Wylands Angling Centre: Lake at dusk

General

  • Stays at a first-rate angling centre five minutes' drive from Battle
  • A 15-minute drive to Bexhill-on-Sea; 20 minutes to Hastings
  • Nine fishing lakes, tackle shop and snack bar on site

With nine lakes to pick from, it’s no surprise that stays on site at Wylands Angling Centre are particularly fine options for keen anglers. But that’s not all this East Sussex site has going for it: this is 1066 country, with historic Battle about a five-minute drive away, and the south coast about 20 minutes away.

All this means that Wylands is an equally fine option for the sort of holiday that mixes up fishing time and other activities (or provides alternative outings for different strands of a family group…). Those who aren’t into fishing, or want a break from the water, might like to have a wander around Hastings, hit the beach in Bexhill-on-Sea or find walking trails in the surrounding High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (or even in the 154 acres of woodland around the site).

And for those looking to get stuck into the fishing? Well, there’s plenty on site – this is a place that’s earned itself a reputation as one of the best angling centres in all the land. The nine lakes (including a catfish lake) cater for specialist, match and pleasure anglers, and there’s also a tackle shop for kit and friendly advice, along with a snack bar to ensure you won’t go hungry. (Please note fishing is not included and must be booked separately.)

Had a good day by the lake? Take yourself off to the local pub, a mile away, to celebrate over a drink and dinner – or sort supplies at the supermarket in Battle and spend the evening tending your barbecue back on site.

A beautiful site with flat pitches, great staff and modern facilities.11/10/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The environment was beautiful and well kept. Toilets were very clean and were dedicated to their own attractive log cabin, located conveniently right beside the pitching fields. Visitors were also allowed up until 7:00PM so we were able to enjoy the company of others during the day. Quiet and peaceful place with very friendly and helpful staff. Later this month they hope to open a very promising looking farm shop to further improve the experience, which we look forward to and will certainly come back for. Additionally they will also have a on-site café in the near future, which will certainly solidify their reputation as one of the best angling/camping centres in the UK. Felt right at home.

    The campsite is so Peaceful and set in a beautiful location. All the staff are friendly and helpful and do a great job keeping the site looking clean and tidy. The ladies in the cafe serve great food cooked to order and always with a smile. The toilets are regularly cleaned and the showers are nice and hot and the electric hook up is one of the best we have had. The kids and adults have a great time playing, riding bikes and running round in the open space and love a bit of fishing. We have been many times with friends since discovering this little gem earlier this year, it's excellent value for money and we look forward to many more trips next year with the addition of a new farm shop and upgraded cafe. Great work everyone at Wylands and thank you for a great summer. See you next year!

Local attractions

Before you hasten over to Hastings (20 minutes’ drive), you might want to figure out your plan of action, because there’s a lot of activities to choose from. A beach day? Up the cliff railway for views over the Old Town? Or peering at the fish in the aquarium?

Castles and other old places are hanging around this area too, including the 14th-century Bodiam Castle (20 minutes), the 300-acre, 15th-century Herstmonceux Castle (15 minutes) and the site of the 1066 Battle of Hastings (five minutes), now an English heritage site.

To add some more historic places into the mix, there’s the Benedictine Battle Abbey (five minutes) or the grand Great Dixter House & Gardens (25 minutes). And over in Bexhill-on-Sea (15 minutes), the beach is an added benefit on top of museums and the De La Warr Pavilion, where there are shows and exhibitions in a Modernist building.

To wash it all down, Carr Taylor Wines (15 minutes) runs vineyard tours. Or, there are peaceful, wildlife-packed wanders around the Powdermill Wood Nature Reserve (15 minutes’ walk) that will help to wind things down nicely.

Must see

  • 1066 Battle Abbey and Battlefield (1.5 miles)
  • Hastings Castle and 1066 Story (6.0 miles)
  • A Smugglers Adventure at St Clements Caves (6.1 miles)
