There’s so much to do around our Selson Farm campsite that you’ll be utterly spoilt for choice. If you fancy heading off the farm, just a short walk from the campsite gate and through farmland, you’ll find public footpaths. These disappear across the fields in the direction of Ash or Woodnesborough. You don’t need to travel much further afield to take in the best of what the local area has to offer.
This provides the perfect place to mooch around for the day. It’s a beautiful medieval town on the river Stour that - as you may have guessed from its name - made the sandwich popular.
A great spot for brunch or a drink, there’s plenty of fantastic eateries in Deal. Head to Jasin’s Restaurant on the architecturally renowned Deal Pier with views of the open water stretching out to France. Alternatively, you can sample one of the many microbreweries in the area. Deal is also home to Walmer and Deal Castle, with both providing a lovely day out.
This is the ideal spot for both big and little kids. Be taken back in time to the 11th century as you explore the most iconic of all English fortresses at Dover Castle.
Margate is seaside town fun at its very best. It boasts boutique style shops and independent eateries for your day away. This is all alongside a great sandy beach, amusements and Dreamland where there’s always plenty going on.
For the best sandy beaches to head to nearby, try Broadstairs, Ramsgate or Margate. Sandwich Bay is also an excellent choice. Although it’s a pebble beach, it’s ideal for those family BBQs and for taking dogs to explore.
You’ll find an abundance of kid-friendly attractions nearby Selson Farm. There’s the Rascal Bay crazy golf course in Manston. Animal fans will love spending the day out at nearby Wingham Wildlife and Howletts Zoo.
Another wonderful option is Betteshanger Country Park. This has a cycle track where you can hire bikes, as well as events throughout the school summer holidays. The East Kent light railway is a magical four-mile round trip that takes you on a scenic journey between the picturesque villages of Shepherdswell and Eythorne. Plus, the Ramsgate Tunnels are well worth a visit for a guided walk through the largest network of civilian wartime tunnels in the UK.
For trips slightly further afield, there’s Broadstairs’ blue flag beaches. Joss Bay is good for surfing and refueling at Morellis ice-cream, or you can head to Margate for Dreamland and The Turner Contemporary, which is a favourite for culture vultures. Folkestone Harbour is also a great choice if you’re looking for a foodie’s delight.
Our Field Kitchen is open on busy nights and at weekends (you can see our food page for more details). But if you fancy heading offsite, the Five Bells eatery will offer you a warm welcome with traditional pub grub. There’s also a fish and chip shop and a Chinese restaurant all in Eastry village.
Head to Sandwich where you’ll be able to feast on a selection of fantastic options. The George and Dragon has a wonderful reputation and there’s also The Hop and Huffkin and the French ‘No Name Deli’ to pick from. If you fancy an Italian meal, there’s Luigis on the quay and you can enjoy sublime pizzas at The Drill Hall and treat yourself to gelato for pudding!
In Worth, one mile away, there’s The Blue Pigeon. This charming pub has an outside play area, making it a great option for families with children.
