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

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

The Grand Hastings

The Grand Hastings, Plum Guide home in East Sussex, UK

Click to book The Grand Hastings now: from £950 per night Perched on a picturesque promenade, this Victorian beach villa is just 30 metres from the sandy shores and boasts views for days overlooking the sea. Once home to a boutique hotel, the house is now a holiday rental that features all ensuite bedrooms with spa-like bathrooms offering REN toiletries. The large reception living areas reveal plenty of space for large groups to socialise together – meet for cocktails in the bar area, or gather around one of the big screens for a movie night in. We particularly love the quirky dining room which seats up to eighteen guests – ideal for hosting dinner parties and celebrating special occasions. Relax out in the terrace garden on a sunny day for a barbecue or soak in the hot tub. Once you've taken everything in from inside the home, step out of the front door and lap up the never-ending esplanade that stretches in either direction across the beachfront. Whether you prefer walking, running or cycling, it's an idyllic spot for taking in the fresh sea air. As you saunter around the local neighbourhood of St Leonards you'll find an array of cafes, pubs and restaurants within easy reach. If you're a keen walker, make sure to fit in a trip to the Protected Hastings Country Park, which unveils clifftop walking routes and unrivalled views along the coast to the medieval village of Rye – nearly 12 miles away. Sleeps up to 16 | 8 Bedrooms | 8 Bathrooms

1066 and All That

1066 and All That, Plum Guide home in Hastings, East Sussex, UK

1066 and All That, Plum Guide home in Hastings, East Sussex, UK

Click to book 1066 and All That now: from £225 per night On England’s beautiful south coast, this home resides in the heart of the old town of Hastings. The town has been a settlement for over 1200 years and gave its name to the battle that took place after William the Conqueror’s invasion of 1066. With so much history in the local area, it's fitting that your home feels like a nod to the past, too. With original features, such as the old fireplace and wooden floorboards, it's decorated like a bohemian artist’s den with unique oddities and idiosyncrasies in every room — though if you're not a fan of taxidermy, you might want to sit this one out. However, behind all of this eccentricity, you'll find a beautiful property full of comfortable stylish touches. Prepare a delicious meal in the rustic country kitchen before gathering around the dining table to eat, perhaps with the log-burner crackling in the background. Come evening, nothing will beat an indulgent soak in the freestanding clawfoot tub, while you also have your own private patio garden that's positively teeming with greenery. When you want to venture outside, the beautiful buildings of Hastings’ old town – including antique shops, pubs and seafood shops – are all around, and the sandy beach is just a short, eight-minute walk away, too. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom
