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

On the East Sussex coast, our Norman’s 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

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

There is a farmers' market in Pevensey Bay every other Saturday. The Star Inn offers campers a discount voucher for mid-week carvery lunches.

The new shower/toilet block is lovely, just needs a path past the washing up facilities, and somewhere to hook dog leads while you pop in?? Have been here loads of time and will keep retuning

This review is for Normans Bay

The site staff were very friendly and kept the site in immaculate condition. They were particularly helpful when we got into difficulties at 8pm in the evening. My young puppy dog managed to lock us out of the motorhome whilst my husband was in the washing up area and I was at a water point filling a bottle. All keys, phones and documentation for insurance were inside the van. Help. The staff provided phones and assistance while fellow campers rallied to our rescue. 90 mins later we were back inside our van with minimal damage to it. Our puppy was relived to see us and totally oblivious to the trouble she had caused. It was a very reassuring experience to see how people will try to help others in difficulty and very much appreciated. Thank you to all concerned.

We have camped at this site before with our dog. Sometimes young grandchildren too.

This review is for Normans Bay

We have camped at this site before with our dog. Sometimes young grandchildren too. The Sea is just across the road which runs along one side of the site. The beach is stones, however, at low tide sand is exposed. Trains do run a couple of fields away behind the site, with 2 carriage trains and not very often, don't find they cause a problem. The site for tents is level. Being coastal is prone to the wind, no problem with tent pegs. There are various spots that have protection from the wind. Used 'electric' as it's early in the tent season. Caravans greatly outnumber tents on this very busy site. Asda is the closest supermarket - I always google various supermarket postcodes before leaving home, so can TomTom to find them easily. Sainsbury and Waitrose are also in Eastbourne. Off site dog walking this trip, we went to Seven Sisters Country Park. Would go again with a picnic. Old amenities block has been refurb'd and is WARM, again as with every CCC site loads of hot water. Very impressed with disabled / child unit, forgot to mention to site office while on site, maybe a stool to sit on whilst drying/dressing as loo does not have a seat lid that I could have used. Very pleasant stay, welcoming, helpful wardens. This site has become our 'regular home site' 150 miles from home. This weekend, has to be a first NO RAIN AT ALL, tent folk really dislike rain....

This review is for Normans Bay

We found our arrival to Normans Bay site a very welcoming one. We were very concerned after reading previous reviews on-line with respect to the people running the site. But it appears they are long gone and now a very welcoming friendly team awaits! The toilet blocks were kept very clean and had recently been brought up to standard. The one HUGE let down was the lack of things for the children to do. My boys are huge football fans and feel as though they have lost a limb without their footballs... so we took one... the site was not at all busy - hence they went a passed the ball between them way - way away from any other tents or motorhomes - but one happy camper complained! The staff were very polite when they came to speak to us and as we all know rules are rules. But come on... no-one was within 50 yards of the kids! Anyway, they stopped and all was fine. In my opinion this location is not ideal for children especially when the weather is not great. Yes is has a beach but as we all know English weather is not great! Overall - a lovely couple of days away -will visit once more but then not again purely as nothing for the kids to do and they get bored... as kids do!
