General

  • In a secluded valley between Battle and Hastings
  • Wildlife haven: spot badgers, foxes, deer, rabbits, owls and hedgehogs
  • Fishing lake, dog trail, coffee shop, adventure play and wardens 24hrs

As you might guess from the name, Brakes Coppice Park is a woodland site. But you’ll need to stop for a sec and have a look at the site pics to get a full sense of just how scenic and well maintained it is: expect tall trees, carpets of spring bluebells, excellent facilities and wildlife all around.

The park is in a secluded East Sussex valley between Battle and Hastings, deep in 1066 Country and with pitches surrounded by the owners’ private woodland. Look out for species of all sorts during your stay here: the woods are home to – among many others – foxes, rabbits, badgers and squirrels; woodpeckers, owls, buzzards and bats; mice, voles and hedgehogs; grass snakes and slow worms; dragonflies and damsonflies… and plants of all sorts including ferns, orchids, foxgloves and wood anemones.

A small coarse fishing lake is also on site (look out here for mallards and moorhens) and there’s a dog-friendly trail for further walks in the woods. Once you’ve exhausted all those options, amble over to the coffee shop for refreshments, then – if the kids have any energy left – over to the adventure play area (it’s suitable for all ages of kids, but parental assistance may be needed for the very young).

Pitching is in three fields: the biggest one with the amenities block (newly extended and renovated in 2019 ); the second with the fishing lake, and the third in a woodland area suitable for tents. All guests have access to the amenities block with separate disabled facilities, as well as free hot water available 24 hours a day, and acovered washing-up area. Wardens are on site at all times.

And when you’re venturing off site? If you’re not sure where to make for first, the well-stocked tourist information point should supply some tips: you could, for example, have days in Hastings, Battle, Rye, more Sussex seaside towns, nearby nature reserves, the High Wealds, Sussex vineyards, Sussex castles…

    Loved everything about the place. Very well set up. We stayed in Oak Lodge and it had everything we needed for a 2 night stay away. Very very comfortable bed and pillows the whole place was just very well equipped. The honesty shop on site is such an amazing idea! DVDs you can take back to your lodge, Ice creams, flapjacks, charcoal and firefighters this whole thing was just a perfect idea. Des and Jules were amazing and very very helpful. We will definitely be returning at some point. Cannot fault it.

  • Electric grass tent, trailer tent or campervan pitch (private bathroom amenities)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    From the moment we arrived we knew that Brakes Coppice Park was a perfect getaway spot. With a great location, well considered layout and a breadth of amenities, which were all in top condition and spotless.

    We stayed on a tent pitch with its own bathroom facilities, which added an element of luxury, but looking at the communal facilities, these wouldn't have been a hardship either.

    Everyone was helpful and friendly - we would definitely recommend and will be returning again.

    Everything! The most friendly staff (especially Harry - sorry Des) with a laid back attitude.
    We’re we’re on pitch 43 which was right next to the fresh water and right on the end of the row of pitches.
    Lovely dog walk through the woods past the field of sheep and then down to the fishing lake.
    There is a lovely ‘honesty’ shop stocking the basics if like us you for get to grab milk on the way!
    There are lodges, bell tents and pitches which have private bathroom and toilet, the standard facilities were excellent and clean with plenty of hot water.
    There is a fantastic kids park (did think about having a turn on the climbing frame once the sun went down lol)
    We will be back
