You have got lucky with the excellent advice above, Gardener 164. ( I wonder who the other 163 are?)
Although a permeable artificial windbreak might be best I would not trust myself to construct it well enough to stand Beachy Head!
I like the suggestions for hedges including sea buckthorn - but don't let it run!
I wonder about escallonia as a nice hedge. The difficulty in suggesting plants is to know ones that grow well on your site and my suggestion is a little frost tender. It sometimes helps to walk around and find out what plants grow well in your area.
