Why stay here ...

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

Tranquility in Beautiful Surroundings

Battle Normanhurst Court Club Campsite
Set in the grounds of an old Manor House, May is stunning with the colourful Rhododendrons. Facilities as usual for CMC spotless, modern & everything you could need. Wardens so friendly & knowledgeable. Great location for Rye Hastings Battle & a 40min drive to Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway, well worth a visit, if you love trains. Mile & ½ walk Through the estate to the local pub. Such a lovely quiet site, thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days here.

Disappointing Pitch

Battle Normanhurst Court Club Campsite
This is a beautiful site with mature trees and stunning rhododendrons. The facilities were up to the usual club standards. We had booked a serviced pitch and there was only pitch 106 available when we arrived. The pitch was very narrow - we parked with the back of the van in line with the peg. The car was on the left and we were unable to open the car doors without hitting the spiky bush next to the edge of the peg. I would suggest that either the bushes are removed which would be a shame, or the peg is moved to the right. Serviced pitches are not a cheap option so it was a little disappointing. .

Overall, a great experience!

Battle Normanhurst Court Club Campsite
We had an extended visit and thoroughly enjoyed the area. The site itself was very good, with just a few niggles: token operated laundry, with limited opportunity to get tokens due to restricted shop hours. Parking near bottom of site severely restricted wi-fi and aerial and be prepared for some mean slopes! However, nothing could diminish the lovely site or atmosphere. The facilities were always very clean and in great order.

Simply Perfect

Battle Normanhurst Court Club Campsite
I think the point of CAMC sites is to be reasonably “no frills”, but this site is simple done perfectly - the grounds are well looked after, and the toilet facilities are modern and well maintained. Warden Julie was helpful and welcoming. Would return here without question.
