Overview

About the property

Welcome to your 3 bedroom holiday home in the heart of 1066 country.

Lesley and Graham thank you for viewing our Deluxe graded ABI Horizon static caravan. We both have a history of working in the hospitality industry and our aim is to bring you some hotel style luxuries not normally found in other caravans. These include a Welcome Cuppa and biscuits, complimentary toiletries, fresh fruit and confectionary. We also include all pillows, duvets, linen and towels (for use in the van only please) in the price of your stay. NEW FOR 2018 SUMMER SEASON - we have recently updated some interior decor and soft furnishings and have added some occasional furniture for your use outside should you wish to eat and drink al fresco.

We want your stay in 1066 country to be as pleasurable and relaxed as possible and, as we live locally to the van, we can be on hand to deal with any queries you may have during your stay. Our caravan is a two minute walk from the main complex but is still in a quiet location on the Park. We both look forward to welcoming you.

Measuring 36 x 12 feet our caravan offers spacious accommodation for all the family to enjoy a break away. The van is light and airy and has net curtains throughout to ensure your privacy. All windows are double glazed.

Gas is mains connected and so there is no inconvenience of having to change cylinders. Gas and electricity supply is included in the price of your stay.

The lounge area has contemporary furnishings and seats at least 8 people comfortably. There is plenty of modern wood effect cupboard and shelf space. A Freeview 32 inch television and dvd combi is installed for your use. A cosy gas fire is installed in case the evenings get chilly.

The dining table with additional sofa seats and stools means that everyone in your group can eat in comfort and the coffee table converts into a handy tray in case you wish to have breakfast brought to you in bed!

There is a fully equipped galley kitchen area with gas oven and four ring gas hob, microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge with freezer compartment. There is ample crockery, cutlery, saucepans, bowls, dishes, utensils, glass tumblers and wine glasses for your use during your stay. We also provide a handy kitchen basket including washing up liquid, cleaning liquid, cloth and sponge and a tea towel and paper kitchen roll for your use.

The bedrooms consist of three doubles - one with double bed and two with 2 single beds each. There is also a double pull out sofa bed in the lounge so that a total of 8 people could sleep in the van (please advise us if you intend to use this so that we can provide additional linen). All bedrooms have warm air heating. Bedrooms have cupboards/wardrobes with hanging and shelf space and bags/cases can be stored under the beds. We also supply a hairdryer for your use.

The shower room is well appointed with wc and handbasin and heated towel rail; in addition there is a further separate wc and handbasin in the caravan for convenience all round! The bathrooms have obscure glazing and brushed silver metal venetian blinds for extra privacy. Loo rolls are provided.

Our caravan is situated within the popular Combe Haven Holiday Park which has a host of activities for all ages. There are plenty of eating and drinking choices on Park including the Mash and Barrel Bar and Restaurant, The Saxon Centre with Sky Sports and Ball Park for the little ones, Burger King and Pappa Johns (who will deliver a pizza direct to your caravan). There is a mini market on site with freshly baked goods and all the provisions you need to self cater. Guests can use all of the eating and drinking facilities without passes but some activities do require passes which can be purchased on site. We do not include Fun Passes in the price of our caravan as this helps keep the accommodation cost down for our guests and allows them the choice of what they wish to do during their stay at the Park.

About Lesley and Graham

We both have a history in the hospitality industry. Lesley moved to Hastings from London in 1968 when her parents bought a hotel on the seafront in St. Leonards on Sea and she has lived here ever since. We just love living with the sea and see it every day.

Lesley and Graham purchased this caravan in 2016

Why Lesley and Graham chose Hastings

Wanted to buy a holiday home and fell in love with our "van" as soon as we saw it. We had searched all over the UK and found the answer right on our doorstep eventually. This brings back memories of childhood going to holiday camps with our parents. But WOW!!! it is so different and modern now. We go there every week and spend £1 in the arcade and have a burger. We also stay over as often as we can - it is like going on holiday just around the corner!

What makes this caravan unique

We aim to make this a unique stay for our guests, bringing the hotel holiday experience to a caravan at an affordable price.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful, it had everything we needed and was super clean

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay, with a warm welcome from Graham when we arrived and as we left to go home. The caravan is superb, so well equipped, everything seems brand new. The bedrooms were warm and very comfortable, we all slept very well. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook if we wanted to. The lounge area was very cosy and warm with the gas fire on a chilly evening. The caravan had a bonus of having parking right outside so it wasn't far to carry our luggage from the car. There was lots of tea and coffee to use which was most welcome after a long journey. The children were thrilled with the biscuit barrel full of biscuits and the sweetie jar too. The fruit bowl was amazing and we just managed to eat everything in time before we left, even the melon! Thank you again Lesley and Graham, we'll definitely be back to stay again.

Extremely homely and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Graham on arrival who kindly walked me through the caravan and the amenities. The caravan itself was spotless and the extras were very welcomed (a full fruit bowl, biscuit barrel, sweetie jar, toiletries, tea, coffee, sugar, milk, loo rolls).

The beds are extremely comfortable with good quality bedding and pillows that were made up lovely. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for our stay - including salt and pepper :) The shop on camp is equipped with everything you may need and very reasonably priced.

The evenings got a little chilly (however Graham had offered to bring over a heater if needed) but the homely throws in the lounge sorted that right out and when the curtains were shut and the lamp switched on we felt very warm and cosy.

The toilets were immaculate as were the basins and shower. The water pressure was adequate for a good shower.

Overall, a wonderful last minute find and would definitely book again.

Thank you!

A very comfortable and well equipped Holiday home.

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable stay with lots of space for our family of 5 adults for 6 nights. Although will still comfortably fit 8. Communication from the owner leading up to our stay was excellent with lots of useful information and we were also met by the owners on arrival. The caravan was very well equipped with a full kitchen and had very welcome extra touches such as a lovely bowl of fruit, tea, coffee, milk, biscuits, towels, all the beds made up etc. A really nice touch. Would definitely recommend it and will stay again next time we are in the area. If you want access to the on site Haven facilities then you have to pay extra for passes. But there is plenty to do in the surrounding Hastings, Bexhill, Eastbourne and East Sussex Countyside so we didn't need Haven passes.

Lovely, comfortable and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely and comfortable holiday home that was fully equipped and surprisingly spacious, as well as close to the main facilities like the holiday park pool and restaurant. Nicely presented and with comfortable beds. Easily accessible area to main town and nearby beaches as well as other tourist attractions. Easy to book and park by as well. Would highly recommend for a weekend break stay or family holiday location.
