Ok, if anyone is interested in coming to Kingsdown in September, it’s near Deal in Kent. Beautiful countryside, camping on the cliff overlooking the English channel, easy walk down to the beach (I know it’s easy cos I can do it relatively easily!). I do not think you are suppose to swim in this section of the beach because of currents, but beach combing is fantastic (one of the girls found a skeleton of a turtle!), and paddling is ok. Loads of castles nearby; Deal, Walmer castle and Dover Castle, a very impressive Norman Castle and the tunnels from the war to explore. All are english heritage. Ooh and excellent ship watching, as obviously the ferries etc go right past on their way to Dover port!
There’s also boat trips from Dover too; one is pretty cheap and is just going out for a boat ride; the other is more expensive and is a sea safari, including going near the seal sanctuary.
Camping is £4.5pppn. 3yrs and under are free. If interested I just need to know how many so i can let the camp site know. Payment is to me.
The site its self has electric hook up, water stand pipes dotted around, washing up area, toilets and free hot showers. (note: we tend to camp close to the shower/toilet block and not near the hook ups)
Off ground campfires are allowed, and there’s also a couple of very large firepits too.
Cars are allowed on the camping field too.
Sorry it’s not in the school holidays, I’d arranged this camp with local home educators in mind, and we wanted to avoid peak charges. Everyone is welcome of course and you do not have to home educate either!
