From outdoor yoga to wood-fire pizzas, we provide everything we can to make your stay as complete as can be. That way, you can choose exactly how you’d like to spend your time with us for the best break possible. The only problem is that our stunningly rural campsites aren’t really suitable for a beach. The sea is pretty determined to stay where it is, after all.
But the good news is we’re situated close enough to a variety of gorgeously sandy spots, a short enough while away that Fallow Fields camping can double as a spectacular beach vacation. And we think it says a lot about just how amazing it is as a location that with so many alternatives, it’s camping near Minnis Bay specifically that garners so much interest. Keep reading to find out why.
Before we get into what makes Minni Bay such a standout, it’s important to talk about practicalities. Our Selson Farm site is your best choice if you’re looking to visit Minnis Bay. It’s between 12.6 to 13.8 miles away, depending on your route. This means you can get there in under half an hour if you drive and within about an hour as a cyclist.
You couldn’t really call Lathe Barn camping near Minnis Bay – lovely though it might be. That said, if you drive, it’s possible to get there in a little over an hour, and we’d say that it’s more than worth the effort.
Tucked away in upper Kent, you might not notice Minnis Bay if you’re new to this part of the country. But we can assure you that it’s well worth your attention. It’s a wonderful location that can add even more magic to your camping experience. Here’s why:
It’s actually beneficial that Minnis Bay is an overlooked gem by many. It means that, for the most part, this is a pretty quiet beach. It’s ideal for the kind of rest, relaxation, and embracing of nature which is what we’re all about here at Fallow Fields. It’s also remarkably well-kept, with clear waters and amber sands overlooked by rolling green hills.
Plus, it’s very practical. For starters, it’s a dog-friendly beach, so it’s fun for all the family, even if that includes some four-legged friends. On top of that, parking is plentiful and, as most of our visitors will likely be driving there, that’s just one less thing to worry about.
Being near the Kent coast, it’s always a great idea for our guests to check out some of the scenic coastal walks we’re so blessed to be close to. Camping near Minnis Bay offers some of the best. The rugged landscapes of Minnis Bay are both stunning and provide walking routes suitable for all kinds of visitors.
The main event of such a journey is, of course, the awe-inspiring panoramic views of the English Channel stretching out to the horizon. Experience the golden shoreline meeting those sparkling blue waters with your own eyes. And if you’re a budding bird watcher, it’s also a fantastic spot, regularly used to help teach beginners the ornithological arts.
Much of the appeal of Minni Bay is in its peacefulness. But you can certainly mix it up with a variety of sports if you fancy something a little more pulse-quickening. The beach being quiet means it’s ideal if you want to make your own games, such as beach volleyball or cricket.
The breezy summer winds also make it a terrific choice for all kinds of watersports, from kiteboarding to kayaking, and there’s even a nearby football field. The weather is also a vital factor. If it’s too hot, most of us want to be in the shade rather than getting a sweat on. The Kent coastline typically provides a mild and moderately warm climate, making it ideal for all kinds of activities.
If you’re excited for Minni Bay camping, it’s likely because of the beach. That makes sense – it’s a marvelous swathe of gilded sands. But it’s important to note that you’re near some lovely local spots, too. This includes cafes and a restaurant.
Best of all, you’re a mere mile away from the lovely village of Birchington on Sea, which is as full as an incoming tide with local character. There’s churches, museums, and lots of local businesses nearby for you to check out and really make a day of it.
There’s plenty of competition across the Kent Coast for awe-inspiring sunsets. Just take the wonderful Camber Sands as an example. It’s no small compliment that we say camping near Minnis Bay gives you access to one of the most glorious sunsets in the southeast.
The view out of Minnis Bay is always enchanting, but it captivates even more when the sky transforms into a canvas of warm hues and covers the tranquil English Channel in a glow. It’s as though a magical spell has been cast brightly upon the Kentish waters.
There’s tons of things to do both in our camp and in the local area, which is fantastic. It means that we can offer more experiences to even more people, of all different persuasions and preferences.
That said, some just feel like an absolute match. It’s no secret that the thing we think makes our camps special above everything else is that we embrace our beautiful natural surroundings. We’re all about taking a break from the stresses of the world and getting back in touch with the simple things. Put simply, we think that some time in nature is hugely beneficial to us all. There’s no experience that can top what nature can provide.
The likes of Minnis Bay – the quiet simplicity of its coast providing a glorious blank canvas on which you can paint memories – can only supplement what we offer.
