Tide and Time, Plum Guide home in West Sussex, UK

Click to book Tide and Time now: from £550 per night Step into this coastal home in East Preston and feel the outside world disappear. Enter through the charming front door and find a bright living space with light driftwood floorboards, walls and furnishings, plus bi-folding doors that bathe the open concept interior in natural Sussex sunshine. This rustic space is a nod to the sea, with a plethora of nautical touches, porthole mirrors, and even a blackboard with high and low tide timings. You’ll breeze from outdoor to indoor, kicking back in the chill-out room with a good book or a game of table football, enjoying your morning coffee on the patio, or drifting off in the hammock. When you’re not relaxing in the garden, stroll down to the idyllic pebble beach, just a 5-minute walk from the home. After a day of seaside fun, retreat to a warm and cosy living room, snuggle up round the wood burning stove in the colder evenings and unwind with family or friends amid the soothing surroundings. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms

The Centurion

The Centurion, Plum Guide home in Brighton, UK

Click to book The Centurion now: from £190 per night A town of unique architecture, brisk sea air, two iconic piers, quirky shops, and a truly embracing culture, Brighton is one of the most exciting and charming places to visit in the UK. Even more so, when you're staying in a beautiful, 100-year-old Art Deco building close to the seafront. While the building retains many of its 1920s features, this flat is wholly modern, decked out in stylish, contemporary decor. Relax in the stylish living room or gather together for a celebratory meal in the dining area. Step through the main room's glass door and onto a private, south-facing balcony - ideal for sipping on a sundowner cocktail and looking out to sea before an evening out on the town. With two extremely comfortable bedrooms - each boasting a king-size bed - and a bathroom with a large tub, this is a perfect base for a relaxing stay in Southern England’s most vibrant seaside city. The famous Brighton pebble beach is a short two-minute stroll away and the independent shops on North Laine are walkable in ten. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom

Vanity Flair

Vanity Flair, Plum Guide home in East Sussex, UK

Click to book Vanity Flair now: from £750 per night The elegance of this five-storey townhouse along Brighton’s fashionable Portland Place evokes the glamour of the Regency era. It’s been immaculately restored, and the giant sash windows, wrought-iron balconies, soaring ceilings and marble fireplaces feel rightfully opulent. Yet this 200-year-old home is also a place of 21st-century tech. In the basement you’ll find a home cinema with 2.5-metre screen and Dolby Digital surround sound for brilliant nights in. Add to this the plush velvet sofas, cloud-like beds, roll-top baths and a sparkling kitchen finished in white marble (one of two kitchens in fact), and this home feels extremely indulgent. Families and friends will love it here, and since all beds are split kings, the sleeping arrangements are flexible. Located in fashionable Kemp Village, a pebble’s throw from Brighton Beach, the home is also excellently placed for eating out, drinking and exploring. In just 15 minutes you could be licking ice creams on Brighton’s pier or admiring more Regency architecture in town. Sleeps up to 16 | 5 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms

The Vines

The Vines, Plum Guide home in East Sussex, UK

The Vines, Plum Guide home in East Sussex, UK

Click to book The Vines now: from £180 per night Set in a modern building on a more traditional street, The Vines stands out in more ways the one. Helen’s hosting is really impressive, and the care that she’s put into the interior design here is obvious from the get-go. The surrounding area, known as North Laine, is a hub of independent artists, curiosity shops and cafes, so staying here really feels like you are experiencing the ‘real’ Brighton. It’s also very central, so not only does that make getting around very simple, but it’s also very easy to reach from London. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Bread & Butter

Bread & Butter, Plum Guide home in West Sussex, UK

Bread & Butter, Plum Guide home in West Sussex, UK

Click to book Bread & Butter now: from £200 per night This former bakery has plenty of character and charm, making it a solid option for an escape to West Sussex. Built in the 1800s, it's been well maintained, renovated to a high standard and tastefully decorated throughout. We loved the original features (like the sash windows, fireplaces and bakers’ oven); good-size modern kitchen, with a central island for chatting over a glass of wine; king-size beds with crisp, fresh linens; and the sweet courtyard garden: a real little sun trap. The home's location, right in the heart of the town of Arundel, gives easy access to coffee shops, pubs and independent shops – particularly for those who love browsing for art and antiques – as well as stunning views over the famous castle as well. You’re just a few minutes drive to great spots on the South Coast – less than 20 to Worthing; 40 into Brighton – making this a great spot, whether you're into sightseeing or just atmospheric and cosy places to stay. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
