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 re-joins near Densole, continue through village and the site is just past the Black Horse Inn on the left. You can approach the site from Canterbury but the M20 route is better. There are special arrangements for booking and paying for the ferry pitches. For non-ferry bookings the arrival time is 1.00pm


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.  People staying for one night may 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. Since our last visit in 2016 the Club have added 10 serviced pitches and rebuilt the Reception and Information room. There is a small area for tents with its 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. TV reception was very good via our rooftop aerial. Service points are dotted around the site and a motorhome service point is near to reception, unfortunately this has still not been upgraded to a drive over waste point and still requires heavy drain covers to be lifted. There are two toilet blocks at either end of the site. The upper block is probably in need of an upgrade. The lower one is more modern and includes a drying room and separate disabled accessible toilets/showers. 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. The 4G signal is reasonable.

Whilst the site is used a lot for people going to and from the ferries  Black Horse Farm is well worth a stay in its own right with lots to do in the area. There is a regular, every 20 minutes, bus service between Canterbury and Folkestone, both about  half an hour away. The bus stop is not far from the site entrance outside the Black Horse pub.  Just across the road from the site is a small well stocked general store, which includes a Post Office. Further along the road is the Black Horse Inn, which serves food. About a mile from the site towards Canterbury is the Folkestone Garden Centre. 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 accessory shop and a Lidl supermarket. Also, in Hawkinge is the Kent Battle of Britain Museum but be warned they have a very strange attitude to cameras!
