Great for a weekend - small but pretty

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely couple of nights in the caravan and our four year old daughter thought it was all one big adventure! Thankfully the weather was good as it is rather small inside, but we had a good set-up with chairs and a picnic table outside - all provided with the caravan.

The interior is all retro in style with a comfortable double bed and single bench. The bedding is cosy - duvets and good pillows. We had a couple of issues namely the double bed's middle board kept slipping and the corkscrew was missing(!) but the owner came round to sort it out for us. We did later find that there was no chopping board or sharp knife, but didn't need to get in touch with the owners again but I feel sure that he would have come round.

The campsite was clean, well run and the owners were friendly and helpful. The position of the site is convenient for both Whitstable and Herne Bay and the cycle track in both directions was perfect for our daughter - easy and flat.

The caravan and the site are great for a short break with a difference.

Fun, novelty weekend

  • 4 of 5

We booked last minute and had a fun time overall. We stayed in Annabelle who was set up & waiting for us at the Hampton Bay Park campsite. She was everything we hoped she'd be. Really cute & chintzy with lots of lovely Cath Kidson accessories. The only slight criticism was that the bed kept collapsing - funny the first time but wore thin. The middle partition needs some attention. Also, could be helpful to have a few more instructions on the cooker etc and to let us know the fridge doesn't work. But hey - small things - as we did have fun. The weather was fab for us. The campsite is a half hour stroll into Herne Bay which is your quintessential English resort. Only 2 temperamental showers (light kept going off, water pressure dodgy and ran cold and then scalding). But very clean, friendly little site. Great for a mini break. Loved it so much overall that we're thinking of buying our own vintage caravan.

Brilliant accomodation Brilliant staff Brilliant activities available!

  • 5 of 5

From the summary, you can see that our stay has be gorgeous. The advertising says it all. The only criticism is that the fridge available is in the site bathroom cabin area/hall and not in the actualy caravan. I suggest a cooler to be brought along to keep cold drinks nearby due to this. Electric sockets are available and power extensions are advisable. There was a lot of storage spaces in the caravan and the kitchen was just right for its purpose although we did bring bbq equipment anyway.

The fellow campers and staff have been very friendly, Barry and Leslie, thanks for the welcoming atmosphere. And the owner, Andy, has been responsive to any questions.

The area is just behind the beach bay and broadstairs/joss bay just approximately 30min away for beaches and water sports fun!

Nice break away

  • 4 of 5

Nice, cosy and clean our 4 year old thought it was great fun. We stayed in mable. Owner and campsite owner helpful and friendly. Everything you need, although matches or a gas lighter in the caravan would be useful, but luckily we bought our own. Campsite in Herne Bay was quiet but close to both herne bay and Whitstable. Good bus link just up the road.

As described the caravan is retro so some surfaces around hob were a bit well used, and damaged laminate as it is original. Fabric upholstery and bedding all clean. Thank you

Childhood Holidays Revision

  • 4 of 5

The caravan is beautifully decorated, impeccably clean throughout and perfectly kitted out with everything required for cooking, eating and sleeping warm and cosy. I wanted my holiday to have a camping feel from the 70 ' when I was born, but with some modern bits such as electricity. More than happy to go without TV & WI-FI, which gave my son & I the opportunity to play chess and other board games, which we seldom get to play at home with the Internet around. If you're up for lots of walking then this is perfect for you because the nearest beach, pub and shop are a fairly long walk away from where the caravan is currently located at Hampton Bay Park. So if you want more to do and things to be closet then the owners of the caravan can arrange for to be moved. I'm hindsight I wish I had done this. However the owners of the site; Barry & Lesley try their hardest to keep the toilets and showers (currently 1 for Gents & 1 for Ladies, but these are being extended) unfortunately other holiday makers spoil these facilities for others and they were left dirty for the next person, despite Lesley's numerous cleaning visits throughout the day. Hopefully this issue will be resolved with more facilities. It's a shame that others spoil the experience.
