Broome Park Owners Club
Reviews of Broome Park Owners Club
We find this a very pleasant place to stay.Access by stairs may be difficult for some.Resort staff are very friendly & helpful.The facilities provided are shared by 2 other resort operators on site. Handy to Folkstone & Dover for Ferry access to France & Ashford a short drive for the Eurostar. Canterbury is a 15 minute drive & well worth a visit. We find it very relaxing,set in huge grounds with golf course & farm views. About 90 minutes drive from Heathrow. Note only one restaurant & bar operate.
The Broome Park estate has three separate timeshare resorts. They are the Broome Park Owners Club (the only RCI affiliated one - silver crown) which has studios and apartments within the main building. The club originally leased them for 35 years (ending 2015) from the owners, (now Sunterra) but run independently. Club Sunterra at Broome Park has two-bedroom wooden lodges in the grounds and runs the reception facilites in the main building. Finally, Regency Villas at Broome Park, consists of a number of relatively-modern, bungalow-type, 2-bedroom properties around a fountain (pictured on this page) in a walled garden within the estate. Sunterra and Regency Villas are both Interval International resorts.
All three share the tennis courts, games room and other facilities within the mansion house.
New leisure facilites, including an indoor swimming pool, are currently under construction, with an estimated completion date of Christmas/New Year 2007/8. In the meantime swimming pool/spa facilities are available free of charge at a hotel in Hythe (some 12 miles away).
If you're into golf, you'll not move out of the estate, as it has one of the finest courses in the South of England. If, like me, you can't stand it you'll definitely need a car, as the estate is in the middle of nowhere - some 12 miles from places such as Dover, Folkestone and a number of Kent coast favourites such as Margate, Ramsgate and Broadstairs. The nearest main town is Canterbury, not only notable for its cathederal but as an excellent shopping centre too. Day trips to London or Paris are quite possible for those based at Broome Park.
GREAT TIMESHARE FOR A NICE VACATION IN CANTERBURY AND LONDON.......
Former British war hero's grand estate now a hotel/golf club. Sadly not in good shape. Garden gone,pool closed, stables closed only one restaurant open, brickwork crumbling and covered in scaffolding. Takes their Golf Club very seriously. Not a child friendly type of place. Does a lot of local weddings
Well located if you want to go to Canterbury.
Not a suitable resort. Everything was dated. No social graces.
