Gooseberry Field Campsite is a glamping business with six luxury glamping bell tents, a hot tub and wood fired pizza oven based in Pluckley in the heart of Kent. Gooseberry Field is owned and run by John and Kerstin, two aging post punk hippies who in 2013 managed to finally escape from a hectic lifestyle in the City to a simpler, more relaxed way of living, with chickens, pigs, farmland and open fires.
"When we lived in London we found it difficult to find places close to the city, that we could escape to. Places where we could relax with a bottle of wine, an open campfire and a guitar, to watch the sun go down in the evenings. "
That was when the idea started to open up our own glamping site in Kent, providing the things we were looking for at a fair price and close enough to town to avoid hours stuck in traffic jams.
Surrounded by rolling hills, quaint villages and woodlands of Kent, Gooseberry Field Campsite is the perfect spot for a weekend or mid-week break, only 39 minutes by train from St Pancras or an one hour drive from central London. Located in between Ashford, Canterbury and Maidstone our glamping site is within short distance of numerous tourist attractions and around the corner from our doorstep there are many footpaths, making Gooseberry Field an ideal hub for walkers and hikers.
The campsite is a five acre smallholding with 6 luxury glamping bell tents on the edge of the haunted village of Pluckley which used to be an ancient Kent apple orchard. Most of the original apple trees are gone but we have begun the process of replanting and reorganising the land, with fruit trees, fruit bushes, wild flower meadows, a vegetable garden, chickens and pigs. Next year we hope to add a few sheep to help keep the mowing down.
Whether you would like to spend your glamping break in a luxury furnished 5 meter Bell Tent, bring your own retro campervan or pitch up your own belltent, we have something to offer to all tastes and budgets.
To take the hard work out of camping, here at Gooseberry Glamping we believe we have thought about everything for you, including board games, a coolbox and plenty of seasoned wooded logs for your open fire.
So get away from it all, unwind, unplug, reconnect with family or friends and yourself and come and join us for a glamping holiday at Gooseberry Field Campsite.
