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.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

Worth Noting

The site is next to a dog-friendly beach, where fishing is available. Well-stocked site shop sells a range of food as well as bottled gas. No ball games, kite flying or frisbees are allowed on site. These can be played on the beach opposite the site.

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 Smugglers Pub in Pevensey uses local produce and is dog friendly. Campers can also get 10% off their meal.

This review is for Normans Bay

Advance booked this site as we normally do only to be told when we were half way there that they had cancelled our booking that morning ( left a message on my phone which I left at home ). Had to turn round and come back as all other campsites everywhere are full due to being Easter weekend. Luckily we called the site to see what time we could get on otherwise we would have driven another 2 hours to then have to turn round and drive back. Thanks for ruining our mini break and first trip in our new caravan and thanks for telling us in the morning after we left rather than the night before. Thanks for letting us pay �20 to get our caravan out of storage and �20 to put it back in. Thanks for ruining our weekend, we so won�t bother coming back with customer service like that ! Now waiting to see if I get a refund !!!

We initially only booked for one night but liked it so much we stayed on for three! It was my first time campervaning since I became disabled. When they heard I have a mobility impairment, the friendly staff guided us to park up right next to the facilities. I was very impressed with the facilities, far nicer than many I've seen in hotels. It is spacious, very well thought out with grab handles where you need them, a lovely new shower with seat and big stool you can sit on while dressing etc. The room has heating and a hair dryer. Made a lovely start to the day. Will definitely be back. Thank you.

This review is for Normans Bay

This was one of many wonderful campsites that we stayed on a two week tour, and it was our favourite. The location and facilities were fabulous, as were the staff. We�ve found club staff to be great everywhere, and often remarkably so, but the staff at Norman�s Bay were the best so far - they were positively radiant with enthusiasm about the site, and so very informative, kind and helpful.
