Reviewer: Fairfield campers 1 review from this member

 Very good site, the toilet block was small, but we never had to wait for the showers and they were always very clean.

Great site for young children, as it's very friendly and safe. Although no play area, my 2 are a bit older so had brought games etc

Will go back to this site again.

 This was our first visit to this site. As it is a caravan and camping club site we expected good faciltiies. This campsite had excellent facilities. It was very wet the weekend we were there and we had full use of the recreation room which was open all night, in case we floated away in our tent. The washing room was always immaculate My partner is disabled and the facilities for him were first class. Dry, warm and plenty of space to change. The wardens were very helpful and friendly.

Reviewer: Deeana 16 reviews from this member

 This is a very nicely kept site with good facilities and the location is good for Ashdown Forest and all local attractions including Tunbridge Wells. The site managers are very pleasant but one of the assistant managers is very abrupt and authoritarian about enforcing the strict letter of the law, which makes one nervous. We have curtailed our stay there because of his attitude.

Very muddy pitches, with no real drainage, which is a bit of a problem especially since Crowborough is famous for its rain.

 High standards of cleanliness and hot water at all times, very friendly wardens, pretty site, good size pitches, peaceful site. It does slope in places but no great problem, good dog walk, 2 separate shower blocks cleaned at different times. Crowborough town is a 2 minute drive, 10min walk. Very good Chinese and Indian takeaways in town, also a Morrison’s and Waitrose. Ideal touring base for visiting Brighton, Eastbourne, Hastings, Battle, etc.

 First time to this site on very good recommendations. Was not disappointed.

Very friendly wardens who certainly put them selves out to help (gave me an onion when I forgot to buy one for our spagbog).

The toilet block & showers (2 of) were very clean, hot water all the time and smelled very nice.

The site is very pretty on split levels, some grass pitches some hard standing. It does slope in places but only slightly. More noticeable if in a tent.

There is no playground for children but the grassy areas are great for cycling round, as our two did. You can play games but have to be respectful of others. There is how ever a leisure centre just out side the campsite with a swimming pool which does family fun time. Next to this is a large sports field which you can play in to your hearts content.

Crowborough is a 2 minuite drive, 10min walk with Morrisons & Waitrose. A very good fish & chip shop, Chinese, indian & pizza takeaway. We stayed on site most of the time but did go to Penshurst place which is about half hour drive and well worth a visit. The site do have a book and leaflet centre on surrounding attractions.

Definitely will go there again.

 Just got back from a great 2 days at Crowborough. The site was excellent and I fully agree with the reviews posted previously. The toilet blocks and showers were very clean and well kept. I had a shower first thing this morning and they were still immaculate - good going as the site was quite busy.

We took the kids (9 and 10) to the neighbouring swimming pool and got a reduction because we were using the campsite. A child's swim was only £1.75 and the kids must have been in the pool for 2 hours. It's not a big pool, but it was very quiet and the pool staff brought out lots of swimming toys for them. Shame the toilets weren't as clean as the campsite.

Had good fish and chips from the chip shop at the crossroads (traffic lights just up the hill. Morrisons and Lidl are just a bit further, but the Morrisons car park is accessed further up the hill towards the coast (signposted 'Superstore'). There's no access to the store from the Petrol Station - or the good's entrance!

Probably too close to home for us to keep the kids excited, but certainly well worth a visit. And perhaps for us without the kids :). It was great for us coz the kids are already looking through the Camping And Caravaning brochure looking for another site.

 This was our first visit to this site and it certainly won't be the last. The couple who run this site are so friendly and helpful. The ground was quite wet when we arrived and the grass pitch was sloping, but the man who ran the site came and helped us to level our caravan and even provided us with wood blocks to stop us sinking even more, and when it was time for us to leave he towed us off the pitch.

The toilet and shower facilities were spotlessly clean and lovely and warm. The television reception was very good here too.

The site was very quiet but near the town centre, there is a Morrisons and a Lidl nearby and plenty of pubs if you want to eat out.

We visited Wakehurst Place while we were here it was lovely there.

We had a lovely weekend - apart from the weather - and will definitely be back.

 This is the first time we have been to this site and was very impressed. The staff were friendly and helpful. The toilet and shower were lovely and clean. The site was children friendly. There is a leisure centre just up the road from the camp site which was good with a train ride across the road which the kids loved. There also a park behind the leisure centre which was brilliant for the kids 2 let of steam. A very enjoyable weekend will be going again and add bonus as the weather was so good.

 This was our first camping trip with our 16 month old daughter and we absolutely loved it!
The site's facilities were spotless and included a family room with baby bath and a kitchen with microwave.  We haven't yet invested in cooking gear so this was great for us.  The site was immaculate with really large pitches, we actually wanted to be a bit closer to our friends in the tent next door but there was lots of room for the kids to run around.
The site managers were very helpful and friendly, which was good as we hadn't camped for years and were a bit wet behind the ears!
The site was quiet at night, apart from our babies crying but we hope that it didn't disturb people too much!
There is a fab leisure centre next door to the entrance and we all went swimming to cool off from the heat.  Lots of walking to be done right from the site, but it was too hot.
Local shops included Waitrose and Morrisons.  We went for dinner in nearby Tonbridge Wells so can't comment on the local pubs.
Went to nearby Pevenesey Bay, would advise you to go early on as the tide comes in around 12 and leaves a very stony beach. 
All in all this was an amazing weekend and we can't wait to return to the site.  Although I guess we were spoilt with the fabulous weather.

 We stayed here over a Bank holiday weekend . Very nice clean and tidy site, as you expect from a Camping & Caravan Club site. Highly recommend levellers,in case you get a slopping pitches.
At the beginning  of the road to the site there's a public swimming pool, (about 5 minute stroll from site) with reduced prices for camper's. The pool has a floor that moves to alter the depth of pool. Ie: for the family fun time.
Worth a return visit . YES
