The 2018 Easter Rally will take place at Park Farm Caravan and Camp Site which is near Bodiam Castle on the Kent / East Sussex border. Bodiam is north of the historic and picturesque town of Battle (of 1066). Rye, Winchelsea, Hastings, Eastbourne and the Seven Sisters are all within cyclable distance. The area is awash with traditional Sussex architecture and oast-houses. There are also numerous farm shops with cafes. Bodiam Castle, Battle Abbey and the Kent and East Sussex Railway are all close by.

The campsite is away from the road, and comprises several large fields. There are approximately 40 electric hook-ups which will be held for us until 31st January 2018. There is a good childrens’ playground with covered area. There is also a modern barn / storage unit which we will be using for the Friday night social and Saturday night AGM. Onsite there is a mini camp shop and snack bar.
