On site

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 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 children, 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...

    Excellent location between Battle and Hastings hidden in a private woodland including a fishing pond. Toilets and showers were spotlessly clean and modern. Honesty shop was great for a ice cold drinks after a hot day. Pitch was large with enough room for the car and seating area. Owners were friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend.

    So quiet and the surrounding areas where beautiful. Easy walk to local train station and other areas. Lodge was lovely and just what we needed. The kids loved the play area and we had no problem with letting them do their own thing as the camp feels very safe. Would definitely go back in the future.
