We stayed here for two nights in July and thoroughly loved the site. Each pitch has its own plot in the woods which is ‘fenced’ off using natural branches and own fire pit. Nice showers and washing up area. Our only gripe would be we...More

The campsite is well kitted out - aside from lack of drinking water from the taps. The showers are clean, warm and the power of the shower surprisingly okay. Great little on site shop where you can buy snacks, toilettries, water and wood (cash only)....More

Stayed here for an overnight ‘Dad & Lad’ camp. The pitch itself was large but you would struggle to get anything larger than a small 4 man tent on it due to layout. Compacted, lumpy mud, imbedded with stones but at least it was dry....More

Damp start on the Friday, but we managed to get up three tents ready for a great weekend without getting to wet. We were given a spot in the furthest point of the woods which was good for the kids to run about safety and...More

Booked last minute, great site, loved the woods and compost toilets. Main issues were 1) there is no drinking water, you have to buy bottled water from the shop, 2) the swing rope was taken down due to fraying, the only playground on site for...More

About
Description
Remember when you could run wild in the woods..? Play for hours on a rope swing, climb a tree, build a den or toast marshmallows on the fire? Come and immerse yourselves in our beautiful ancient woodland. Allow More nature and the magic of the campfire to send you home feeling healthy, energised and relaxed. We offer quiet, off-grid woodland camping for real campers and their families that want to get back to nature. You can expect a secluded pitch under the trees with plenty of space to yourselves plus lovely new hot showers and loos for a few creature comforts. We also run bushcraft lessons, have our own free-range hens, a local farm shop and acres of woodland to explore. The woods are on top of the North Downs in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As a designated local wildlife site, conservation and preservation of the woodland environment is an important part of how we run the camp. If you prefer your campsite with mown lawns, plastic playgrounds and a swimming pool then we're probably not for you.. Less

Yes. The nearest pub is probably the Amazon and Tiger in Harvel that do Sunday lunches. There's quite a few lovely pubs around the area but it depends how far you want to walk. The Cricketers and The Kings Arms in Meopham... More
