Hare and Hounds Campsite provides a relaxed and friendly camping experience for those wishing to explore the historical and beautiful surroundings of this area: the owners guarantee you'll never be short of things to do or things to see whatever the weather.
The two fields here total around two and a half acres so there's plenty of room to run around. The facilities were refurbished in 2016 and now include four very clean toilets and four hot showers.
A pub is just five minutes' walk from the site and a bus stop just outside the property: hop aboard the bus here and it'll take you directly into Rye.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome.
Please note that group bookings are not accepted: this is a site suitable for families, couples and small family groups only.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
