Welcome to Dogwood Cottage Campsite -
a small, family-run Camping and Caravanning Club CS site in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Set in the pretty East Sussex village of Brede, we offer campers the chance to relax in quiet, friendly surroundings and a base from which to explore the area's fine beaches, ancient woodlands and rich, historic diversity. Dogwood is blessed with two fine country pubs  within walking distance as well as a sensational micro-brewery. Dog and animal-friendly, we are an ideal site for hikers, cyclists, families with young children or couples. However, please note that since the site is of limited size we are more suited to smaller tents and vans rather than larger units. We do not accept groups and are best suited to single families, single couples and single singles. Close to Rye, Battle, Camber Sands and Hastings, we're open all year round.

We look forward to welcoming you to Dogwood!

Katy & Phil

'A little slice of rural paradise...'


Here at Dogwood we live in harmony with the environment and try, as far as possible, to operate an organic, sustainable and environmentally-friendly campsite. We normally have a small shop selling campsite essentials, our Dogwood free range eggs and organic, vegetarian foodstuffs but at the moment, due to Covid-19 considerations, we are unable to open the shop. However, we will still sell logs and eggs onsite and these can be paid for with a contactless card reader. We recycle all rubbish and power the electric hook-ups partly using solar energy. We ask guests to help us by recycling as much waste as possible and to respect the environment, the site's abundant wildlife, not to mention fellow campers, at all times.


We hope you find Dogwood to be a magical place in which to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature and the wonderful birdsong. Here, you can spend hours watching the wild rabbits, the free range chickens, Cayuga, Indian Runner and Muscovy  ducks or getting to know our pygmy goats Olive and Pumpkin or Dino, our miniature Shetland pony. And at night, around a cosy campfire, you can toast marshmallows and look out for shooting stars under the magnificent dark skies of Brede.

Life's caravan is hastening on its way;
Brood not on troubles of the coming day
But fill the wine-cup ere sweet night be gone
And snatch a pleasant moment, while you may!
