Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Taking its name from the pretty Maplehurst Woods which surrounds it, residents at Woodlands View can easily enjoy the wealth of nature trails and countryside from their own doorstep.

Steeped in the history of its famous maritime past, Hastings formed one of the five medieval Cinque Ports, in Kent and East Sussex, originally created for military and trade purposes.

Although the original harbour was destroyed in the Great Storm of 1287, when the cliff and half of Hastings Castle fell into the sea, the town retained its thriving fishing industry and is today home to one of the largest beach-launched fishing fleets in Europe.

Built by William the Conqueror as a stronghold during the Battle of Hastings in 1066, Hastings Castle has more recently converted into a popular tourist attraction, allowing visitors to tour its battlements.

The bustling seaside community of Hastings also boasts a charming Old Town area, where original architecture has been carefully preserved and is also home to a strong local arts community.

Slightly further afield to Woodlands View, at the top of the East Hill, is Hastings Country Park, comprising 660 acres of ancient woodland, grassland and heathland which stretches across five miles of exposed cliffs and rugged countryside. You can reach the park by taking the East Hill Lift, the steepest funicular railway in Britain.

Less than half a mile away Sandhurst Recreation Park is perfect for sports fans, boasting numerous football pitches, a cricket pitch and a pavilion.

The jewel in Hasting’s crown, however, is the award-winning Pelham Beach, offering families a wealth of waterborne activities with the opportunity for sunbathing and swimming in the summer months and windswept walks in the winter.

The seafront or Stade area of Hastings is home to The Fishermen's Museum, one of the most visited attractions in East Sussex and the Jerwood Gallery, housing a collection of 20th and 21st century British art.

Hastings Pier, once a landmark of the town, was severely damaged by fire in 2010 and is currently undergoing a £14m renovation project. Once the work is completed, the Pier will add film festivals and farmers’ markets to the mix, enhancing this vibrant community further still.

Further attractions include:
• The Priory Meadow Shopping Centre which incorporates a host of high street names and designer stores under one roof.
• White Rock Theatre, which presents a varied programme of touring shows including opera, ballet, musicals and children's shows.
• Blue Reef Aquarium, which lets you get up close and personal with an array of exciting sea creatures.
• Alexandra Park, which stretches for 2.5 miles and includes ancient woodland, a boating lake, bowls green, numerous gardens, a nature reserve, tennis courts and an adventure playground.

Local Shopping

Woodlands View is ideally placed to make the most of the wealth of amenities nearby, with a number of local convenience stores, a large Sainsbury’s supermarket and The Robert de Mortain public house all within easy reach.

Nearby Hastings town centre offers many further shopping and leisure opportunities and is really three towns in one; the Old Town to the east, the bustling contemporary shopping town centre in the middle and St Leonards to the west which is home to the fashionable Norman Road – named the new ‘Portobello Road-on sea’ by The Times.

The Old Town embraces a charming mix of half-timbered houses, narrow streets and passageways, locally known as ‘Twittens’, where you will find artisan shops, gourmet food and modern art.


Ideal for families, there’s a wealth of excellent private and state schools in and around Hastings. Situated on The Ridge, just minutes from Woodlands View, Helenswood Academy is an all-girls secondary school with state-of-the-art facilities and an excellent sports centre.

Claremont School in St Leonards-on-Sea is a mainstream independent school for pupils aged 2 to 13, whilst Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School in Hastings is a highly rated state primary.

Vinehall, in nearby Robertsbridge is a co-educational independent preparatory school set in 47 acres of parkland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

About Developer

Millwood Designer Homes builds a broad range of individually designed homes from contemporary styled apartments to more traditional two and three storey homes.

The company is renowned for its large properties that are modelled on the traditional 15th and 16th century Yeoman-style farmhouses, once so common in the Kent and Sussex Weald. Millwood is able to plan these types of homes to sit alongside other designs so they all blend together within a sympathetic street scene.

Many new Millwood Designer homes combine period charm with all the benefits of the latest advances in construction and energy-efficient technology.

Traditional exteriors belie the more contemporary interiors, whilst cottage style homes, as well as Georgian facades are becoming more and more prevalent in Millwood’s portfolio.

Millwood Designer Homes is based in Tonbridge, Kent and its exclusive developments can be found in country, town, village and waterside locations throughout Kent, Sussex and Surrey.

By ensuring that all landscaping is sympathetic to the environment and that natural features and existing planting are retained whenever possible, the company enhances the rural aspects of any regenerated brownfield land. Millwood also strives to use reclaimed bricks at many of its schemes to embellish the traditional design.

Millwood’s continued policy of combining all that is best in local architectural history with the latest in modern technology and innovation has won the company many prestigious awards.
