This is our fourth year camping at Nethergong and each year it gets better. As a small group of 4 without children we choose to camp in the quiet tranquility of the duck pond and have seen herons, marsh harriers, an egret and even an arctic tern along with plenty frogs and ducks and the odd bat! We were lucky enough to be staying on the night of the 12th when there was a fantastic display of shooting stars - a wonderful sight. Even at this peak time there was plenty of space and the site did not feel crowded. The shop is selling more now than last year which was very useful for all the things you forget! Our friends work in schools so like to avoid children when on holiday! Although the site obviously has a lot of children staying we found them well behaved and loving the freedom of playing in the woods and making camps.
Earlier on in the year we spent a wet and windy weekend in the Romany trailer which is situated in it's own little glade. Which despite the weather was a wonderful and peaceful way to spend time relaxing. Great if you don't want to put a tent up!
With plenty to do locally from shopping in Canterbury, sandy beaches, nature reserves and historic museums - we will be certainly returning again.
