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. The caravan site 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.

Hidden gem.

First time here after being on IoW for nearly a week. Super secluded site with great wardens, lacking only a full-width motorhome waste grate. The Two Sawyers, very dog friendly pub with great food and service is a short walk away but remember to take torches once it gets dark. Bus into Hastings was an adventure and old Hastings was fascinating with some of the oldest buildings in the country. Fresh seafood from the Stade highly recommended. We lost a wheel retaining nut on our dog trailer the day before arriving but the warden was able to not only find a correctly sized replacement but the correct nylock type to boot - definitely above and beyond. Thanks very much. Definitely on our "will return" list.

Lovely, very peaceful site with a great pub a few minutes walk through the woods

Our second visit, taking friends with us this time. The site is very quiet and we immediately relaxed after a busy week. Wardens are friendly and helpful and facilities very clean, although could do with a couple more washing-up sinks. Great walks through the woods and along the coast at Pett Level and around Fairlight. The Two Sawyers pub, a few minutes walk through the woods, has a friendly atmosphere and serves good food. We will definitely be back soon.

Great little site

Our second visit to Fairlight Wood and we were blessed with beautiful weather, our pitch no 35 was level and spacious although some others appeared smaller. Friendly welcome from unobtrusive wardens , small selection of essentials and ice cream available in reception. Facilities were maintained in immaculate condition and although site was full never had to queue. Great walks from site into Guestling woods and short stroll to Two Sawyers pub which is friendly and serves excellent food. A peaceful site with total silence at night. We visited Rye a lovely historical town with independant shops and lots of cafes and restaurants and Pett beach, large areas of which are dog friendly and our pooch enjoyed a dip in the sea to cool off, note there is no dog walk on site but as site is surrounded by woods, it was not a problem to us. Negatives, bin area was overflowing probably because site was full and they only have dustbins not dumpsters. Access road to site is very narrow with only a few passing places so dont try and arrive early ! Very much enjoyed our stay and will definately return a very good CAMC site.

Lovely helpful staff

I turned up here thinking I had booked for a few days as I had viewed the site on line. When I arrived the staff couldn’t find my reservation as I didn’t have one. They checked and found I was booked on to a different site. They showed me on a map where ‘my ‘ site was and told me it was about 3 hours drive they also showed me where I was supposed to be visiting on my way home - again 3 hours drive. They then suggested I stayed the night with them as they had space and they rang the other site to explain. The site was lovely and quiet and well maintained- a little too far off the beaten track for my liking though I did walk to the local pub through the woods, again rather quiet. Ideal location if you want to do a lot of walking or cycling or just relaxing.

Charming Site

Our first time at a Caravan Club site with our smaller camper van. It was perfect for us. Very peaceful and the facilities were absolutely immaculate. Lovely walking in the woods. The Two Sawyers pub was also enjoyed. Would definitely recommend and am sure we will be back.
