Black Horse Farm CC Site, 385 Canterbury Road, Densole, Kent, CT18 7BG, Tel  01303 892665

 

 

To find site:- Continue to the end of the M20 towards Dover, just past the tunnel on the A20 take slip road signed for A 260 and follow signs for Canterbury. The first part of this road is new and bypasses some of the narrower parts of the old road which it rejoins near to Densole, continue through village and the site is just past the Black Horse Inn on the left. Pre-booked one night stopovers have to be paid for in advance of arrival, no UK arrivals after 8.00pm.

 

Site is open all year and accepts non-members and tents. I would think that it would be advised to book ahead in peak season. This is a nice site situated about 10 miles from Dover and about 8 miles from Eurotunnel. As a result those making their way back and forth to the Port, or the Tunnel, frequently use it. The site has a special Ferry Area, all hardstandings, immediately behind reception for early departures to minimise disturbance to longer stay campers.  One nighters my also be allocated pitches in the main site. The rest of the site is a mix of grass and hardstanding pitches although in recent years more hardstanding have been added. There is a small area for tents with it’s own separate parking area. The tree planting and shrubs are just starting to mature which enhances the look and feel of the site. Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 16 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. Likewise service points are dotted around the site and a motorhome service point is near to reception although still requires heavy drain covers to be lifted. There are two really excellent toilet blocks at either end of the site although the one near the ferry area closes very early for cleaning. Other facilities include a children’s play area, a dog walk and an information room. This site also has storage facilities. Black Horse Farm has WiFi installed and time may be purchased online.

 

Up-date May 2016. During our latest stay we noted that the Reception block was being complete rebuilt. Also at the far toilet block a separate disabled toilet/washroom was being built.

 

Whilst the site is used a lot for people going to and from the ferries  Black Horse Farm is well worth a stay in it’s own right with lots to do in the area. There is a regular bus service between Canterbury and Folkestone with a bus stop near the site entrance.  Just across the road from the site is a small general store, which includes a Post Office. Further along the road is the Black Horse Inn, which serves food, we enjoyed our meal when we visited but they only accept cash payment.  There are many other opportunities to explore the surrounding are if you stay is longer than just over night.  At Hawkinge there is a caravan dealer.
