Kits Coty Glamping
“Cool, quirky glamping on the North Downs” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's view
Established in a lush paddock opposite the owners' house, Kits Coty Glamping is located in glorious North Downs countryside between Maidstone and Chatham, with far-reaching views across the Medway Valley. The well landscaped paddock is home to a shepherd’s hut (traditionally decorated and with a double bed and log-burning stove), three spacious bell tents and 'Gretel', a woodland-themed cabin. Careful thought has been given to the space between the units and the attention to detail is excellent, as is the customer care from hands-on owners Ami and Mark, who are passionate about their unique glamping patch. The bell tents have quality mattresses, chest of drawers, electric lighting and stove, Egyptian cotton sheets, cosy duvets, throws and blankets – these are very colourful in the spacious and fun Festival and Marrakesh tents; the Marmadou tent just sleeps two. Each unit has a decked area outside, with chairs, a picnic bench and rustic log seats around a brazier. The facility cabin houses a well-equipped washing-up area that also contains every conceivable cooking utensil plus a fridge and freezer, kettle, microwave and toaster. There are also two spacious, fully serviced wet rooms and two extra toilet and washbasin cubicles. There’s a great outdoor space for ball games in a separate paddock, which also contains the communal eating area, chill-out room and a large fire pit.

About the area
The White Cliffs of Dover are an English icon – the epitome of our island heritage and sense of nationhood. They also mark the point where the Kent Downs AONB, that great arc of chalk downland stretching from the Surrey Hills and sometimes known as ‘the Garden of England’, finally reaches the sea. This is a well-ordered and settled landscape, where chalk and greensand escarpments look down into the wooded Weald to the south.
Many historic parklands, including Knole Park and Sir Winston Churchill’s red-brick former home at Chartwell, are also worth visiting. Attractive settlements such as Charing, site of Archbishop Cranmer’s Tudor palace, and Chilham, with its magnificent half-timbered buildings and 17th-century castle built on a Norman site, can be found on the Pilgrim’s Way, the traditional route for Canterbury-bound pilgrims in the Middle Ages.
In the nature reserves, such as the traditionally coppiced woodlands of Denge Wood and Earley Wood, and the ancient fine chalk woodland of Yockletts Bank high on the North Downs near Ashford, it is still possible to experience the atmosphere of wilderness that must have been felt by the earliest travellers along this ancient ridgeway.
