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

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 1066 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.

Staff very friendly and on arrival someone came along on his bike to show us where to camp.

This review is for Normans Bay

Staff very friendly and on arrival someone came along on his bike to show us where to camp. Can be very windy, so if camping find a protected area. Facilities were well managed. Toilet/shower/washing up areas clean. The only let down was the recreation room which lacked care. Could have done with more seating and table areas and a bin. However the children learnt how to play pool there, so they enjoyed that. The shop was well stocked for essential items and our children felt confident enough to go in to buy sweets or milk which was helpful. Nearest supermarket about 4 miles away, so come well stocked. On site shop sells nice sausages, bacon and usual tinned produce. A lovely holiday all in all. Thank you!

Great site for family seaside holiday with lovely beach just across the road. Staff are friendly. Shower blocks new and clean. Good location for visitor attractions such as Hastings, Eastbourne, Pevensey Castle and Newhaven Fort. Would recommend this site and would happily stay there again.

Check in was chaotic which felt a bit unwelcoming.

This review is for Normans Bay

Check in was chaotic which felt a bit unwelcoming. We got a nice pitch however felt pitches were over crowded being double spaced. There is no issue with trains and noise as suggested in previous reviews. The site is located in a tired, run down area. However location is great by beach which was great during good weather.
