Three nights stay

We were welcomed on arrival and taken to our pitch. As we have a motorhome, we were taken to a separate area from caravans as it was flatter. This meant that we did not have the same views over the orchard and we were close to a very busy road, which was quite noisy at times. The ground was not very well kept - I know you cannot help rabbits digging holes, but there was a distinct lack of grass in places and thistles growing. The shower block was very old and dated and the washing up sink just had cold water, which is questionable. We were disappointed that there was no longer a farm shop. This was one of the reasons we booked the site. The owner said it had been closed for a number of years, but it still shows on the description, a does the fact that it is a new site - it is definitely not a new site. In fact, we found it very worn and in need of some serious updating. The fishing pond is at the back of the orchard, down a very steep hill which is not easy to negotiate. The busy road makes walking anywhere from the site quite treacherous, however the bus does stop directly outside the site. A small information pack would be useful, like some sites give, with information about buses, places to see, nearest chemist etc. When questioned about bus times, the owner could give very little information. I'm afraid it is not a site we will be returning to.

Enjoyable relaxing few days

Stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed the experience. Only two slight drawbacks which I would like to bring to the attention of fellow members. 1 At certain times of the day the road noise became apparent to us but in the main it wasn’t a big deal. 2 We booked this sight having read the owners description of their facilities in particular the Farm Shop. Quite disappointed to find that the shop has been closed for TWO YEARS. Surely by now they should have updated their information. Otherwise it was a lovely place, really tranquil especially down at the bottom of the Orchard by the fishing pools. Very handy for local tourist attractions.

Another several excellant stays this year.

Well , once again several nice stays at Redcoat. so caravan put to bed until April next year. Unfortunatly we had to cancel our last booking in October due to me having a bad reaction to the flu jab , but be warned Redcoat, we will be back.Many thanks to our hosts for making us feel welcome on our visits this summer. So in a nutshell, if you have yet to visit this CL, suggest you do so in 2019.

Chill

Came here with friends who had been once before. We did need quite a lot of wood under the steadies, wheels and jockey wheel to get us level and I had fears of us rolling down the orchard which is very steep. However, the view is stunning, we drove down to the ponds and summer house which is a must and it's so quiet down there. The noisy ones were the geese and Mr Peacock came to visit us twice a day to eat cake crumbs. I didn't use the loo though my husband did and said they were clean but you need to take your own loo roll. I didn't use the shower either but again my husband did and he said it was ok. Lovely place to stay and near to Battle, Hastings etc. We can recommend this site but as we have seen the area we won't be back as we want to see more of the UK. The Squirrel Inn is a must to go and eat. Their 6 hour slow roast pork belly melts in the mouth.

Pity summer had to end

Well thats it for another few months, just returned from a great week at Redcoat . We try to visit every month for a week, after all these years it hasn't lost its appeal. We both love it, really glad we found this CL. If you havn't yet paid a visit give it a try .
