You've never seen a campsite like this before!

Imagine stepping back in time to a former World War II gun battery site, built in 1941 as a defence against a possible German invasion

Purchased by my father John Button in 2009, our family has spent the last 15 years restoring the site to its former glory. We've unearthed the gun battery and Nissan huts bases, gained access to the underground plotting room, dressing station, and ammunition bunker. The journey has been exhilarating, and we've created a museum that's open for visitors most weekends. Come and witness history come to life! Looking for a hidden gem on the south coast?

Look no further than Capel Battery! Perched on top of the iconic White Cliffs of Dover, this spot boasts stunning views and is conveniently located between vibrant Folkestone (just a 5-minute drive away) and historic Dover (only 15 minutes by car). Plus, explore the unique and secluded natural reserve of The Warren or take a stroll along the beautiful Kent Coastal Walkway and beach. And when you need a break, head to the newly renovated Folkestone Harbour with its pop-up cafes, bars, restaurants, and local artists' shops. Don't forget to add a visit to Dover Castle to your itinerary - it's just a short drive away!

This World War 2. Gun battery site of historic interest on top of the White Cliffs of Dover with specular views of Folkestone, France and the English Channel. Easy reach of Eurotunnel and the Port of Dover.

Excellent hospitality
Warm welcome upon arrival. We knew there was no facilities apart from water and electric hook up. The view of France and the proximity to the Battle of Britain Memorial was excellent. The pub is a five minute walk with good food. The site is full of WW2 history if not your average campsite. Motorhomes only at the moment with 5 pitches. It was perfect for that something different.
We will definitely go back.
