Situated under a 30-minute drive from the coastline of Brighton, this holiday home is within easy reach of the hustle and bustle of the city with all its entertainment, shopping and restaurants, but far enough away for some peace and tranquility. Brighton is a treasure trove of things to do and places to go. Vibrant, colourful and fun, Brighton offers the energy of the city and freedom of the sea. It really is unique. From the stunning heritage of the Royal Pavilion, Regency architecture and Victorian aquariums to the seaside fun of Brighton Pier, the Brighton Wheel and the famous pebble beach. Brighton offers something for every walk of life.
For those who love browsing, it's a treat to explore the Lanes in Brighton with their quirky shops and boutiques. The main shopping area of Churchill Square is only a stone's throw away. Brighton is renowned for its culture, with the Theatre Royal and the Brighton Dome there is an abundance of entertainment. Each May, England's 'city on the edge' hosts three packed weeks of prestigious premieres, international commissions, daring collaborations and memorable performances from the worlds of dance, music, theatre, visual arts, books and outdoor spectacle.
The coast is little more than 30 minutes away with Brighton and the famous Royal Pavilion, Hastings, home to the largest beach based fishing fleet in Britain and Eastbourne with a seafront promenade virtually leading straight on to the foot of the beautiful South Downs and Beachy Head. If you fancy a theatre trip, London is less than an hour away from Eridge Station or if you are feeling adventurous visit Dieppe the prettiest of the French Channel Ports, and a well worth a visit from Newhaven Port, 30 minutes away.
