New homes in Hailsham

Live the life

Located in East Sussex just a short drive from the coast, Hailsham is within commuting distance of Eastbourne and close to both the South Downs National Park and High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you want rural living within easy reach of bigger towns and cities, a new home in Hailsham could be the right choice for you and your family.

Things to see and do

Hailsham is a market town, with regular markets in the town centre along with a weekly livestock market and a monthly farmer’s market. The town is also home to Hailsham Museum and Heritage Centre, Bushy Wood Activity Centre, Hailsham Leisure Centre and Maurice Thornton Playing Fields.

If you’re moving to Hailsham with children, they’ll love exploring Knockhatch Adventure Park, getting active at Knockhatch Ski and Snowboard Centre, and trying extreme sports at Knockhill Mountain Board Centre. Other attractions include Drusillas Park, the Observatory Science Centre and Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway.

For a breath of fresh air, you can go for a seaside stroll along Eastbourne Beach, wander through the grounds at Michelham Priory and Gardens, or go hiking and cycling in the South Downs National Park.

Other attractions include Shinewater Park in Eastbourne, Blackberry Farm in Lewes, Herstmonceux Castle and Pevensey Levels National Nature Reserve.


For families moving to Hailsham, it’s good to know there are a number of ‘outstanding’ schools in the local area, including Gildredge House and Claverham Community College. The independent Bede’s Senior School and Moira House Girls’ School are both nearby, while Eastbourne College offers further education.

If you have older children who are thinking about studying for a degree, the University of Brighton Eastbourne Campus is only a short drive away.
