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.

Exquisite little site

Stayed for 3 nights, warm, safe welcome from the warden. Small chilled site but lots to do in the area, walking, cycling, visiting Hastings, Rye. Good for dogs. Two Sawyer's Pub is lovely and covid safe for food and drink excellent. Absolutely loved it.

A haven of calm.

We have just spent seven nights at this beautiful site as part of our 3 1/2 week tour of South East England. It was our second visit, the previous one being several years ago and we were delighted to find that it had lost none of its charm. We were fortunate to get one of the pitches benefitting from the sun all day; some do not and some are in the shadow of the trees all day. We received a warm, though Corvid restricted, welcome from the wardens who were friendly and cheerful throughout our stay. We relied entirely on our own facilities so are unable to comment on the toilet/shower block but Corvid restrictions were in evidence both there and at the service points which we did use. One novel feature was that the wardens serviced these points using a hand cart rather than the normal tractor, further preserving the peace and quiet. As other have reported the location is ideal for many walking and visiting trips throughout the area and has the bonus of a short walk through the woods to the nearby ‘Two Sawyers’ pub in Pett village which is not to be missed! This site is a definite on our list to revisit when next we are in the area.

Our first outing as caravaners

What a lovely place. Staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. Gave us directions to the local drinking venue which was lovely, Two sawyers. Great food and a max 10 minute walk. Gave us advice on where to park in fairlight to walk into hastings. Toilet facilities were spotless, showers nice and hot. Covid procedure was spot on. Well done. Would most definitely recommend.

Lovely and peaceful with spacious pitches

Lovely and peaceful with spacious pitches, good pitch no. wrist band system for covid-19 precautions. Great, efficient and friendly staff. Pretty lit up at night, which is fine but maybe unnecessary. Very clean respected facilities. Basic shop onsite with essentials and gas, then fish mongers/butchers/green grocers in Pett. Lovely walks 2.5 miles across wood and fields to beach, 0.5 miles through woods to Two Sawyers pub; 7.5 mike Walker from Pett Level round military canal to Winchelsea and back along beach levees added to 2.5 mile each to Pett Level. Nice cafes at Pett and Winchelsea. More to sea. Great shingle beaches.

A real gem of a site

This is a small quiet site, but set in a picturesque location, just right for walking in the woods, or on nearby Winchelsea beach or in Hastings, this site is ideal for those looking for peace and quiet. The husband and wife wardens on site in 2020 were excellent, and could not do more to make all the holidaymakers feel safe and secure in these covid related times. They both made a real effort to ensure that those staying on site were well looked after. Could not ask for more!
