My CL is in a lovely part of East Sussex with good views across the valley. There is 18 acres which include 10 acres of woodland, 2 lakes one approx. an acre well stocked with fish, a field with 2 ponies adjoining the caravan field. There are 3 level pitches on the grass with level slabs to park your caravan on the sloping field. Parking is on hard ground adjacent to the entrance. There are 2 hardstanding (no Pegs) pitches on a raised area overlooking the field. All have electric hook-up, recycle and compose bins on site.

The site drains well and we do not have flooding problems, if you car is unsuitable I will tow you off rather than make a mess. Motor homes can only go on hardstanding.

There are several villages in the area, Heathfield, Mayfield, Battle, Uckfield, Crowborough, Hailsham. Heathfield is approx 1.5 miles and has 2 supermarkets. There are more in the other villages.

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

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 children and pets are welcome.

Facilities : Suitable for Caravans and Motorhomes , Easy access, Electric hook up available, Scenic Views, Grass and Hardstanding pitches, Dogs welcome, Battery charging, Fishing nearby.

Open : All year

Rosewood Farm - peaceful site

This is our 4th stay at this site. Lovely and peaceful with views across to the lake and valley. Quite a few National Trust properties nearby and easy drive to Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne. We use it for visiting family but word of warning - roads to access the site are not easy with a caravan and neither is the access. The site itself is terraced and would not suit anyone with physical disabilities as the access road is very steep. However the pitches have paving stones that are level. It is a lovely part of East Sussex.


Early Spring Hidden Gem

We had a lovely overnighter in our camper van, having booked pretty much last minute as the weather looked promising. There was a friendly welcome from the Knight family and Gyp (the family's dog), with encouragement to walk around the lake, which had several seats, and the undulating woodland, and we took full advantage of both. (The huge carp in the lake were amazing, taking dog biscuits from our fingers!). The view from our elevated hardstanding pitch was fantastic. We saw a buzzard and heard owls. We look forward to a return visit, perhaps when the bluebells are out. Heathfield is a short drive away and must be one of the few places where there are several council run car parks which are free! Its a nice place to wander through, with a variety of independent shops, cafes and supermarkets.


Access to pitch

Very steep downhill to pitch. Not suitable for physically disabled as you have to leave your car on car park at top of hill. Didn't like having to take non recycled rubbish home after one week. Would suggest only suitable for 4 wheel drive vehicle as vacating could be a problem. Beautiful views and surroundings on quiet peaceful site. The woodland and lakeside walks were enjoyed by us and our little dog.



First Outing in Our Motorhome

We chose this site as it wasn't too far from our home and it was our first outing so wanted to make sure everything worked. The walks around the lakes and woods are beautiful even in the winter, our two pointers had a great time., we found it was very peaceful and we didn't hear noise from the traffic. The owners were unobtrusive and friendly. Yes there is a slope down to the hard standing but if two newbies can do it then it's no problem, we had no difficulty at all, the only problem I can see is if there is another motorhome next door only one has the view of the beautiful lake and you would be very close to the neighbouring motorhome but in my opinion still worth a visit.


A nice place to stay

Nice views of the surrounding woodland from the pitches. The owner was very pleasant and helpful in an unobtrusive manner. A good value CL with lots of nice places nearby.
