We stayed at Hastings Touring Park for a week in August with our tent and 5 children. I must say I was pleased we chose this park. The park was fairly busy (August) but we were in the back field where there was more room. The staff were all welcoming and polite, site was clean and the facilities were also kept nice and clean.
Kids were a little disappointed with the play park area as they felt this was fairly limited compared to other places we have stayed so they preferred to make their own games up on the field.
We went out everyday so didn't spend too much time on site. The area was fantastic. Nature reserve surrounded the site and you could literally walk for miles.
Apparently this site is walking distance to the town centre but I wouldn't have wanted to walk it due to the hills and uneven surfaces along the way.
The only negative things I have to say about it, and it did annoy me was, The swimming pool. It was a rainy day so thought we would take the kids over to the pool. I got there and was charged £12.50 for two adults and 2 children and was told I could only have an hour in there. I was very annoyed as I couldn't tell the kids we couldn't go in as they were excited but the pool is fairly small and no where near £12.50 of anyone's money for an hours entertainment. They don't accept card and there was no cash machine. Had to spend £5 in the bar on crisp to get cash back. Literally not a happy camper! Personally if you would like to go swimming, check out some of the pools in the local area first. Apart from this, we enjoyed our stay and would go back again. :-)
