Why stay here ...

My CL is in a lovely part of East Sussex with good views across the valley. The site is set within18 acres which include 10 acres of woodland, 2 lakes (120 yards from caravan field), one of which is approx. an acre which is well stocked with fish and there is a field with 3 ponies adjoining the caravan field.

The CL has 3 level pitches on the grass with level slabs to park your caravan on the sloping field. There is also 1 hardstanding (no Pegs) pitch on a raised area overlooking the field. All have electric hook-up, recycle and compost bins on site.

We work hard to keep the site in top condition and we like to keep the grass neat and tidy, to ensure this we will only place Motorhomes on hardstanding and we will need you to park your car on hard ground adjacent to the entrance. The site drains well and we do not have flooding problems but because of the slope on site and to protect the grass no front wheel drive motor homes are to go down the slope – most 2 wheel cars have no problems on site but if you encounter any problems please can we ask you to contact us and we will tow you off.

There are several villages in the area, Mayfield, Battle, Uckfield, Crowborough, Hailsham and Heathfield is only approx. 1.5 miles from site with 3 supermarkets – there are more in the other villages, along with many lovely local pubs and tea shops.

Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells, Hasting and Brighton are in easy driving distance.

Sussex is A good area for walking which includes the Cuckoo Walk, also a number of NT properties. The coast being 30 minutes away. Several children activities around.

Well behaved members, children and pets are welcome.

Made to feel completely welcome.

As some previous reviews have mentioned the site is on a slope but, with care and some level of driving ability, is easy enough to navigate. Graham is more than willing to help if required. The advantage of a sloping site is that the views are over the roof of the neighbouring pitches and not into their windows. Graham and his family made us feel unbelievably welcome from the moment we arrived and we felt like guests of the family throughout our stay. On the site, and only a couple of hundred steps from the CL field, is an amazing lake surrounded by stunning and peaceful woodland which we were privileged to be allowed to explore to our hearts content. Wonderful wildlife was everywhere. Geese and goslings, sheep and lambs, ponies and birds of so many varieties were right on our doorstep. If peace and tranquility are your desire then I cannot recommend Rosewood Farm highly enough.

Mid sze van and car. Facts

After paying the deposit I received a list of site requirements, one would be challenging if one intended an extended visit . Dog mess to be collected and taken home??? The other requirements created the perception one would need carpet slippers on the site, arriving at the entrance and van area I thought it needed tidying up. The club handbook lists woods and lakes and level pitches, the woods/lakes are good, and yes my pitch had level concrete pads for the van wheels, but the pitch was terraced was not level. After setting up there was clearance of about 4" under the tow hitch and about 18 " at the back of the van, the area for an awning sloped away from the van by about a foot. Guide ropes would have been on the slope to the lower pitch. After 20 + years caravanning I know when using an awnings isn't a good idea. Did not think the extra charge for awnings justified, left the next morning. Due to rain had to lock my 4x4 drive to get up the exit road. For first time ever glad to leave a CL. Dissapponting visit

Great site - worth a visit

Stayed on this site to get away for a few days after all the lockdown. Communication from Graham the owner was great from the initial enquiry and throughout. Clear instructions and easy to find. Once we had pitched Graham popped down to make sure we were all good and had found everything. A steep site but with level pitches and well set up. Fantastic view and a nice and peaceful site. Also a large forest area that you can wander freely in. The dogs loved it. Recommend this site if you are in this area

Relaxing time

First time here. Lovely view of the lake and woods. You can walk on Grahams land and can go further and walk into the village which takes roughly an hour. Geese on the lake which was nice to watch as they had babies. 3 ponys in the bottom field so plenty to watch. Heathfield only a short drive away car parking has no height restrictions which is a bonus. Would definately come again

Disappointing Pitch

Beautiful scenery and woodland walks. Friendly owner and lovely dog. Owls hooting at night, ponies in the field adjacent and lovely grass pitches which were closed as the ground was too soft but I can imagine are lovely in the dryer weather. Unfortunately we were disappointed with the ‘hard standing’ pitch as it was pure mud. We appreciate recent bad weather however hard standing is just that ‘hard standing’ not squelchy mud full of puddles that was impossible at times to walk on in certain places. To give you an idea of just how muddy it was our 4x4 truck was spinning in the mud which was supposed to be ‘hard standing’. You could see evidence of old stones so perhaps at some point it was gravel but it certainly wasn’t hard standing when we arrived. A very steep hill on the property to get to the pitches and very poor signage around the site. Lots of old laminated notices that were unreadable and the electrics tripped at least twice daily even though we were the only ones on site. On a positive note our two spaniels enjoyed the mud and we enjoyed listening out for the owl at night. We left a day early and unfortunately won’t be returning.

Comment from the Club:

Thank you for your review and we are so pleased you enjoyed the beautiful scenery and wildlife at this lovely CL Site. The CL owner has been in touch as he works hard to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable stay. He has advised that the mud which was a problem in the very wet winter has been removed from the tarmac.
