About Pete's Field

Care-free, pop-up camping in the Kent Downs, with ample space, glowing campfires and expert owners.

The Owner Says

Our quiet, campsite, Pete's Field, is popping up at Cole Farm in the Kent Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for the second time in 2019. We'll be open for four weeks only and will be offering back-to-basics camping – with campfires allowed. We have 20 pitches for people with their own tents and four bell tents set up for people who don't fancy pitching their own. If you like wildlife, walking, quiet camping and campfires, why don't you join us?

As a pop-up campsite with a focus on camping, we don't have a snazzy facilities block, wifi or even electric hook-up, we just offer classic camping where watching sunset over the Downs and toasting marshmallows on the campfire counts as entertainment. Having said that, as keen campers ourselves, we know how important it is to have clean toilets and a place to scrub up after a night around the campfire so we've got a cleverly converted container with flushing toilets as well as open air bucket showers and washing-up facilities. We keep Pete's Field peaceful with a no amplified music policy, quiet after 10pm and cars parked in a separate field.

Our bell tents are simply furnished and set up for four with a double mattress on a futon base for a comfortable night's sleep as well as fold-out beds for kids (or extra adults). We also provide a picnic bench, two camping chairs and a fire bowl with your tent and cooking equipment that's suitable for use over the flames. We'll even thrown in a few logs to help you get your campfire started. We have fire bowls and braziers available for campers to hire and logs for sale too.

Cole Farm is a small working farm owned by the Clayson family who keep a small herd of cows within their 60 acres. They have been kind enough to let us set up in a field in the middle of the farm so we can share the views they enjoy from the farmhouse. Situated in the tiny village of Paddlesworth, which has a pub, a church and a few farms, it is the perfect place to relax, read a book and generally enjoy the Kent countryside. It's also in a great location for visiting the seaside at Folkestone or Hythe, historic Canterbury or Dover Castle. As it's just a couple of miles from the Channel Tunnel and less than ten miles from the port at Dover, it also makes a great stopping-off point if you're on your way to or from France.

The campsite is on a working farm with a small herd of cows and direct access on to local footpaths.
