About Cinderford Camping
Tents, campervans, dogs, kids – yes. Caravans, motorhomes, trailer tents – no.
A footpath from the campsite leads north-west to the Cuckmere River and follows its banks for several miles making for a nice local walk or you can just take a much shorter route across to the Merrie Harriers pub (01323 833108) in Cowbeech. If you're here with kids, Knockhatch Farm and Adventure Park is a popular calling point (01323 442051; five miles) as is the slightly more low key, family run Blackberry Farm (01825 872912; eight miles). For history, it's five miles to Herstmonceux Castle (01323 833816) and 10 miles to the village of Battle and all the sights of the 1066, while, for most people, it's Hastings itself that's perhaps the main draw along with the rest of the south coast. The seaside towns of Eastbourne, Hastings and Bexhill are all within a 20 minutes’ drive from Cinderford. Besides strolling along the pier or taking dips in the sea, Hastings Country Park is worth a visit. Home to a variety of landscapes from the cliffs that are a special area of conservation, ancient woodland and lowland meadows to the dramatic cliffs along the coastline that also offer incredible far-reaching views. Similarly, Bexhill has a lot more than just beaches to offer. If you’re wanting to make a day of your seaside visit, then you can visit De La Warr Pavilion (01424 229111), host to live performances, free exhibitions, events and more, their constantly evolving schedule means no two visits here are the same.
