Ellenden Farm Kent

If you’d like to go off-grid and get away from it all, then have a look at our handmade Shepherd’s Huts here at Ellenden Farm in Kent.  Situated in the middle of a working farm, this idyllic and picturesque campsite is surrounded by green fields and ancient, peaceful woodland.  In 2019 we are also excited to announce that not only have we completed the building of new showers for our guests but you will be able to book a stay in one of our two beautiful bell tents as well.

Campsite

The campsite is flat but natural and has views over Seasalter and Whitstable to the entrance of the Thames Estuary. It is surrounded by 200 acres of ancient woodland that was used by the Romans to travel to Canterbury as well as Henry VIII to hunt through.

The campsite is laid back and off-grid (no electricity or wifi) so if you want to get away from it all and unwind in a peaceful open field surrounded by nature then this is for you

Conservation

As of 2020, 180 acres of Ellenden Farm has been allocated to conservation. All fields are now put down to traditional English meadows. We use no pesticides or chemicals on the land and have joined forces with Natural England and the Bumblebee Conservation Trust teams to bring back as much fauna and flora as possible. When you stay at our campsite you will be staying in a conservation meadow full of wildlife!

Woodland

The woodland has established footpaths and is teeming with wildlife.  During early spring there is a thick carpet of bluebells and primroses that spread as far as the eye can see throughout the trees.  During Autumn enjoy the wonderful, changing colours of the countryside.  Adjoining this wood is the nature reserve, Victory Wood, where the timber was sourced by the navy to build Nelson’s flagship the Victory.

There are also large ponds close to the site which are home to many birds and plants.

Blair was a great host ensuring we had everything that we needed during our stay. We had a great time and would love to visit again soon!!

“Wir hatten eine wunderschöne und sehr entspannte Woche hier. Alles ist unglaublich liebevoll gestaltet und Blair ist ein sehr aufmerksamer Gastgeber, bei dem es einem an nichts fehlt. An die gemütlichen Sommerabende mit Feuerschale werden wir uns noch lange erinnern. Vielen Dank für die tolle Zeit!”
