Top 5 things to do near Kent Coast and on park

  • Share on Facebook

Kent Coast General Manager John Coltman talks us through the best things to do on- and off-site while you’re on holiday at the Haven park near Rochester, Kent. He’s worked in this role for several years and describes it as "the best job I’ve ever had,” all because he gets to help create memories for the holidaymakers choosing to stay here. 

There’s been a lot of exciting change happening on the park recently, with impressive investments and more to come. Here’s why you should visit, and return again, to Kent Coast.

1. Enjoy the peace of the Estuary

1. Enjoy the peace of the Estuary

Kent Coast is set alongside the Thames Estuary. From here, you can watch the ships sail by to and fro. We are also blessed with local wildlife such as seals. From the beach side, you can watch the seals bobbing their heads up and down.

It’s freedom by the coast here, as if you enter another world. As soon as you cross into the park, it feels different. You can embrace the serenity.

We are only 35 minutes from London via train or car. For those seeking your own adventure, there is a new walking route from here to London if you fancy giving it a go.

2. Relax in the new Marina Bar

The all-new Marina Bar and Stage at Kent Coast

We recently welcomed our brand new 1200-seater Marina Bar, which has an improved entertainment offering and its own kitchen serving a new menu of food.

It also has a decked terrace overlooking the Estuary, which will be great for those warmer nights and boat watchers. From the decking, you oversee the extravagant Adventure Village and outdoor stage. You can watch live entertainment under the sun or stars all year round.

3. Try out the new Adventure Village

The Adventure Village and its many activities has transformed the park into a place some people only dream about.

To all our dog owners out there, we are proud to be a dog-friendly park and we have built a special place just for our furry friends to enjoy, so be sure to pop down to The Bark Yard.

4. Visit the military fort (and play laser tag inside)

4. Visit the military fort (and play laser tag inside)

We have an 18th-century military fort on the park. That’s a real headline piece for those who come for the history and tourism. You can play laser tag inside – laser tag in an 18th-century fort! - you won’t find that anywhere else in the UK. 

For our History lovers, you can book a tour with the fort. Tours are available Wednesdays and Sundays, where you’ll understand the history of the wars with France.

5. Visit the local zoo

5. Visit the local zoo

The local zoo, The Fenn Bell Conservation Project, is less than 10 minutes away by car. It’s a petite zoo, with a low entry fee, but it gets a lot of attention in the local area. All of their animals have been either rescued or come from other zoos. They also host some seasonal events too. It’s well worth a visit while you are here.

What do you love about Kent Coast?

I love working on a holiday park. I think (as corny as it sounds) you get to help create the memories of those that come here for their short breaks. Every guest, every holiday spent here with us in Kent Coast, helps build this place into a magical place where memories last a lifetime.

Let2offset - make no site fee payments until 2031

Let2offset is a contractual lettings product that offers eligible owners a guaranteed letting income at a preferential rate (calculated each year) in exchange for a stipulated number of letting breaks. It also allows eligible owners to pay their site fees and receive their letting income in 12 equal monthly instalments; the monthly site fee amount charged by Haven will be after deduction of the letting income.

‘Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031’ is available at 33 Haven parks excluding Burnham, Cardigan View, Far Grange, Garreg Wen, Lydstep Beach, Riviere Sands and Seaview.  The letting income received will vary by make, model and location. The monthly site fee payment does not include running costs e.g. utilities, rates & insurance.

“Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” is applicable to new and existing customer purchases of new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed or equivalent or superior grade holiday home purchases made through Haven where customers have also signed up to Haven’s Let2offset contract. It is not applicable to private sales and cannot be used in conjunction with our free Site Fee promotion.  It is available across 40% of eligible Parks and applies when letting a new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home (or equivalent or superior grade for 15 weeks.

An example of how “Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” operates under Let2offset is the purchase of an Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home at Primrose Valley with a monthly site fee of £585.00 (includes purchasing discount of £45) and monthly letting income of £803.67. The monthly difference equates to £218.67, which will be credited to the owner's account. Both letting income and site fees are subject to yearly pricing reviews and the monthly site fee costs and letting income shown in the example are based on 2024 figures.

Modelled assumptions on expected annual site fee and letting income charges over the 7-year lettable life of the Atlas Sahara 3 Bed indicate that under Let2offset it is anticipated that these customers will continue to receive a monthly credit during this period, however, this is not guaranteed. The modelled assumptions are based on the historical performance of Haven over the past 5 years of trading.
