Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 12

Key Info
  • Beach / lakeside relaxation
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car not necessary
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

Situated in the stylish Clifton Conservation Area, Dragonfly Cottage was built in 1824 and retains many period features. Although in the heart of the city, it is in a normally quiet street, but is just yards from the big shops, clubs and restaurants and five minute's walk from the sea so you won't need taxis!

Arranged over three floors, the interior is both unique and funky, designed to give you a memorable stay. Plenty of personality here and definitely a seaside vibe in this house with the Treasure Island bathroom and the Eagle's Nest bedroom to name just a couple! The cottage is very well equipped and the owners have tried to include everything you would possibly need.

The large, open plan lounge is perfect for socialising with a glass of wine to chat and plan the evening or weekend ahead. There is a wide screen TV, DVD player and DVD library and an iPod docking station. The dining room is separate from the lounge and the large dining table seats up to 10. Unusually for the city centre, there is a courtyard garden with plenty of seating which is a sun trap in the afternoon and which is perfect for alfresco dining.

Within a couple of minutes walk you will find a Sainsburys and a Waitrose, and Preston Street with its wall to wall restaurants of just about every ethnicity is a similar distance. The Brighton Beer Dispensary, a craft beer tavern, is adjacent and is sure to appeal to anyone with a taste for real ale as it has a huge selection and also serves food.

Info provided by tourist board


England’s loveliest and liveliest city by the sea. Brighton and Hove is fun, cosmopolitan and uniquely eccentric all year round. Regency architecture, pleasure pier, specialist shops, pavement cafés, lively arts scene and vibrant night-life, everything is in walking distance, so take time to explore and enjoy.And with a backdrop of the Sussex Downs and traditional English countryside, Brighton and Hove is a great base for exploring the region.

Brighton and Hove is the most enchanting, exciting, extraordinary seaside city in Britain. However brazen that may sound, it is no exaggeration. With its cosmopolitan air, oodles of restaurants, feverish nightlife and abundance of culture, the place defies comparison with anywhere else this side of the English Channel.

For centuries it has been regarded as a ‘pleasure dome’, and that’s not about to change. If you love life, welcome to Brighton and Hove. Info provided by tourist board.
