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.

Lovely Campsite

Fairlight Wood Caravan Club Site
Had a delightful stay at Fairlight Wood. It was so peaceful. Everything was pristine. Only downside was that we were in the middle of the site under trees so didnt get the sun. I would ask for a pitch that got the sun if i were to return. Highly recommend.

Fantastic Site

Fairlight Wood Caravan Club Site
We have stayed on this site 4 times, every visit has been fantastic. The site is very well kept and the wardens are very friendly and the facilities are kept spotlessly clean. It is a very peaceful and quiet site which is perfect for us. We will certainly be back.

Peaceful and Quiet

Fairlight Wood Caravan Club Site
A very peaceful and quiet little site. We were a bit concerned when we read about the 2 mile drive along narrow roads to get there but then realised that's only if you don't follow the directions! Fortunately we did and so there was only about 1/2 mile along a narrow road to the entrance. We were warmly welcomed by Caroline - and she also came out to say goodbye to us. What a great warden! We found Hastings wasn't motorhome friendly at all. The car parks - including Hastings Country Park - all had height barriers. Apparently there's parking towards Bexhill on the seafront but we didn't find that. We walked through the woods to the village and across fields to the shingle beach at Pett Level. A lovely walk but quite steep coming back. Apart from the beach there wasn't much there, so we sat on the beach for a while then walked back stopping at the Royal Oak for a well deserved drink in the garden! The facilities were clean and the wristband system seemed to be working well.

Perfect Site

Fairlight Wood Caravan Club Site
Just returned from a ten night stay at this exceptional site. Our pitch was separated by hedgerow and backed by the woods so plenty of birdsong to enjoy. This is a small peaceful site with lots of walks to enjoy especially the one through the woods to the local pub. Unfortunately the peace was blighted on occasions by some inconsiderate dog owners who allowed their pets to yap away every time someone passed which I suppose is not the fault of the dog but the owners. The site is a credit to the wardens who keep the site at its best and are extremely friendly and helpful. Due to COVID restrictions the toilet and shower block are restricted but when we did take use of them there was never any queue so I guess most are using their own facilities. There is a beach nearby but for the less active it would be best to drive as there is a very steep hill to negotiate on the way back! Take the coast road to the small town of Rye which is very quaint with cobbled streets and a fine church to explore. Hastings is just a short drive and like many seaside resorts it looked a little tired but we found Bexhill on Sea a few more miles past Hastings to be a much better resort with the promenade being kept clean and inviting. All in all our stay at Fairlight was really enjoyable and we hope to return again in the future.

Don't follow sat nav.

Fairlight Wood Caravan Club Site
Very peaceful site up to the the usual club standard. Neil and Caroline are excellent hosts. Pub through the woods serves great food. After being stuck in traffic for 2 hours, without thinking I followed the sat nav. What a hairaising white knuckle ride for about 3 miles (seemed like 30). Both mirrors touching trees, luckly only met 3 cars and all reversed for me to get through. Motto: Believe the book.
