Embers Knowlton, Campsite in Kent - The Knowlton Estate

Embers Knowlton, Campsite in Kent

New for 2021! Embers has opened another campsite in the picturesque Kent countryside, just 10 miles from the coast.  The site is located on a large local estate called Knowlton, giving you an idyllic place to pitch your tent and relax.

The campsite is situated in a parkland with large oak trees, open spaces and countryside to enjoy whilst you stay with us.  If the stunning campsite is not enough to keep you occupied, you can walk to the local gastro pub only a couple miles away or visit the local beaches in Sandwich, Kent.  You’ll also find everything Embers is known for with your own fire baskets included on every pitch for campfires, hire bell tents and our famous wood-fired pizzas.

We want you to enjoy your stay at Embers just as nature intended, but that doesn’t mean going without clean facilities. 

All our bathrooms are kept meticulously clean and have flushing toilets and piping hot showers…a real comfort when you are camping, leaving you refreshed and ready to take on the day ahead, but please don’t forget to bring your own towel, as these aren’t included.

There are large spaces for games  - so bring a football and enjoy a kickabout with the family. Embers is a tent only site, so you can pitch your family tent on our generous pitch sizes or hire a 5m Bell tent, pre-pitched before your arrival with superior airbed options.

Our onsite shop serves barista coffees, delicious hot food, snacks, drinks and some camping essentials.

You'll find our site on a large parkland at the Knowlton Estate . With such a spectacular views, we'd hate to spoil it with cars so we ask that after unloading your vehicle you park in the overnight car-park for the duration of your stay. 

Check in is from 2pm until 8pm. You can drive directly up to the site where our staff will be there to check you in and then direct you to your pitch so you can set up camp. Once you've unloaded, we ask that you move and park your vehicle in the car park. No vehicles are allowed on site once check in has closed. This keeps the campsite full of safe, open space, perfect for little ones to be running around in.
