East Sussex is a great family holiday destination. When you buy a caravan at one of the holiday parks in the area, you’ll get the chance to really explore the beaches and towns.
Owning caravans in a holiday area is like having a second home, a place where you can go wherever you want. You’ll become a part of the community and get to learn about all the places that the locals go to, as well as the tourist destinations.
The South Downs National Park, Britain’s newest National Park, offers holiday home owners the chance to get lost in over 70 miles’ worth of unspoiled East Sussex countryside. The Park is crammed with areas of natural beauty, including the Seven Sisters (Sussex’s famous seaside cliffs); four rivers (the Arun; the Adur; the Ouse; and the Cuckmere); and the Long Man of Wilmington – an ancient landscape carving etched in chalk.
When you buy a caravan in the area, the South Downs will become a part of your life – a playground for you and the kids to walk in, to cycle in, to horse ride and even paraglide in. For the historically minded, there are plenty of Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age sites of interest in the Park.
Owning caravans in and around East Sussex gives you plenty of opportunity to join in the thriving local nightlife of the area. From pubs and clubs, which provide live music pretty much seven nights per week; to stage shows, operas and plays, there’s something for every family and every taste. Sussex’s top towns, Hastings, Beachy Head and Brighton, can provide multiple entertainment options every night.
Seasonal and festive events in Sussex have a distinct pageant feel to them. Watch an awe inspiring re enactment of the Battle of Hastings before visiting the museums dedicated to the event.
Buy a caravan in East Sussex and you will have put yourself in the ideal location for some great sporting action too. Goodwood provides racing of both the four legged and four wheeled varieties – and with the Olympics only a year away there will soon be plenty of other sporting events taking places in the vicinity.
The literary minded, meanwhile, can enjoy the fact that their caravans put them near to some of the most lauded literary homes in the United Kingdom. A holiday home sited in a holiday park near Hastings is only a stone’s throw from the houses of Virginia Woolf and Rudyard Kipling. Art galleries abound in East Sussex too, with the collection at Pallant House reputed to rival even the selections of modern art you can see in the capital.
Kids will love the Observatory Science Centre, with its fascinating hands on displays that can teach inquiring minds all about the wonders of an expanding universe. And the castle enthusiast will be spoilt for choice, with some of Britain’s finest (including the wonderful Bodiam Castle) just waiting to be discovered.
