Delf Glamping is set on our family 6 acre small holding farm in the beautiful location of The Town of Sandwich Kent an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a Historic Town. We run an old unique Farm shop supplying Local and Home grown produce to local people and play a big part to the local community.
We have an onsite Caravan Motorhome Club CL Site, and decided to provide a Glamping Accommodation for the people looking to escape to the outdoors with something a little different to say in.
In medieval times and before, Sandwich was a main Kent and UK port, it was and still is, a principal Cinque Port. Before the River Stour silted up, the river was wide and deep enough for great sailing ships.
Today, the ships have been replaced by smaller craft, residential and visitors moorings, but the many ancient buildings make Sandwich one of the best preserved medieval towns in England.
The first recorded mention of Sandwich was around 664 AD but there was probably some kind of settlement in Roman times as the site is very close to Richborough Roman Fort (Rutupiae).
The name of the town is, most likely, Saxon in origin, approximately meaning sandy place, or the place on the sand. With its ancient buildings, nature reserves, golf courses, delightful country pubs, cafés and restaurants, the medieval Cinque Port of Sandwich is a must to visit for the discerning tourist. Sandwich is also surrounded by small picturesque villages, such as Eastry, Ash, Worth and Woodnesborough & within easy reach are the nearby towns of Canterbury and the Port of Dover.
At the top of our drive there is a bus stop that takes you to Deal, Dover, Canterbury or Ramsgate. There is also a train station within a 10 to 15 minute walk.
There are lots of footpath walks and cycle route paths so you can enjoy the local countryside. You can go to Sandwich Bay and walk or cycle the ancient highway to Deal.
If you are a keen golfer, Royal St George's is within 1.6 miles.
There are lots of attractions to visit - Wingham Wildlife, Howletts Zoo, Dover Castle, Walmer Castle and lots more in the area.
