 Friendly and efficient communication. Excellent value for money.

Very quiet site with a lovely clean loo.

It was perfect for us as we were visiting friends in the area and wanted to camp up for the night.

 Beautiful view!

Slightly sloping, small site, clean showers and toilets. Very friendly and helpful owners.

The site is secluded so a car or bikes is advised.

 We have just returned from a lovely weekend in our motorhome at the Cairds site. Our friends also stayed in the 'arch' (well kitted out camping pod with toilet and shower, sleeping two adult and two children).

We received a very warm welcome from Naomi, Pete and Sue. Excellent campsite, immaculate, clean toilets and showers. Beautiful views. Very peaceful.

Took the kids to Bedgebury Pinetum and hired bikes for a couple of hours - there's also a Go Ape there. Recommend eating at the Goudhurst Inn a few miles away.

 We did two nights in the camping arch and one in a tent at this friendly quiet site. The owners are helpful and shower/loo facilities are good.

The arch was a pleasant little bolthole, ideal if the weather looks uncertain but we also had a lovely night in the tent listening to owls. Lots of wildlife and walks close to the site.

We had a tremendous lunch at The Bell in Ticehurst and also worth noting that a train can be caught into central London at Stonegate station, 5 minutes drive away.

We had a lovely stay and would return without hesitation.

 Recently spent 6 nights on this gem of a site. Situated in the heart of the Weald of Kent within easy access to Bewle Water, Hastings, Rye, Brighton.

A gently sloping site (remember some blocks, although site owner Peter has a few to help) with excellent facilities.

For a small, intimate site, it is unusual to find 2 shower units each with Shower, WC (with toilet paper) and Wash Basin both kept immaculately clean, 3 water points and 16A electricity.

A peaceful and quiet site with a super little Londis mini market in nearby Burwash for all your needs.

Plenty of public footpaths nearby with one lovely walk (3 miles) through the fields and woods to Ticehurst where the Bell Inn offers a superb lunch menu.

Owners, Pete and Sue, go out of their way to help every visitor.

 Stayed at this campsite as it was close to where we were going mountain biking. It's a lovely small campsite if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

Stunning views of the country side. Very quite and peaceful. Great area if you love mountain biking and walking, also national trust areas nearby. X2 toilet & shower blocks, plenty for the size of the camping site and they are very good too.

For those who have had a few drinks the night before and do not feel up to cooking breakfast, like my friend and myself, the owner of the site and the lovely b&b just 2 minutes down the road makes a lovely full Breakfast, which was much appreciated.

So overall very happy with our stay and look forward to taking my family next time.

 A great stay for our first motorhome experience. Beautiful area. Showers and facilities good. One of the two shower wasn't working but not a big deal.

Pete was great and extremely helpful particularly with finding us a long hose to fill our water tank instead of the pathetic 4 foot one provided by the rental company and pulling us out of the mud when we left.

The little shop/cafe was good too.

Reviewer: El Bongo 5 reviews from this member

 We had a great 3 nights here in late October. Beautiful views, lovely walks straight from the site. Friendly and helpful owners.

It's a camp-anywhere field but with electric hookups and clean, new, warm shower and toilet units as well as a shop and a couple of glamping units.

When we visited there was only us and a couple of other vans/caravans there so there was loads of room. The stated capacity is 5 caravans + 10 tents and I would imagine that there would be plenty of room for this number.

Great location for exploring a beautiful part of the country.

Reviewer: Edy_ 1 review from this member

 Weíve just returned for a week in the camping arch. Itís neat, tidy and well kept Ė a lovely place to stay. Iím afraid that weíve now been spoilt and will expect that level of comfort and convenience every time we go away!

The arch has its own ensuite so there was no danger of

1) needing to hunt out the waterproofs out in the dark to trek across a field to go to the loo at 2am

2) queue for a shower and hope the hot water hadnít run out.

The arch has its own gas (bottle) powered boiler with hot water on demand for the shower, bathroom sink and kitchen.

The kitchen area comes with a fridge, (low power) kettle, 800w microwave, toaster and 2 hob electric cooker. Thereís a sink, under-sink-bin, washing up bowl and washing up liquid was provided. Thereís plates, bowls, mugs, glasses, knives, forks and spoons for 4 people.

Thereís also a corkscrew/bottle opener, tin opener, 2 wooden spoons, 1 large plastic cooking spoon, 2 small sharp(ish) knives and a Pyrex bowl for the microwave. Thereís 1 saucepan with 2 tiers of steamers. Unless youíre a specialist in 1 pot meals or using steamers, you might want to bring a second saucepan / a frying pan.

We only brought a frying pan and managed fine between that and the provided saucepan. (We also brought our won tea towels & washing up sponge).

The arch has a 3 seater sofa (I think it folds out to make a bed but we didnít need it) and a double bed. The bed is in a nook at the back of the arch but wasnít as narrow/cramped as I thought it might be. There was a couple of inches either side of the bed so it was a comfy space. The mattress is noisy (crunches and creaks as you clamber out of the end of the bed) but comfy enough.

There isnít much space between the end of the bed and the sofa for the person sleeping by the outside wall getting in and out of bed. We managed fine but if you have mobility problems, it might be a bit of a challenge.

The finishing touches show thereís been a lot of thought put into setting up this arch. Thereís a large rug to cut down noise from the wooden floor; the curtains / blinds are effective at keeping light out; thereís a fire extinguisher and small oil radiator heater. The extractor in the bathroom means you donít need to worry about steam from the (very good) shower making the pod damp.

Thereís 4 hooks by the door for coats, a 4 shelf zip-front camping shelves unit by the sofa. Thereís a bit of space under the kitchen counter and storage space under the bed (accessed by sliding doors in the end of the base unit). There are 3 halogen lights and an additional light by the kitchen sink.

The bathroom has its own light and thereís an outdoor light. Thereís 2 adjustable folding chairs and a small table that fit perfectly on the veranda so 2 people can sit outside to eat.

The arch is insulated but was v warm when returning on sunny days. This was quickly fixed by opening both French doors at the front and the window above the bed at the back Ė creating a lovely through draught. We didnít need the heater at all.

While in the arch you can hear cars arriving/leaving the site, people using the bins in the small carpark (next door to the arch) or filling up from the standpipe by the arch. We could hear cars on the unclassified road that the site is on but it wasnít overly busy. The owls and sheep made as much noise as any traffic.

In general it was a quiet and peaceful site with beautiful views and friendly and welcoming owners.

 What a fantastic find! I was nearly not going to find out more about this site as it didn't have a website, but the excellent reviews convinced me to ring, and I'm so glad I did.

The site is in a beautiful location on a small-holding, it's small, very reasonably priced and the owner is a superb chap. There's a farm shop to buy bits and pieces and excellent eggs from their chickens, and a new toilet shower cubicle has just been added.

There's electric hookups but the site is great for tents too.

The site is within very easy driving distance of Battle, Hastings and a vast array of places to go and visit, and a short drive or cycle from Burwash, which has a few shops and pubs.

Perhaps best of all was that it was extremely quiet and peaceful, despite going at the height of summer holidays.

I would definitely recommend this to everyone, but particularly adults.
