Adjacent to the beach, Normans Bay site is a haven for walkers and nature lovers.

Please note that the play area will be out of use between 10/05/2016 and 25/05/16 due to a new play area being installed.

On the East Sussex coast, our Normans Bay Club campsite is perfect for family camping holidays. Opposite is a sand and shingle beach - ideal for sandcastles, kite flying and bathing. The popular seaside resorts of Eastbourne and Brighton are to the west and Bexhill-on-Sea to the east.

The open and level site has 200 pitches and three amenity blocks. Facilities include washing machines, a parent and child room, children’s play area and recreation hall. There is also a well-stocked site shop.

The nearby Pevensey Levels, known for nature conservation and agriculture, will satisfy nature lovers. For walkers, the South Downs Way (pick it up at the Seven Sisters Country Park) is a great way to see the stunning East Sussex countryside.

The area is steeped in history - the Normans landed here in 1066. Join the 1006 Way which takes you around Battle, Hastings and Pevensey Castle, one of Britain’s oldest strongholds, to discover some of this history.

Eastbourne, five miles south west of the campsite, offers a plethora of things to see and do. There are parks and gardens, the Sovereign Marina with a host of shops, craft outlets and eating places and several beaches offering safe bathing and a variety of water-based activities.

Other attractions in the area include the magnificent moated Herstmonceux Castle, Drusillas Park and Charleston Manor.

Worth Noting

The site is next to a dog-friendly beach, where fishing is available.

Ball games and kite flying are not permitted on site, however the adjacent beach is a perfect spot for these activities.

WiFi

This review is for Normans Bay

My partner has stayed at Norman's Bay many times and said himself that the site had improved immensely. This was my first stay at Norman's Bay and I totally enjoyed myself, in a relaxing way. The shower block nearest the entry barrier was very tidy and kept very clean, but I wish in the showers there was a hot and cold tap and not just a hot push tap. I understand you need a drain runaway but I wish the shower walls went right to the floor. Its not very nice when your showering and a mop head comes through from the next shower stool. The week we stayed was very wet so it isn't Norman's Bay fault but the site does require better ran water drainage, as when we took down are tent, there was a water puddle trapped under the ground sheet. The shop looked like it sold everything you needed except for Norman's Bay fridge magnets. I had to purchase a Pevensey Bay fridge magnet which was the nearest place to Norman's Bay. It might be a nice idea to have a special section just for tents, as I felt the caravan and motorhome owners kept to themselves and we were the odd ones out.

Great base just outside Eastbourne so ideal for walking the Seven Sisters parking free by the start. 10 min walk to station and then an hour train ride to Brighton. beach pebbly but ideal for beach casting.

Love this site and we have been many times.

This review is for Normans Bay

Love this site and we have been many times. Facilities are good and the beach is a stone throw away. Eastbourne town centre is a 10 min drive away. You can also walk / drive 2 miles to Pevensey Bay for shops, pubs and fast food. Only downside this trip was the amount of people who the campsite rules don't apply too. The site says no ball games, kites or frisbees yet every evening we had to listen to kids booting a football against the toilet block. We also had cricket being played in front of us. Fed up with having our tent hit by balls. People pay a lot of money for caravans and sone tents and do not want them damaged by balls, hence why the no balls rule. How about walking over to the beach to play ? Or maybe, the parents can't tear themselves away from their cans of beer !! I think the wardens need to be stricter enforcing these rules. My other gripe was 5 tents and a motorhome all with accompanying cars on 3 pitches which made access on and off our pitch difficult . The six metre rule should be enforced. Will we return ? Yes, but not on a bank holiday
