Why stay here ...

A stay at Fairlight Wood Club Site is almost like taking a soothing break in a large and lovely garden. This is a small and intimate caravan park set in flower rich woodland and with many quaint footpaths to wander along. The area is rich in historic value - the nearby seaside town of Hastings was William the Conqueror's base camp in 1066 and it was here he chose to build his famous castle following the historic victory at Battle.

Fairlight Wood Club Site offers a perfect retreat for nature lovers - its surrounding woodlands are listed as a Biodiversity area so are ideal for spotting wildlife. It's also in an ideal location for dog walking. The nearby Old Hastings is well worth the visit for its quiet charm - here you can watch the fisherman bringing home their daily catch, eat some of the freshest fish and chips you've ever tasted and then walk the meal off with a leisurely stroll along streets that still hold the atmosphere of days gone by. Choosing a caravan holiday in East Sussex also puts you within a short distance from the scenic East Cliffs, and for walkers who enjoy a bit of a challenge, it connects with a lovely 5 mile Country Park walk which will lead you through a wealth of natural treats such as wooded valleys and secluded beaches. Look out for The Big White House in nearby Pett Level which was featured in the Channel Four series, Grand Designs.

Great site for peace and dogs!

Fairlight Wood Caravan Club Site
A smallish site nestled in woodland. Good facilities as you would expect from CAMC. An excellent site for dog walking as there are woodland walks directly from the site. Good for visiting Hastings, Battle, and Rye.

Our favourite site of the year

Fairlight Wood Caravan Club Site
What a lovely site! And such nice wardens too. We were incredibly lucky and had one of the 'central' hardstanding pitches with plenty of grass to the rear and which got as much sun as possible for this time of year. Probably the best pitch we have had in a long time. Some of the pitches under the trees at the 'bottom' end of the site lacked any sun but would probably be fine in the summer. The site is spotless and kept so nice. Wardens are friendly, helpful and full of information - a great welcome and a wave when we passed by during our week's stay. We were visiting family in Hastings, but thoroughly enjoyed our time at the site. Very slightly marred by a rather inconsiderate and noisy group of friends who forgot awnings are not soundproof! Perfect for our dogs - the site owns the attached woods and there is Guestling wood absolutely opposite the entrance and a lovely place for the dogs to run. And 5 minutes drive away is dog friendly Pett Level beach. The site has a dog wash which is great for those of us with mud/sea and salt loving dogs. I'd give them 5 out of 5 paws for dog friendliness. Reception has a good supply of essentials and the vital book exchange and there is an excellent information room. You will gather we loved the site. It's an easy drive into Hastings and don't forget Hastings has it's own fishing fleet and fish is sold in the little beachside shacks straight off the boats (fresh mackeral on the BBQ - oh bliss). We love Hastings for it's vibrancy, quirkiness and laid back vibe (visit the old town for independent shops and as much tea, coffee and cake as you can eat). But we visited Dungeness - Derek Jarman's shingle garden and fish and chips at the Britannia Inn, the beautiful church in Winchelsea and we paddled in the sea at Pett Level. We gave the rather over touristy Rye a miss. The sun largely shone, we ate a lot of cake, fish and chips and ice cream. And we had a wonderful time. Thank you lovely wardens - Fairlight may be our favourite site of the year - or actually of all time. See you next year.

Our favourite site to visit

Fairlight Wood Caravan Club Site
Neil and Caroline and their warmth, sense of humour and the efficient and helpful service and a high standard of upkeep on this site, make it the most wonderful place to stay. We managed to book a spontaneous day here as there had been a cancellation and Caroline contacted us immediately. We are relatively new camper van owners but have visited here on 6 occasions. Apart from the tranquil setting and the beautiful surrounding area, the 2 excellent pubs within walking ( one within staggering!) distance and other amenities in Pett, make it a great place to explore for a short or longer break. Thank you and we can’t wait to return.

Had the best week

Fairlight Wood Caravan Club Site
On arrival met by the loveliest of wardens , nothing was too much trouble. Picked a great pitch shade in mornings sun in afternoon/evening. Lovely clean facilities. Great dog walk access from site and Guesling wood opposite site. Six min walk to two sawyers pubs through woods, had a lovely meal and great service. Loved Hastings country park for the views and cliff top walks. Looking forward to returning soon Alec Nic Izzy and Smudge
