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.

Excellent, relaxing

Just got home from staying here for 7 nights, 1st time at caravan & motorhome site, We have had caravan for over ten years and can honestly say this is one of the best we have stayed at. The wardens were great welcomed us on to site and informed us of the best pitch that was available, which we had a look at and loved it so pitched up and had a fantastic stay. Everyone was so friendly and nice...Toilets were clean exactly what you would expect, think the cleaning fairies were at work as never saw anyone cleaning them... I can`t wait to come again we will definitely be back and will book next years holiday with this club. Loved it.

One of the best !!

Visited this caravan park over the August bank holiday, and must say this is one of the best. We took our young granddaughter and felt very safe there at all times, she loved looking for rabbits on site and doing the explorer letter search, for which she was given a great prize. The staff are very friendly, the park is large but felt small and cosy at times (depends where you pitch) The facilities were outstandingly clean and looked after, which is very pleasant to see. There are lots of trees and the site is well laid out, you get a great choice of pitches. The site is well located for many days out, local pubs serving value for money food. On some of the pitches it can be a bit of a slope and the entrance can be a bit dodgy when you come out onto the main road, but don't let these put you off, you will not be disappointed if you visit here, we will definitely be back !!!

Excellent, well-laid-out site.

Stayed for four nights in Agust, in our caravan. It takes a keen eye to see the site entrance, tucked away on a junction, so don't overshoot. Once located, the site is accessed by a long driveway which reveals a very spacious and well-arranged site indeed, with very spacious grass pitches in particular. On our arrival we were asked whether we preferred grass or hardstanding, and two decades of tenting previous to our 'van made the choice grass. The choice of pitches was very good, with far more than the regulation 6 metres of space, and the design compartmentalises the site with copses of trees and bushes so that the site seems smaller than it actually is. On our preferred pitch the grass had suffered badly through a non-breathable groundsheet laid down for an extended time, so with permission and careful measuring, we were able to pitch to let the grass recover. The site is everything one comes to expect in terms of smooth-running and cleanliness. We appreciated the dog-walk which directly accessed the footpath network and allowed a walk to Battle, and Hastings and the coast is a short drive. Signs at the dog walk simultaneously told to keep our mutts on leashes but also not to forget the dogs' balls. I interpreted this as meaning to put the dog on a leash once on the footpath since the landowners were insistent, but to keep it under close control while ball-chasing within the dog-walk. No-one told me off. Road noise has been mentioned in reviews, but we found it very quiet during our stay. Similarly, children seemed quite happy with their play facilities (climbing apparatus and a fenced ball area). On leaving, again at the main road, we needed to move off smartish due to traffic, but this did not dent our view that this is a great site.

Great site, wardens kept it immaculate. During the 6 nights we stayed, there were several days/evenings where older children were riding bikes at speed around the site coming very close to caravans, motorhomes & cars. First night we witnessed a boy coming off his bike at the front of our caravan missing the A frame by inches. On several occasions we had to tell them to get away from the caravan. Our friends who had a motor home had to report to wardens their concerns over same problems. We have grandchildren so are not child unfriendly at all but some of the speeds these kids were riding down slopes onto the pitch areas was very worrying and some of them ignored the rule of not riding around after dark on bikes, 3 nights they were riding around by our van at 9.20 pm
