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.

The best site we have been to

Beautiful caravan park, facilities were immaculate all times of day. Lovely areas and you can choose your own pitch. Fantastic pub The Squirrel Inn just up the road, few minutes drive. The staff were really helpful and we would return again happily, we have already recommended the site to friends. Lovely to see the rabbits about evenings and early morning.

Usual Club standards

We spent a pleasant few days here - site & facilities very clean, neat & tidy - as is the norm in my experience of Club sites. The big advantage of this site is that there are lots of little cul-de-sacs which take a few outfits - so very few serried rows of vans. Given lots of choice of pitches & were able to select a really quiet one - at the end of a cul-de-sac, (Less opportunity to people watch, however!) Doesnt feel a big site. Down sides - many pitches do have a slope - but it does say that in the book - so we were not surprised. There is also a lack of public transport - so we had to drive in to Battle and park the motorhome (Market square car park has no height barrier, & I think you can also park in the Abbey car park)

One of the best Club sites we have visited in 45 years of being members

A delightful site, wardens that surpassed the high standards of other sites, big big pitches, well layed out , while the site is big, the tiering and trees make it feel smaller, two toilet blocks that are modern, one at the top the other at the bottom of the site . If you are moderately fit there is a great walk to the nearest pub through woodland on a gravel track, this does great food and beer at moderate prices, it takes about 30/40 minutes to walk and the wardens can give you clear and easy directions, those who would find this difficult, the drive is about 12/15 minutes by a longer route . We tend to rarely revisit an area, but the country side and the outstanding site make it tempting to change our habit and revisit this site. The only downside we can see is that TV reception does need a bit of fine tuning, which we achieved after a few minutes, but the many upsides outweigh this.

Back for our 3rd time!

3 visits within a couple of months will indicate just how good this site is! Firstly all the staff were friendly, welcoming & couldn't do more to make our stay any better. Immaculate facilities, well laid out pitches, all in pristine condition. Nice walk to the local pub in Catsfield which takes about 40 minutes. Nearby Battle & Hastings might be worth a visit. All in all would highly recommend!
