Top 5 things to do near Combe Haven and on park
Paul Keats is the General Manager at Combe Haven Holiday Park in Sussex, a hillside resort with beautiful views across the countryside and coast. Here, he talks us through the top five things to do when staying at Combe Haven.
1. Try out all the activities
Batfast landed at Combe Haven for 2022. This new simulator game allows you to play baseball, cricket and tennis while indoors in our AirSpace Activity venue. Step into the special netted playing area and swing your chosen bat to compete against your friends as simulated players pitch the balls towards you. It’s great fun for families and groups of all ages.
Also in our AirSpace Activity venue, little monkeys can literally climb the walls... which is a lot better than having them climb yours! From complete beginners to experienced climbers aged six to adults, our three-person climbing wall is an ideal activity for fun and fitness.
2. Be entertained at The Saxon family venue
The Saxon is our secondary entertainment venue, ideal for watching televised sports, entertainment shows or just having a drink. Less crowded than our main entertainment complex, kids will be entertained with a pool table, air hockey, darts and a small soft play area, and the small stage is ideal for in-house performances and visiting acts.
3. Visit Combe Valley Countryside Park
Directly bordering and accessible from the Park, Combe Valley Countryside Park is a 150-hectare nature reserve with ancient woodland and reed beds. Excellent for both nature lovers and four-legged friends!
4. Have fun in Hastings
A 10-minute drive from the park, Hastings is a fun day out for all ages. It has four continuous miles of pebble beaches, and plenty of attractions to explore. There’s Hastings Pier, the Old Town, Smugglers Adventure, Hastings Aquarium, and the Cliff Railways Funicular lifts to Hastings Country Park.
There’s also an abundance of bistros, restaurants, pubs and music venues to discover.
5. Explore Rye and Camber Sands
Britain’s best-preserved medieval town, Rye is a 30-minute scenic drive from the Park. It’s awash with winding cobblestone streets, medieval half-timbered houses and a rich history of smuggling and maritime conflict. So there’s plenty to sate culture buffs, while those keen on eating and drinking the very best in local produce won't leave disappointed. Whatever your tastes, Rye’s quirky shops, antiques outlets, medieval inns and cafés make for a great day out.
Ten minutes further on from Rye is one of the UK’s best sandy beaches, Camber Sands. It has four miles of sandy beaches and dunes and beautiful sunsets with a large all-year-round dog friendly section.
What do you love about Combe Haven?
I love the wide variety of activities and facilities on offer for all, and the park’s proximity to great coastal towns like Hastings, Bexhill, Eastbourne and Brighton in the beautiful Sussex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. But our biggest asset by far is our warm and friendly Combe Haven team.
