Welcome To Lydden Farm Motorhome & Caravan Club CL

The Certificated Location is the most easterly in Kent, situated in the centre of the Isle of Thanet, almost equally distant from Margate, Ramsgate and Broadstairs with its attractive harbour.

In common with all CLs we are limited to 5 caravans, which must be occupied, and stays are limited to 28 days and are for Caravan and Motorhome Club members use only.


Although the towns are nearby, with a shopping centre and supermarkets within a mile, the CL is located in a quiet rural area at the end of a leafy lane. The site, part of which slopes slightly, is well drained, enabling us to remain open all year.and has 16 amp electric hook-ups. Bridleways and footpathe provide a short cut to Margate for walkers as well as ample dog walking opportunities. Dogs are welcome if kept under control and on a lead whilst on site.


Other nearby towns of interest are Sandwich 8 miles, Canterbury 16 miles and Dover 20 miles.

About Us

Our site is near the end of a leafy lane which had little passing traffic. Sited on ½ acre, part of it slopes slightly. The ground drains exceptionally well as it is overlying chalk. This enables us to remain open all year as only in the most extreme circumstances is wet weather a problem, and then only for a very short time. 16 amp electric hook-ups are provided on all pitches and there is a wc and hand-basin with h & c water and hand-drier.


Dogs are welcome if under control. We have recycling facilities which we encourage caravanners to use. There are a number of tracks and footpaths to walk across Thanet's historically open landscape.


Directions: Turn off A299 (Herne Bay - Ramsgate) onto A256 (sp. Margate & Broadstairs). In 1¾ miles at 6th roundabout (adjacent to Marks & Spencer at Westwood Cross) take the 1st exit (Star Lane Link Road) and then 1st left into Star Lane and bear right into Manston Court Road . In ½ mile turn right by the telephone box into Valley Road. Site is in ¼ mile, immediately past the farm entrance..(Sat Navs may result in an alternative route from the Holiday Inn on the A299 which is narrow).


The Locality: Margate, Ramsgate & Broadstairs have clean sandy beaches. Broadstairs has an attractive harbour, and Ramsgate a yacht marina. Nearby Westwood Cross has several supermarkets and department stores. Sandwich has a very attractive old fashioned town centre with narrow streets and Flemish style buildings. Dover offers opportunity of day trips to France, and Canterbury with its Cathedral needs no introduction.


There are numerous pubs in the nearby towns for meals as well as the Jolly Farmer in Manston Village. The Manston Sports & Social Club (temporary membership available) in Manston has live country music and dancing on Friday evenings.

In common with all CLs we are limited to 5 caravans, which must be occupied, and stays are limited to 28 days and are for Caravan & Motorhome Club members use only.

The tariff is £10.00 per caravan, including electricity, with no additional charges.

It is preferable to pre-book during Bank Holidays, and school summer holidays.

Although Kent International Airport is 1½ miles away we are not in the flight path, and iit is currently closed but is likely to re-open soon.
