 First visit to this campsite. All amenities excellent, a fairly small site all hard standing in woodland which did give the feel of a glorified car park.

There is no room for young children to play although the woodlands make up for this.

A very quiet site on our visit, would have thought not conducive to a group booking!

The two sawyers did lovely food as did the 3 oaks in the village of the same name, a lovely 50 minute walk on the 1066 route, good food and a deal of 9 for 2 courses in the week was most excellent!

 Delightful site in woods. Friendly, helpful staff. Although the grassy areas were waterlogged in many places, all the pitches and driveways were perfectly good and solid. The site itself is secluded and quiet - birdsong is superb all day. You feel miles away from civilisation. The approach road is long and narrow and needs a lot of care.

The walk to the nearest pub (The Two Sawyers) is 5 minutes through the woods on a marked path but that was too wet to use. The walk on the roads took 10 minutes. Either way the walk is worth it. The pub is a delight with a good menu. We were made very welcome. The other pub (The Royal Oak) is in the village but quite a way. The food was good but the portions were huge - we had to leave quite a lot. Two courses were too much for us.

Only gripe is that at 29 per night for an unawning pitch it seemed a bit pricey for an off-season visit.

 Set in woodland, this peaceful, secluded site is a joy to stay on.

You will be greeted by the site wardens Clive and Margaret who are happy to help. The toilet block is modern and spotless and there is a well stocked information room. Pett Level Beach is ideal for families and Camber Sands, Rye, Hastings are a few miles drive away. I would recommend 'The Coffee Lounge' at Dymchurch, which serves hot and cold drinks/food and fantastic customer service. Dogs are also allowed inside.

 My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights as a base for touring the Hastings area. Two of our friends also stayed here in their own unit.

We found this to be a very pleasant quiet site. The facilities are spotless. There are woods adjacent to the site through which you can walk to the local pub'The Two Sawywers', trees through the woods are marked with white paint so that you can find your way there and back.

We had a hard standing pitch with awning which we found to be more than adequate. The wardens on this site were welcoming and friendly.

There is a bus stop at the end of the lane from which you can get a bus into Hastings.

I find it hard to say anything negative about this site, the only comment would be that some of the pitches are slightly sloping.

 Nice little site in a quiet location surrounded by trees - lots of owls at night! Pitches are quite small and close together so views are not great - we looked out onto the side of the next caravan each side and the communal pitches at the front. Just about room to park the car beside us - would have been a squeeze if we had put up the awning. Wardens friendly enough but site probably a bit too formal for us. There's a pleasant walk from the corner of the site to the local pub which was recommended on arrival but we preferred one on the edge of the village (Royal Oak - homemade food and excellent quality). Definitely not a child friendly site as no open space/play area but would suit couples/older families. A short stroll up the lane takes you to good views for dark sky watching (although a local thought we might be sheep rustlers. ). Would recommend a visit to the Dungeness area - tall lighthouse to go up, fascinating scenery, and you can visit the power station (3 weeks notice required). Also a lovely train route from Dungeness to Hythe (recommended). Rye harbour nature reserve is also worth a visit. And don't forget Battle Abbey (950 year anniversary this year).

Reviewer: Amy1447 10 reviews from this member

 This a superb site set in lovely woodland. Pitches are hardstanding and we were on a great pitch. Great site for dog walking. A local pub within a few minutes walk serving great food. Wardens really helpful. Showers /toilet block really clean. This site is great for relaxing. You do need your car for visiting places as no bus stop nearby. All in all would highly recommend

 If you ever want to replicate a French campsite, this is it, laid back well set out pitches, easy access to Guestling wood and the beaches along to Winchelsea, an absolute laid back chill out site. This site doesn't accept tents and this review site doesn't acknowledge folding campers in their drop down menu very poor indeed!

Reviewer: Moppatops 1 review from this member

 Have just returned from a visit to this site and although quiet and a pleasant area, getting your caravan in one of the pitches can be a huge problem. The pitch sizes are very limited with 'just' enough room for your car, caravan and awning and no room what so ever to reverse Into the spaces, definitely a site you really need a mover on.

The showers and toilets were very clean and staff very friendly but the washing up room was crawling with big spiders and being someone who is terrified of spiders this was not a welcome sight!

Staff are incredibly friendly and very keen to help.

Reviewer: Iwalani 163 reviews from this member

 This is a pleasant little site in woodland, with bluebells still in flower when we stayed. The pitches are all hardstanding (gravelled) and of varying sizes. Most are level but a few (including ours) had quite a slope from front to back, so chocks are needed.

As there are a lot of tall trees, there aren't many pitches in full sun, and when it rains the water dripping from the trees onto the roof of the caravan can be quite loud! However we were lucky enough to get TV reception using our satellite dish. Mobile phone reception is also patchy.

The toilet facilities are excellent, and it seems a very dog-friendly site - there is even a doggy shower! Because of the size and layout, there isn't much room for children to play, so this may be a site better suited to adults. It was lovely and peaceful during our stay.

There are loads of interesting places to visit nearby, especially if you are interested in gardens or have National Trust membership. We enjoyed Scotney Castle and Sissinghurst, and hope to visit Pashley Manor and Great Dixter next time.

 Some sites make me itch to write about them while I am still there, this is usually because it was either exceptionally good or exceptionally bad. I am glad to write this review in favour of Fairlight Wood, I do believe I have found my favourite Caravan Club Site. My eight year old daughter and I arrived after a long journey from Normandy, the last few miles of which were along a very narrow lane, so be warned you caravan towers (there are other ways to it though)- we were welcomed by the friendly wardens whom really need to be mentioned. I am a sensitive soul and it is the site owners that usually affect me most, this couple really made me feel welcome, they were relaxed, warm and friendly and not often does my daughter make her own way from the pitch to the ice-cream freezer, so they made an impression on her too!

We settled into our pitch and went off for a walk. The area is quintessentially Sussex - rural, quiet, natural and friendly. As it's name suggests, the site is located in a woodland, which offer some lovely walks, a particular favourite of mine is the ten minute walk/cycle through the woods to the Two Sawyers, a lovely country pub, serving good food and beer. You can walk to the beach if you feel so inclined, or a day in Hastings. For the kids.

The toilet/shower facilities were faultless, I wonder if previous reviews were based on different wardens. They were clean, warm and functional, as were the two washing up sinks, which I never had to wait for. They have recycling, wi-fi and a very useful leaflet room where you can find out what else there is to do in the area. I'd simply recommend a long weekend, walking, relaxing, popping over to Dungeness, Rye, Camber Sands and drinking/eating in the fantastic pubs which you really have to ask the locals to find. I'll definitely be going back here sometime!
