Why stay here ...

Surrounded by the glorious East Sussex countryside, River Brede Farm is the idlilic getaway.

Situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty beside the River Brede, it has lots to offer. Wildlife and bird lovers will enjoy sightings of birds of prey, woodpeckers, wildfowl and much more. Within a 20 to 30 minute walk from the site there is Rye Harbour Nature Reserve with bird hides and beautiful walks. Camber Castle (English Heritage) is just a 10 to 15 minute walk across the fields from the site along footpaths/bridal paths.

From the site you can use the footpath to walk to the historic cinque port of Rye (approx 30mins) with its narrow streets, quirky shops and plenty of pubs and restaurants to enjoy. Turn left out from Castle Farm Lane, 0.8 mile you will find the village of Winchelsea Beach with a supermarket and post office, cash machine, fish and chip shop, kebab and pizza shop, pub and butchers with farm shop and cafe. As you leave Winchelsea Beach towards Hastings you will also find another cafe alongside the beach.

In Winchelsea itself there is a pub, The New Inn and a shop. Here you will also find the grave of Spike Milligan in the churchyard of St Thomas the Martyr. This is a beautiful church with stunning modern stained glass windows.

To the west Hastings, Bexhill and Eastbourne are a short drive away. To the East is Lydd, Camber and Dungeness. Camber has beautiful windswept beaches, whilst in contrast Dungeness has a rugged feel with its houses dotted around the coast. At Dungeness you will find the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway for a great day out. The 'Fish Shack' at Dungeness is a great place to delight in the local fish cuisine. The famous Norman Conquest of 1066 can be visited as Battle Abbey is not far away (31min drive).

Walkers and cyclist alike will love the array of footpaths and cycle routes from the site.

In Camber Kitesurfing/Windsurfing lessons are available and you can also hire electric bikes.

There is a bus stop on the main road which will take you into Rye and then from here Dover/Ashford. Then in the other direction towards Hastings, Bexhill, Eastbourne and onto Brighton. Winchelsea station is 1.8 miles from the site.

The camping field is a 2.5 acre, mostly flat site with access to fresh water and an Elsan emptying point. All pitches are either grass or hardstanding and are fully serviced with electric, fresh water and grey emptying.

Please note: We are an adult only site and next to a working farm.

If you are calling to make a booking, please do so between the hours of 9am and 5pm.

Fabulous four nights here

River Brede Farm
What a gem of a CL site this is . We spent four nights here in early June 24 and we will certainly be returning . Trish and Steve are wonderfully accommodating as hosts of the site and really couldn’t be more helpful. This site is kept immaculately. It is ideally placed for walking to Winchelsea , Rye Harbour , The nature reserve , Rye . Hastings and Battle are a short drive away.

A Lovely Stay

River Brede Farm
We agree with all the other reviews of this perfect site. Easy to find, warm welcome, water and hook up on every pitch. We stayed for 4 nights with a friendly group of caravanners and motor homers. Would certainly stay at River Brede Farm again.

Great CL

River Brede Farm

We stayed for 5 nights in March.  The hosts Tricia & Steve are really helpful and knowledgeable. As motorhomers themselves they know what people want. It’s a beautiful and peaceful site. Lots of useful info on the area with walking and driving times to the local attractions. Will definitely be going back.

Great Location

River Brede Farm
The pictures on the club site and the descriptions in the reviews are accurate and there has clearly been a lot of thought and resources invested into this site. It is a bit of a perk to have the additional facilities you would not usually find on a CL and everything works ( although wi-fi not reliable when we stayed). However what is most attractive (to us) about River Brede Farm is its location and the fact that its open in winter thanks to the excellent hardstanding and access. Booking via the form, email contact and paying by BACS all very easy. Thank you.
