Well kept and tidy setting. Only two permanently sited caravans both with outside decking area. Good centre for touring. Quiet /peaceful haven. would recommend to anyone. Probably more suited to touring adults rather than beach seeking families.

About the neighbourhood
Situated in a rural location with lovely walks and scenery, great for relaxing. There are local attractions nearby suitable for families and couples and nice pubs for eating. Canterbury is only 20 minutes away and it is easy to have a day trip to London or even France. The orchard is quiet and peaceful and makes a great base to explore Kent from.
Getting around
There is a train station located in Chilham which is 10 mins by car and a 40 minutes walk. This gives a fast service to London.
