Owner description: Betteshanger provides a once-in-a-generation opportunity for everyone to see how 'old energy' can be transformed into 'new energy'. It connects people with energy and energy with people. Coupled with miles of traffic free cycling, muddy mountain bike trails, a sensational events programme, woodland, grassland, marshland and wide-ranging, hands-on activities including archery, fossil hunting and den building, Betteshanger is Kent's must-visit destination.

“Good Fun”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We really enjoy our visits to Fowlmead and return time after time. There is something for most people as long as you like being outdoors. Onsite you will find cycle hire, showers and a cafe along with parking. There are numerous routes you can take round the site either by foot, road cycling (with no traffic) or mountain biking.

The site maybe a bit flat for serious mountain bikers but the do run several enduro races throughout the year for those that like more of a challenge.

“Good fun and fairly cheap”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

We spent a good 2 hrs cycling round the mtb tracks at this park and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Bike he was reasonable, bikes were in good condition and plenty of Feb was had. Cafe was very basic but food was hot and served promptly despite the fact ee were told there was a delay. Toilet facilities clean. Would go again as long as the weather was gold. Cheap parking, plenty of picnic places and I'm sure lots of wildlife if you take time out from whizzing round on your bike.

“Great Mountain Biking”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Parking is only £2 which is a major bargain!

The biking trails are well maintained & there are lots of different routes.

I can't bring myself to use the cafe due to the permanent smell of chip fat!

“Nice place to walk or ride.”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

We have been coming here since it first opened..Nice place and that they have a small cafe, means you can have a bite to eat or drink before or after your trek... The play park for the children is a must!
