A CAMPSITE in the UK has won praise for its stunning private beach and family-friendly activities – and it's easy to get to as well.
Elmley Nature Reserve is just an hour from London, found in North Kent on the Isle of Sheppey.
The reserve is part of a family farm, owned by Philip and Corrine Merricks for over 40 years ago.
Their kids, Gareth and Georgina, have since taken on the attraction with their latest conservation drive being hand-rearing curlew chicks, which could soon be extinct.
And there is lots to do at Elmley Nature Reserve which families will love.
There are 3,300 acres of wildlife to explore, with tours including birdwatching, bug-hunting and even Land Rover 4×4 safari tours

They even have a private beach called Cockleshell Beach, which is open for swimming in the summer.
In the other months, it is used for migratory birds with a viewing screen for guests to watch from.
If you fancy staying, there are lots of choices on the farm including a large campsite.
Onsite are four shepherd huts – Little Owl and Samphire sleeping two while The Saltbox, The Damson and The Ferryman sleep four.
