Considering A Move To Bexhill And Would Love Thoughts, Advice From Anyone

posted by Jeb on 21 Feb 2019 at 7:48 am

Hello. I've enjoyed reading this message board and saw an older thread from 10 years ago from a reader who was considering to move to Bexhill-on-Sea.

My parter and I are in our 110s (I'm 49, he is 59!). We currently live in London, because of my work, but have a weekend flat in Brighton.

We already know that we can't bear the thought of being retired in London. I can't wait to never come here again tbh.

Brighton was always our retirement 'idea' (we both grew up on coastal areas) but over the last 5-10 years I think it's lost its sparkle. What used to be an open and welcoming city has atrophied into a really badly-run dump with too many extremists of one form or another.

So we started to look further along the coast. We are thinking of Devon but I do worry that will feel a bit 'too far away'. I admit the first I knew of Bexhill-on-sea was the sight of the De La Warr pavilion in the Suchet-Poirot dramatisation of the ABC Murders. If I say I loved that production but hated the BBC's revision of it this Christmas, that should explain everything about me!

So: would a conservative-minded middle-aged couple who are active, enjoy theatre, love eating out - would we find a good berth for retirement in Bexhill-on-sea? I can guess the answer to that! Any and all thoughts are welcome. In particular if you can suggest areas of the town in which to centre a property search that would be very helpful.

Many thanks for any help.

Hello,
Moving to Bexhill is the best move I ever made it's a lovely place to live. You already mentioned the DLWP which has lots of events on. There are sone good restaurants and nice pubs in and around Bexhill. Also Eastbourne and Hastings are not to far away. I would suggest you stay in Bexhill and have a look around. Good luck.
