Wonderfull stay.

Just had a fantastic week at the old dairy cl in Rye. Great site, well looked after. Owners very friendly. The site is slopping but not an issue nothing that leveling ramps won't sort out. But if you pitch at the bottom as we did you do not need them. The site is only a mile out of Rye which is easily walkable and Rye is a lovely town to wonder round. Hastings is only about 10 miles away and worth a visit. Camber sands is only 4 miles away and is a sandy beach and dunes. There are a couple of pubs a few minutes walk from the site both a very good,the Playden oast house and the Kings head. The site is very easy to get to as just off main road. We will definitely be back again when in the area.

Lovely CL

We stayed here for one night in August 2020 using it as a base to explore Rye. Very nice site. Beautiful scenery and nice short grass. You will need ramps to level up a bit. The phone box mentioned in the directions has gone so look out for the postbox instead.

Two night stay

Second stay in quick succession, this time for the Rye jazz festival. Owners are very friendly and helpful. We had a bike issue the first time and they came to our rescue. Beautiful sunset across the meadow, tops of the stay. Highly recommend on all fronts.

Easter stay

Had a pleasant 6 night stay over Easter. The owner and his son were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Yes, the site is sloping but we had a reasonably flat pitch and the owners are creating new pitches on a flat area. A lovely pub across the road, dog friendly bar and restaurant with good food. Would stay again if in the area.

Four night stop over

This site was ideally suited as a location for our holiday in this area. Most unfortunately I would not visit this site again for the following reasons - Although accepting the site was advertised as being sloping it was very difficult for a suitable place to pitch even though we were the only caravan on site. The grass had only just been cut but needed to have been collected up, even with our porch awning we spent each day of our holiday sweeping out the van and awning. This, in our case was made worse as we had our two dogs with us. There is a commercial venture adjacent to the site that caused us no direct problems other than a radio had been left on 24/7. Finally, we have never paid this amount for a CL in our 35 years as a Club Member. It was £14 plus £1 for our porch awning per night, it was not worth it!
