 Nice site near to Crowborough town centre which is a ten minute walk up the hill, the town has the usual outlets and supermarkets.

Our grass pitch had some nice views, bring blocks as the pitches are sloping even the hard standing.

The toilets were always clean and we had a friendly welcome on arrival. The water tap was a good distance away from our pitch but this didn't bother us to much.

The site was quiet at night but as we had a larger group of children in the next area it did get a little noisy at times during the day.

This site is on the flight path too, we think Gatwick airport and the planes go over every five minutes or so in the day, we didn't find this a problem as we liked looking at all the different types as they went over.

There is lots to do in the area and the coast is only a short drive. We spent a lovey day at Lewes.

A miniature railway is just on your right as you turn off the main road, this runs on Saturdays from 14. 00 well worth a ride.

 I wondered whether this site would be noisy due to the proximity to a large sports centre and field but I needn't have worried at all as it was a very quiet and peaceful site. We have dogs and the dogs were allowed on the extensive playing fields and what views from there. Living in the Welsh Borders I was actually surprised to find such beautiful scenery.

Crowborough was just about within walking distance depending on how active you are. However it isn't motorhome friendly. There are barriers in car parks and notices not allowing motorhome parking. We asked at the campsite if there was anywhere we could park the motorhome for proper shopping and they didn't think there was. However on walking to Morrisons on the Monday of our holidays we noticed that the barriers seem to have been moved and we could have indeed parked our 10 ft high motorhome in the car park and this was confirmed by the staff.

Also a tip if going in a tall motorhome to the Bluebell Railway which is nearby - go to Horsted Keynes via A275, large open field type car park - no barriers at all and a most lovely spot to have a picnic and if you have dogs they can be walked there too. Roads off A road are an interesting drive!

As for the site, handy location to see lots of places, pleasant environment and up to the expected standards of camping and caravan club sites.

 I am a seasoned traveller and have stayed on many sites throughout Europe and the world for that matter, and can only give this site praise. The site is clean, well kept and quiet.

I am on a hard standing seasonal pitch with electricity, and for a UK site the pitch sizes are generous. The site is well located to local services and also lives up to the club Moto of being 'The Friendly Club', as both couples that work there are incredibly helpful and friendly, nothing seems to be an effort for them.

I would not, and have not hesitated to recommend this club site to friends and family alike and would without a doubt return.

 Very nice 4 day break in a tent with the kids & wee dog. Lovely leafy site, not packed too tight. Very pleasant managers seemed laid back and wanted to help us enjoy our stay. They didn't mind us camping out of two tiny cars, unlike many sites (107 + Agila hardly equal one 4x4!).

The kids enjoyed the bingo session put on by the managers, cycling around the site, the swimming pool right next door, the little steam train round the pond next door (open Saturdays only), jigsaws and a selection of games in the rec room, and the kids & dog loved the park past the leisure centre nearby with super views.

Our pitch was a little the worse for wear and started to get slightly worryingly muddy after all night rain, which fortunately went away for the remainder of the stay and dried up nicely.

The two toilet blocks were nicely kept and checked multiple times a day. For me, I would have dearly liked private washbasin cubicles as I was sporting a bandaged leg which prevented me using the shower - apparently one of the ladies' had them, but not the gents'.

That aside, a lovely campsite and a great holiday, thanks.

 The site adjoins, and is accessed via, the Leisure centre. The layout includes a mix of pitch types and sizes spread over three or more levels. Families need to be aware of deep water adjoining the lower site boundary.

Facilities very clean although the water pressure seemed low in the showers (temperature adjustable with the head on a hose, hooray!). There are two toilet blocks, the mens in each has two toilets and two showers.

This may not be enough when the site is full There is a recreation room available with a good wifi signal - the signal varies across the site. Crowbourough town had little to detain me but Tunbridge Wells is well worth a visit.

Make sure you go to the 'Pantiles' arcade.

 Site is on three levels, middle and lower mainly hard standings with some grass, the upper level is grass with very few electric pitches. The two wash blocks are well looked after, the only problem here being that the water pressure is rather low. Site has a recreation room, where they held a bingo on Easter Sunday evening. Holiday Site Managers also laid on an “Egg Hunt” for the kids. As well as Winnie The Pooh country, site is handy for Spa Valley and Bluebell railways.

Site team were very friendly. They recommended 'Jade Garden' for Chinese meal, which is in easy walking distance. Unfortunately it was closed the night we wanted a meal, so we settled for the 'Wok Inn' in the town which we enjoyed.

 Just returned from a two night stay. We asked for a non electric pitch and were offered two locations - a row of pitches at the top of a slight slope just inside and to the left of the site entrance and a field at the back of the site which had great views but sloped more. We chose the former.

The facilities on site are what you would expect of a C&CC site - not the newest or poshest but fine for our needs.

Can recommend the White Hart and Blue Anchor pubs, which are within walking distance(just!) of the site, for a drink. Can't say about food as we catered for ourselves.

Visited Pevensey Bay, Beachy Head and Brighton on our only full day.

Would recommend to others who want a quieter site.

 Stayed at this site with 4 other families. We all stayed in tents and were allocated a perfect area that accommodated us all comfortably. The pitch sizes were generous and the children had plenty if space to run around.

The management were extremely helpful and there is a great recreation room that we used on the second night - evening bingo in the room was a bonus! and we all thoroughly enjoyed our first official bingo games - we could take alcohol into the room which added to the enjoyment.

Handy little shop on site to buy milk etc

The site was quiet - ie no road noise etc. The site had a great atmosphere and we will no doubt visit again.

 I've just returned from Crowborough C&CC Site and I'm not sure if I like it or not. I arrived on Saturday lunch time to be told that a local electricity sub station had exploded the night before and that they weren't sure when power would be restored. Fair enough but a courtesy call that morning would've been nice to give me the option of going somewhere else.

Understandably the Wardens were a bit stressed but we didn't really receive the welcome that we've come to expect from the club.

We were shown to our pitch and given quite a comprehensive run down of the facilities. There are 5 toilet cubicles and 4 showers across two blocks for the gents and I believe the ladies was the same. This I feel will not be enough to service the site when it is full.

The old shower block is old, incredibly dated and smell of damp. The new shower block has got a new feel about it but feels equally as dated and tired as the old block.

While I don't expect pristine marble surrounding the CDP, it would be nice to have a little bit of privacy while seeing to my business.

The on site shop doesn't stock bread which caught us out. The site is close to a leisure centre in which you can swim but we found that boy racers gather in the car park.

There is a sign that says Crowborough council camping and caravan site on the entrance to the site and it very much feels like neither the Council nor the C&CC want to spend money on this site, and it shows.

If you are approaching this site via Tunbridge Wells, allow a minimum of 20 minutes to get through it. The traffic is horrendous.

I will not be returning.

 Wanted a few days away somewhere close to home as had just replaced our car and was not sure how the new one would two - delighted to report that both the campsite and the new car were better than expected!

The staff on site were exceptionally friendly! We arrived and were allocated our pitch, but it became apparent that our twin axle beasty was going to be too long to go on the original pitch so we were moved instantly with no hassle whatsoever.

They put on Bingo in the evening of Halloween, and all the kids dressed up, followed by a game of Play your Cards Right! Welcome drinks provided and then 'Bring your own' meaning a really fun cheap night!

Visited surrounding area - Hastings, rode the Cuckoo trail etc - weather a bit disappointing but that's what you get when you go camping in October in England!

All round, a gem of a campsite, and we will be returning in 2013.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, the new car is a Kia Sedona TS(2007), and it has turned out to be the best touring car we have owned, even better than the Discovery we had before!
