Traditional family camping and bell tent glamping on a working fruit farm, two miles from the beautiful inlet town of Sandwich in Kent

The team behind Fallow Fields in Kent certainly have an eye for what’s cool in the world of camping. They’ve successfully been running a 'Glampervan' hire company for years now, renting out über-retro campers from the 60s and 70s, and it’s with genuine excitement that we discovered they’ve now opened a campsite with a similarly classic vibe. If you like the old-school image of camping – campfires, starry nights and not a caravan in sight – then this is the place to go.

Set a couple of miles back from the coast, in a four-acre field on the bucolic Selson Farm, Fallow Fields is a place with a ‘less is more’ attitude. Facilities are on the basic side – toilets, showers and campfire pits to hire – and there’s a small shop selling essentials (along with some of the farm’s own produce).

Above all, though, it’s camping’s more natural pleasures that will fill your time. Pitches are nestled between pear, apple and cherry trees, ripe for picking during summer stays, while spring campers can try asparagus and freshly grown veg. Space is ample and kids can run wild, getting muddy knees and throwing frisbees around, gradually wearing themselves down for a good nights sleep.

Those seeking the same laid-back holiday but wanting a few more comforts can try one of ten furnished bell tents available to rent. Inside, they feature comfortable double beds, and two sofas that can also fold out into extra sleeping space if needed. They sit alongside thoughtful touches, like hot water bottles, bedside tables and camping lanterns.

However you choose to pitch up though, the location is a happy constant. On the eastern edge of the North Downs, the farm is surrounded by fantastic local footpaths and a 25-minute walk will take you into the town of Sandwich, situated along the banks of the River Stour. The town’s pebble beach, a little further east, is particularly pleasant and backed by a large nature reserve, while nearby Broadstairs and Ramsgate beaches are perfect for sand-seekers.

The campsite owner says

It won't be long before reality seems a million miles away at Selson Farm. Sitting in a gentle valley in the North Kent Downs you're surrounded by fruit orchards and asparagus fields. Bring your own tent, or if you fancy a bit of luxury stay in one of our bell tents kitted out with beds and bedding, we also throw in fairy lights and bunting! Or if you fancy something a bit different, there's also retro campervans available to hire. We all remember the great camping trips, and the campsite normally has a lot to do with it; the vibe of the place, where you're pitched, the surroundings, the facilities, the local area. You come back exhausted, grubby, but you've loved every minute, you have felt a million miles away from reality, you have a smile on your face and are already planning the next trip. That's what we call the Fallow Fields Feeling: A handpicked site in a great location with more than enough room for everyone. Campfires to cook on by day or keep warm by night. A retreat area to escape, have a cup of coffee, play games. A shop stocked with local produce & camp basics. Local food vans on Friday and Saturdays to give you a break from cooking
