 This very pleasant site is on a large, undulating and well-mown field with good views to the north and east and woodland to the south and west. Approach is via a track past down-at-heel light industrial sheds - I imagine to do with the Kent and East Sussex railway - and close packed statics. Reception, shop and facilities are in a smart new block with the washing up sinks external but under cover.

It was a bank holiday weekend, and this site allows campfires, so we booked a pitch well away from the "Party Tents" which turned out to be perfectly civilised glamping bells. All the EHU pitches were occupied with a good mix of motorhomes, campervans, tourers and tents. Many were repeat stayers and the atmosphere was pleasant, friendly and relaxed. The very large central space is left empty, with all pitches round the edge. Children played in the middle and made good use of the play park off in the corner.

The only downside for me was that there's no usable shop within walking distance and not a lot in the way of public transport in the area. This must be a bother for motorhomers. This is also true of our usual weekender bolt-hole site, Bodiam Boating Station, which is a few hundred yards away, but there's a good restaurant and bar on site there and more going on generally.

 A lovely campsite with a mixed clientele of tents (mostly), campervans, motorhomes (we had a nice grass pitch with electricity) and in a different small field 5 bell tents. There are also a few 'pods' and, in another area, some static lodges.

The main campsite is a large field, in which the extensive centre is free of campers for people to play games in. There is a small adjoining wood which our family's children loved playing in. There are lovely countryside views all around, and the site is very peacefully located.

The new reception/shower/dishwashing block had just been finished in time for the end of lockdown. It is nice, with a couple of teething issues (water run-off) which I am sure will be soon fixed.

The Kent and Sussex steam train line runs past the site. There are only about 1 or 2 trains per day. When one steamed past, blowing its whistle and with its passengers waving to us, the whole campsite seemingly rushed down to a viewing platform to wave back, and take photos.

Ten minutes walk away, mostly down a protected lane, is an excellent little business where you can hire kayaks or rowing boats for a leisurely trip along the pretty little river Rother. We did that, and enjoyed burgers and beer in their cafť afterwards.

There's an Indian restaurant at the entrance to the site. The menu looked tempting but we didn't use it.

The site rents out firepits and sells bags of wood (including kindling and a firelighter); almost everybody (including us) seemed to have taken them up.

There are several beaches and the historic town of Rye 20-30 mins drive away.

Altogether a great weekend, with one irritation. There are notices around saying that dogs must be kept on leads, bu many owners clearly thought that didn't apply to them. The site owners didn't seem to make any attempt to enforce this rule. One dog deposited a large smelly piece of business in the (nicely set up) children's playground. Another dog (or maybe the same one) had to be chased off by us when it grabbed our shoes from outside our door and started chewing them.

 A really lovely campsite. They have just built brand new toilet/shower block and it is immaculate.

Great relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Good for families and adults.

Firepits and logs provided, if ordered. A play area for children and a spacious camping field so you do not feel crowded.

The steam train even goes past the bottom of the site!

Reviewer: Mitch894 1 review from this member

 We stayed here for three nights in total, the first night we had a group of around 13 young adults turn up, unbeknown to the owners I must say as they cheekily booked in separate pitches. We had only booked the two but after the first night of no sleep because of said group we decided to stay another night.

The owners were warm and welcoming and made us feel as at home as we could be, they popped down to see us in the early evenings too see if we would like to purchase any wood (which we did as the last 2 nights were so peaceful).

They have a lovely walk through the wooded area which our dogs loved! Her young daughter instantly feel in love with one of young dogs and couldnít get enough of them which was lovely for the dogs to have some attention, not to mention her being so polite so was a pleasure to have her pop by and say hello to the dogs, on the last night our charger broke and the owner lent us theirs for the night! Which we did unknowingly pack and shall send back! all in all itís a great site BUT only a few things I would say needed tweaking,

1st - the shop is very limited although we were told they are having a refurb so Iím sure it will be different in the forthcoming.

2nd - walking back to the tent from having a shower was slightly awkward, having to walk past peoples residential homes. All I would say is a fence would be a great thing!

And finally - the shower are a bit annoying having to constantly push the button for a 15 second burst of water.

Other than that a great site and will deffintly be back again for another visit!

 We spent the Easter weekend here camping with electric hook up. The site is amazing and plenty of space to pitch (our tent is huge).

Tents & Caravans were all around the edge of the field which left a huge area in the middle for kids to play.

Owners are very friendly and so helpful and came by several times a day (collecting rubbish, delivering fire wood and just to say hello) which is lovely. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they work very hard. Even cleaning the toilets at midnight before they go to bed!

Showers were always available (it was an unbelievably hot & sunny weekend), but I particularly liked the family showers (wet room style with toilet sink and shower all in together) which made getting the kids ready so much easier.

Loved the steam train passing by. Great little walk through the woods with the dogs and kayaking nearby.

We also visited Hasting beach and Camber Sands Beach, both approx. 20-25 mins away in the car. We did cheat one night and get an Indian takeaway from the restaurant by the entrance to the site which was delicious!

Can't wait to visit again.

 We have had a wonderful weekend at Rother Valley campsite.

Yes the facilities are basic but they were clean and worked what more do you need?

The owners/managers were amazing and came up absolute trumps when we had a major problem that would have ruined our weekend, they went well beyond the call of duty and it was appreciated.

The Indian next door is fabulous and a day trip to Bodiam castle on the nearby ferry was Most enjoyable. Add in a fire pit and it all adds up to a perfect weekend. Thanks Rother Valley campsite team

 Entrance to site is behind an Indian restaurant through a VERY uneven driveway. Man in office didn't seem to understand English and couldn't answer questions. We were given a list of No's and Dont's but not a lot of useful information.

There were a lot of static caravans that were occupied by various nationalities. There also seemed to be around 8 permanent caravans with awnings and gardens on the site. Caravan site was a lovely field with a small children's playground.

The Views across the country were stunning with the local Steam trains running across the bottom. The dogs on leads rule doesn't seem to be enforced. A man spent the whole week going backwards and forwards on a buggy with a trailer on the back, but didn't seem to actually be doing anything!

The showers are incredibly small (although I understand these are for improvement in 2018) with no facilities to hang clothes or sit to dry. My husbands clothes ended up on the other side of the door on a sopping wet floor.

The family shower room was too dirty to use. A notice is by the toilet emptying facility that says unless you use Organic toilet fluids you will not be allowed to empty your toilet. But that's ok because they happen to sell it ! A bit late telling us that AFTER the toilet has been set up and used.

The office never seemed to be open, apparently you could phone and someone would come, but not everyone wants to have to do that, or hang around for someone. Sorry wont be back.

 What a fantastic week away. Our first family camping trip we stayed at a amazing camp site and cannot recommend it enough to people.

We were luckily enough to be smack in the middle of the field. Toilets and shower facilities clean and tidy.

A small play area for the children which kept them amused. A lovely wooded area which we walked through most days. Staff where friendly and always willing to help.

A fantastic break and many thanks to Jackie and her team for making us welcome. Location of the site was perfect. Not too far from all of the local sites and attractions.

Trains went past campsite daily and stn was 5 mins away.

 Once again we have just returned from rother valley and as usual we loved it, the toilets were in there usual clean and tidy state and the family shower rooms are a godsend.

The porta loo and campers fridge were clean and working well, the playground was well used by the children on site and the bins and water point were nice and clean.

We were met with jackies usual friendly almost family like greeting (especially the dogs), our pitch was in good condition and just as vast as ever.

We really can recommend the White hart pub just up the road along with the Cock inn and the oak&ivy, but our No 1 recommendation has to be the Oak on the way to rye, very nice beer and the best burger I think I have ever had

We find that tesco in hawksworth is the best value and quality locally but jempsons has by far the cheapest petrol in the area

We will be back next year for our fourth visit in a row
