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.

Glad to be back

We are so glad to be back out in our van and also that we chose Fairlight Wood for our first trip once the Covid restrictions were eased. We have to say a huge thank you to the wardens who have obviously worked really hard to get everything ready and to book people in day one. The site is well known for being quiet and peaceful and an ideal place for dogs and walkers alike. It didn’t disappoint. It was lovely to be greeted with cheerful warm smiles, and throughout our stay whenever we saw the wardens they went out of their way to say hi and check on how everyone was doing in this new environment despite the fact they clearly had a much bigger cleaning workload. A great deal of thought has clearly gone into making the site operate in a way that ensures our safety as well as possible which was really good to see. It was our new Labradors first outing in our van and he had a wonderful time as did our other two with lovely walks and woods to enjoy. However, what really made our visit this time was the welcome and hard work of the wardens. We were always planning to visit again as we love the area and the warmth and friendliness of the onsite team so we’d like to thank them for all their hard work.

Super little site

Just returned from a lovely three night stay at Fairlight during very trying times due to the National outbreak of Coronavirus. Beautiful and peaceful location with very welcoming and friendly staff. Hygiene levels were really excellent, with extra cleaning routines put in place at least four times a day and also social distancing being observed all over the site including at check in. Can’t thank the team enough for their hard work and we will be sure to visit again when life returns to normal.

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.
