Why stay here ...

Secure your 2024 or 2025 holiday with only a £5 deposit* when you book by 30 September 2024!

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.

Peace and quiet on a chilled out site

Lovely wardens, big pitches, tuck away in the woods. Facilities immaculate! We stayed an extra night. Handy for Rye and Dungeness. Quite tight access and google maps does its best to route you down narrow lanes!

Dog paradise

Fairlight Wood Club Campsite
This was our first motorhome outing with 4 small dogs. Boy, did we hit the jackpot with this site. It’s small and very peaceful with excellent, clean and tidy facilities. It’s not great for families as there is not much to do if you have little ones. If, however, you have dogs, you couldn’t ask for more. The site is surrounded by woodland that is lovely for an early morning walk with the dogs. A short 5 minute walk through this wood you’ll find The Two Sawyers pub. A delightful dog friendly pub with a lovely garden. However, for us and our dogs, the piece de resistance was Guestling Wood. Just across the site entrance over a small lane is an entrance to 110 acres of doggy heaven! The site wardens were fantastic and when we asked if we could stay a further night, they made sure we stayed on the same pitch. It should also be noted that a lot of guests were trying to book extra nights. I think that says it all. Highly recommend!

A peace 😉 of perfection

Fairlight Wood Club Campsite
This club site is an absolute gem which we have now been to several times and will certainly do so in the future. It is extremely peaceful, partly because with little for small people to do on site, it’s not the best site for families and partly because of its location down a small lane away from main roads. There is very little plane noise either. Our visit this time was due to an urgent need to de-stress and, being lucky with the weather, Fairlight exactly hit the spot. It’s small and perfectly formed with very nice wardens. The setting is lovely, surrounded by trees with grass between all pitches and the birdsong is beautiful. Come in bluebell time and you’ll be stunned! The walks are endless and very varied - woods, fields, seashore - with stupendous views from the tops of hills. Plus, with the help of an OS map, they are generally very well signed with stiles and gates in good condition. Be aware if you have a dog that many of the fields are full of sheep. As one reviewer also commented there are some fairly serious hills to climb/pedal up but it’s always worth the effort. We live only an hour away so don’t tend to go out and visit places we already know but Rye and Winchelsea are lovely and Hastings is good fun. We left after 4 nights refreshed and restored (although by the time our van had banged and crunched home over the appalling East Sussex potholes we were somewhat shaken rather than stirred!!)

Perfect Peace....

Fairlight Wood Club Campsite
I honestly don't know why we had never thought to visit this site before. From arriving and throughout, the site managers (sorry, forgotten their names!) couldn't have been more helpful, with advice and guidance on places to go and best routes, and their recommendation for the local butcher saw us with half a freezer full of sausages! The site itself was immaculate but not too show homey, ie natural and relaxing. All pitches were a really good size and no matter where you were, your outlook was the woods. You can walk or ride through the woods direct from the site and we loved the 'Hansel & Gretel' idea of a touch of white paint on certain trees that leads to the local pub, the Two Sawyers, really good food and atmosphere there. I would say the only thing to be aware of, which is nothing to do with the site itself, is that there are some massive hills around if cycling, that Google state as 'moderate' but not too sure in whose language that is! Also, in future I would avoid arriving or leaving on a Sunday as the lane is quite narrow and the woodlands are very popular with people arriving in cars so was a bit hairy trying to make a dash for it when leaving! Would definitely visit here again.

Great Stay , Great Wardens .

Fairlight Wood Club Campsite
We booked 5 night , 8th to 13th august and took the grandchildren with us for the first time for 2 nights not knowing if they would like staying in the caravan . Even though there is no play area there was lots to do in the woods , they loved it . Also crazy golf and the sea life centre in Hastings There is also at fairlight a great country park with a very nice café . The grandchildren loved it so much they asked to stay an extra night luckily I booked 3 nights just in case . I would like to give a big thank you to Cheryl and Dean for being a great help . We had a problem with the TV socket on the post and Dean came over straight away , also Many thanks to you Cheryl for sorting out an extra night stay even though it was after 5 pm . Once again Many Thanks to you both . David & Pauline
