“Lovely stay.” Gary

November 2017

I had not been to Cedar Gables before but definitely will again. Camped there for 5 days in a tent to prepare for a longer hike while testing my equipment. The site has a great location and is very peaceful. The owner was always very helpful and guided me to places I could visit on foot so I hiked around Bewl Water and Scotney Castle and elsewhere on public footpaths. On my countryside walks I saw birds and cows, horses and sheep, all kinds of wildlife and the air was so fresh. The facilities were good and matched my needs and the access to a kettle simplified meals and washing dishes. All in all I found it a lovely place to stay.

“Relax as little or as much as you like at Cedar Gables.” Andy

May 2016

This site is very clean and tidy with excellent facilities run by a lovely family. 
Little extras that have been thrown in at no charge put this site above others are kettles to use in washing up area, BBQ's available to use (Coal purchased at on site shop) 2 x fridge freezers in a comfy quiet reading room.
The site does have a slope to it so I recommend bringing your own ramps and blocks in high season, the site does provide some again at no cost but could run out.
Showers run on tokens 50p each and last for 5 minutes. 
Cedar gables is perfectly located, only a 20 minute off road cycle ride to Bewl Water Reservoir (loads to do for kids)
and a 2 minute drive to Bedgebury National Pinetum that has Adult and child Go Ape courses 8 adventure playgrounds for kids and enough mountainbike trails for all the family to enjoy for a whole day cycling and also a Pinetum with 20000 different Pine trees. I guarantee you will enjoy your stay at Cedar Gables as much as my little one did.

Carlight Enthusiasts Club Rally

July 2015

 

Dear Giovanna & Francis
I am still catching up on all my jobs now we are back home.
One of course is to write to you and express our thanks for the manner in which you took care of us during the rally. Everyone was very complimentary about your site and we hope it will be recognised again by the C&CC. You live in a very nice part of the Country with endless places for your visitors to see. We wish you all the best in your new Bungalow and hope you have many happy years there.


Thanks once again.

Brilliant

February 2015

 

We arrived quite late at the end of January. The owner couldn't be more helpful, we parked on the hard standing next to the house as we were the only people there. We had paid a deposit but the owner didn't badger us for the remainder and in the end we found him to pay. We went for walks around bowl water and again the owner came to the rescue by giving us a map and showing us where to go even advising us at to the fact it was muddy. This site is open all year and it was very peaceful even though it was windy. The shower blocks operate on a token system which we found in a cup near the front door plenty of time to have a shower although these were a little colder than I would have liked but it was winter. We will definitely visit again. Please note this campsite is sloped however there are blocks for caravans and motor home which we used, not sure how you would fair in a tent maybe direct your sleeping area so as your feet are facing down the slope

Lovely site

Stayed June 2014

 

We had a lovely stay at Cedar Gables in June. We have not stayed before but some friends recommended this site after they stayed in the Easter.

We are glad we took their advice! Cedar Gables is a lovely, well equipped site. The owners are a blessing and made our stay so pleasurable. There is plenty to see and do near the site, with a walk to Bewl Water right on the door step, as well as lots of other picturesque woodland walks on the doorstep. 

We are looking forward to visiting again, hopefully for a quick weekend before the summer ends.

Brilliant campsite

Stayed April 2014

 

Just came back from a two night stay with three children under seven. What a brilliant campsite! The owners were really friendly and welcoming. Walked twenty minutes to the nearby lake, beautiful countryside walk through forests of bluebells. The setting is lovely. Bbqs are provided. Sat at our provided picnic bench and had a lovely meal watching the following wildlife no more than thirty feet away; pheasants, wild rabbits, squirrels and blackbirds. This campsite is a must stay. The toilets and showers were spotless. The owners provide chocs as the site is on a slight slope. Well done to the owners, they have made a little heaven. Will defiantly be returning.

"A lovely little campsite, with friendly owners"

Stayed April 2014

 

The toilet area was very clean and modern, as were the showers, which are also very spacious. The showers take a 50p token for about 5mins, which was plenty of time and lovely and warm. 

There are plenty of wash up areas as well as a freezer to use to store your own food or re-freeze your cool blocks. 

I'm glad we bought along a torch as the campsite is very dark at night, the toilet block is not lit at night and you are asked to turn on and off the lights as you come and go, although when we stayed in off peek season there was only 4 campers on site, and I guess a larger amount of campers on site may generate more of there own lights to help find your way, as many campers have awning/solar lights around their pitches. But I'm sure many a camper packs a torch anyway. 

The camping field is on a slope, and there are ramps around the site to use, although we didn't use any and didn't find it a problem at all. 

The site is lovely and peaceful, and we could often spot pheasants and rabbits from our pitch, as well as many birds tweeting in the evening. 

The little play park got a big thumbs up from my 6 and 4 year old, and as the campsite is quite small, it's easy to keep an eye on them. 

Overall a fab campsite and is on our list of ones to come back to for another weekend break.
