Lord it up in peerless surroundings – and land a monster carp fit for a king – at the country estate caravan park of Coghurst Hall, set in a sloping valley near Hastings in East Sussex among acres of rolling woodland.
The first thing you’ll spot at this peaceful park is the huge fishing lake which is kept fully stocked for anglers to try their luck at (don’t forget your fishing licence). But the brand new clubhouse with licensed bar, Sky TV and free WiFi is also prominently placed for easy finding: there’s food dished up here too with dining packages available to save some pennies.
This is a Park Holidays ‘Relax and Explore’ site, so there are plenty of contemplative choices alongside sitting dreamily over your fishing rod: woodland walks and a nature trail, a heated indoor pool with spa bath and sauna, or lounging in the adults-only space The Library. Kids might prefer to try the more active options around: the Loopy Kids’ Club covers all sorts of shenanigans for ages 5-14 and there’s also a Gameszone amusement arcade.
Amenities-wise, Coghurst Hall also hits the spot: caravan accommodation across a range of tariffs all including gas, electric, linen and entertainment passes, and a mini mart, launderette and sales office to keep everything ticking conveniently along.
Open from 03/03/2017 to 03/11/2017

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Hither thee firstly to Hastings: the nearby town can keep you busy for days with its guided walks, geocaching, watersports and Europe’s biggest beachside fishing fleet to gawp enviously at. But most folk hither here as it’s part of battle country and tells the story of the unfortunate Harold at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. There are two main battle-filled attractions to amble around: 1066 Battle Abbey and Battlefield, and Hastings Castle and the 1066 Story, with a 1066 walking route to follow through the area too.
If smugglers are also your historical thing, you can get a ticket combining admission to A Smuggler’s Adventure at St Clements Caves with Hastings Castle and the 1066 Story; there are several smuggly sojourns along this part of Sussex coast, including the medieval town and Cinque Port of Rye which was once the home of the notorious Hawkhurst Gang.
Rye’s also the spot if you want to go fishing outside Coghurst Hall, with carp and deep-sea fishing available at the several local fisheries as well as the ten fishing lakes at Battle’s Wylands Angling Centre, open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Or you could decide that your fishy adventure should involve sampling the local produce instead – there are plenty of fish and seafood scoffing opportunities in and around Rye and the nearby seaside town of St Leonards-on-Sea.
Want to tee off rather than cast off? There’s a championship course at Beauport Park Golf Course nearby, a golf school at Rother and crazy golf at the Hastings Adventure Golf Course. There’s also a course in nearby Battle; stay in the area afterwards for a browse around the history attraction Yesterday’s World, with thousands of artefacts over five floors and a play area for the kids.
Small peers will find the area around Coghurst teeming with things to do and critters to see: Drusillas Zoo, the Port Lympe Wild Animal Safari Park and Paradise Park are all options for mini naturalists, or there’s letting the little monkeys swing from the trees at Go Ape!, getting eagle-eyed with the birds of prey at Knockhatch Adventure Park or tiptoeing through the underwater tunnel at the Blue Reef Aquarium in Hastings.
Grown-ups can fan and fortify themselves after a kids’ day out at Carr Taylor in Hastings, one of several local vineyards, or taking the kids educationally to one of East Sussex’s many historical attractions including castles and gardens galore, National Trust houses and more – finish the history tour off with a trip to the twelfth century Hawkhurst Gang haunt The Mermaid Inn to have a slap-up meal at its award-winning restaurant.
