Fairlight – Dog Walking
Fairlight is an beautiful village in East Sussex. Around 3 miles east of Hastings. You will find Fairlight Village, Fairlight Cove, Fairlight Country park and Fairlight Hall. Fairlight – Dog Walking fun.
We tend not to walk dogs at Fairlight Cove seashore as there is no easy way to get to it. You can make your way down some rather dodgy hill sides which often are impassable or walk from Pett Level Beach at low tide. However, you must time it correctly as once hide tide arrives you will be cut off! Many naturists use the Cove.
Fairlight Country Park
Fairlight Country Park was established in 1974. There is around 650 acres just east of Hastings. It contains glens, sandstone cliffs, gorse and trees, footpaths, public toilets, nature trails and picnic areas.
We love walking our doggies here. There are lots of open spaces for the dogs run around and wooded areas for them to explore.
There are many benches sit sit at while taking in the views or having a picnic.
There are a couple of ‘Pay and Display’ car parks (£2 all day – 2017)
If you are going to use the park a lot you can buy an annual pass which covers up to two cars (from the same home).
A beautiful mock mansion is a family home build in 1850’s. Open to the public occasionally. Click here for more information Fairlight Hall.
This cute little village has a village hall that often has amateur dramatic shows, a lovely little pub and post office.
The parish church was built in 1845. The tower is 82 ft tall and is open to visitors during the summer.
Fairlight is mentioned in records of 1220 as Farlegh. William the Conquerer gave Fairlight Manor, (now known as Stonelynk Farm), to a French Countess.
Many many years ago Fanlight was used for smuggling. Contraband goods were landed at Fairlight and brought inland by a tunnel. Stream House was used by smugglers.
