With the seafront right on your doorstep, our sweet Brighton home is in the perfect spot to enjoy the delight's of Brighton's seaside and buzzing city. Bohemian Kemp Town has an incredible selection of bars, restaurants and shops yet is within easy walking distance of the entire city centre of Brighton with its many delights. Poke your head out of the door and and there is Brighton's glorious beach, perfect for splashing around in the sea in summer months and bracing walks in winter. A ten minute walk along the seafront takes you to the pier and the lovely Queens Park is a short walk away. If you don't want to walk the short distance a regular bus service nearby whizzes you into town. A walk to the train station takes about fifteen minutes.
The house is filled with our eclectic belongings gathered in Brighton's many markets, vintage fairs and nearby antique shops as well as on our travels around the world. We have many antlers and even a deer's head and original oil paintings all add originality to this quirky cottage. It is a cosy, warm and comfortable base in a peaceful street yet with easy access to the Laines, Brighton Pavillion and the many Regency streets which line the city. You can also walk to the Marina along the seafront.
The double fronted house is on three storeys and has two double bedrooms (double beds) and a bathroom upstairs. The main storey has a large living room with velvet sofas and there is a spacious, well appointed kitchen/dining room again with sofa, Smeg appliances etcetera. The dining table seats six.
Downstairs the large basement room has a French day bed that can sleep two but please note that there is no window or door to this room so its best-suited to children or teenagers. There is an additional large flat screen TV which younger guests seem to like whilst their parents are upstairs relaxing! Much of the furniture and equipment is new as this is the first time we've rented out our beloved house.
We can help with restaurant suggestions and give advice and help on what to do whilst in Brighton if you would like.
There is paid for parking nearby which is quite cheap (and rare for Brighton!) around £5 for 11 hours and again we can help with this.
Please note that whilst we want you to enjoy your stay this is a residential street with lovely neighbours so we do not accept stag or hen parties, groups of young adults under 25 and ask that noise is kept to a minimum especially after 10pm.

About this location
The Brighton and Hove region
Situated just steps from the seafront, the White Cottage is the perfect spot to enjoy all that Brighton has to offer and all within walking distance. The buzzing city of Brighton always has something going on whether it be a camper van convention, the zombie parade, theatre performances or music events. This lively cosmopolitan seaside resort is that rare combination of coastal splendour with tons of sophisticated bars, restaurants and shops yet with easy access to the rest of the South Coast and rolling countryside. The South Downs are within easy reach or head to Devils Dyke for a spot of hiking or gentle walking. The Sussex countryside has some lovely peaceful villages with thatched pubs and idyllic village greens perfect for a spot of lunch or try exploring some of the other seaside resorts in the area such as Eastbourne.
Kemptown is a lively spot right on the beach and a short walk from Brighton railway station and the heart of the action. It's known for its great flea market finds and quirky antique shops as well as having a great organic butchers, greengrocers, specialist cheese shop and bakery that all make for a food-filled holiday. Some of the city's best restaurants are here too so within a few minutes walk you could eat out at a different place each night and we will happily recommend our favourites.
Our nearest local pub, The Hand in Hand a few minutes walk away, typifies what makes Brighton such a welcoming friendly place. Ours is a peaceful street yet the action is never far away whether you like strolling the Regency squares and parks nearby and finding out all about the city's fascinating history or heading to the Laines for a spot of shopping. You can easily walk to the theatre, to four cinemas including the marina which is around fifteen minutes up the coast and which is a great spot for sitting and enjoying the boat-filled harbour or taking a fishing trip.
Our section of beach is relatively crowd-free in the summer and you can board the Victorian Volks railway, always fun for a glimpse of the past. Crazy golf is on our doorstep alongside a beach vollyeyball club for the active and joggers and rollerbladers enjoy the seafront for their daily exercise.
A major advantage for drivers staying at The White Cottage is that cheap and plentiful parking can be found very near to the house-a big plus for Brighton where parking can be tricky and expensive.We can provide all details.

"Mostly fabulous, just beware of noisy neighbours!"
Four of us stayed for a weekend in June. The cottage was lovely, quirky, spacious and well equipped. The location was perfect, walkable to everywhere we wanted to go. The only downsides for us were t… More

"Lovely accomodation in fantastic location"
We stayed here in August this year and we had a great week. The cottage is beautiful inside with some very unique and interesting decor. It is absolutely perfectly located for Brighton, only a ten m… More
So glad to hear that the house proved to be a great base for a family holiday. There's so much to do in Brighton yet you could just enjoy a relaxing beach holiday and our stretch of beach is never crowded. We've tried to make the interior of the house interesting rather than just a bland rented place so it's great when guests appreciate this. Thank you!

So nice to hear that you enjoyed the great location. Kemptown is packed with interesting pubs and restaurants yet you can be at the main pier and in the heart of Brighton within a few minutes walk.

"Beautiful house , excellent location."
A very beautiful house in an ideal location for seeing Brighton. We have two young boys and grandparents came too . The basement room was fabulous at night for the boys ( and us! ) they could escape down there with their own tv leaving us to enjoy ours upstairs . Beautiful quirky furniture makes this house a little more special than an ordinary rental. The beach and the pier are a stones throw away.. Our boys are fine running round a football pitch but ask them to walk to places and it's a different matter. We parked the car up on arrival and didn't need it again until we left. Would strongly recommend this property; we had a wonderful time and even managed a tan on Brighton beach!!
We were so glad that The White Cottage proved to be an ideal base for three generations. The house has a separate basement room which children and teenagers love so that they can escape their parents! The beach is also so close that young and old can easily manage the few steps it takes to get there and there is so much to do for everyone within a very short distance. Try crazy golf or beach volleyball nearby or have a ride on the Victorian Volks railway which takes you up and down the coast. Walk to the marina where you can try a fishing trip. Ask us for suggestions and we will be very happy to help with your trip to Brighton.

"Beautiful House, Great Location, Very Speacial!"
We've just returned from a weekend in Brighton staying at Ginetta's beautiful White Cottage. Prior to the weekend Ginetta was very helpful with advice and all I can say is she has a beautiful home, well located for everything you could wish for including great bars, restaurants and shops. The interior design of the house is really special, the lounge is large as is the kitchen and basement which can be used as a third guest room, the master bedroom is lovely and there's a second double bedroom if you have guests, 6 could sleep there comfortably. So if you compare the cost to some of the local boutique hotels, you get a lot more bang for your buck and privacy as well - What's not to like! Best Wishes, Aaron & Salli
It was a pleasure hosting Aaron and Salli at The White Cottage. All guests report that it's a great spot for a special trip such as a birthday or anniversary. We're always happy to help with suggestions as to what to do and where to go as Brighton has so much to offer throughout the seasons but it's nice to have a comfortable, cosy and well stocked base to return to which is what we strive for at The White Cottage.

"Unique property with everything needed for a great Brighton break!"
Lovely 3 story house in cool area of Kemptown! Only 15 minute walk to centre of Brighton and on a quiet side street just off the seafront. Friendly and helpful owner who has provided all amenities at the property you could need for a break away from home. Would definitely go back and recommend. Ideal for 4 people but could easily sleep 5 or 6 due to a cool basement room.
This was our first ever hosting and we were really glad to hear our guests loved the house, street and seaside location. Brighton can be a real pain for parking but we have a nearby street where parking is easily available and cheap for Brighton. Our street is also peaceful, a rare find in Brighton, especially in mid summer, yet it's also easy to walk to the station, the laines for shopping and even to the marina making it the perfect base. Kemp Town is a great neighbourhood (recently recommended in The Times' list of best neighbourhoods)so if you want to stay really local you'll find some cool bars, great restaurants and tons of quirky pubs and shops. Happy to help with suggestions for all and have left lots of information in the house along with guide books, city maps and historical and photographic books on Brighton so that you can really get to know the city on your visit.
Whether you're a history buff, a vintage clothes shopper, a foodie or a beach bum, Brighton has something for you!
