View Full Version : At the beach

02-09-2005, 18:52
Just past Whitstable at Tankerton there is a beach with all the beach huts on. The road that is just behind the beach huts is usually empty after 9 p.m. when the beach hut owners go home and there are usually a couple of campervans parked overnight. Mostly during the day there is parking if not too many beach hut owners are there. Wonderful to open the door of the van in the morning and see the sea.

have wild camped on the tankerton slopes for years now never had any problems, but after the bank holiday weekend can forsee locals becoming anti motorhomes, there were so many there, I was informed by a local that we have come to know quite well over the years that people in the houses overlooking the sea were anoyed that so many of the vans were not moving off during the day making it difficult for the beach hut owners and dog walkers to do there thing, please if you are going to use this spot consider the locals or we will lose yet another spot to the dreaded no overnighting signs

Yes, I agree totally. We had a cuppa and sat around chatting to people and left as the beach hut owners were arriving. We were moving on to go elsewhere for the day. I did speak to one lady resident of the houses opposite and she said that her neighbours were a bit miffed that she had her own campervan in her drive!!!
I'm sure that if everyone was considerate then we would co-exist quite happily.

Been there loads in my old VW, never had a problem ... many of the locals even nod to say hello.

Great spot.

Stayed there last night, along with a handul of other motorhomes. Very quiet - just a few dog walkers doing the usual door slamming in the morning.
