In the summer there are a few who like to go to places like Australia and America. Then there are a few who like to holiday in Europe; places like Spain and Italy. However, this year, rural Kent seems to be the place to go for a family holiday according to Lonely Planet.
The rural country of Kent is located perfectly on the south east coast of England. This gives it just enough distance from London to have a great road network yet far enough away to be well out of all the hustle and bustle of the city. Plus as it’s on the south coast it gets more than a fair amount of sun, making Kent the perfect location for a motorhome holiday this summer.
Take a look at what Kent has to offer the intrepid family
Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest
For the outdoorsy family, there is always Kent’s Bedgebury Forest. This makes up the largest area of natural beauty in Europe and has been voted the second best AONB in the UK. This makes it perfect for a quiet exploration with the family and really getting into the heart of summer with some forested fun. Boasting natural wildlife, high ropes course’, mountain bike trails and lots and lots of hiking. This has something for everybody on your next family holiday.
There is a camp site on the actual forests land its self, which allows motorhomes. Making this the perfect location for a motorhome retreat with the whole family this summer. The camp site even boasts a bush course to be able to train the little ones how to survive in the wild. Courses start from as little as £6 and run on weekends.
Saint Mary’s Bay
When you simply want to relax in the sun, Saint Mary’s Beach is the place for you. It is located just far away from the nearest town to make it a bit quieter but not far away to deprive it of necessities. This small beach is on the far south coast of the Kent county and is connected by an A road to the outside world. It is backed by 3 large golf resorts and a private mansion. It may sound like a very high-end place but in reality it’s very competitively priced when you get to the nearest town of New Romney.
The nearest motorhome campsite to here would be New Romney Camping Site. This little retreat comes in at £5 a night for two adults in a motorhome and has a pool and restaurant.
Maybe history is more your thing? Well, there is always Dover Castle. Boasting wartime museums like displays dating all the way to its creation in 800BC all the way up to WWII. This castle has something for anybody interested in history. The castle its self is based in Kent’s small town of Dover but has a lot of country side in the surroundings where motorhome camp sites are common practise.
The closest campsite we could recommend would be The Chequers Caravan Club. This is a caravan club that gives discounts to members but it also pretty cheap without a membership, so is well worth a visit.
The Historic Dockyard Chatham
If you love a good museum then The Historic Dockyard Chatham could be just right for you. This museum has been the star of many TV shows ranging from Mad Men and The Golden Compass. The location its self is a step back from the modern world and you will feel immersed by its very nature as soon as you arrive. Try it for yourself this summer.
The nearest mobile home camp site would be the Fell Barn Inn. Don’t be tricked by the name, the site isn’t actually an inn. It offers an electric hook-up for motorhomes for the night along with a staff who can guide you on other destinations to carry on your journey.
