A wonderful country park with excellent panoramic views of the coast. Walking up the hills is not a good idea if you have a heart condition. Beware of the cliffs - gravity can be a killer

This country park is large at 660 acres and was " opened " in 1974. Elevated position with nature at its best. Nice to get high up with excellent sea veiws and walk in a great Park.

A long stablished Country Park with many improvements in recent years. There are surfaced paths suitable for buggies and wheel chairs . Plenty of seats and picnic tables. Lots of open space for all sorts of games. The views are spectacular. High Above the sea you can see Winchelsea, Rye and on a clear day Dungeoness. For The adventurous there... More

I go for a run there, on the edge of the cliffs. Lovely place to clear your head and start a day. I love it.

Visited this place a few times, it is just soooo lovely. Great views over the Channel. There are routes for every one, from really steep ones to easy ones. Benches everywhere to take it all in and have a rest. If you are lucky you meet some of the free roaming ponies. Great place!

We walked from the Firehills in Fairlight across to the East Hills in Hastings. Quite a challenging walk of about 4 miles, as you are usually either going up a hill or down one. The scenery was beautiful, and I would say that it would be worth visiting in all four seasons to see the changing natural beauty throughout the... More

On a mid January morning I drove up to the car park with great expectations for a challenging,but rewarding walk. As it happens,the next 3 hours did not disappoint.I pulled into the near empty Shearbarn Holiday Park and on joining the path,I was greeted with a quagmire track that,without Wellies was nye on impossible to follow safely. However, I was... More

We came here in the summer of 2016, we used the lift to get up and down here. There are steps but a lot of steep ones so would not recommend them for older people. It is beautiful up here, a little windy but that's to be expected. We went on a clear day and had spectacular views. People were... More
