This lovely studio apartment is set back from the seafront to give view to quiet back gardens while still offering a direct seaview through a twitten (Sussex expression for a small alley). It is part of a typical Regency seafront property with high ceilings and a representative entrance. The apartment is situated on the top 3rd floor and offers a great selection of games from darts to billiards. The space is newly refurbished and very clean. Bedlinen and towels are provided for two guests as standard (please let us know if a third person will stay at no extra cost so that we can accommodate them as well). Please bring your own beach towels. Across the road on St George's Rd there is a self-service laundrette.

At the end of the twitten there is a small newsagent and a convenience store with fresh fruit and veg, surrounded by further cafes, restaurants at all price ranges, pubs and take aways open day and night. The nearby Marina offers a multiplex cinema, bowling, casino and ASDA (open 24 hours) and also a range of watersport activities such as sailing or a selection of boat trips.
The heart of Brighton with its extensive nightlife, a range of theatres, all sorts of restaurants and the Pier are all a 15 minutes scenic walk along the promenade or a five minutes taxi ride away - except the popular club Concorde 2 and a well equipped playgound with water jets which are just on the adjacent beach and the refurbished Proud Cabaret Ballroom around the corner.

The South East England region
Sussex nestles on the rolling chalk hills of the South Downs National Part and along the English south coast. It is one of the sunniest places in the country! Its 80 miles of coastline means there are super beaches for the family and groups of friends. Inland you will find the characteristic English idyll of quaint villages with flint walled, thatched cottages with lovely gardens come to life. You will find in its abundance history and heritage, castles, abbeys, priories, stately homes and historic houses. There are family amusement parks and wildlife centres, museums of bygones and steam railways.
Walkers and outdoor enthusiasts will love the varied paths and bridleways and should not leave without having walked, cycled or ridden on horseback along the superb, scenic South Downs Way; taking in the majestic white cliffs at Beachy Head or its highest point at Blackdown.
Sussex boasts many cultural centres such as Brighton and Chichester to 'kiss me quick' seaside resorts of Hastings and Bognor Regis to splendid isolation such as Ashdown Forest where Winnie the Pooh played 'Pooh Sticks'.
Sussex will always lead you back to the sea where Brighton is the highlight along its coast. This city sometimes called London-by-the Sea will never fail to disappoint with its bustling nightlife, unique lifestyles, cultural and artistic and sporting traditions.
Brighton and Hove
Brighton is the vibrant cultural centre of the South coast, and is regularly called the gay capital with its open-minded and liberal take on life. This is exemplified by the Prince Regent - well known for his decadent and playful lifestyle for whom the masterpiece, the Pavillion, was built. The narrow throughfares and 'twittens' that characterise the area were built to the original medieval town plan. Explore Brighton’s history at the Fishing Museum and cultural quarter where the city's museum can be found.
A stroll out to sea will take you on Brighton's last remaining pier - one of Britains most visited free attractions, or take a ride on the Volks – England’s oldest electric railway with the halfway station just a few steps down from Brighton Bijou. In summer open top buses are one of the best ways to see Brighton and the surrounding South Downs National Park.
ARTS & CULTURE
Brighton is home to artists, designers, writers, pop stars, actors and creative people of all kinds. Perhaps that’s why the arts are so much part of everyday life here. Just walking round you will see art and sculpture on the street and beachfront, and there are galleries and studios showing up-and-coming work by local talent. Brighton is home to many street artists' work either commissioned or less 'unofficial' for those seeking a more urban feel.
In May you will catch the annual Brighton Festival and Fringe, which takes over the city as the biggest arts fiesta in England. For four weeks, tens of thousands of people come to see hundreds of events from contemporary dance and lunchtime recitals to street theatre performances and artists’ open houses. The Great Escape runs at the same time and has now become a firm favourite with new music afficionados of all styles. Throughout the year there are festivals of jazz, dance and animated theatre, heritage weekends, plays, live music, opera, fringe theatre, cinema, comedy and cabaret - come in October to catch the spectacular White Night Festival and in December the Burning of the Clocks Parade - just two of our favourites.
Just out of Brighton you will find Glyndebourne for opera lovers and the Charleston Book festival.
The Brighton and Hove / Kemptown area
A sparkling mix of sea, city, contemporary and history makes Brighton a perfect break at any time of year. There’s elegant Regency architecture, museums and galleries, great shopping, stylish cafés, bars and restaurants, cool nightlife, arts and theatre – and all the fun of the seaside,
If you do come by car, there is some on-street metered parking to the right of the property on the seafront - currently £5 per 24 hours (as of December 2012).
