Why stay here ...

Graciously set within a former garden which boasts magnificent trees, Battle Normanhurst Court Club Site, 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.

This East Sussex caravanning location 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.

Located close to the 1066 Trail, 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 site 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.

We look forward to welcoming you to the recently improved site, we have added new serviced pitches and increased the amount of hardstanding pitches. Essential work has been carried out to improve some of the roads around the site, a new style motorvan waste point has been added and playground equipment replaced. We have also preserved the historic retaining walls at the site of this former grand estate.

Needs pitch allocations when running at full capacity!

Battle Normanhurst Court Caravan Club Site
On arrival queuing as everyone it appeared checking in at 1 to 1.30. We were given the choice of several pitches however so was everyone else and basically everyone was driving round and round the same parts looking for the available pitches and then forgetting to return to the office to tell the wardens which one they had eventually decided to choose. It was like a supermarket sweep! and this was a Wednesday mid week!. The problem being the site was fully booked and obviously due to wet weather the grass pitches were out of commission sadly. The warden advised that members had chosen to opt for where they wanted to pitch, however this may be workable when sites are not at full capacity but when they are I feel that the pitches should be allocated on arrival. The site is a clean and set in a perfect location and apart from the front carpark type pitches the rest were all good therefore people do not need a choice at this site! the covid cleaning in regard to closure of toilets worked well with keeping one set open. Would visit again, hopefully not sooo busy!

Nice site

Battle Normanhurst Court Caravan Club Site
First bit of advice would be to walk around to find your pitch, there are several dead ends and some pitches are awkward to reach. Some are quite dark and have quite a slope but overall a nice site. We were in the Stable area which is secluded and quiet, there were overhanging trees that required careful parking of our motorhome to avoid squeaking branches hitting the roof, however these pitches are nice and a suntrap. The wardens were, as always, helpful and friendly.

Interesting site

Battle Normanhurst Court Caravan Club Site
Unfortunately we only had a one night stop here. It's a lovely site with old steps from the gardens still in situ. It's located just off the road into Battle but it was very quiet at night. It's not a road to walk along into Battle as there are no paths. However the 1066 footpath has easy access from the site and is an excellent path. We enjoyed walking along it. We visited Battle Abbey (don't use the NT parking in a motorhome! It was full and it's not easy to get around it. Instead we parked at the market place car park). This is well worth visiting. Two sets of facilites which were very clean and the wristband system seemed to be working well.

Difficult site to negotiate on arrival

Battle Normanhurst Court Caravan Club Site
We have just spent 2 weeks here. It is a very peaceful site and extremely well maintained. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Plenty of walks in the area. Several National Trust properties within easy travelling distance. The only down side is that it is a very difficult site to negotiate when trying to find a pitch with a caravan in tow. This was our first visit, it might be easier if we visit again.

Another Great Stay

Battle Normanhurst Court Caravan Club Site

Stayed again at Normanhurst (third visit), the site is maintained extremely well and has all facilities required. There are good walks from the site on the 1066 trail. I have to thank Kevin and Jill, the wardens, for refunding a night stay due to change of plans (an unwell grand child!), very unexpected and much appreciated.
