“Good base for exploring the coast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2012

Just returned from 2 nights at Little Switzerland and had a great time. Weather was forecast to be a bit unpredictable so it was great that we did not have to pay up front. Instead paid cash when we arrived, and it was very reasonable at around £10 pppn.

Site itself was well laid out - different levels and plenty of trees/bushes to separate the tent pitches. Plenty of couples and families around. Second night was quite noisy with a massive group who turned up but overall nice and quiet. Owner very friendly and helpful.

Well located with great views out to France and some good walks up to the top of the cliffs and down to the beach about 20 mins away. Folkestone is walkable down the beach and some nice pubs around the harbour.

Had a great time and would come back again.

The reason we picked this site was because it is the only one with a club house. On out stay the owner decided not to open it, reason he fell asleep, couldn't be bothered!
We were so disappointed as we were very unlucky with the weather and desperately needed the facility to dry off against the perilous weather!
The facilities were hideous out of date and never cleaned. They were reminiscent of a concentration camp and hadn't looked like they had any attention since god knows when looked like the 70's.
The price of the site does not reflect the quality so beware. It is all strictly CASH in hand as well. So come with plenty for your stay.
We won't be visiting again!!

When we entered the narrow road leading to Little Switzerland we thought …oh no what have we done …..desolate concrete , nothing attractive and visually stimulating and therefore no anticipation… however , once we reached the camp itself , wonderful breathtaking azure skies and lush green wilton carpet lawn awaiting the tent . Superb location . Rolling green hills and rocky heights . Well named. My only suggestion…do not pay in advance as the owner declared that he did not give refunds ; so be certain you intend to stay before you part with your cash. As a tent was used and the pitch was lower down the multi level hillside I should imagine checking the weather to ensure a dry sunny stay might be essential ! The café is adequate. There is a reasonable shop in the Campsite further down the road. For a shopping trip to Folkestone town a car is definately a requirement.
If you need to use the male toilet leave plenty of time and wear your hiking boots …it is up the rocky hillside and not for the faint hearted or physically frail …..other than these last two points ….perfect Little Switzerland…………
