Cedar Gables Campsite
Cedar Gables Campsite is a small site with good facilities, surrounded on three sides by trees.
There is a footpath to Bewl Water which is ideal for walking, cycling, fishing and sailing.
Situated on the Kent and Sussex border we are close to many National Trust properties, and within easy reach of Tunbridge Wells and Hastings.
We try to run a quiet site, this is not the place for you if you are planning noisy, late night get togethers.
Facilities include separate showers and toilets for ladies and gents, hair dryers, electric hook-ups, dish washing, electric kettles and bar-b-ques. There is also a campers lounge with sitting area, fridge freezer and phone charging point.
OUT AND ABOUT
• Bedgebury National Pinetum has the finest collection of conifers in the world providing enjoyment to visitors who come to appreciate the beauty and tranquillity of this unique attraction, which nestles quietly among lakes and valleys in the Kent countryside.
• Bewl Water Reservoir is the largest stretch of open water in south east England. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, in the heart of the High Weald on the Kent and Sussex border, the reservoir is host to a huge variety of wildlife and one of the region’s most popular attractions.
Scotney Castle Garden, Lamberhurst (National Trust). One of England’s most romantic gardens, designed in the picturesque style around the ruins of a 14th-century moated castle. There are rhododendrons and azaleas in profusion, with wisteria and roses rambling over the old ruins. Wonderful vistas and viewpoints abound, and there are beautiful woodland and estate walks.
• Batemans (National Trust): The home of Rudyard Kipling from 1902-36, the interior of this beautiful Jacobean house reflects the author’s strong associations with the East. There are many Oriental rugs and artefacts, and most of the rooms – including his book-lined study – are much as Kipling left them. The delightful grounds run down to the small River Dudwell, where there is a watermill, and contain roses, wild flowers and herbs. Kipling’s Rolls-Royce is also on display.
• Great Dixter House and Gardens: The Manor of Dixter is first noted in 1220 and structural additions were made again in 1464. In 1910 the English architect Edwin Lutyens restored Great Dixter and designed the gardens. Today, the gardens are cultivated by author and lecturer Christopher Lloyd. The garden is composed of a series of small gardens including a fine topiary garden, rose garden, kitchen garden – an attractive mingling of vegetables and flowers – a large orchard with many pockets of wild flowers and a magnificent herbaceous border in summer, truly a joy for any gardener to visit
• Sissinghurst Castle (National Trust): One of the world’s most celebrated gardens, the creation of Vita Sackville-West and her husband Sir Harold Nicolson. Developed around the surviving parts of an Elizabethan mansion with a central red-brick prospect tower, a series of small, enclosed compartments, intimate in scale and romantic in atmosphere, provide outstanding design and colour through the season.
