 Despite a clearly rainy lead-up to our stay and forewarning from Phil (the Site's Owner - and probably the most laid back guy you could meet!) that the grounds were pretty soggy, we were offered the opportunity to pull up on the hardstanding car park if necessary!

Myself and my family received a warm welcome on our first outing in our new campervan! We managed to get pitched up to the side of the main path and were honored to be the first to use the newly installed electric hook ups!

Nice local walks and a gentle 15 minute walk to the nearest shop; a fab pub doing yummy grub within a very short walk from the site, at reasonable prices, with a friendly welcome!

We will most certainly be returning to Dogwood Cottage to appreciate it's glory in finer weather!

And thank you for making us feel very welcome!

Reviewer: Minibird 1 review from this member

 Nice campsite and pleasant owners but the owners should give serious consideration as to whether a single shared shower/toilet is really sufficient for 10 tent pitches (ie one bathroom shared between up to 40 people).

There was always a queue for the loo, which is separate from the camping field by a short lane, and at least one person hopping on one leg outside if you took a shower.

We found this awkward with our young kids and will not return.

Facilities were clean and well kept however

 We were delighted to find this site is open all year. Our weekend stay was easily booked direct by phone - no pre-payment or deposit was required (may be different in high season). When we pulled in the owners immediately appeared and showed us our pitching options (plenty as there was only us and one caravan). The owners took over last Sept and have already added a shower (untried by us), toilet was super clean and owners very helpful. We ate at The Red Lion (5-10 minutes walk), excellent food and dog friendly, also visited The Rainbow Trout which has just reopened but ws not doing food until following week. All in all a great weekend, very quiet, good walks and great pub. It rained heavily on Sat which caused us some issues getting off site but again help was on hand and action is planned to prevent this happening again. We'll be back.

 A great little site nestled quietly behind Dogwood Cottage. The facilities are very basic, just one toilet and one wash hand basin, and no EHU, but this caused us no problem at all.

A nice level site, fenced all around, giving the children a safe place to play.

The bus stop is at the top of the drive from which one can get a bus to Hastings or Rye. There's a couple of pubs within walking/cycling distance.

We had a lovely couple of nights there, it's great value for money, and we hope to return very soon.

 Had a 1 nighter with our tent to explore the area on the spur of the moment. Setting was beautiful and sheltered. Surrounded by trees and hedges. The site owner made us very welcome and even brought us out a kettle of boiling water to make a coffee in the morning as our gas cannister had run out. You turn off the road down a tarmac drive, through a 5 bar gate and down a grassy track to the smallish field. Couldn't hear much traffic from the road - just the birds singing as the sun came up. Fantastic base to explore the area as was only 7 miles from Rye and 15 from Camber Sands. There was 1 toilet with a wash basin which was fine for our 1 night. There was a sports centre in Rye that could be used to shower etc. If planning to spend a few days. Brilliant site with nothing negative to say at all.

 What a lovely find this site was. It was a last minute booking and on arrival we was able to pitch wherever we wanted as the site was practically empty this time of year. The site is a fair size and if you pitch around the edge of the site you will have all the privacy you need!

Apart from when paying we were left in peace. Please be aware this is a very basic site so maybe only good for 2 nights as no showers or hot water but toilets facilities are proper toilets (no portaloos) and were very clean. Perhaps the toilets could have been better signposted as I didn't see any signs. The house does have basic supplies for sale.

There is a local shop about 10 mins walk away (turn right outside the gate) and is only about a 15 minute drive away from Rye which is a always lovely.

The site is only 7 per night which is fantastic value. It's very quite at night and is safe. I would recommend this site and will definitely go back
