Lovely spot

Enormous field with water and CDP. 15 minute walk into Rye and about a 35 minute cycle to Camber Sands. Very relaxed owners that made us feel welcome. Best value yet on a CL with fabulous mobile signal if you need to stay in touch.

Lovely spot.

We were looking for a last minute weekend getaway in the area, and this place was perfect. We called late Friday on the way down, and both the lady we spoke to and the chap who came the next morning to collect the fee were lovely. It's a 20 mins walk into Rye either by the road or much better by the very easy footpath through the fields and down by the river. The facilities are only what's promised from a CL site, but what more do you expect for £6 per night. The views are spectacular to wake up to, and the local walks take you to some lovely pubs. it is a bit slopey if you're not up on the top, but you can find nearly level ground and the levellers take up the rest. A nice addition would be running water at the CDP, but it's no hardship to take a bottle of water with you. We would definitely be back here if visiting the area again, and as it's only 1.5hr from home I think we might well be doing just that.

Tranquil

We stayed here for two nights recently. The site is very basic and quite sloping, so need to take levellers, but this is stated on their website. Yes, previous reviews are correct, only a water tap at the entrance and a septic tank, with no rinsing facilities. Apart from that, the views are stunning, the quiet is amazing and the laid back attitude of the owners is very well appreciated. The location is perfect for walking into Rye and to drive into other towns. We didn't want to leave and we would definitely have stayed longer if we didn't have to get home. Certainly worth a visit :) PS - Also, bring your binoculars as the site is full of wildlife ........

Nice quiet site

Only stayed the one night here, but would have stayed longer if we had more time.  Good walking area - very easy to follow path to Rye and beyond.  The Ship Inn at Winchelsea Beach is well worth a visit - don't be put off by the area or roadside spot - the rear garden is a gem.   The 8ac CL field is a little deceiving as there aren't many areas that are anything like level.  The top edge - very level, has super views, but the bottom edge is more sheltered.  Sadly no tap for rinsing toilet cassettes.   We were there during hay making too, but a sensible area had been cut around the edge for access to the more level areas.   The mast isn't in the way of the lovely views, and we heard no noise from it - not an issue on this site.

Quite With Great Veiws

We stayed here for 15 nights in October and had a great time overall. The facilities are basic, just a tap near the entrance and a basic CCEP on the other side of the field but this is reflected in the price. The site is located on the highest ground for miles around and the views are outstanding, there is a clear view for several miles across the Weald to the north and over Rye Harbour nature reserve and the English Channel to the south. There is a Vodaphone transmitter mast sharing the hilltop but apart from a faint whirring of fans in the immediate vicinity of it's compound it did not cause us any problems. There are lots of footpaths in the immediate vicinity, including a well maintained and marked path into Rye, a walk of about a mile, otherwise there is a bus stop at the end of the lane with an hourly service in either direction. There are two pubs within half a mile, and plenty more in Rye, some dating from medieval times and associated with tales of smugglers. TV reception seemed fine, we were able to get several channels with a small aerial on the side of the van, but being on a hilltop that was perhaps to be expected. We found so much of interest in the area that we will more than likely return, and will not hesitate to stay again on this CL.
