How can you be steps away from Brighton's buzzing North Laine and yet feel tucked away in peace at the same time? This gem is in a truly enviable position – off the road and down what's called a 'twitten'. The path leads to your Regency period home, recently refurbished and raring to go.
Perfect for a group of friends or family on a trip to the Great British Seaside, some of the home's original features are there for the lovers of character, while the whole house has been modernised and decorated in contemporary white – pops of colour coming from the dramatic wall art. With three main bedrooms, there's plenty of room to sleep six, with the sofa bed in the snug adding the possibility of another two guests.
After a day exploring Brighton's excellent shopping, paddling on the beach and playing on the pier, it's central enough for you to nip back home to freshen up before dinner – you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out and nightlife nearby. And in the morning, take your cup of coffee outside for some fresh air in the pretty courtyard garden. Peaceful and private (apart from the gulls), you'd never know you were in the centre of it all.
