The South East England region
Brighton is the liveliest, most cosmopolitan resort in the UK situated on the south coast and with a splendid backdrop of the downs hills. The architecture is largely in a grand regency style and the centrepiece of town is the famous Brighton pavilion with its exotic, royal history.
Dotted around the region are old Sussex villages with their quintessential English pubs, stately homes such as Glyndebourne famous for its summer concerts and castles such as Arundel and Lewes.
There are numerous days out to be had from Brighton such as by train to London, by ferry over to France, up to Legoland, Thorpe Park or Drusillas for the children or for some antique shop browsing in Lewes.
Brighton and Hove
Tara Mist is in a relaxing village yet only minutes into Brighton town centre. Brighton is a fascinating town which is extremely fashionable yet also quirky at the same time. The Lanes area is made up of cobbled streets with tiny 'tardis style' shops selling just about anything you can think of. The restaurant and cafe scene is on a par with London and culture just oozes from every theatre and gallery. At the same time, Brighton is a beach resort with people swimming and sunbathing and it also has the largest Marina in the UK.
You can walk down to the Marina from Tara Mist along the coastal path and find plenty going on. There are great places to eat out next to the yachts, shopping, nightclubs, a casino, bowling, cinema and frequent organised events such as power-boat racing, comedy week etc.
As Tara Mist is right on the seaside edge of the Downs, there are fabulous walks in all directions. It's a great combination - the liveliness of Brighton very close by but with a real feeling of tranquillity at the house.

"Great house with seaviews amongst the countryside"
my wife and 3 young kids stayed here and thought the house was great! clean, neat and all the modern amenities, backyard big enough to kick a ball around and games shed plus with a view of the nearby sea and still nestled amongst the rolling hills made it a great location.
5 min walk to the beach, corner shop up the road and massive array of shops, bars, restaurants, cinema and HUGE supermarket at the nearby marina (5 min drive).
Still close enough to enjoy the benefits of Brighton but far enough to be enjoy the tranquil suroundings and occasional neigh/bah from the horses/sheep across the hill.
would easily take 6-8 quests with off street parking in a quiet street and would recommend this to anyone!!

"Great location and booking process"
We went away for a friends weekend and everything was really easy to book. Katherine was quick in response and everything was as instructed. Deposit was also returned quickly.
The property is very nice and good size for a group. Good kitchen, all mod cons (ipod dock, wifi etc) and a great terrace. All that was missing was the sun!
