Moving to Bexhill - Thread

posted by Adrienne on 25 Apr 2007 at 10:37 pm

This thread is for comments relating to moving to Bexhill

Original post:

Hi I live in Bromley and am seriously considering moving to Bexhill; just me and my daughter who is under 10. She has some medical needs which I tend to and will still need to travel to London for these but I guess I need to know what is the nearest hospital (A & E) and is it ok. What do any of you think of the local schools? What are out of school facilities like ie swimming pool, Brownies etc. There appears to be a shortage of houses on the market as well, does anyone know about this? Thank you for reading this and I hope you can help.

Moving To Bexhill

My daughter starts Bexhill College in September. We are moving down in July just the two of us. I will be looking for private rented accomodation and a job. Have HLTA status in primary school work.

Good And Bad Points - What Are They?

posted by Sandra Smith on 12 Mar 2007 at 2:10 pm


Me, my husband and three kids (20, 21, 23,) are considering moving to Bexhill. We have visited a few times when my husband had relatives in the area this was only for a few hours at a time but we really liked the area. Are we doing the right thing? What are the good things about Bexhill and what are the bad (please be honest as every place as them)? Is there anything for my kids to do who are in the early 20?s (cinemas, clubs, shopping centres)?

We shall visit in the next few weeks for a weekend to make a final decision. But I would like some information before we get there and who better to ask then the people of Bexhill

So guys please respond and let me the good and bad



Hi Adrienne

Hi Adrienne,

I can only give you info that I have found out and know. I'm moving down in July, just me and my 16 year old daughter, having seperated from my husband. The nearest hospital is Conquest in hastings and my sister takes my nephew there regularly for walking problems. She is happy with care he gets. As for schools there are 8 schools around Bexhil, that are within easy reach, all primary. Their offsted results are good, I looked as I work in a school in Bromley!! (Pickhurst Infants) Maybe we should meet and compare notes before I go. I can't wait for move, I will be renting privately as have no chance of getting mortgage alone. Bexhill is great, my sister lives in St Leonards. Hope I have helped and if you want to contact me I can give you contact details.

Bexhill Hospital

posted by Peter Fell on 02 May 2007 at 11:34 pm

The Conquest is not the only hospital in the area - though I suppose it is the main largest. Bexhill also has a hospital. I find it hard to believe you find properties hard to find in Bexhill as there are for sale signs all over the area. I live in a block of 4 flats with one for sale - though only one bedroom / garden/ off street parking/ garage but no pets and near to the town centre. But around this area ther are quite a fewproperties for sale.

Thinking Of Moving To Bexhill

posted by Andrea Dixon on 18 Jun 2008 at 11:00 pm

Can anyone tell me if there are problems with anti social behaviour/crime etc?
The crime rates seem lower than where we live now but just wanted an idea.
Also schooling- the local schools OFSTED report is a lot better than the one I was going to send my daughter to but was just wanting some reassurance bexhill is a good place to live.


posted by M Woolf on 19 Jun 2008 at 3:06 pm

There is very little in the way of serious crime. If you get the local paper, Bexhill Observer, you will see that most is of petty and pointless vandalism but even this is not a huge issue. It depends what you are comparing it with though: I used to live in central London. For some inexplicable reason, as it seems very pleasant by inner-city standards, Sidley is a fairly dodgy area but it's hardly the Bronx!

Hi Gary
We moved to Bexhill 8 years ago, and love it, we did not know one area from another, as we had never been to Bexhill before, we just fell upon it while touring around, and fell in love with it, and bought a bungalow in West Bexhill,(Collington area) which is a very nice area, quiet, but within easy walk of the town and Collington railway station.
Hope you find something you like as we did.
Might see you walking along the seafront!!

My husband recent left us. I have 3 children 12, 3 and 1 years. My son was in private school which he now has to leave so the world is our oyster or so they say. I've found a house for sale in Reginald Road and Bexhill High school have a place for my son but not knowing the area its a scary move. Reading the notices everyone there loves it but for me it's a big move away from Dartford where I grew up and know lots of people. What is there for teenagers and young children to do out of school and what is Bexhill High school like? Please help...

Is There Anything For 12 Yr Olds In Bexhill?

For Young People

posted by Helpful on 03 Mar 2009 at 12:22 pm

Bexhill is not a bad place for young people and slowly getting better. There is a good youth club at the Station Road Community Centre on a Tuesday night which is professionally run and the town has the usual mix of sporting clubs. Its safe generally for teenagers to be out with friends in the town centre and parks at a reasonable times (not 10.00pm at night for example!) And there is the beach in summer which is great. Not everything is provided that you might find in a bigger town but Hastings and Eastbourne are easy to reach on the bus or train for swimming pools.

Bexhill High is a large school which I would describe overall as being fair. The school has the usual problems of large state schools with loosing staff but no violence or bullying. My kids both go there and enjoy it and are doing OK. There is a brand new building going up ready i think next year?

Give It A Go !!

Hi Jenny .. Glad I am not alone at feeling a little apprehensive in moving to Bexhill. Am in the middle of buying a property in Cooden but,having done quite a lot of research on the area and found people most helpful/friendly, have decided to give it a go. I live quite near you at present (Swanley area) so perhaps we could compare notes/worries. Good luck anyway.

Hi jennie we moved to little common 3 weeks ago and love it. I lived in surrey for 39 years so was a big step for me too. I have 3 children who are 11,7 and 3. My daughter has just been given bexhill high. It is having a lot of money spent on it so will be great when finished. My children settled at school really well within days. There is loads to do compared to where i came from. You have eastbourne 15 mins one way and hastings 10 mins the other way. Loads of walks etc and people couldn't be more friendly. I too was worried about leaving my comfort zone but am so glad we have. Hope this helps. Caroline x

Hi Caroline, glad to hear you are enjoying your move, your children are a similar age to mine so hopefully we'll meet up at the school gates.

So far I've only heard good things from people who have moved to Bexhill from London and Kent so I'm hoping we'll all love it.

I looked at a house in Swanley Patricia and decided on Bexhill instead - Hope we both prefer it. Good luck with your move

My partner is also moving down, in a couple of months, after he has sold his flat in London, (to his own property a mile or so away.) I have a daughter of 16 who will visit but will not be living with me!!(sob)
I'm a young 46, interested in anything artistic/creative, love the sea, music, etc.etc.! I'd really like to make contact with other people in the area and to hopefully make some new friends along the way! Hope to hear back from some of you friendly people out there, and get to know the area! Thanks.

Hi Ali,
Your best bet would be to get hold of the latest Citizens Guide which is given out free of charge with the Bexhill-on-Sea Observer. It's full of information about loads of different clubs, not only in Bexhill but neighbouring areas.
I hope the move etc goes ok.

Hi This is to Tracy and Maciej. We moved to bexhill in february and it is the best thing we ever did. Wish we had done it sooner. We moved to little common so not too sure about all the areas in Bexhill. I believe that Pebsham is a nice area as we have people at school that live there. My daughter is due to start bexhill high in sept, many people didn't speak very highly of it but in 2010 when the new school opens it will be absolutely fantastic and i believe it will be the most popular school around. Hope this helps.

Many Thanks

Hi Jo Not sure what part of bexhill you are moving to but we live in little common and the school and nursery which is just next to it is fantastic. It is one of the best primary schools in the area. My son has just left the nursery and was very happy there. The best nearest shopping centre is Eastbourne which isn't too bad but Brighton is only an hour away and has fantastic shopping. Good luck with your move.

Where Are The Children Of Bexhill?

posted by Bexhill outsider on 08 Feb 2010 at 12:46 pm

I visited Cooden Beach twice last week checking out the area and property. There is the possibility for us to move into the area. We have 3 young children so being near the beach is ideal. We had lunch at the Cooden Beach hotel and walked along the promenade. Didn't quite make it to the pavillion but all we could see were dog walkers and older folks. It sounds like people in Bexhill like where they live which is wonderful but I just want to hear from people with young children, are you happy here? It would be nice to have a good mix of ages anywhere you live.

Hi Mia
We moved to Bexhill 9 years ago, and like you didn't know one area from another. We live in the Collington area of West Bexhill, which is a nice quiet area. Little Common and Cooden are very nice, but can be more expensive than say Pebsham. Sidley is known to be the worse area

Bexhill Area

posted by Natasha on 09 May 2010 at 2:29 pm

Hi All,

I have lived in Bexhill most of my life and I am now 28. Bexhill is a great place to live, it is nice and quiet and very friendly. If you want more action then you go to Eastbourne or Hastings for the day/eve but you are always happy to return home. The Nicest areas are Collington and Cooden - with Little Common primary school eing the best in the area (the head teacher Mr Pratt is very nice and easy going). The best secondary school is St. Richards but places are hard to get (being catholic makes it easier!), however if you do get a place you'll child will be happy - there is no bullying in the school, high exam grades, and a real culture of learning.

The areas to be wary of is Sidley and Pebsham - especially Sidley which is known to be a no go are - if you have children you will not really want them to mix/ascoiate with Sidley youngsters. Also beware of Buxton Drive - this road and the ones near it are the worst. However this is only my opinion!

Generally, Bexhill Is Fine.

posted by Simon Kempthorne on 12 May 2010 at 4:44 pm

About the only area of Bexhill I think you could argue that might not be too desirable would be Sidley, but it's not exactly a large area within Bexhill or even truly representative of the bad parts of society. Few bad apples, and that jazz. Otherwise Bexhill is mostly clean and a pretty place.

Bexhill's not ideal for shopping (there are a lot of charity shops if money is tight, however), but luckily Eastbourne and Hastings are nearby for that. They're also the best places to try for young adults if they're into the clubbing scene, since Bexhill is lacking in that department!

The De La Warr Pavilion is certainly not for everyone. It's an acquired taste, really, but don't rule it out if you've an open mind with respect to modern art.

Probably the biggest concern is the lack of work for young people, especially if one is lacking in job experience, cannot drive, or lacks qualifications. With all the charity shops around, voluntary work is at least an option (which I do once a week).

Relocation To Bexhill

posted by Susanna Fry on 24 May 2010 at 8:47 am

I hope someone reads this message and is able to give me some information. I am planning to move to Bexhill from Shropshire where I have lived for ten years. Quite an upheaval so want to make sure sure I am doing the right thing. Would appreciate some feedback from people living in Bexhill as to what is going on, clubs, groups and sporting facilities which I can join and get to know people. As I am on my own the process of making friends becomes more difficult. I am also looking for a light and airy flat/house in a good position (not necessarily with sea views) a balcony and garage would be preferable. Is there anyone out there who would like to sell privately? As I am over 55 a retirement flat would also be an option. Would be very grateful for any input received. Thank you.

Bexhill Is Great

posted by Lou on 13 Jun 2010 at 1:45 pm

I've lived in and around this area for 6 years and I think Bexhill is great, I wouldn't live in Hastings though although many people seem quite happy there. The beach is lovely, Delaware Pavilion has been done up. The worst i could possibly say about it is that it can be a teeny bit boring but boring is better than crime central.
I work for the local NHS trust and have no beef about it at all.
Hastings has nice interesting shops, Bexhill shops are pretty good and Eastbourne and Brighton is not far. In my opinion Bexhill is loads better than Hastings or Eastbourne and I've done home vists for the NHS in all these areas. Eastbourne is pretty horrible now, I've had my car broken into there countless times.

A Move To Bexhill

posted by Julie on 14 Jun 2010 at 5:00 pm

I have fallen in love with Bexhill, and want to move from Berkshire there. However, I have an autistic child, and wondered if anyone knows how the schools there cope with special needs and if there is any particular school that is any better than others. I am also wondering has the Eastern European influx hit Bexhill the way it has here? There is a huge strain on special need resources where I live because of Polish people in the area who have kids that do not speak a word of English, and so funding is being wasted on interpreters, and 1-1 learning assistants to teach them English, instead of supporting the children, like my son with genuine special needs. Many thanks.

Young Families In Bexhill

posted by sarah on 05 Jun 2011 at 4:12 pm

Hi everyone, we're considering moving our young family to Bexhill, we've visited a few times and it seems one of the most unspoilt and safest towns on the south coast and on the face of it seems a great place for very young children to grow up. We'd be very grateful for opinions on what Bexhill is like for young families. Has anyone else done the same thing and have any experiences / hindsight to share? Many thanks! Sarah

Re: Young Families In Bexhill

posted by Jim on 08 Jun 2011 at 4:28 pm

Sarah, we moved (back) to Bexhill a few years ago when our second child was on their way, we have 2 children 4 and 5 and it's a great place for kids to grow up. There are a lot of things for kids to do locally with beach, seafront, woods and a number of playgrounds. If the weather isn't so good then there are a number of indoor play areas within relatively easy reach (~20 mins by car).

The biggest concern might be around senior schools, as there isn't much choice if you don't want to commute. That said, the new Bexhill High School certainly looks the business and give it a couple of years to shake out the gremlins it could be really special.

Thanks Jim

I see from searching online that you can get a lot more house and garden for your money in Bexhill, which also has the sea/the fantastic gallery and beautiful downs and is quiet.

I am hoping to move to Bexhill next year. :)
I am from the u.k and returning home after many years living out of the country. After a lot of research I have decided to try Bexhill as it seems perfect for me at this stage of my life. Can anyone advise me how to access local landlords classifieds lists. I will be renting privately. Is the best way to do this through an agency ? ( Any advice on renting experiences etc would be great). What is the best local newspaper to access.
Thanks in advance

Want To Move To Bexhill

We are a married couple in our mid 60s and are looking to move to Bexhill. We have visited the area several times in the past year and know that Little Common and Cooden are the sought after areas but unfortunately slightly out of our price range and that Sidley appears to be the area to avoid therefor the bungalows and price range that would suit us seem to be in Pebsham but this is not an area we have looked at could anyone advise us on the pros and cons of living in Pebsham.
