Having twigged that we can sell our two bed apartment in Lewes and buy a five bed house further along the coast for much the same price, we're looking at getting outta dodge.
We've seen two beautiful period homes, one in Hailsham and the other in Bexhill. Both are gorgeous, so it's really down to the locations. Does anyone have experience of either town? Good points? Bad points? Nice schools? Which would you go for?

I like Hailsham, nice small town which is developing, good schools, pretty much everything you need....but no railway line.

Very true Landporter , but the railway would have only got you to T.Wells and taken an hour - Or Polegate ( should have kept that bit and run a railbus ) now it`s a brilliant tarmacked cycle route from polegate to Heathfield . The best thing about Hailsham`s roads are - there is usually more than 1 way from A-B so if it gets busy there`s a way round .

If you're after a bit of culture then Bexhill has the edge with the de la Warr pavilion. And of course the sea and the railway. If you want better value, lots of arts, music, old town, seaside and country, plus railway and superb art gallery, fresh fish straight off the boats - well Hastings is the place to go.

Bexhill up it`s bum . Hastings the armpit of Sussex . Live in Hailsham , use it`s many pubs - attend it`s many churches - And it`s cinema + Indoor swimming pool. Travel to most places in Sussex with ease.

I was in Bexhill the other day. Lovely seafront, but the town is one of the most depressing places I've been too. Hastings may not be the most refined place in the world, but at least it has a bit of a spark (even if it's only someone setting the pier on fire). There are lots of nice Victorian houses at affordable prices, with plenty of things to see and do. I'd consider living there if the rail links were better and there were fewer people off their faces on Tennants Extra.
