Both of our campsites – whether it’s SelsonFarm a few miles southwest of Sandwich, or Lathe Barn just five minutes fromthe Dymchurch seafront – have so much to offer precisely because you’re campingin East Kent. In fact, there’s so much variety, from the beaches and the pubsto the architecture and the local towns, that you can personally carve aholiday experience that’s ideal for you.
The only problem is that with so manywonderful things in camp and also an amazing collection of activities throughoutEast Kent, figuring out where to start may initially seem overwhelming. Butthat’s always the case at the beginning of a great adventure. This page isabout helping you take that mass of options and roll them up into bite-sizedchunks for you to chew over.
So, where to get started in East Kent? We’ve got a few ideas:
Both of our camps are close to the Kent Coast. Even Selson Farm – which is by farour most inland camp – is nearby to Deal Castle Beach, which you can reach inabout 20 minutes by car. Cyclists could manage it in a little over half anhour.
The nearest beach to Lathe Barn can be reachedwithin five minutes by car, and some cyclists can do it in 10 minutes. Youcould even walk it, considering it’s a mere two and a half miles away.
And to be clear, it’s not just that East Kentcamping means you’re close to beaches, but we’d argue it gives you access tothe most varied collection of the finest beaches in the UK. It could be afun-filled day at Botany Bay, an exploration of coves andcastles at Kingsgate Bay, or the blue seas and golden sand dunes of Camber Sands. It’s like having an irresistiblebuffet of uniquely sun-kissed delights right on your doorstep.

It’s a must-see for natureenthusiasts. More family fun can be found at Dymchurch Amusement Park, which is filled withclassic attractions and that traditional seaside vacation feel.
And of course, it would be hard to discussmajor attractions in East Kent without at least one mention of the majesticWhite Cliffs of Dover.

Our campsite at Selson Farm in East Kent though, is just one part of what makes this part of the country such an amazing place to visit. Best of all for our visitors is the fact that almost everything that makes this area so special is within driving distance of Selson Farm. In fact, thanks to the immense countryside, even the drive to the likes of Dover or Margate – just to give a couple of examples – is part of each adventure.
If you can’t get enough of the gorgeous greenery which we’re gifted with, then the likes of Westgate Gardens in Canterbury is a mesmerising journey of natural wonderment. Speaking of great natural wonders, lets not forget the immense White Cliffs of Dover? It’s the most famous coastal experience close to our campsite East Kent, but one look at the beauty of the golden sands of Botany Bay or Viking Bay Beach should prove that it’s far from the only windswept jewel in the crown of the Kent coast.
East Kent is also an area of great history, filled with lots of classic seaside towns like Margate. These bring back memories of sticks of rocks and candy floss on a sunny day. Alongside these are the many amazing feats of historic architecture like Canterbury Cathedral or Margate Tudor House. For more cultural highlights, there are also great venues like the Marlowe Theatre or Dover Museum. Just as vital are all the amazing little businesses, places to eat and independent highlights which might not ‘make headlines’, but are key in appreciating the individuality of each and every town and coast.
All the parts of East Kent – just like each of the attractions we’ve mentioned here – are individually wonderful things to experience. But all of these things are made even greater as a whole by the incredible diversity of unforgettable memories each element of this truly one of a kind part of the world has to offer. We’re privileged to be part of East Kent, both contributing to and enjoying everything it provides to us and our visitors.
