General

  • Peaceful farm close to Hastings, three miles from Battle Abbey
  • Five beaches and two castles within five miles
  • Modern amenities including a refurbished toilet and shower block

Battle Abbey may be only three miles away, but a peaceful time is pretty much guaranteed down on this East Sussex farm a quick drive from Hastings.

Whatever you insist on doing while on hol, disagreements should be discouraged by the sheer amount of attractions and activities within a few minutes of Buckhurst Campsite: smuggling adventures, two castles, the 1066 Story and five Sussex beaches are all within 10 miles; the site is among the walks, wildlife and Sussex scenery of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and – most happily – a vineyard is within walking distance. Absolutely nothing to wine about here, then…

Amenities at Buckhurst Campsite are plentiful and include a refurbished toilet and shower block with hot water, a washing-up area, hand basins and drinking water.

Please note

Guests must bring their own duvets, pillows, sheets and towels when staying in rental accommodation. You will not be allowed to stay if you do not bring these items.

The shower facilities are closed. Guests will need to use their own facilities.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Reception is closed due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak.

Toilet/shower facilities are available for tent pitches only. Touring units must be self-contained.

    Real shame we had things stolen whilst staying here, not what I would have ever expected from a campsite

From the manager...

Hello

So Sorry to hear something was stolen from you. Why was this never reported to us?

We have been running for 10 years now with no reports of stealing on our campsite before.

Many thanks

    Fantastic campsite, really enjoyed our stay here. The facilities are very modern and clean. Great value for money. Beautiful views and very peaceful. We loved that we could light a fire and purchase wood etc at the campsite. Unlimited pitch space was great for the weekend we camped, however I can see it being a problem at busier times in the year. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be returning! Thank you for having us!

Local attractions

Battlefield boffins have the history and highlights of 1066 and all that a couple of minutes’ drive away at Battle Abbey and Battlefield, site of the famous showdown between King Harold and William the Conqueror (there’s a clue there as to who won).

The heady fare here – including visitor centre with CGI re-enactment, events and the abbey itself – should entice all ages; if this fires up the kids’ historical imaginations, another 1066 experience is at nearby Hastings Castle (both recommended).

Reach Hastings Castle via one of the two cliff railways, West Hill and East Hill Lifts, and do remember to look down; East Hill Lifts is the steepest funicular railway in the country and has smashing views over Hastings Country Park where it ends up.

Kids castled out? Hastings has heaps of other family things to do: start off at the seafront’s Hastings Miniature Railway, which runs to old fishing village Rock-a-Nore where you can pick up some local seafood, dive into the exhibits of the Fishermen’s Village or take a boat out to land your own scaly specimens.

The famous Hastings Fishmarket, where most of the Hastings’s daily catch is sold after being landed at The Stade, is on Rock-a-nore Road, the town’s shingle beach which has been a maritime centre for over a millennia and which now has the biggest beachside fishing fleet in Europe. Check out the area’s tales at the Shipwreck Museum and at the Lifeboat Station and Visitors’ Centre, or take a boat trip out to find your own deep sea wreck.

If your history interests – or more likely, the kids’ – tend towards the more nefarious, a big local treasure is St Clements Caves back on West Hill, which tells the tales of the area’s smuggling exploits via Hairy Jack and the team.

At White Rock Gardens in the town, Clambers Play Centre has huge indoor and outdoor play areas for all ages and picnic tables, café and free parking; while retail therapy can be had at the Priory Meadow Shopping Centre near Hastings’s seafront.

Walks through 1066 Country and the High Wealds AONB are also easily accessible, as are Sussex beaches; a golf course at Battle and a golf school in Rother and stacks of other Sussex highlights such as sweet English vineyards, theme parks, watersports and cycling the Sussex Downs.
