Holiday under the stars… at our family-friendly holiday escape


Touring & Camping

Surrounded by miles of country-parkland and close to Hastings’ seafront and historic old town, there’s plenty for you to explore with your loved ones. From cycling routes, to adventure golf on the seafront, a swim in our indoor heated pool, or an evening of entertainment in our bar and restaurant – a lifetime of memories are waiting to be made, here at Shear Barn!

Please note that from the 1st November 2021 -2nd January 2022 we will only have one operational toilet and shower block available for our guests.

Polite notice

Please note the access road to Shear Barn Holiday Park (Barley Lane) is extremely narrow.

One side is a hedgerow that Shear Barn does not own, the other side is a residential road, which has no yellow lines, therefore it often occupies parked cars (especially in high season). This can provoke congestion.

If you have a large/wide vehicle we would advise approaching with caution. We are not responsible for any damage caused.

What’s new?

We have new and improved amenity blocks, a brand new disabled-friendly toilet and shower unit, a re-designed pitch layout as well as on-site security and protective entrance controls.

The perfect pitch

Pitches vary in size between 8m and 10m. Each pitch includes enough space for a tent, trailer tent, touring caravan, or motorhome, and a car, gazebo or awning.

Our brand new hard standing pitches are composed of a gravel plot for your tourer to be positioned on, and a surrounding area of grass for your awning.

These pitches are perfect for bad weather or for heavier vehicles as the ground is sturdier.

Our grass-electric pitches are indicated by colour-coded numbers on the touring map. Non-electric tourers are allocated to the left of the field, and non-electric campers are allocated to the top tent field.

Fires and fire pits are not allowed, however, you are allowed a disposable BBQ if it’s on a raised surface.



  • Electric, non-electric and hard standing pitches available
  • New disabled-friendly toilet and shower unit
  • Brand new hard standing pitch layout

All touring and camping guests are invited to enjoy The Retreat Bar & Restaurant.

The indoor heated swimming pool is chargeable at £3.50 per child, £4 per adult and £1 per infant.

A Guide To Pitching Up

Motorhomes / Campers

Please reverse into your pitch, using the coloured slab as your middle marker. There you will be able to connect to your hook up point.


When approaching the pitch, please ensure that the jockey wheel is centrally positioned on the pitch slab.

Tents with electric hook up

Please pitch your tent so it is middle of your pitch marker, and please ensure that you use the correct hook up number.

Tents / Caravans / Motorhomes – No electric

You are free to pitch up anywhere in the Tent Field area and the top area of the touring field. Please ensure that you are at least 10 meters away from any tent electric pitch.


Please note that there can only be one car per pitch, there is additional parking in the Country Park Car Park.
Your barrier code has been created for you only. Under no circumstances are you permitted to give your barrier code to anybody else to use.

Commercial Vehicles Notice

We do not allow commercial or sign-written vehicles on-site at Shear Barn Holiday Park. This includes any vehicles without windows on the sides or rear of the vehicle. If you are unsure if your vehicle is allowed please make sure to contact the team prior to your holiday to avoid disappointment when you arrive at our park.
