Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Two of the main draws to life at Stone Cross Gate are the rolling Sussex countryside and a string of beaches, including nearby Pevensey Bay.

Being only five miles from Eastbourne, it’s easy to explore the town’s Victorian pier and promenade, gardens and theatres, or to relax in the cafés and restaurants of The Waterfront. Brighton, around a 45-minute drive from Stone Cross Gate, has a thriving nightlife and entertainment scene, with countless eateries, clubs, bars, plus the Brighton Centre, which hosts major concerts, comedy acts and theatre.

If you love the great outdoors, there’s Willingdon Golf Club, one of a number of courses in the area, and scenic country walks around Lullington Heath National Nature Reserve, part of the South Downs National Park. Sharnfold Farm, about a 15-minute walk from your door, has a children’s play area, a farm trail, a fishing lake and fruit picking.

You could step into history at Pevensey Castle, where William the Conqueror landed in 1066, as its medieval walls and D-shaped towers are almost on your doorstep. Explore imposing Herstmonceux Castle, around a 15-minute drive away, which once housed the Royal Observatory and is surrounded by a picturesque moat and gardens. You can also reach the seafront and battle sites of Hastings in around half an hour by car.

Local Shopping

There are plenty of retail opportunities in Stone Cross and beyond, whether you’re after groceries, gardening supplies or the biggest high street fashion brands.

For the weekly food shop, there’s a Tesco Express less than half a mile from your door with customer parking. Langney Shopping Centre, which you can reach in five minutes or so by car, has two supermarkets, a bakery and other high street stores – along with a library and a twice-weekly market. The Stone Cross Garden Centre is also only moments away, for any plants or gardening equipment and advice you may need.

A 10-minute drive takes you to the Asda Eastbourne Superstore at The Crumbles Retail Park, where a number of other major retailers are based. Also in Eastbourne, the Arndale Centre combines over 60 high street names, including fashion and accessories brands, health and beauty stores, and leading homeware and electrical names.

Slightly further afield, Churchill Square brings together 80 stores under one roof close to the seafront in Brighton. It stands right beside the historic alleys of the Lanes district, a treasure trove of cafés and independent boutiques offering an altogether different shopping experience.

Transport Links

The nearest station to Stone Cross Gate is Pevensey & Westham Station, which stands just off the High Street in neighbouring Westham, less than a mile and a half from your door.

From there, you can reach London Victoria via Clapham Junction – with many direct trains that take around an hour and 45 minutes, and departures throughout the day. You’ll also find less frequent services into London Bridge and Charing Cross Stations, which mostly require a change and take around two hours.

The nearest major regional and international airport to Stone Cross Gate is Gatwick. You can arrive in around 70 minutes on the hourly train from Pevensey & Westham Station, while driving via the A27 and A23 takes approximately the same amount of time. If you’re crossing to the Continent, the Ferry Terminal at Newhaven is around 30 minutes by car, and offers two or three timetabled daily crossings to and from Dieppe, depending on the season.

Major roads easily accessible from the development include the A27 for Brighton, Worthing, Chichester and
Portsmouth, and the A22 which takes you into London.
