Destination guide

Make memories in Hove holiday lettings

Hove conjures up images of English seaside holidaying. It's all there – Neapolitan ice cream-coloured shacks lined in neat rows along the promenade, the scents of salt and vinegar issuing from the traditional chippies, the long stretches of pebbly beach sloshed by the white wash of the Channel. In 1997, the place was joined to its near neighbour of Brighton, creating a happening city of LGBTQ festivals and jumping nightclubs, regal Victorian architecture and charming tearooms. Hove holiday rentals mean a base in the middle of all that, not to mention within striking distance of the gorgeous South Downs National Park.


Historic sites near Hove holiday homes

Hove is steeped in rich history that’s showcased in various historic sites. Holiday homes can be found near places like St Andrew’s Church, an Anglican church with elaborate architecture and a long history, and the Goldstone Local Geological Site, a landmark with geological significance in Hove’s history. You could also visit the Brighton Palace Pier, an iconic 19th-century landmark and entertainment centre with bars, restaurants and sea views.

Things to do

Sightseeing near Hove holiday lettings

Start by getting to grips with the history of Hove itself. That comes courtesy of the Hove Museum and Art Gallery. Housed in a gorgeous villa dating from the late 19th century, Brooker Hall, it's laden with curious teddy bears and cinema artifacts that chronicle the town's tale since the early 1800s. More family fun is on the menu for those who bag Hove holiday rentals close to Brighton Pier – think twinkling arcade games and scream-inducing roller coasters. Those with a penchant for wild walks and nature might prefer somewhere near the South Downs National Park, where trails abound.


Things to do near Hove holiday homes

While the Brighton half of Brighton and Hove might have all the best blowouts – think Brighton Pride, Brighton Fringe, Brighton Festival – Hove is a place for some more low-key pursuits. A wander through the Italianate reaches of Adelaide Crescent is one for the architecture lovers, while the whole esplanade along the coast is a medley of cafes and chip shops for sipping brews and enjoying traditional English grub. There are also volleyball courts, running tracks and room for biking by the pebbles for those who want to stay active.


Local weather for your stay in Hove holiday homes

Hove follows the same weather patterns as the rest of East Sussex and this corner of the English South Coast. With its breezy seaside summers, it manages to draw most folk to the promenades and beaches between June and August – typically in line with UK school breaks. For a quieter time exploring the local architecture, spring – in April and May – or autumn – in September and October – should be perfect. They are also fine times to lace up the boots and hit the South Downs.

Natural features

Docked between pebbles and downs in Hove

The whole of Brighton and Hove is famed for its long stretch of pebbly beachfront, sitting in the East Sussex coastline between the fish and chip shacks and the rolling English Channel. But Hove holiday rentals on the seafront aren't the only ones with front-row views over handsome nature. There are also cottages to be found in the charming reaches of the South Downs National Park. That means a land of rolling hills, quaint English villages and even dramatic chalk cliffs, rising like whitewashed walls from the sands, like at Seven Sisters, for example.
