Why stay here ...

Graciously set within a former garden which boasts magnificent trees, Battle Normanhurst Court Club Site, which offers a choice between pitches in open areas or in small groups surrounded by shrubs for added privacy. Driving up to the entrance you will notice magnificent iron gates still bearing the name of the wonderful historic house. Visitors often marvel at the rhododendrons - an absolute riot of colour in the spring. Wander around the grounds and discover interesting artefacts from the former manor house such as floor tiles and ornate railings.

The site offers great facilities for families, including a play area for ball games and a playground on site. Dogs are also well catered for, with a lovely dog walk on site.

The caravan site is located close to the 1066 Trail, in a most delightful area of East Sussex. The area is rich with scenic delights for walkers, nature lovers and those who simply crave a quiet escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The attractive seaside towns of Eastbourne and Hastings are just a few destinations that are conveniently located just a short drive away from the Battle Normanhurst Court Club Site. Battle is another small but busy town that is well worth the visit for its rich history - the Battle of Hastings was won here by William the Conqueror and the picturesque Abbey stands to this day in commemoration of the victory. The audio tour of the Abbey and the historic battlefield are well worth including in your itinerary. The caravan park also puts you within easy reach of the charming port town of Rye, complete with its castle and cobbled streets. More local attractions include the Carr Taylor Vineyard, which offers fine East Sussex wines, and a great selection of nearby National Trust properties to explore.

During the year the Battle area is host to many special events, including the Battle Bonfire parade, a marvellous spectacle and prior to that, over the August Bank Holiday weekend, the Medieval Festival at Herstmonceaux Castle which attracts visitors from afar - A treat for families and all ages.

One of the Best

Just had a great break at this site, the grounds were well kept and the toilet blocks were always clean and tidy. The wardens were two of the best that I have come across with the CMC, keep up the good work

Good site.

Wardens the friendliest we've met. Pretty site but found footpaths too restricting not allowed dogs off lead on main one to Catsfield. Limited also on 1066 trail. Our dog loves running in woods but the woodland on dog walk you had to keep her on a lead. We stayed for 4 nights but found it too long as we like walking but after we had done 1066 trail there was no where else to walk. Two nights would have sufficed. The pub in Catsfield does good food but other than the shop there is nothing else there. Would stay again but only for 2 nights.

Beautifully laid out site with fantastic faciliies

This is probably one of the best sites in the club! A lovely varied layout with groups of pitches surround by mature trees and a mixture of grass or hardstanding. Nothing like the car park feel you get a some sites with all the vans in neat rows!! A little bit of road noise at the northern end of the site but not enough to disturb our stay. We'll definitely be back and will stay for longer next time! The kids liked the playground, the wardens were very friendly and helpful and the facilities were up to the Club's usual exceptional standards! 10 out of 10.

Lovely site, variety of pitches and great facilities

Stayed here for 3 nights and would have liked to stay longer. Very friendly warden checked us in and we had several choices of pitch and position to look at. The facilities were verygood, plenty of showers etc, clean and well designed. The disabled facilities were excellent and again, clean and spacious. Facilities closed between 10 and 11 for cleaning, later would have been better. Nice site for walking the dog and in a lovely location. Suggestions for the club - when making hardstanding pitches please make a few non gravel for wheelchair users. We will definitely be returning to this site as the area has lots to offe, we enjoyed the site and appreciated the helpful staff.

Lovely peaceful site with friendly wardens

Have just returned from a weekend at this site with our 3 puppies... friendly welcome but don’t arrive before 12 noon or you have to wait! Wardens friendly and welcoming , clean and organised fairly small site... lovely and peaceful stay with lots of space... loved the walks with our dogs straight from the site... we walked for 12 miles along the 1066 trail after working out where we needed to go so watch the signs carefully! Followed the walk through country lane to Catsfirld to the White Hart pub... friendly and welcoming with excellent food... be warned portions are large and filling but lovely food... just remember you need to walk back to the site afterwards! Toilet and shower block x 2 on site... one was closed for maintenance but wasn’t a problem as site wasn’t full... clean tidy and well organised... separate disabled facilities too... Some road noise can be heard from some pitches but wasn’t a problem where we were. All in all a lovely site with good places to visit.... will definitely be back...
