Exquisite little site

Stayed for 3 nights, warm, safe welcome from the warden. Small chilled site but lots to do in the area, walking, cycling, visiting Hastings, Rye. Good for dogs. Two Sawyer's Pub is lovely and covid safe for food and drink excellent. Absolutely loved it.

A haven of calm.

We have just spent seven nights at this beautiful site as part of our 3 1/2 week tour of South East England. It was our second visit, the previous one being several years ago and we were delighted to find that it had lost none of its charm. We were fortunate to get one of the pitches benefitting from the sun all day; some do not and some are in the shadow of the trees all day. We received a warm, though Corvid restricted, welcome from the wardens who were friendly and cheerful throughout our stay. We relied entirely on our own facilities so are unable to comment on the toilet/shower block but Corvid restrictions were in evidence both there and at the service points which we did use. One novel feature was that the wardens serviced these points using a hand cart rather than the normal tractor, further preserving the peace and quiet. As other have reported the location is ideal for many walking and visiting trips throughout the area and has the bonus of a short walk through the woods to the nearby ‘Two Sawyers’ pub in Pett village which is not to be missed! This site is a definite on our list to revisit when next we are in the area.

Our first outing as caravaners

What a lovely place. Staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. Gave us directions to the local drinking venue which was lovely, Two sawyers. Great food and a max 10 minute walk. Gave us advice on where to park in fairlight to walk into hastings. Toilet facilities were spotless, showers nice and hot. Covid procedure was spot on. Well done. Would most definitely recommend.

Lovely and peaceful with spacious pitches

Lovely and peaceful with spacious pitches, good pitch no. wrist band system for covid-19 precautions. Great, efficient and friendly staff. Pretty lit up at night, which is fine but maybe unnecessary. Very clean respected facilities. Basic shop onsite with essentials and gas, then fish mongers/butchers/green grocers in Pett. Lovely walks 2.5 miles across wood and fields to beach, 0.5 miles through woods to Two Sawyers pub; 7.5 mike Walker from Pett Level round military canal to Winchelsea and back along beach levees added to 2.5 mile each to Pett Level. Nice cafes at Pett and Winchelsea. More to sea. Great shingle beaches.

A real gem of a site

This is a small quiet site, but set in a picturesque location, just right for walking in the woods, or on nearby Winchelsea beach or in Hastings, this site is ideal for those looking for peace and quiet. The husband and wife wardens on site in 2020 were excellent, and could not do more to make all the holidaymakers feel safe and secure in these covid related times. They both made a real effort to ensure that those staying on site were well looked after. Could not ask for more!

Peaceful site in a great location

Great wardens run & maintain an attractive & peaceful site with many trees for welcome shade which we needed with daytime temps of 30+. The surrounding area is a lovely area with lots to do & explore. Not much on the site for kids. Great site for dogs as lots of walks close by. Good pub a few minutes walk through the woods, other places to go & see close by.

Wooded site

Stayed 8 nights, weather good and the shade of the trees didnt impact our stay.The centre pitches seem to catch more sun, if thats wanted. The lane down was being Tarmaced on the day we arrived but the site had warned us of this and in the end it caused no issue. As previously said great for dog walks. We visited Rye, Hastings, and Eastbourne and some of the beaches in the area. The wardens worked like Trojans and made a superb effort cleaning the opened Bathrooms etc which must have caused them a lot more hours of work each day. We decided to use our vans facilities which suited us. A good site to tour the South coast and well run.

Lovely Peaceful Club Site

We stayed her for 8 nights from 17th to 25th July We were greeted by very friendly wardens who were very helpful. All the Covid19 social distancing measures had been put in place and people on site seemed to adhere to these which was good The site is lovely surrounded by trees and woodland. A short 5 -10 minute walk through the woods brings you to the local pub which serves food There is also a butchers in the village which we heard was good, but apart from that there wasn't much else with regard to facilities nearby, you would need to use your car to get to a local shop/supermarket, although not too far away - probably 10 minutes in the car If you are looking to get away from it all then this site is for you There are a lot of walks around the site, great if you have a dog We hope to be back again !!

Getaway

After "lockdown", our first trip away. Well, what a super site. The wardens have been very busy and the site was immaculate. We were blessed with good weather, only rained one night. Lovely walks and great for doggies. We'll be back!

Glad to be back

We are so glad to be back out in our van and also that we chose Fairlight Wood for our first trip once the Covid restrictions were eased. We have to say a huge thank you to the wardens who have obviously worked really hard to get everything ready and to book people in day one. The site is well known for being quiet and peaceful and an ideal place for dogs and walkers alike. It didn’t disappoint. It was lovely to be greeted with cheerful warm smiles, and throughout our stay whenever we saw the wardens they went out of their way to say hi and check on how everyone was doing in this new environment despite the fact they clearly had a much bigger cleaning workload. A great deal of thought has clearly gone into making the site operate in a way that ensures our safety as well as possible which was really good to see. It was our new Labradors first outing in our van and he had a wonderful time as did our other two with lovely walks and woods to enjoy. However, what really made our visit this time was the welcome and hard work of the wardens. We were always planning to visit again as we love the area and the warmth and friendliness of the onsite team so we’d like to thank them for all their hard work.
