I've been to this site every year for 5 years. But never again. If you have children especially girls then avoid this site like the plague! We've been offered generators, cheap knives discounted from £169 for £30. And the staff are nowhere to be found. And the site charge extra for a gazebo put up in the pitch you've already... More

We stayed for 3 nights whilst visiting family in Hastings. Apart from the appalling weather we couldn't fault anything at all. We stayed in a 2 bedroom lodge with hot tub. The lodge was spotlessly clean and a real home from home. The whole site was obviously well looked after. The shower hose broke on our second day - we... More

Situated on the top of the hill,it is always windy but refreshing.The staff are helpful and let us change our pitch to one we preferred with no problem... More

Really lovely food at this club house / restaurant . We had salmon/prawn rolls with salad, cold slaw which was home made and chips. Good value for money and very tasty. Service was lovely and ask for a table by the window as you see the sea which makes the experience here even nicer. Well stocked bar and children's play... More

I camped for two nights in July 2015 in a small tent with my girlfriend. The site is good and I've been staying there since I was a child, more than forty years. Unfortunately, the security staff and site warden do not do their job properly and this spoiled our stay. A large family group camped near our tent allowed... More

Just returned from a long weekend at Shearbarn in a lodge with sea view. We have stayed twice before and will be returning again after another great weekend. The lodge has everything you need and the double is very spacious. The food in the resturant is very good value for money. They offer some sort of deal on every night... More

I would highly recommend this place. Our wooden lodge with hot tub was home from home and had everything you need for a comfortable stay! The pub/restaurant was lovely with very helpful pleasant staff. They even have a indoor swimming pool. Very handy if the weather is poor. This a dog friendly holiday park,we do not have dogs but the... More

Fab place, very clean, friendly staff, nice facilities, great food in the bar/restaurant, close to Hastings, great walks, specious lodges! Only thing to improve is band on Saturday night - a little bit cheesy!

We booked 3 wooden lodges at Shearbarn including two which allowed pets and one with a hot tub. We were thoroughly surprised that the pet lodges were spotless so much so that unless you were allergic you would never know any dogs had been in there! The reception and bar staff were very helpful and friendly too. Very impressed with... More
