As seen on TV! Comfort and glamour personified, this central Brighton large group holiday home is fabulously located. What an opportunity to stay in Grade II listed regency town house with sea views for your weekend in Brighton! Moments from the beach and a short walk along the seafront to all the action of the city centre.

Great as a base for a visit to Brighton, this fantastic property which has been freshly re-decorated for 2016 is situated in the heart of fashionable Kemp Town, just across the road from the seafront. Local brasseries, antique shops, trendy coffee houses, pubs and restaurants are just around the corner and it’s a short stroll to the centre of Brighton. The property was built in about 1826 with its original Stucco style exterior and regency porch.

The owners have taken great care to create a stylish boutique home from...

Just got back from a hen weekend for 20 people. Lovely house. Lots of tiny stairs to go up and down to get to the rooms. One floor has no bathroom on it but all others have. Very nicely decorated and accommodated all 20 of us well. Very near to everything and not far from train station. Had to pay...
