Kloofs Local Area

Situated in rural East Sussex, Kloofs is only two miles from the beach at Cooden, and is ideally situated for visits to historic Hastings (8 miles), Battle (6 miles) and Eastbourne (11 miles).


By Foot


Our local village, Little Common, can be accessed by a footpath from the site. This walk can be by road and path or over fields, and takes approximately 30 minutes. In Little Common you will find most of what you will need on a daily basis - mini supermarket, bakers, butchers, bank, cash points, take away outlets/restaurants (Fish & Chips, Chinese, Thai, Indian) and the local pub, The Wheatsheaf. More information is available on our tourist information notice boards at Reception.


Alternatively, there are footpaths that lead off the Park to Highwoods, a nature conservation wood with a small lake. The wood is managed by enthusiasts that work at making the wood friendly for walkers, pushchair/wheelchair users, horse riding, and is a marvellous place for walking your dog.


By Bus or by Train


The nearest bus stop, with services to Bexhill, Hastings and Eastbourne, is about a mile away in Little Common or on the A259 at the end of Barnhorn Road. The nearest train station is Cooden Beach where you can get services along the south coast, east to Bexhill and Hastings, or west to Eastbourne. From Hastings or Eastbourne, you can get a connecting service to places around the County and into London.
