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.

Beautiful spot

Rosewood Farm
Wow what a little beauty!! Our 2nd trip away in our Motorhome and we were not disappointment!! The pitch for the Motorhome was perfect, right at the top looking down to the horses grazing and lake and woods in the distance. So peaceful and relaxing. The lake was lovely to sit and relax around and a lovely woodland to walk round. A really peaceful spot. The owners were lovely and welcoming. Glad we bought the car so we could take a drive out. Will definitely be returning and would definitely recommend. Thank you

A real hidden gem!

Rosewood Farm
We loved our trip to Rosewood Farm! Graham was very warm and welcoming and was on hand if we needed anything but otherwise left us to enjoy the lovely surroundings. We stayed on the campervan pitch which was in a great location at the top of site - from here we enjoyed the lovely view down to the adjacent lake and the woodland behind. The kids loved the chickens and horses and the lake was perfect for a little spot of paddle boarding. One of the other reviews mentioned they were disappointed by appearance of the entrance to the site but don't let that put you off in the slightest as once you're in the site the views are lovely and the whole place has a real charm to it - we love the fact that Rosewood Farm has an undeveloped, rustic feel to it and will definitely be back again soon :)

A Sussex gem!

Rosewood Farm
After 20 plus years of caravanning this has to be one of the best CLs we have visited. An absolute gem. There’s easy access to the site from the roads leading up to it and although the site is on a hill it is terraced to provide level pitches that are easy to manoeuvre into for any half competent caravaner. We have now had four visits to Rosewood Farm and each time we have been enthralled by the peace and beauty of the place. The site is beautifully kept and Graham the owner is always friendly and helpful. It is lovely to sit and watch the ponies in the field in front of the site or take a two minute stroll down to the beautiful lake or into the tranquil woods beyond. The carp in the lake are relaxing to watch and on our most recent visit we were blessed to see a Kestrel which came to perch on a fence post not far from our caravan. Each time we’ve stayed at Rosewood Farm we have had no desire to leave the site as it is such a wonderful place to be. If you are looking for a peaceful few days away this site is idyllic.

Made to feel completely welcome.

Rosewood Farm
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

Rosewood Farm
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
