Alan Rogers Review

If you wish to enjoy the lively town of Hastings with its pubs and amusements, then Shearbarn may well be for you. It is situated on top of a hill on the eastern edge of Hastings with attractive views over the bay and a wooded valley as you approach the park. There are two distinct areas and you arrive at the holiday home park first where you will find the reception. Further up the hill and through a barrier (card entry), you come to the touring section. This consists of open grass areas with around 140 pitches marked by stones. Some are reasonably flat, others sloping, and 100 have electrical connections with water points around. There is a separate, large area for tents at the top of the park where a torch might be useful.

Close to the reception area is Barney’s Bar complex with a restaurant and amusement arcade upstairs and a pleasant bar area downstairs with real ale and entertainment in high season. Also here are a launderette, shop and a good children’s play area with seating for parents.


The first sanitary building (accessible by card), just inside the touring area, has undergone some modernisation and is the best of the three main units. The others are in need of refurbishment. There is a small unit for the tent area in addition to its main one. Shop (July-Sept). Barney’s Bar serves meals and takeaways all season (weekends only outside peak times). Amusement arcade. Shop. Launderette.

Follow the A21 to Hastings and then signs to the seafront and turn left. Follow the road around to the Stables Theatre then right onto Harold Road. Turn right again into Gurth Road and up the hill into Barley Lane. The park is well signed.
