Why stay here ...

A stay at Fairlight Wood Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Peaceful and calm

Fairlight Wood Club Campsite
What a lovely, quiet and well maintained site. Perfect for us, now we are not required to take holidays in school holiday time! I’m not sure that it is a suitable site for children, as there are no play areas. However, it would be wonderful for them to wander through the woods, not on their own as they lead to roads, if they are nature lovers. The Two Sawyers pub is just a short walk through the woods, via well marked track, but be careful of slipping if it has rained recently. All in all we had a very restful visit.

Peaceful birdsong

Fairlight Wood Club Campsite
This is a lovely site. Surrounded by woods, bluebells, birdsong and peace. We were greeted by the warden who was SO kind and friendly we felt immediately safe and welcome. Just a short wander through the woods and you’re at the Two Sawyers pub and a few miles down the road to Pett level beach. Great cream tea options at the Tic Tockery ( just down the road). Clean quiet shower block. We couldn’t get reception on the telly, probably due to the trees. We will come again. Highly recommend.

Beautiful woodland break

Fairlight Wood Club Campsite
Thank you Cheryl and Dean for a wonderfully peaceful break on your very well managed site. The woodland setting full of the scent and colour of bluebells and wood anemones is a rare treat. Cheryl gave us a lovely welcome and Dean was always smiling as he quietly worked around the site (no noisy buggies flying up and down here!). It was truly relaxing and we hope to return one day.

Lovely little site

Fairlight Wood Club Campsite
Lovely peaceful site set in beautiful woodlands with plenty of pathways to explore.The site facilities are somewhat dated but immaculately clean as was the entire site. The wardens, Dean and Cheryl were fantastic, we were greeted with the warmest welcome, and nothing was to much trouble, a real asset to the club and made our stay all the better.

Peaceful site

Fairlight Wood Club Campsite
Our first visit to this lovely small clean site.We had three nights and the weather was good for walking and cycling .The managers are very helpful and friendly. Great location, plenty of walks straight from site. We were given very helpful walking route info from the site managers . We did have a nice bike ride down to Pett along to Winchelsea and through Icklesham there is a nice pub called Robin Hood which is at the top of Watermill lane .Two sawyers pub is nice and a short walk from site , we were able to pick up a news paper from the local butchers which is a short walk from site too. Old Hastings was lovely and Hastings country park has some great walking trails.We did the Three Glens. We have recommended this site to our Motorhome friends and we will definitely come back.
