The South East England region
East Sussex offers a large choice of activity. From sailing to climbing, walking and golf, there is plenty to do for people of all ages. This region is the closest to mainland Europe and as a consequence of this tends to enjoy much warmer summers than most areas of the UK . Brighton is easily the most dynamic city in the region enjoying a fabulous setting on the edge of the South Downs nature reserve and south coast.
Brighton started out life as a small fishing town. However as London became increasingly polluted the wealthy came down seeking the healing properties of its waters and clean air. So the development of the town began. When Royalty arrived there was no looking back. The village, now a city, oozes history and displays fabulous architecture . You cannot miss the Royal Pavilion as you enter the city and the Lanes shopping area is a must for those out to spend spend spend.
Brighton and Hove
Within walking distance from Crescent Lodge you can take advantage of Brighton Marina where you may go sailing, power boating or fishing. Maybe take advantage of any of the many other activities. Maybe you would rather sit sipping a coffee and watch the world go by.
You will also find a large cinema complex at the marina and bars and restaurants buzzing with life at all times of the day.
On your doorsteps you have all those handy amenities such as Butchers, Bakers, Delis, Post office, Bank and mini-supermarket.
The famous and iconic Palace Pier juts magnificently out to sea just 10 minutes from your door. On from here and you are just 5 more minutes from the Royal Pavilion. Then on again from here by 10 minutes and you are in the Lanes.These really do buzz with excitement. The sort of excitement one can only experience where so many independent shops are allowed to thrive. Flea markets and antique shops abound in Brighton. There really is something here for everyone.
This dynamic town really does offer an eclectic mix of enjoyment that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
There are many festivals and events in Brighton all year round including those for food, comedy, music and art.
Perhaps the largest of these is Gay Pride with its fabulous carnival atmosphere.
Food is always on the menu in Brighton and you will not be disappointed by the immense choice available from all round the world. Stroll along the seafront with traditional fish and chips by day and indulge yourself with fine dining at the Cotes Brasserie by night.
The aquarium ,actually the oldest in the UK, and the Brighton toy and model museum with two very large toy train sets make for a fascinating visit for all . Maybe finish off your day with a spot of crazy golf or try your luck in the arcades of slot machines and games.
Further afield but not too far there is the delightful Bluebell steam railway tracking through beautiful countryside. Middle farm with its 150 varieties of cider and meade and the town of Lewes with exceptional choice for those searching antiques and curios.

"An absolutely gorgeous house, the perfect classy hen do setting"
We've just come back from the most amazing weekend staying at the Crescent Lodge - 10 of us stayed there for my friend's hen do. I had really high hopes from all the pictures as it looked so beautiful but it wasn't until I walked in the door and that first step on the parquet flooring that I knew I'd struck gold! It has such an amazing feeling to the house, it was even better than the photos made it out to be - so many gorgeous antiques everywhere, spacious, warm and Alice wasn't lying when she said it was complete with everything - we found all sorts in the cupboards from real silverwear to antique napkin holders to cake stands to champagne buckets to an array of cocktail glasses....
I had planned a lot of cooking for the weekend as we wanted to spend lots of time in the house and the kitchen was a dream to work in, classic FM playing on the Bush radio, all the pots, pans and dishes one could need, dishwasher to save on the cleaning up after... The house made it possible to do so many amazing things, we had a tea party in the drawing room, a big dinner party in the gorgeous dining room, a huge DVD collection which was perfect for Sunday morning as it was a bit damp outside, and we got to put the bride to be in the most amazing super king bed on the top floor - we couldn't get her out of it! In fact all the beds were amazingly cosy, which i think helped us all with our hangovers!
Amazing location right in Kemptown which is so gorgeous, full of antique shops and tea rooms. Just a short walk to the pier and the lanes where there's so much to do. It was a perfect location for a hen do as you don't necessarily need to plan a strict schedule of things - it's so fun just to go down to the pier for some rides, or wonder around the front and people watch, have a glass of wine by the sea, or there's lots of activities you can do last minute if they take your fancy - we went segway racing which was hilarious! Then of course there's shopping in the lanes, and no weekend is complete without fish and chips mmmm.
If you're looking for a really cool bar to go to for a night out but don't want to go anywhere really trashy or full of other hens, I'd recommend this cute bar in Kempton 5 mins walk from the house called The Black Dove, I reserved the window booth which was free and we were so looked after by the rather good looking barmen... They have different vintage nights on each night so we got to charlston the night away to some awesome speakeasy tunes, plus they do amazing cocktails, I'd recommend the MC Martinis!
We all had such a special weekend away together, and I'm so glad I found this place to do it in - it made it feel like we were princesses living the high life in our beautiful town house! It was also great inspiration for the weekend as a whole and gave it a lovely theme, I made a retro playlist to listen to, we did the tea party, and all spent ages on the saturday night getting dressed up in vintage outfits for the night out. I don't think the weekend could have been better and just want to say thank you to Alice for having us at their beautiful house!
