Brighton is the ultimate destination for a vibrant city break by the sea and The Birdcage is situated in the heart of city, The South Lanes. This district is world famous for stylish shopping; from the jewelery quarter to the hippest fashion and vintage boutiques. It's also has the best night spots, bars and restaurants on it's doorstep, with Jamie Oliver's latest addition, 'Jamie's Italian', opening just around the corner from The Birdcage. The city is buzzing all year round so a great spot for a weekend break away any time, any season.

Book the Birdcage and enjoy the trappings of a Boutique hotel with the exclusivity of a private home. Perfectly situated, the house is less than a minute walk from the beach and vibrant seafront attractions. For culture vultures The Royal Pavilion is less than a 5 minute walk away, along with The Theatre Royal, The Corn exchange, The Dome and The Brighton Museum.

The property is perfect for groups of friends, shopping trips or girly-get-togethers. For larger groups the terraced house is next door to Smugglers Retreat (also listed on holidaylettings) and the two can be booked together for larger groups of up to 16 which is popular with discerning hen do's or groups of friends down to enjoy Brighton's infamous night life.

The Birdcage, is amongst the oldest houses in Brighton dating back to 1565. However the property has been decorated to a contemporary high standard with the latest technology including i-pod docks and wifi. Each room is packed with designer details, decorative wallpapers, and lavish accessories making it a truly original and stylish place to stay. Each bedroom has a different exotic theme, while the double shower wet-room is decorated in mirrored wallpaper and canary yellow tiles.

This is the ideal place to base yourself and step out in style for the best that Brighton has to offer.

The three double bedroom cottage comprises of an open plan living room with two sofa’s – one of which is a double sofa bed for groups larger than 6 people.

The open plan micro kitchen is fully equipped.

There is no dining room, but with the best of Brighton's restaurants on your doorstep you really won’t want to stay in to cook, but there is everything you need for preparing a simple meal or takeaway on laps.

On the first floor there is a double bedroom with basin.

Separate wet-room with twin showers, basin and WC, underfloor heating.

On the second floor a further two bedrooms, one with basin. These bedrooms have zip and link beds which can be arranged as twin rooms or king size doubles.

Due to the age of the property the doorways and staircases are unusually narrow. Sorry, no disabled access.

Further details outdoors

There is a small outside covered terrace, but no furniture.

The terrace can be connected to give access to the next door property, Smugglers Retreat, - should you book both.

The cottage is located down an old twitten lane (pedestrian alley way).

The nearest carparking is available on the adjacent street

Further details

Welcome pack sent prior to arrival, with arrival details and local knowledge.

Sorry- No Stag Do's

The property does not come with free parking although there are plenty of carparks in the immediate area.

The central location means the area can be noisy at night, especially during summer weekends. Therefore we have supplied each room with complimentary ear plugs for light sleepers.

The South East England region

Bursting with beach-front sports and events, tranquil green spaces within the city limits, plus Brighton tourist attractions and activities for all the family, there's so much in store just waiting to be explored.

You'll also find a world of beautiful Sussex countryside, castles, country houses, parks, forts and gardens just moments from the city too!

Brighton and Hove

From iconic Brighton tourist attractions to beach-front cool, Brighton is a treasure trove of things to do and places to go. Vibrant, colourful, fun and free, 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 traditional seaside fun of the famous Brighton Pier and pebble beach, Brighton offers something for every walk of life.

"Great location and a great little house, I would highly recommend The Birdcage"

We stayed here for 6 nights whilst attending a conference in Brighton. We arrived late on the Friday but this was accommodated and we were met with the keys at the house.
Perfect location for exploring the lanes, the seafront, and the bars and restaurants Brighton has on offer.
The house was a bit smaller than we imagined. This was not a problem as there were 5 of us but I think 8 would be a squeeze.
All in all though, an excellent house in a great location with really helpful people running it.
We will definitely be back.
