your best bet is at Black Robin Farm, this is a Caravan Club Cl, a small site about 10 per night, maybe less for a long stay,it is on the road to Beachy Head.

I checked out camp sites that I knew in the area and they all closed in Oct which isnt what you wanted as you need all the year round ones I suggest you Drive around the area and just ask farmers and pubs they might lay on a hook up I had even wondered if you had thought of asking the College as they might be glad of someone on site through the night. You dont know until you ask

Thanks everyone for the advice so far..

Had some promising replies from sites but still trying to negotiate the price downward!... Black Robin is full on a few dates alas...

We're going to get down to the area tonight so will perhaps book a short stay and then do a bit of a recce around the area over the next few days..

I will ask the college - that is a good idea!

Cheers

I would suggest to the college to let you park up for the odd night you cannot get onto the Black Robin site, they might just go for that, rather than a long term stop.

cabby.

there are another 2 sites, but one is just above Polegate and the other up towards East Dean.rather hilly.

I have seen a couple of vans parked overnight on the sea front up the beachy head end, maybe you could combine this with the BR site.

just had a thought, how about the YHA in Eastbourne, on the A259 just on the outskirts of the town, maybe combine that with the BR site.

Nice wildcamp spot on Firle Beacon - but a bit exposed if it is windy. There is a nice CL at South Heighton which I've stayed on - can't access CC CL site at the moment for the name.
