Overview

Explore the villages, towns and coast of the south east from this campsite.

Our Crowborough Club campsite lies in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Ashdown Forest, the setting for A.A.Milnes wonderful Winnie the Pooh books is on the doorstep. 

London is around 35 miles to the north and the historic spa town of Tunbridge Wells seven miles north west. While the coastal towns of Eastbourne, Brighton and Hastings are around 20 miles away.

The campsite is well laid out. Trees and hedges divide the site giving a more secluded feel in some areas and some sheltered pitches for tent campers. A good range of on-site facilities are available including toilet and showers, a laundry, disabled facilities and a recreation room.

Woodland walks can be enjoyed direct from the campsite and the neighbouring park and leisure centre and swimming pool provide convenient entertainment for younger family members.

Crowborough town is a ten-minute walk from the campsite and offers shops and a good range of places to eat. Visit Tunbridge Wells for its elegant architecture and the Pantiles – a colonnaded walkway where you can browse, shop, eat and stroll.

For family days out visit Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest, Chiddingstone Caste, The Mill Toy and Pedal Car Museum and The Kent and East Sussex Railway. Biddenden is just one of many Vineyards in the area.

Worth Noting

Many pitches are sloping and chocks will be required. Recreation room with table tennis for hire.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

There are several vineyards in the area, including Bolney, Sedlescombe and Chapel Down. The Blue Anchor pub smokes its own fish. Farmers' markets are held in the town and Laurel Farm sells local produce.

Cold showers should due to inadequate services should not be acceptable.

This review is for Crowborough

Cold showers should due to inadequate services should not be acceptable. This is a lovely site in a lovely area which needs money spending to improve the overall experience. Many interesting places to visit and the town is within a short walk with good shops, leisure facilities and restaurants. We shall not however be visiting again until site facilities are improved.

Best bits: right next to the leisure centre, which includes a swimming pool and has discounted rates for those using the campsite. There is also a running track and plenty of space to kick a ball around. Site on the edge of town and easy to find. Worse bits: some of the pitches (the non-electric ones mainly, I think) are sloping and even with levelling blocks we did not end up level! The worktops around the inset basins in the toilet block get very wet with splashes of water. Some sites provide cloths to wipe up with, which would be a benefit here. All in all we enjoyed our stay. Staff were helpful and accommodating.

Stayed for a long weekend with 2 children (age 9 & 6).

This review is for Crowborough

Stayed for a long weekend with 2 children (age 9 & 6). We visited Hever Castle and Bateman's (National Trust) from here. Found a lovely country pub, 'The Huntsman' nearby (sadly no kids' menu but perfect for couples) and enjoyed fantastic fish and chips from J. Bennett's at Crowborough Cross (5 mins from site). Only downside for us was no play area, but the boys weren't bothered as there were skate ramps at the Leisure Centre nextdoor, where they spent many happy hours! They also played in the wooded area around the edge of the site and ping pong in the recreation room. Facilities were very clean, if a little dated. Would stay again if visiting the area but not for longer than a weekend with kids.
