Go Glamp is situated just outside the villages of Headcorn and Smarden in Kent. Although tucked away in the Kent countryside, our six-acre, intimate, family-run glampsite is well situated for visitor attractions:
Leeds Castle https://www.leeds-castle.com/home
“The loveliest castle in the world”
The Big Cats, our neighbours – quite literally!
The Big Cat Sanctuary Wildlife Heritage Foundation,
http://www.visitkent.co.uk/attractions/big-cat-sanctuary/217289 (See website for open days & events)
Port Lympne & Howletts
Headcorn Aerodrome hold regular events throughout the year (see website)
We are 30-40 minutes from the port of Dover & Folkestone to hop across the channel to France by high-speed train or ferry (arrive in Paris in just a couple of hours!). Or visit Medieval Dover Castle which stands on the iconic White Cliffs & is a popular English heritage attraction.
Central London is just one hour on the train direct from Headcorn station. The historic city of Canterbury with its famous & most stunning Cathedral is just a 45-minute drive or, in the other direction, the historic town of Rochester and Chatham Dockyard.
Explore the Kent countryside by foot, or cycle through the country lanes. If you fancy a spot of fishing Sam’s Lakes http://www.sams-lakes.co.uk with its well-kept lakes and grounds is just a two-minute walk away and just the spot to cast-a-line and kick back …
The nearby village of Headcorn hosts quaint tearooms, antique shop, post office, small local supermarket and the village pub – The George & Dragon, serving well-cooked food at reasonable prices. Travel in the other direction to the village of Smarden for The Smarden Bell public house or The Chequers. A little further and you will find a whole host of excellent eateries, pubs, restaurants, and takeaways.
Or stay and eat with us, we can provide you with ‘glampers breakfast’ if you so wish or you can ‘fire-up’ the BBQ and cook your own – the choice is yours!
Children are welcome but must remain under the supervision of a responsible adult, their safety is your responsibility at all times. Please be aware there are open waters around the site.
Dogs are welcome as long as they are accompanied by well-behaved owners who keep them on a lead & clean up after them! (Unfortunately, dogs cannot stay in the Shepherds hut)
