This is our second stay at this campsite and we have already booked to come back. This time we came with 3 families, and the staff were so accommodating in fitting us in with two very large tents. The shower facilities are great, modern and very clean. We had a lovely area in the oak field near the lovely children's... More

Just returned from 5 days at Thriftwood. Chose this particular campsite after reading the great reviews but unfortunately that wasn't our experience. Drive into the site is lovely with well tended gardens and check-in was very easy with receptionist being very friendly. From then on in, things went downhill. Couldn't get tent pegs into the ground which in fairness to... More

We stayed beginning of July and the place was busy but amazingly it was also very quiet. Staff all very helpful and friendly, even the slightly mad woman on reception. LOL Showers and toilets are some of the best I've seen and were kept very clean despite some camper best efforts! We are going again next week with friends.

I've stayed last weekend at this campsite with my boyfriend and my dog. We had an amazing experience: toilets and showers are very clean, so easy and comfortable to use. Truly recommend this place. Very nice for long walks around the park, small villages and towns around. The only problem was the pitch we stayed was just next to the... More

Love this place, great atmosphere every day despite the weather and fabulous facilities on this family run park. We have enjoyed many happy times in the bar and pool and with the friendly staff, looking forward to many more. The park has undergone significant improvements recently which only further enhance the character. Set within the beautiful Kent countryside with access... More

Hi James, Always good to welcome you and your family back to our park. Glad, you liked our changes, as they cost me an arm and a leg. More improvements to come towards end of this year. In the meantime, don't hesitate visiting us a couple of times more :) All the best Mark More
