A Place to Stay; Camber Sands Holiday Park
Fancy a low-cost Family holiday with all the entertainment inclusive?
Or do you fancy a peaceful place to stay, where you can go out and explore the area?
We recently returned to the Camber Sands Holiday Park for a wonderful weekend with our daughter Rana and Granddaughter Isabella, aged 5. They absolutely love it as there’s so much to do, most of it free of charge!
Parkdean Resorts, who own Camber Sands Holiday Park, are at the lower end of the budget. They want every family to afford to go on holiday. Isn’t that great?!
Our caravan had two bedrooms and a studio couch in the lounge, so it sleeps six.
Prices are per caravan, not per person.
There were two loos and a shower, and the huge kitchen/lounge.
Isabella had great fun exploring the caravan, opening cupboard doors, running up and down, trying out all the seats, and looking out the windows.
The weather wasn’t very good, which makes Camber Sands Holiday Park an ideal place for a holiday as there’s still a lot to do indoors. The main Amusement Centre is about a five minute walk from our accommodation, but we decided to drive there.
There’s plenty of parking everywhere, and right outside the caravan, which is really useful for loading and unloading our luggage.
We parked the car and walked past the Supermarket and through the huge Amusement Arcade, where Rana and Isabella had great fun shooting monsters! Then Isabella had a go on another machine and won a mountain of sweets!
Machines there do seem to give out prizes a lot, including tickets for free goes, which keeps the children happy.
Then we decided to have an early lunch. We sat in the Boathouse Restaurant, right next to the Soft Play area and Isabella quickly made a new friend there.
After lunch, we all returned to the caravan for a while and Isabella watched some films.
We went to explore Camber Sands. The beach is right next to the Park. Then we took a look at the High Street there, where there are a couple of supermarkets and a choice of restaurants.
In the evening it was time for the entertainment to begin.
After another meal in The Boathouse, we walked through the Amusement Arcade to the Theatre.
The Entertainment Crew were led by Lizzie the Lizard. We found it a bit corny until we saw Isabel’s face. She was totally engrossed.
A small shop in the Theatre sells souvenirs and Rana bought her a Lizzie doll which she clutched happily while she watched the show.
In the morning we had breakfast in the Boathouse, then Rana and Isabella went home while we went to see the latest caravans for sale with Charlie the Sales Advisor. He showed us a 35 x 12ft caravan, reduced from £26,995 to £14,995. It has 3 bedrooms and a studio couch, and sleeps 8. It’s fully double glazed and central heated. Everything is included, bedding, cutlery, pots and pans, fridge, cooker, TV, etc.
I know that we’ll soon be returning to Camber Sands. There are a lot of interesting places to explore in the area.

Remember, that’s per caravan, not per person!
