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.

Secluded, wooded and very well run

A marvellous, small, private site, with all the right facilities (and no more). Helpful and professional staff, showers free, large and toasty hot. Our dogs loved it - kept popping out the 'van for a sniff around the woods - even though the weather was stormy and very wet. The hardstanding pitches are neat, but private. 10 mins walk to the pub 'The Two Sawyers' excellent food & beer & chatty locals - it was buzzing on both the Friday & Sat nights. Thanks for the great stay and we will return!

Fabulous, again!

Just back from our third visit to the site this year, and it was as always great. The club facilities first class as always. What makes this site, apart from the brilliant location is John and Susan the management team, who are so welcoming, and just downright helpful, just the two of them running the small site, and whats even better, they're back next year, and so are we. Thanks to you both.

Peace, perfect peace

This was our second visit this year as we loved it so much the first time. The site is small but perfectly formed. We were very fortunate to have picked the most glorious September weekend. Our main activity at weekends is walking in the morning and relaxing in the afternoon with a bike ride or two thrown in. The site is the starting point for many excellent walks that encompass, woods, fields and the coast. Lovely biking although some seriously challenging hills for the less fit. The peace and quiet is a joy. If you want somewhere to get away from it all and be able to relax completely then I would highly recommend it. The access road is narrow as mentioned so attending to the instructions in the handbook is essential.

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.
