Holidays in Sussex
Start planning your Great British break
Sussex caravan holidays and holiday parks
Sussex holidays are a great option for a whistle-stop rest and retreat. Home to some of the UK coast’s most famous names, it’s also one of the sunniest places in the UK, sitting neatly on the north shore of the English Channel. Whether you fancy a day out in brimming Brighton or the sensual South Downs, a Sussex caravan holiday is your ideal base for getting the most out of this southern gem.
Our Sussex holiday parks are in some of the county’s loveliest spaces. Church Farm is a short distance from West Wittering beach, widely regarded as one of the UK’s best. Combe Haven is close to historic Hastings, with the aptly named town of Battle a little further afield. Fancy bringing your dog? Check out our dog friendly holidays to Sussex.

Things to do in Sussex
Miles of golden sand, in a county that's famed for pebbly shorelines, line the clean clear water, both surrounded by oodles of family-friendly fun. But Sussex isn't all beach resorts; there's also beautiful rolling countryside, in the form of the South Downs and the Sussex Weald. The South Downs form over 1,600 square kilometres of natural beauty. There's also plenty of castle action, with Bodiam Castle, in particular, being the real deal. Studying its portcullis, spiral staircase and battlements you'll be transported to a medieval world. In a final contrast, fashionistas can get their fill of fashion in Brighton and Camber Sands. These funky towns are full of quirky boutiques, rock and roll history, and pop-up shops and restaurants.
