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.

Local town had basics with plenty of choice for eating out supermarkets you had to travel a bit further as for the site it was clean facilities whilst we were there we found clean and tidy did our bit for recycling one small comment unlike other sites I've been too the wifi is limited and does not have extra aerials to boost the signal throughout the site so you have to stand near reception for a signal which is bit of a pain apart from that we had a great time

This review is for Normans Bay

Normans Bay has always been a summer destination for us with the children (all seven of them). Been camping. trailer tenting and now caravanning there for the best part of 30 years. We love the site along even with it's various seasonal ups and downs over the years. This year it has been outstanding!! The pitches are well tended, the site is immaculate with flowers planted around the site as are the toilet and recreational facilities. The staff this year are simply amazing - a happy, cheerful, chatty bunch who run the site with thought and sensitivity (to rules and needs). They all appear to be proud of the site and what they are there to do. It seems that no request is too much bother or effort for them. Brilliant team!! After visiting for so long you'd think we would run out of things to do? NO, certainly not!! The annual airshow at Eastbourne is brilliant, the castles, abbeys and local historic sites are always changing and amending their offer. The Sussex countryside and coast are a true tonic. Lots of nice spots for coffees, teas and relaxing snacks out - we love the National Trust cafe at Birling Gap for coffee and reasonably priced lunch plus special ice creams for our four legged friends. "Old Sock" does nothing for me but it was lapped up by our old Labrador. The beach next to the site, just over the road actually, is pebbles - hard on the feet but easy on the towels. Swimming, boating, kayaking and fishing all easily accessed here. Or you can just watch the world go past if that is too energetic. Food is available at all levels from the vast range of supermarkets within a few miles (name you favourite store and it's probably within range), local shops and markets and a vast range of takeaway options. Certainly worth visiting whatever your plans are, active, aquatic or just plain restful this is the place to go.

This review is for Normans Bay

We used Normans bay as a base to explore the Country 1066. There is so much to do and the Staff from site had allways a good hint to visite some hidden treasures. We loved the site that we expend our stay on site, even this was no problem. Also when we got the rest of the family which came later, the friendly staff sorted us out with no problem. They are so helpfull and they take care of their guests. Thank you again from Germany
