Karen & Kevin visited 14th to 16th August 2020

Easy access into good flat field, plenty of open space to social distance, surrounded by beautiful countryside, very peaceful site. Basic CL site, with water and Elsan but no EHU, owner very friendly & helpful. Enjoyed our motorhome stay and meeting up with our friends, will be visiting again soon.

Interesting

Visited August 2020. Will need to choose your pitch with caution, avoiding the dried up cow pats and mole hills. Grass was quite long disguising holes. Field is very uneven. No CL sign on main road indicating site. Farm signage is at ground level so easy to miss. It is a quiet site, good views. We chose site as location near to meet up with friends. Will need aqua roll or alternative to access water tap which is located in stable, small signage to where this is. Water tap not accessible for motorhome to park next to it. Had to disconnect power washer which was being used to clean yard to obtain water. Eventually found hand sanitiser and gloves buried under debris. Chemical disposal point is situated in rough paddock adjacent to camping site, this was difficult to locate, owner had to show us. Difficult to access due to weeds growing around fencing, hole is surrounded by rusty oil drum, have to lean over breeze blocks to dispose, not very safe. On day of departure asked where we could dispose of rubbish, to be told as you are going home could you please take it with you. Apparently there is only one bin which belongs to the farm house, owner prefers you not to use it as only emptied every 2 weeks. On arrival we had to phone owner as were not quite sure which field was the camping site. We were the only people on site for the two days of our stay. Will not be visiting this site again.

Visited in July 2017 - not at all the standard expected

Grass knee-high - owner said they never mow, but rely on putting cattle on field to crop grass. Remains of what was once an outside toilet full of empty beer bottles and old carpet. Lack of signs to explain how or where to check in. Only found out where to pitch (in knee-high grass with a motorhome) via another camper. Really nowhere near the standard of site we expect from the club.

Lovely country location, but basic facilites.

The site is a small field with good views over the surrounding countryside. It is partly sloping, but with many flat areas. The grass is long and it’s a bit uneven underfoot. You can camp anywhere in the field, no set places as no hook-ups. There is good access to the Sussex Border Path, and we used part of it to walk round the Weir Wood Reservoir nearby, which was 9 miles including a deviation to Standen NT house. There is also easy access to the Worth Way Cycle Path which follows the disused railway track. We took about 1 hour to ride to Groombridge, and enjoyed a visit to the Station there which is on the Spa Valley Railway, which runs some steam trains. The station is run by volunteers and has an outdoor cafe area and some train memorabilia. The site is very basic, only having one water tap in the farm buildings, and a chemical toilet service point. No generators are allowed. The site is poorly signed, with nothing at the bottom of the drive to show there's a campsite. Also no sign to reception, but the farmhouse is quite easy to find behind the old farm buildings on the left. However, the site is not hard to locate as its on the edge of Forest Row, with the farm name on a brown board. It also has a footpath all the way into the village. We enjoyed our visit and would go again. Best points: -lovely rural location with views -very quiet and peaceful, only a few vans there even on a bank holiday weekend. -good access to walks/rides and short walk into village -good tv and phone reception (though beware overusing tv and flattening battery like we did) -eggs from the owner, we got duck and bantam eggs
