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.

Brilliant

Battle Normanhurst Court Caravan Club Site
Been to this site more times than i care to remember over 20 years. Always a peaceful place during the week and during term time. Not that its noisy all other times, but kids will be kids and parents don't care as long as out of site, out of mind (my view, yes). Anyway the current wardens have made the site very clean and tidy. The shrubs that surround the site and pitch's are trimmed to give the look of a smart clean site. Nice touch with the surrounding shrubs being stepped when trimmed giving depth - lovely. Very very friendly wardens. I've noticed a negative review recently about closed shower cubicles. Well when the site is fairly empty as it has been over the last couple of weeks (cancelations over fuel issues and only 14 on site up to week ending 08/10, i was there so i know) then as there are 2 toilet blocks with 5/6 showers in each, why have them all for use and have the wardens clean them each day. did they have to queue, bet not as they didn't say as much. I agree with closing some, why not. Most people use there own anyway, so what's the issue.

During our stay last week toilets and Shower cubicles were partially shut down and locked up. Not impressed especially in the current climate.

Keep your map handy

Battle Normanhurst Court Caravan Club Site
It seems to be the norm that you need to walk around with your site map. The site has many pitches in dead end locations and it makes it difficult for caravans to turn around. Whilst it is suggested to park up and walk to view a pitch, this can create a traffic queue behind you. The site is peaceful and in a good location for visiting, Rye, Eastbourne, Hastings and Bexhill on Sea. Pitches all vary in size, some quite small. The facilities were very well managed and clean.

Worth a visit

Battle Normanhurst Court Caravan Club Site
Firstly, beware of the railiway level crossing if driving to the site from the north on the A2100 (just after the A21 junction - take it slowly because there's a deceptive dip in the road. The road from Battle to the site is also a bit bumpy in places. The site is different to others we've visited as it seems sub-divided into smaller sections/cul-de-sacs - this gives a nice ambience but makes caravan manouvres more tricky on arrival.its worth knowing where you can/want to pitch before towing your caravan to it. The pitches seem a good size and those in our section were reasonably spaced and flat. There are a lot of trees/bushes so dependent on where you pitch, you may be in an open space or one with quite a bit of tree cover. The facilities we used were good and we never had to wait for loos/showers. Wifi coverage is poor though Our pitch was very quiet although this can always be affected by others pitched nearby The wardens were friendly and helpful and worked hard to keep the site and facilities in good shape Rye and Birling Gap are worth a visit. The seafronts at Bexhill and Eastbourne are nice too, Most of Hastings sadly has a run-down feel. There's a nice 1.25 mile walk into Catsfield although not much in the village apart from a decent pub.
