Detail information about this campsite

R.P. Schweinsbergen

"The campsite is situated within many trees. The vegetation is varied (medium to high). By the multitude of facilities, this campsite is ideal for families, heated swimming pool included in the price. Because the highway is not far away, there are the many local attractions which can be easily visited (Leeds Castle!)."

Travelling party: Couple


My partner and I stayed here for one night upon returning from France. We were greeted by a very friendly person in reception. As it was October it was not busy so we were told where the touring section was and could pitch up anywhere no hassle was nice after a long day travelling. The site was clean and tidy and toilet facilities were very good. You need a deposit for a card key for the showers and car barrier bear in mind if returning from Europe with only euros! Other facilities like the bar were closed so cannot comment on those but we enjoyed our nights stay here and would recommend the site.

We had to cut short our European tour due to family illness. After driving 450 miles across France in one day we phoned ahead to book a place. On arrival a man came out of a house and escorted my wife to the reception. Here he ignored her ACSI card. She questioned this but when he saw the motorhome he then said it would be more for a motorhome. When she told me this I became rather irate and challenged the man asking why he was demanding such an amount when they are registered with ACSI. He immediately backed down and said he might be wrong and to check with the girl in the bar. Really annoyed with this approach and have to question why he was in charge of the reception and what he would have done if I or any other visitor had paid \'his\' prices. Apart from that site looked ok.

We zijn in september op deze camping geweest, we stonden op een ruime plek maar deze was door de regen nogal drassig. Het was ver lopen naar het toiletgebouw waar de toiletten oud waren en krap. Het terrein was slecht verlicht! We moesten afrekenen in ponden tegen een zeer hoge koers. Wifi verbinding ( gratis) was redelijk. Met de trein naar Londen werkt ook goed en de camping ligt gunstig t.o.v. de veerboten van Dover.

Tja, meningen verschillen. Veel huisjes naast resterend kampeerterrein. Als passant krijg je niet de mooiste plek.Wel hard standing, en vol aan de prijs. Kaal en sfeerloos.Sani deels vernieuwd,maar slecht bijgehouden.Oude wc\'s in ander deel ondergebracht.Zou hier geen week willen staan.

Wij zijn hier van 21 t/m 24 juni 2015 geweest. Prima locatie voor een bezoek aan Londen. Mooie, goed verzorgde camping. Personeel vriendelijk en behulpzaam.
Wij waren hier zonder kinderen en hebben geen gebruik gemaakt van het zwembad.

Camping bien situé, dans un environnement agréable. Personnel charmant et serviable. Sanitaires parfaits et bien entretenus. Nourriture proposée peu variée mais excellente. A recommander pour un séjour idyllique!

Deze camping werd door ons bezocht in okt 2013. Er is een groot veld voor doortrekkers, dat was in deze periode zeer nat en drassig, dus onbegaanbaar met de camper en zeer weinig stroompalen of met grote afstand. En de camping rekende de toen 16 euro als 16 GB pound. Wij zijn hier met ontevreden gevoel verder gegaan.

Have just returned from a fab holiday here!!! Woodland was amazing, kids had so much freedom making dens for days!!!! Went in pool loads, which was heated great for an early morning dip. The staff were lovely, took us to pitch near park and let us know that there was entertainment in the bar in the evening most weekends. Toilets and grounds exceptionally clean. Definately returning at end of holidays for another stay, have even convinced my sister to bring her teenage children as there is a small arcade/games room and free wifi in the bar!
