Calm on the Farm

Calm on the Farm

It’s always sad when the season is over but we had amazing time and interesting guests from all walks of life who loved their time here on the farm just doing nothing. We’re looking forward to next year and seeing our regulars return. We will be opening up in May 2020 in time for the bluebells so if you fancy an early camp please let us know.

This year we have extended our conservation work by working with the RSPB to encourage the return of Turtle doves by recreating a suitable habitat for them. We have also put in more acres of wild bird seed mix around our fields to provide feed for the sparrows, finches and other birds. By returning the fields to English meadows we have had an increase in moths and butterfly numbers.

When you stay here you will be amongst all this wonderful nature to soothe the mind and the soul.

Come and be part of it next year!

Bank Holiday here at Ellenden Farm

Bank Holiday here at Ellenden Farm

Had an amazing bank holiday at the campsite, it’s so nice when people book and arrive who just’ get it’. The campers over the weekend were laid back and just chilled enjoyed the scenery but also rode the crab and winkle way on their bikes. They loved it. We also checked out the wonder Oyster company and  had amazing food and outstanding service, if you have not been here you need to!!

 The atmosphere is buzzing but laid back, the waitress are  helpful and make the whole experience enjoyable, the food is divine it is an experience not to be missed. It is best to book!!

So much space – celebrating Spring!

Space

There’s just so much space here at Ellenden Farm Camping in East Kent.  Our site was full over the Easter break and when I say full, the three shacks were occupied!  The Easter weekend coincided with the arrivals of the bluebells in our wood – a truly wonderful site to behold.

Three shacks in a ten acre field, really how much space do you need?

In a ten acre field surrounded by 200 acres of woodland full of bluebells and emerging wildlife, things can be tough doing nothing. Off grid, nothing to do but walk, talk, eat, drink, and sit around a fire and sleep under the stars.

Reasons to be cheerful

Camping is a healthy pastime!

A good night’s sleep is needed to keep your body functioning correctly – it reduces inflammation and improves the sleep cycle. Did you know that this is because you are in natural sunlight not artificial lights and that the light from the camp fire increases your levels of melatonin the chemical made to regulate sleep?

Time for yourself, time to get off-grid

2019 – Time to try off-grid camping?

2019 – Time to try off-grid camping?

What an enjoyable season 2018 was. We welcomed amazing, laid-back visitors who just got it. They got that we are off-grid, relaxed and the perfect place to download, destress and just do nothing! We had groups of cyclists, walkers and people doing nothing except bathing in nature, walking in the woods, playing in the meadow and sitting around a fire pit in the evenings sharing a meal and a beer together. ⠀

With uncertainty over holidays in Europe, the UK will continue to be the place to explore and enjoy. Our location is central to many attractions and eateries so as you get over Christmas and New Year and feel that you need a weekend break to look forward to, give us a call and reserve a shack for a weekend.
