General

  • Two miles from the beach at Bexhill-on-Sea
  • Family-friendly site with indoor and outdoor play areas
  • Within easy reach of the historic sites of 1066 Country

Ditch the wheels and settle down for a Sussex seaside and heritage stay at award-winning and colourful Chestnut Meadow Camping & Caravan Park, on the outskirts of the seaside town of Bexhill-on-Sea. A bus stop is right in front of the site so you can get around without having to drive: the beach is a couple of miles away.

Chestnut Meadow is in the historic part of green and pleasant England known as 1066 Country, so called after the 11th-century Battle of Hastings and the introduction of Norman rule into the land (if these facts make the kids yawn, they'll probably be gorily interested instead in how Harold died). Battle Abbey, Herstmonceux Castle and Bodiam Castle are nearby to explore the area's history, all reachable via local cycle routes.

A family-friendly site, Chestnut Meadow has a playground, a games hall, plenty of room to play, and a modern, heated shower block including a parent and baby washroom. There's also free wifi, a small shop and a launderette.

A range of eco-friendly initiatives have been introduced on site, including recycling points, wildlife areas and the use of recycled materials where possible.

  • Liked: 

    Friendly welcome from the site managers, sensible rules, clean facilities, free wifi was invaluable and other campers were helpful when we had problems

    Disliked: 

    Difficult to turn in and out of entrance, a bit narrow and saw other caravanners having problems. We would recommend approaching from the north with a caravan so that it is easier to get the caravan in.
