A quiet and pleasant site

We found this to be a great site from which to discover local walks around 5 miles in duration, and also from which to visit National Trust and English Heritage sites in the vicinity. Our week just flew by. Lydia was extremely helpful and welcoming, being available if we needed. Her instructions for access and where to pitch were easy to follow. Pitches are well spaced with Bewl Water just visible in the distance. The site slopes a little and levelling blocks are likely to be required - we certainly needed ours. Water, bins and chemical disposal are well organised and easy to access and use. Apart from the occasional farm vehicle there was no sign of the hustle and bustle of the 21st century, just the peace of the countryside. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

A very enjoyable week but CL details not quite correct

The CL has easy access and stunning views over Bewl Water. However, the CL description is a little bit misleading. The whole site has a gentle but noticeable slope in two directions meaning that blocks or ramps are pretty much essential. There is no mention of this in the CL details. The grass had been cut in a rather haphazard way with some parts of the site cut to about 4" whilst other parts, including our pitch, was about 10" high. OK in dry weather but had it been wet it wouldn't have been good. I appreciate it was a very busy period with haymaking for the working farm but cutting the grass on the pitches rather than between them would have been more beneficial. There is a mention of WiFi being available but I didn't find any evidence of this. The CL is very peaceful with only the occasional tractor noise and the odd car going to the farm during the day and almost total silence at night. One other, almost welcome, noise was a Spitfire flying over almost every day from, I believe, a local airfield. We enjoyed our week there and would certainly go again.

Pleasant and Relaxing CL

Very pleasant CL in pretty surroundings. Access to the site is good. The ground was firm and presented no problems for motorhomes. The pitches are well spaced and all look out onto Bewl Water and the surrounding countryside. Site facilities are good, with the chemical waste point being at the opposite end of the field to drinking water, minimising cross contamination risk.The site owner is friendly and helpful and unobtrusive. A few hundred metres from the CL is the well signed walk around Bewl water. This is a lovely walk that we did from the site one of the days, and there are many other options for walks from the site if feeling less energetic. The site is very convenient for visiting Pashley Manor, we visited for the Tulip Festival, but the gardens are well worth a visit at other times. We will visit again next time we are in this part of the country.

Welcoming, peaceful and scenic

What a fabulous view to wake up to, across the rolling fields with tiny lambs skipping and jumping, down to Bewl Water. Lydia is friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. The working farm is tidy and clean. It’s quiet and peaceful - the word “idyllic” readily comes to mind. This is exactly what I think of when I picture a CL.

Stunning views, peaceful.

Stunning viewa towards Bewl Water and the surrounding country site. Very peaceful and a friendly owner. Super spot for walkers, mountain bikers and road bike lovers like us will find lots of exciting rides to choose from. Expect some steep hills! The local village Wadhurst has some excellent shops and on a Saturday there is a fresh fruit and veg stall on the pub front terrace. Stayed here for a week and will definitly come back. Many thanks for a great stay.
