Norman's bay is approached via a narrow private road through a run down strip of poor quality housing with a slightly creepy atmosphere, a bit like Dungeness, so it's quite a relief to find a well kept campsite at journey's end. We booked in, got a code for the barrier and were shown to our pitch: 'Anywhere on this bit. You need to be 20 feet from the next unit. EHU's over there. You're nice and close to the loos. ' I thought we would be troubled by passing traffic as we were all but blocking the access to our area, but either nobody moved much or they were coming and going some other way. It was a good pitch.

It's very flat and rather exposed, with many caravans and motorhomes packed in. The ground is good and resembles a well mown field rather than a manicured lawn. The facilities are excellent - bright, clean, warm and user friendly. The showers are push button, but you get a good half minute per press. I'm new to C&CC sites so maybe that's normal. There's an older block down by the caravan storage area which was also more than satisfactory. The pot wash is under cover and features press taps which run for 10 - 15 seconds per press - very handy for rinsing. All the facilities shut between 11am and noon for cleaning, coinciding irritatingly with chucking off site time on your last day. Waste and recycling is in big, stinky hoppers over by the site entrance and a bit of a schlep: convenient for the management rather than the campers.

There's a small, unremarkable play area at the top of the site and a 'recreation room' at the other end with a pool table (£1 a game) and a table tennis table. You can purchase awful bat and ball sets for a fiver at the site shop. We had the room to ourselves and had quite a blast for half an hour.

The local area has an interesting history and is full of things to see and do. The beach is usable if a bit bleak, but very conveniently right over the road. All the supermarkets can be found in Eastbourne, but the gigantic Asda is probably the most convenient.

What a lovely surprise arriving at Normans bay.

We arrived at 1 O'Clock so it was busy, no problem for them. We were taken to our pitch and guided in.

We were near the toilet facilities but not too close, as you could hear the hand driers.

Reception staff were friendly and great with your needs, the shop was well stocked.

Quite a large campsite and seemed full but didn't notice a lot of people.

Trains go by the site all day and evening but they are not intrusive.

Just across the road you have the pebble beach, great for us as we have a kayak so didn't have to carry it far.

There are two very close train stops, we took a train to Hastings, cheaper than we thought a good service.

We were very lucky with the weather 30 degrees every day. In the evenings we had bbq's on the beach.

The Aqua bar on the beach is a 20 minute walk. They allow dogs and have entertainment every night. We didn't eat there but the food looked good.

There was another pub toward Bexhill a short walk along the road, left out of the campsite. 'The star' very much catered to feeding you. It is a really old pub but we felt it had lost its character.

We loved our stay and would go again if we were going East again.

Be warned! If you use a sat nav it tries to take you down a road not suitable for caravans, this is on the first roundabout as you enter Pevensey.

When you get to Pevensey Bay the road that takes you to the campsite is full of pot holes and blind sleeping policemen, go really slow.

Visited Normans Bay over the weekend of 12th. 13th and 14th of August to coincide with the Eastbourne Airshow, so site was pretty much full but never seemed busy.

Staff were ever helpful, first pitch was too bumpy, 2nd pitch to soft/small, third choice just right. Despite advising a unit size of 8m x 5m they didn't seem to hold this information.

Facilities were never busy despite the capacity, they were however below the standard expected for the price ratio compared with the other sites we used this year, adequate but under whelming, a little dated and in need of a deep clean.

Used the reception shop for a few bits and bobs prices were fair and the choice varied.

6m rule was not adhered to and vehicular access between units was unregulated and at times bordering on dangerous - although this has more to do with customers than providers.

Overall a pleasant stay, and despite the lack-lustre facilities would visit again maybe next year for the airshow again. The weather did help with wall-to-wall sunshine for 3 days with a cooling breeze.

A nice little site that is more than adequate for a decent holiday or short break without really excelling.

The wardens were friendly enough and there is a small well stocked shop and the toilets are kept clean and were numerous enough for the size of the site.

Pitches were a bit small and somewhat undefined and it appeared that everyone was just short of shoved in haphazardly.

The immediate local area is nice enough and great having the sea so close by, a little jaded around the edges in parts, but that gives it a certain charm. Further afield the countryside is very pleasant and plenty of places to visit.

Main downside was that being on the edge of the site a rather cold wind whipped across the marsh towards us, meaning we were never really able to sit out and enjoy the sun.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in our tent whilst we were waiting for our new van. We pulled in around the club directed check-in time of 1pm and were in a fairly long queue of other arrivals parked around the car park. Once through check-in we were directed to our pitch with our friend next to us; they did seem a little more fussy than usual telling him which round to park his van. This could be due to the pitches themselves not being very well marked out.

Being in the tent, we did notice the constant sea breeze that at times, whips across the site quite strongly. This was a bit of a downside as it also didnít really allow us to sit out and enjoy the nice weather and it also cooled the temperature by a couple of degrees.

The facilities were clean enough and we never had to queue to use them, despite the site being very busy.

The direct area around the site itself is a little run down, but the easy access to the beach and nearby Pevensey Castle was good.

A nice enough site, but not one I'd be rushing back to.

We had a lovely 5days at Normans bay despite the unseasonal cold weather, plenty of long dog walks along the deep shingle beach, the site is open to the elements with little shelter from the wind.

Wardens helpful and friendly, however steadfast with the clubs 1p. M book in rule, new shower block open, no heating on during our stay.

Some provisions in the reception area, small newsagents and shop 15 minutes walk west into the village, no footpath.

Ideal site for families as the beach is right across the road, unlikely to return due to location.
