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.

Train station close by so able to take train to either Eastbourne or Hastings or others further on. Walks along the pebble beach were enjoyable as well as walking into next town/village and beyond. A peaceful few days.

This review is for Normans Bay

We came here last year having heard there were new managers (we had given the site a miss for a few years because of the reign of a particularly unpleasant manager) and it was such a different holiday experience, they new managers and staff are kind, helpful and welcoming its a well run site and clean. This site can be quite windy so awnings need to be well pinned down, it's a great for our energetic dogs because the beach is dog friendly, worth checking the Normans bay tide tables and walking you dogs at low tide as its softer on paws especially if they like the water. (Beach shoes are a good investment before coming here) You can walk along the top instead though if you want to stay dry but it's pebbles and not the easiest walk . There is a great grassy dog walk at pevensey castle you can walk around the the whole castle a small part goes along a lane (lovely old houses) and if you walk right through the church yard you Reach a huge field away from the road (at the bottom of the main car park) Herstmanceux castle has very pretty grounds (dogs on leads only) the "castle" is very pretty outside but inside its actually kitted out like "council offices" as its actually a modern university. ( Not worth paying for the tour ) The Star pub the other side of Normans bay station in sluice lane does good food. (Dogs aren't allowed inside but the gardens are nice) and Rosie's fish bar in pevensey is excellent the chip van on site is not that good (very greasy) it's well worth the drive to Rosie's . There are loads of good eateries at sovereign harbour (free parking). Dogs are welcome (outside only) at the resturants there and many have canopies to shelter from rain. There also a huge Asda store there. The pevensey fried chicken shop does excellent pizzas and fried chicken. There a proper Starbucks and M&S food store at the Polegate rounderbout services which is only a few mins away.

This review is for Normans Bay

My friend had already arrived and was setting up their trailer-tent, so just to annoy, we pulled our motorhome onto the pitch and just got the chairs out so we could watch... Good thing we are friends! Just a few days over Easter this trip, but the site was almost full. Nobody had problems, other than the usual wrong way driving that is prevalent every site we use. Site was overall quiet. Trains ran past all weekend, but these are modern diesel-electric units and so relatively quiet and unobtrusive to us. A couple of low flying light planes too, but not over-loud either. Easter weekend was therefore rather quiet and most welcome for us. We didn't venture out from the 'van as we brought everything we needed. But we still chose to have a couple of local eatery deliveries which were once again very tasty. Friday night a chippie is parked on the drive-in, and meals are cooked to order. Local Indian lived up to meals from recent visits. We didn't get round to the Chinese - that'll do for next time! But the best thing is that these will deliver to the caravan site! Most in my home area would only deliver to a house, so well chuffed at this service. C&CC staff were all very helpful, and happy to just take a few moments for a short chat, as the guests chose. Site is kept clean and tidy. There are no bins for general rubbish. There are bulk bins in a compound next to reception, and the expectation is that the bulk of the rubbish we all produce should be presorted and placed in the correct recycling bin. Another great break thoroughly enjoyed. We'll be back!!
