    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 8
    Lanes location: This stunning & unique cottage is the oldest house in Brighton, dating back to 1565.
    Inspired by Victorian Alice in Wonderland with charming references to playing cards, key holes and looking glasses and every little luxury thought of... The bedrooms are soft and tactile with glistening wallpapers, silky bed throws, retro lamps and vintage accessories. It's the perfect choice for a visit to Brighton with the vibrant seafront, Jamie's Italian & other great restaurants only around the corner. Proving very popular with posh hen parties & girly get-togethers, it really is one of a kind and the very best of the city is all on your doorstep!
