Oldbury Hill Camping and Caravanning Club Site is situated outside the popular town of Sevenoaks in a picturesque part of rural Kent. Despite our quiet and secluded location, our park enjoys nearby access to the M26 motorway, which serves as a gateway to London or to the rest of Kent.
We have been awarded four-stars by the Camping and Caravanning Tourist Board, and we are open from late March until early November, and welcome motorhomes, tents, and touring campers onto our site, which is well guarded by the surrounding woodland. We are a child and pet friendly site with a play area and open spaces to run around in. Serviced pitches with electric hook-ups are available on-site, and Wi-Fi access is provided across the park. Laundry, washing up, and chemical waste disposal facilities are available for guests to use on site, too.
Our site is popular among walkers and hikers, who enjoy the two lengthy, circular walks that can be taken from the park. Both pass the locally famous Oldbury Camp, an Iron Age hill fort that is worth spending some time hanging around and exploring, although it is now covered by woodland so you cannot get as close as you once could! There are several other great attractions to be found on the local walks, including Ightham Mote, which has a restaurant and 14-acres of colourful gardens for you to view and explore; the perfect break before heading back to the site!
If you have brought children along with you, then there are many child-centric attractions to be found in the area. Penshurst Place and Gardens is one of these, with its parkland trails and fields where you can relax and enjoy a picnic or enjoy ball games, although there’s no doubt the youngsters will enjoy the toy museum more than anything else! Hever Castle has a maze that is as infuriating as it is fun, while those who want to travel into London can be at a central location within an hour from Sevenoaks station.
Heading further into Kent, shopping can be enjoyed in Maidstone and Ashford, while the Medway Towns are famous as the place where Charles Dickens was born and lived his life, with bus tours operating here taking in a number of notable locations. The famous seaside towns of East Kent are also easy to reach, while the cathedral and university city of Canterbury is also a great location to spend a day with the family.

There is a great area for walkers, with two circular walks passing over Oldbury Camp, a large Iron Age hill fort. The hill is now covered by woodland and managed by the National Trust. You can also walk from the site to Ightham Mote, a mediaeval moated manor house with a 14-acre garden and restaurant.
Local attractions worth visiting include Penshurst Place and Gardens, which includes a toy museum and parkland trails; Hever Castle, which has a water and yew maze; and Nepicar Farm, which is ideal for families with younger children.
You can also visit London by train from Borough Green and Sevenoaks stations.
