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 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

Normans Bay is tidy and well run with excellent loos and showers which were kept spotlessly clean. The toilet blocks are basic but well decorated and there was never a shortage of toilet rolls! We had been warned that the site was very windy but we were able to choose a plot as much out of the wind as possible. We then bought some extra strong tent pegs from the helpful staff at the site shop and had no problems anchoring our tent to the ground. There were a few children camping while we were there but they were well behaved and we did not have any of the problems described in earlier reviews. The mobile fish and chip shop calls on a Friday night which is very useful. Nice to relax and not have to cook after driving to the site and pitching the tent. This site is very close to the (mostly) stony beach and it is open to dogs so ours enjoyed a happy romp along the sand; which is exposed at low tide. Pevensey Castle and Herstmonseux Castle are worth a visit. We enjoyed our visit and hope to return.

First trip away in the camper and the site was everything we could of asked for.

This review is for Normans Bay

First trip away in the camper and the site was everything we could of asked for. Made to feel welcome from the start to finish. Toilets were always clean and the showers more than acceptable. Playaround was loved by my son and the peacefulness of the site by his parents! We will definitely be going back again.

This review is for Normans Bay

I had booked to stay at the site for a 3 night short break, but only stayed for 2. During a walk along the beach in the early morning sunshine I just managed to stop one of my dogs from walking onto a fishing tackle 'rig' which consisted of 1.5m of line, a large weight and 2 HOOKS. I picked these up and placed them into a bag in order to show the wardens and alert other members of the danger. Having returned to my van I noticed my Labrador had a fishing hook caught in her mouth. These dreadful things have a barbs on them. As I live fairly local, I was able to rush my dog to my vet where she underwent an operation to remove the hook. My poor dog had to endure the suffering of this because of a selfish bunch of anglers not picking up their vile equipment. It's worth noting that this also left me with a �400 vet bill. I have since heard that this is happening ever more frequently, my vet alone is seeing a rise in hooks having to be removed from dogs where they have been swallowed. Please ALL dog owners take extra care on this beach! The site itself and the staff were excellent, but I shall not be returning.
