This site is in an ideal location for visiting Hastings and Rye, but it is very hilly! The caravans are nicely spaced and set in woodland grounds. On arrival, we found the reception staff friendly and cheerful, and we were given a map of how to get to our van. Its a bit confusing due to all the one way streets, but we had little difficulty in locating it. New additions for this year include a swimming pool, which is adults only from 9 am to 10 am, then general use until it closes at around 5 pm. The clubhouse is also new, and can only be described as cosy. Main meals can work out expensive, but there is also a 'nibbles' menu, which costs a lot less. The entertainment was quite good, although the 'comedian' on Saturday night was probably better suited to an adults only site, rather than a family site (he resorted to sexual and crudeness), not good if you have children. The singer on Sunday, Jamee, was hilarious without being crude. More of him please! Caravan is well equipped for 6 people, with a double, twin, and the pull out bed in the lounge. We also had a toaster in the van, which was a pleasant surprise.
Hastings is a 5 min drive away, as is the historic town of Battle. There was lots of may-day activities on in Hastings, including Morris dancers. There is also a light railway, cliff lifts and a couple of free museums.
For a weekend we found this caravan site to be good value for what it cost, and imagine it would also be good for a longer stay.
