A warm welcome is extended by Michael & Lesley to our lovely new CS Camping site at our friendly family Farm in the heart of the Weald of Kent. This area is known of the Garden of England, celebrated for its oast houses, apple orchards, abundant woodlands and captivating villages with timber framed houses. It was made famous, for those who remember, in the charming TV series “The Darling Buds of May” and it is possible to retrace the steps of Ma & Pa Larkin hereabouts.
The 4 acre level field is bounded by both bluebell woods on one side and ancient hedges on the others creating a sheltered setting that has been harvested as a natural hay meadow for many years providing a rich mixture of wild flowers & grasses. Tucked away in a corner of the field is a fishing lake which has evolved to be home for a wide variety of native aquatic fauna and flora including water voles!
Whilst our facilities are not extensive what we have are modern, clean & the highest standards.
• Modern, clean, heated, male & female toilet block each with 2 toilets & a wash basin with hot & cold water.
• One High spec shower with plenty of hot water.
• Water point in field
• Conveniently appointed chemical disposal point in field
• Shared access fridge & freezer
• Fresh free range eggs usually for sale
• On site private fishing (only available for our campers) at an additional charge of £2.50 a rod per day.
• On site private viewing of Bubble Car Museum can be arranged
• Lovely country pub that provides home cooked meals in easy walking distance – across fields if you prefer.
• In easy reach of mainline station to London & many local places of interest.
Our guests tell us they are looking for peace, an escape from daily life and feeling a sense of being at one with nature. In response, we are trialling the idea of providing access ways connecting to large mowed camping bays leaving swathes of the field over to the wild flowers. Over time, we hope to carefully improve the facilities as the site evolves enhancing our surroundings without introducing too many rules.
At present we have no hard standing or electric hook ups and we regret we cannot accept credit card payment. As a CS site we can only accept a maximum of 5 motorhomes/caravans & up to a maximum of 20 tents, so it is never likely to be crowded!

Directions
Leave Maidstone on the A274towards Headcorn. Continue down Sutton Valance Hill to the petrol station on the left. Take the right hand turning signposted to Staplehurst approximately 1 mile, past the T junction. Boarden Lane is the next left turn with a finger post pointing to Boarden Farm. Proceed down the single track road just past the wooded section & you will see the Camping & Caravan Club sign on your left hand side. This marks the entrance gate to the camping field. Please drive onto the field and a pitch will be allocated to you or if there is no one about please wander down to School House Farm, the 1st house on the left hand side just before the sharp right hand bend.

Reviews of School House Farm Camp site

Fourth time at Schoolhouse- still secluded, still very clean and owners very friendly and helpful. Great place to spend a relaxing weekend. The only setback is that the local pub, The Hawkenbury, was very disappointing for food this time round. That said, it doesnt stop you BBQing on site.
