General

  • Relaxed and friendly rural site five minutes' drive from Rye
  • A 15-minute drive from the beach at Camber Sands
  • Pub five minutes' walk away and bus to Rye just outside the site

Coast, country, castles, campfires – the cracking combo that’s likely to send you haring off (with hounds if you’ve got some that need a hol) to Hare and Hounds Campsite, a relaxed and friendly place in the highly scenic surrounds of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

What a fab location this is… there’s plenty of space around the two and a half acres to relax or run about (depending on your preference), and it’s a mere five minutes’ trot from a country pub that’ll welcome you all in (kids and dogs included) for a meal or a couple of pints (this last not for the kids and dogs…). More pubs, restaurants and shops are five minutes’ drive away in Rye; save yourself the hassle of parking by boarding the bus directly outside the site.

Filling many a day is an easy task around these parts: Camber Sands is 15 minutes' drive away for beach antics, and you can swot up on all kinds of history with trips to Bodiam Castle, Rye Castle and Hastings, all within half an hour.

This is a place that thrives on plenty of peaceful slumbers, so if you’ve got party times in mind you’ll need to look elsewhere. Cosy evenings round barbecues and campfires are enthusiastically embraced, however; the friendly folks on site will loan you a firepit stacked with all the necessary accoutrements for a small extra charge.

The refurbished amenities include six spankingly clean toilets and four similarly spick-and-span showers.

    We had a great stay at this lovely campsite. We originally booked for one night, but decided to stay for two as it was so pleasant. The owner was extremely friendly and the facilities were very clean and well thought through. I would recommend this site to anybody wanting to discover this amazing part of the country.

    It was relaxed but well-organised. We chose our own pitch on an uncrowded field, and the owner brought us the fire-basket we'd ordered. The facilities were appropriately rustic - a washing up area in a timber shelter, and a small block of shower and loo cubicles - but everything was clean and worked well.

Local attractions

Love long walks or bike rides? Site staff will happily point you towards plenty of places to get those legs going – top picks include the family trails and dedicated mountain bike trails at Bedgebury Forest (half an hour’s drive), gentle strolls around seafront Romney Marsh (25 minutes) and trips to Bewl Water (35 minutes) for walking, cycling, fishing and rowing on the lake.

Want more watersports? Spectacular Camber Sands beach (15 minutes’ drive) is a popular place to have a crack at kitesurfing, while the calmer waters around Rye are more suited to windsurfing and paddleboarding.

If you’d rather stay dry, Rye’s a fab place for a laidback day bimbling around the castle, museums and antique shops. Other landlubbing days out include the moated medieval Bodiam Castle (20 minutes’ drive), rides on the Northiam Steam Railway (10 minutes) and meeting all sorts of farm animals, birds of prey and butterflies at the Rare Breeds Centre (20 minutes), where you’re highly encouraged to time your visit to coincide with pig racing time.
