Beach camping in South East England

This area may be dominated by the capital, but it’s far from the only reason to spend time in this delightful region, with its quiet fishing villages, seaside towns and coastline providing a great contrast to the excitement of city life.


AdgestoneOur Club Site with its heated outdoor swimming pool is perfect for a family break, while beach lovers will be spoilt for choice. Sandown is one and a half miles from the site and is great for families, while there are plenty of facilities and activities at Shanklin, Ventnor, Cowes and Ryde too – with all four areas being easily accessible from the site on either the steam railway or Island Line train (using London underground trains).


ChichesterNear the top of Chichester Harbour, our Club Site offers numerous attractions for all the family, including the beaches of the south coast. The Sussex Coastal Footpath passes close by the site, and everyone will enjoy a visit to the seaside village of Emsworth one and a half miles away. If you want to venture further south, a 12 mile trip to West Wittering will reward you with a dramatic, unspoilt sandy beach.

The site overlooks a shingle beach that is ideal for birdwatchers, anglers and walkers, while you can walk into Folkestone (2.5 miles) using the footpath from the site. Folkestone has a cobbled high street, promenade, harbour and long stretch of sandy beach, with golden sand and calm waters perfect for swimming. Home to the Folkestone Underwater Park, there is a 2km stretch of marine reserve here too, which is particularly good for snorkelling.

Norman’s Bay

Access to the Pevensey Levels – known for nature conservation and agriculture – is nearby, and nature lovers will also enjoy the beautiful South Downs. The seaside town of Eastbourne is five miles from the site, with its award-winning beaches, seafront restaurants, shops and craft outlets. Also in Eastbourne is the Miniature Steam Railway Adventure Park, with a five-acre fishing lake and trains of several sizes.
