NICE VIEWS

Hilders Farm Cottage
this site location is quite good and the views are nice. the field is on a fairly busy road so is noisy the site is a field attached to someones house but we didn't see them during our stay. the field is very unlevelled and quite boggy all the electric points are at the top near the road so a long lead is required if you fancy the slightly flatter area there are no pitch markings so its a free for all but that worked out ok for us as there was only 4 vans on site. the whole grass area hadn't been cut for a while and was in need of strimming especially near the water pipes etc the whole field was a bit untidy but overall was ok great view over the reservoir though

Great site for a base to explore,lots of National Trust premises

Hilders Farm Cottage
This is a nice site in a central location for lots of National Trust sites such as Chartwell and Wakehurst Place, among many more. The site has a slope where the electrical hook ups are but if you have a long enough cable you can park on the level part. There is water and a waste water pit. It is close to the reservoir which is within walking distance but fenced in most places … It is generally quiet with local traffic on the road near by and geese flying overhead a lot. TV reception is good and internet is 1 bar on 4 G The owner, Emily,is friendly and welcoming. We would go back there as a base again.

Lovely

Hilders Farm Cottage
It's a small CL, there's water, electricity and chemical disposal point. Plenty of space for 5 caravans. Friendly welcome. All the pluses previously mentioned. If you want good internet - this isn't your place. There is 4G, just not all the time. The road really isn't a problem - though when approaching with your caravan it is rather narrow, and yes, cyclists are really noisy!! My dogs loved the place and so did I.

Lovely friendly Family run Site

Hilders Farm Cottage
We enjoy a yearly trip to this site, yes there's a slope, but the owners provide large blocks for leveling , if you park at the top of the slope you get a view over the reservoir, the lower area is flat. The owner is friendly and helpfull. We can highly recommend this site for touring the local area

Pleasant site

Hilders Farm Cottage
When approaching from the north you leave the B2042 at Cooper's Corner, heading south down a slight hill through trees. The site is on the left between the road and the Bough Beech reservoir. The site slopes down from the road to a flat area at the bottom with room for four caravans. If you are the fifth van there is a flattish area near the site entrance. Although this gives you a lovely view over the surrounding fields, with the reservoir in the distance, it puts you only 15ft from the road. Traffic along it is not really busy, but fast and somewhat noisy although this is not a problem at night. A good site for visiting National Trust properties including Chartwell, Emmetts Garden and Knole, all worth visiting.
