Hastings, Bexhill, Battle and St. Leonards-On-Sea are historic seaside towns situated on the south coast. These are lively coastal towns which have a colourful history and boast the 'Birth place of British motor racing', 'The Battle of Hastings in 1066' and also the creation of Television by John Logie Baird amongst many other important events that have shaped our country. These four towns and surrounding villages are within access to the transport links of the A259 and A21 plus mainline train stations with direct links to London, Brighton and Tunbridge Wells. Within these areas we cover there are cinemas, shopping centres, restaurants and country walks.

The property market has grown steadily in recent years over and above national average, largely due to numbers of people moving from London, a growing buy to let market as well as the many improvements and investments on the seafront, the new pier, Old Town and university. Hastings offers the full spectrum of prices from flats at £80,000 to larger family houses in excess of £500,000 and everything in between. We are therefore confident that Hastings truly offers a home for everybody.

Hastings boasts a wide range of residents, from the young First Time Buyer to the retired couples and all families in between. We have a wealth of people who have moved from London, either permanently, for quality of life or for holiday homes.

Steeped in history Hastings is famous for its Old Town with its active fishing industry, Smugglers Caves. John Logie Baird lived here and of course the Battle of Hastings in 1066 is one of our countries most famous historical event.

Hastings was predominantly a Victorian town and boasts some wonderful architecture. The original Old Town dates back to the 14th Century, offering some of the oldest houses in the country. A large proportion of St Leonards was designed by the world famous Burton Family who was made up of James and his son Decimus, who between them developed the Holiday resort that we enjoy today.

The prices compared to the national average are very competitive, so properties to rent or buy don't tend to stay on the market for long.

The rental market in Hastings and St Leonards has grown greatly over the last few years, due largely to the huge increase in Buy to Let investors purchasing properties to offer to the increasing numbers of keen tenants. With rents of around £450pcm for a one bed flat to £1200pcm for large family home, Hastings offers good value for money for such a nice place to live.

Hastings town offers many top stores in the Priory Meadow shopping centre, whilst a wealth of independent specialist shops and many restaurants can be found in The Old Town.

Hasting has an ever increasing artistic flair and has The Stade which houses the new Jerwood Gallery, which was completed in 2012. Top acts regularly visit the White Rock Theatre including a top Pantomime every year.

Alexandra Park is a beautifully landscaped Victorian park located near the centre of the town. There are four railway stations within the town, three of which are mainline to London.
