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.

Our lovely break at Normanhurst Court

Just would like to thank the wardens again for their cheerful welcome and hard work in keeping everyone safe. Decided to take the chance of a 10 day break having been unable to use the caravan this year. We were so lucky with the weather and in getting a lovely open and sunny pitch. We used our own facilities in the van but I have no doubt the shower blocks were spotless as usual. We did however see several people going in without masks - please, please help to keep everyone safe and follow the rules. I have asthma but still wear a mask for the sake of others. On the site it felt like a little piece of heaven in a mad world! Thank you all.

Great location for visiting Battle and surrounding area

Found the site easily after following the Clubs directions. Secure covid check-in with instructions to drive round the site to find a suitable pitch. Please be aware that all roads lead to dead ends so the ability to reverse with a caravan is a must! Lots of trees meant that most pitches suffer from some shade which means less sun. We ended up on pitch 143 which would not have been our preferred choice. However, it turned out to be a pretty good spot as we got sunshine in the mornings and the van was cool in the evenings. This pitch is also away from the road so very quiet, if you don't mind other guests walking passed you as there is a path to the lower toilet block next to this pitch. Also, need to be careful when carrying pots etc to the wash rooms as there are a number of steps to tackle. All the facilities were clean and tidy although I did forget to report that there was no light outside the gents toilets which made finding the sanitised band difficult at night. No criticism of the Wardens but we had a pool of water in front of the van which increased in size during our stay. It looked unsightly and had algae growing in it. I understand this was caused by a drain leakage? Whatever the cause it needs to be addressed. I had reason to speak with the Wardens as I had a problem with the battery charger in my caravan and they were most helpful in loaning me a battery charger which helped me get through the last few days of our stay. Lovely site for visiting East Sussex.

Fantastic Welcome

Recently stayed at this site and had a terrific time. The staff were friendly, the site was spotless and the shower blocks were the cleanest I've ever seen. The site was full so not everyone had a pitch to their liking, but the staff went out of their way to accommodate everyone. Well done to the team!

Very Peaceful location

Lovely convenient place to stay for the Sussex coast area, beautifully wooded and in the how days in September, was ideal due to the shade we had. The "less good" bits... This is not a fault, bit a warning for future new visitors. The site does not have the usual "circular road" through the site. Mainly there is a single roadway that leads off into dead end areas. If these areas are full when you get into them, turning may be an issue. It's worth letting your co-pilot get out of the outfit and check that there is a free pitch before going into a cul de sac. It's a lovely wooded site, and with 27degree temperatures, it was fantastic having the caravan shaded Very convenient for Battle, Hastings and Eastbourne/Beachy Head, and will definitely revisit again

Great site, lots of nice pitches

Stayed here September 2020 for 12 nights, got grass pitch No 25 which I really recommend as is a bit more secluded. All site facilities were clean and tidy, wardens friendly and working hard. Lots to do in the area; Battle itself, Hastings, Beachy Head all worth a trip. Why do members all pile in at 1pm though????
