Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Lancing, England - Updated 2021

airbnb Lancing, United Kingdom

The West Sussex coastal village of Lancing will make for a great destination for those eager to experience a traditional British seaside holiday. A once-booming Victorian holiday spot, its shingle beach is still a popular place for a little messing about in the waters of the English Channel. What’s more, its location is just a few miles west of Brighton which means it is within striking distance of one of England’s most famous coastal resorts. Those who choose to head inland will not miss out either - the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park are particularly popular for walking, cycling and wildlife spotting. Whatever your reasons for visiting, there are plenty of Airbnb vacation rental options available - be it private rooms for solo travellers or flats that will appeal to family groups. Read on for some of the best.

1. Popular two-bedroom flat for four people (from USD 136)

Enjoying glowing reviews from hundreds of past guests, this two-bedroom flat is a good option for families of up to four who wish to base themselves within easy walking distance of the beach and Lancing’s various restaurants and shops. Set on the first floor but accessible by lift should you have any mobility issues, the flat features a range of mod-cons, including kitchen, cable TV and wi-fi internet for planning your daily itinerary. Past guests loved the “super comfy” beds and welcoming host. The flat is also handily-placed for the local railway station, which whisks passengers into Brighton. Local road links also mean London and Gatwick Airport are within easy driving distance.
