Gorgeous ground floor 1-bed apartment in the heart of Brighton's famous Lanes!
This bright & spacious ground floor flat is right in the heart of The Lanes - ideal for both holiday and corporate lets. Sleeping up to 4 people, this spacious pad oozes colour and style throughout its 45 square meters with large open plan living space, designer bathroom, snazzy bedroom with king size bed and private outside terrace.
This spacious ground floor apartment on Ship Street occupies the whole ground floor of Gordon House - a beautiful Grade 2 listed building we bought and restored back in 2011. Ship Street Gardens, a beautiful & ancient twitten, runs along its north side (twitten is an old Sussex word meaning ‘lane'). There are 4 other apartments in the building which we also let out.
The entrance door to this flat is off a communal entrance hall with entry phone system. A bright corridor with shuttered widows connects the living space at the front with the bathroom, bedroom and terrace at the rear.
The large open plan living space has a double aspect and offers ample space for cooking, eating, working and relaxing. The white gloss kitchen comes fully loaded with halogen hob, fan oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle, coffee machine and dishwasher. There are enough plates, glasses and crockery for 6 people with enough saucepans and cooking utensils to host an episode of 'Come Dine With Me’. The feature kitchen island comes with two bar stools, power points for laptops and cool pendant lights above. Next is the dining table with 4 chairs (+ 2 extra fold aways). The rest of the space is home to a leather corner sofa (which pulls out to make a comfy double bed), an armchair and a side board with a massive 46” HD Smart TV on top that's connected to a soundbar with Bluetooth connectivity. There’s also a DVD player and a selection of classic movies in the cupboard below. Guests can also enjoy free access to our Netflix account via the TV.
There’s a utility cupboard off the entrance hall with washer/dryer, iron & ironing board, vacuum cleaner and drying rack. Next door is the cool designer bathroom with P-shaped shower bath with power shower above and a separate hand shower if using the bath. There’s also a basin on a vanity unit and a WC. Complimentary 'Duck Island' shampoo, shower gel and hand soap are also provided in lovely little pump dispensers.
The bedroom at the rear of the flat has double glazed windows and is dominated by a king size bed with a huge bespoke leather headboard. A large wardrobe area is behind sliding mirror doors with a small chest of drawers inside. There’s also a dressing table and even a wall mounted TV (with DVD player). A double glazed door leads out on to the private terrace with table and 4 chairs.
We have let this holiday apartment out for the past 4 years through a local holiday let specialist but now we have decided to take the plunge and do it all ourselves here and on Airbnb.
Other things to note:
(1) STREET NOISE AT WEEKENDS: If you’re looking for total peace and quiet, please be aware that we are right in the centre of Brighton’s Old Town and it can get quiet noisy out on the streets around our building throughout Friday and Saturday nights. All of this is beyond our control - however, our prices do reflect this fact as similar apartments in Brighton rent for over £100/night. That said, the bedroom does has double glazing and we even provide ear plugs for the really light sleepers. In reality, you are far more likely to be disturbed by Brighton’s seagull population who never seem to sleep!
(2) HOME SAFETY: We are professional landlords and as such you can be assured that the whole building (containing five apartments all of which we own) meets all current safety standards including annual gas safety tests. The building is also protected by a modern, fully maintained fire detection system with smoke and heat detectors in each apartment connected to a control panel in the communal hallway. The system is tested every Thursday morning by our contractors at Brighton Fire Alarms.

Just what we wanted
A great apartment in the centre of Brighton. It was really clean and tidy and well appointed with everything we needed for a break in Brighton.
With a 5 month old baby we used the kitchen facilities to cook and for once were glad we hadn't packed half our kitchen to bring with us!
I understand why some have said it could be noisy (and we found the supply of ear plugs), but we weren't affected by this.
The only thing we did find was we felt we had to keep the shutters over the windows so we weren't overlooked from the street.
Overall we would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay here again.
Thanks for such a great review Christina. I had the shutters made because I have a near pathological dislike of net curtains and given our location I knew I had to provide residents of Flat 1 with a reliable level of privacy which I felt these shutters did. I’m so sorry they didn’t work for you. All best - James
Stunning Apartment - within walking distance of everything !
The property is extremely well presented and equipped. It is a few minutes walk to the beach, the Pier and the nearest shops are all close by.
The marina is about 3 1/2 miles away but can be easily reached either on foot or by bus.
Lovely accommodation to base the weekend from.
The property was exactly what we needed. Plenty of space for 4. Great decor and comfortable. Would definitely recommend if you want to be in the heart of the lanes.
Fantastic Apartment, Amazing Location
My daughter and I had an amazing few days in Brighton, your apartment was absolutely gorgeous, very modern and had everything we needed, although we were out shopping most of the time!!
The apartment is so ideally situated for everything, close to shops, restaurants, beach and was great that we could just pop back for a quick pit stop whenever we felt.
Only downside was the night time noise which we were aware of after reading previous reviews, but it really didn't affect our stay (and thanks for the supply of ear plugs!)
Overall we had a lovely stay, just wish it could have been for longer, but would definately return.
Thanks for such a great review - glad you enjoyed your break in Brighton.
Beautifully designed flat with all the amenities. Light and airy with outdoor patio, easy to access
The owners Graeme and James were always available and helpful at every turn. Lovely restaurants, cafes, shops, and the water within a short walking distance. You will love this warm inviting home away from home. We were happy to return at the end of each day!
Great Apartment in a Great Location
Had a great long weekend in Brighton staying at the apartment. The location was fantastic, it was so convenient to be able to walk everywhere and have the flexibility of coming home in between activities to give our three-year-old a rest. The apartment was very well equiped and spacious; much bigger in real life than it appeared in the photos. As others have mentioned it was a bit noisy with revellers walking past in the late evening, but we were expecting that and happy to put up with it for the great location. (And it wasn't noisy enough to wake the three-year-old!) The information folder was really useful too, with recommendations on dining as well as details about the apartment, etc. and we loved the recommended Cafe Coho just a few doors up the street! We would definitely stay again and highly recommend. Thanks!
Thank you for such a wonderful review Liz! Hope to see you all again.
PARKING: Parking is very expensive across the whole city so we recommend coming down to Brighton by train or coach. Brighton Station is just 10/15 minutes walk away or a couple of minutes (and about £6) by taxi. The nearest secure carpark to us is The Lanes carpark on Black Lion Street BN1 1ND where it costs £25 for 24 hours. The best & cheapest option is to pre-book your parking in advance with Regency Secure Parking on Regency Mews, BN1 2HF which is only 10 mins walk (or 1/2 a mile) from us. 24 hours parking here costs £14 and a whole week is just £83. Search http://www.regencysecureparking.co.uk where you can book online. More public carpark information is available on Brighton & Hove City Council’s website in their parking section (www.brighton-hove.gov.uk). Also try Googling Parkopedia’s website as it offers special deals on parking across Brighton & Hove including the odd private space for hire (www.en.parkopedia.co.uk).
Additional pricing information
If you’re looking for total peace and quiet, please be aware that we are right in the centre of Brighton’s Old Town which tends to get quiet lively at night on most weekends - so you must expect some noise. Our comparitivley low nightly rate reflects this fact as similar apartments in central Brighton rent for up to £125/night. That said, the bedroom has double glazing and we even provide ear plugs for the really light sleepers.
