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.

This review is for Crowborough

stayed on pitch 2, pitch was ok, but no night lighting in that area, having to pay extra for wifi seems to be a money making scheme that is most unwelcome to me, wifi should be included in pitch price, which was expensive enough anyway. I have been a club member for over twenty years, have been on many sites, which is why I think wifi should be free. The nightly pitch price on most club sites is to much, these sites are supposed to be for members, many site (none club) are far better value, which seems wrong to me and probably a lot of other members also.

Could do with more showers (only 2 in ladies). Leisure centre next door so handy for a swim.

Could do with more showers (only 2 in ladies). Leisure centre next door so handy for a swim. Uphill walk into town, with a good selection of pubs/restaurants and takeaways. This area is absolutely useless for a phone signal and as a county reception was poor all over.

This review is for Crowborough

The Management team did their best to stop chinese lanterns being released from the adjacent leisure centre, this being a major fire hazard to the camp site. We managed to stop one lantern landing on our awning roof, we kept it as a souvenir, and had we not been on site and aware of what was happening this would have been a serious fire risk. I dread to think of what might have happened had one landed on a nylon tent with young children inside. The vast majority of the site was on fire watch as some thirty lanterns were released. Secondly, there were a large proportion of vehicles which totally ignored the 5mph speed limit. We were amazed at the disregard for the young children, both on foot and on bikes, quite legitimately making their way around the site. We were made aware that there was to be a firework display at the leisure centre, and as this will also be a major fire risk, I would like to see the club raise these with the owners of the the leisure centre or local council. Perhaps the club should consider re-installing speed humps, as we know that speeding is a problem we have encountered on other sites, before there is a tragedy.

This review is for Crowborough

Having stayed on the site earlier in August in our caravan, we needed somewhere to stop for one night at the end or August so decided to stop there again but this time in a small tent. The staff were very helpful finding us a pitch at short notice as the site was busy. Everything there as good as before apart from one of the campers playing a radio little bit too loud and too late, gone ten o'clock.
