Bewl Water fishing within 20 minutes' drive
  • An hour by car from Canterbury and Folkestone beach

From Neolithic long barrows to Napoleonic forts, medieval castles to Second World War munitions sites, Kent is a county where the past seems very present. At Lucy's Barn, it's outdoor relaxation as your ancestors would have done it: a field, surrounded by trees and Kent countryside, with a water tap, electricity supply and little else between you, the peace of nature and the plentiful spread of stuff to see and do in the area.

Important business first: the nearest pub with food is in Stansted village, four minutes' drive away or a 20-minute walk. If you're into motors, the famed Brands Hatch circuit is five minutes away for race meets and driving experiences or for watery thrills, make for Leybourne Lakes Country Park (20 minutes) for scuba diving, kayaking, windsurfing and the simple pleasures of swimming. The lakes are part of a 93-acre site of woodland, grasslands and marshes, full of wildlife and well furnished with trails for walking and biking.

If you're truly addicted to all things aquatic, Bewl Water (45 minutes) is where you go for boating and fishing on the huge reservoir.

  • Electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Lovely open area and what seemed like freshly mowed grass. Always helps when having to walk to the toilet first thing in the morning in bare feet. Even though we booked for two nights we stayed for one. That was down to the weather and our borrowed tent. The tent wasn't the warmest. And it rained. So what with having a damp tent and a two year old. We made haste!

    Would come back again, for sure.

    Disliked: 

    Despite the help we got and a friendly face when we arrived. We weren't actually checked in. As in I had my email ready to show via my phone, but it wasn't needed. Did feel that anyone could have rocked up and pitched. I'm being picky - apologies.

Local attractions

If the birdsong on the site gives you a taste to see things wild and feathered, the Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve (20 minutes' drive) is the spot for communing with the kingfishers and hailing the herons, throughout a spread of lakes, ponds, pools and reed beds. Wilder still, Howlett's Wild Animal Park an hour away has gorillas and leopards, moneys and the largest herd of elephants in the UK.

To get into Kent's history, you could start way way back with the Neolithic long barrow at Addington (15 minutes), then carry on to Knole Castle (half an hour) to see a 600-year-old building still looking pretty fine in its 1,000-acre deer park setting.

For a trip not quite so far back in time, take an hour's drive to New Romney for the start of the famed Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway whose steam engines will puff you pleasantly through the marshlands down to Dungeness. The deserted beach there is well worth a look and a photo opp; the sands at Folkestone (an hour) are far livelier while the Kent Battle of Britain Museum reminds you how this friendly coast was once a strategic frontier.

A similar distance from the site, Canterbury took some hits in the war but its 14th-century cathedral (on the site of a sixth-century one) still makes for a fine visit, as do the little lanes in the surrounding old town.

Must see

  • Ightham Mote (8.7 kilometres)
  • Knole (9.5 kilometres)
  • Down House - Home of Charles Darwin (14.2 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Ightham Mote (8.7 kilometres)
  • Old Soar Manor (8.7 kilometres)
