Offering weekend-only B&B for up to six, our large bungalow is like a grand hobbit house. As your resident hosts we live here too but have our own living space; we're on hand to offer local knowledge and make sure you are comfortable and happy.
We have three rooms available, each sleeps two and and has a private bathroom. This listing enables you to book all three rooms at once.
Exceptionally for Brighton, we've plenty of free parking! Our guests love the convenience of the location, the quirkiness of the house and the peaceful surroundings.. We welcome guests' candid reviews! We're always seeking ways to improve your stay.
The Twin is a large ground floor room off the downstairs hallway. It has twin divan beds and bedside drawer unit and lamp, fold down table and wardrobes. The sheer quiet seems to surprise our guests! The large, private bathroom is opposite (bath and hand towels provided). It's brand new and has a large walk-in shower. Solid wooden floors, with red spot rugs make this big, bright, west facing red and white room a super comfortable home for two friends or a couple.
The big round bed room is our premium room. It's on the first floor and has a fabulous queen size round bed, lots of hanging space and drawers, and a sparkling white en-suite bathroom with scarlet mats and power shower over the bath. We describe it as scandichic with a hint of hobbit! It has views in three directions; you can even see the sea (just!).
Our third room is also a double but is downstairs off the entrance hall. Again, the super comfy standard double bed and decor have scandi origins while the small private shower room is modern white and grey with own loo and wash basin. West facing, with luck you'll see a spectacular sunset.
We have gardens on all four sides. Access to three of them is by key as the gate needs to be kept locked, but do ask. You'll have full use of the guest facilities downstairs featuring the large guest lounge and the biggest bean bag you've probably seen and two bright red settees; in the adjacent open plan dining area is a six seater dining table just off the large traditional kitchen where you can help yourself to tea and coffee. We've lived here for more than 10 years so we're on hand to point you to some great places, help with transport and suggest places to eat. If you wish you can store your cold food or drinks in the fridge, so, please, make yourselves at home. Do remember that unless you have booked all three rooms, there may be other guests sharing the communal areas.
Please note that the boutique character of the space makes it unsuitable for young children.
In the morning we'll also offer you a simple but beautiful breakfast - it's included in the cost! There's a choice of cereals or porridge, toast, croissants and jams, choice of a dozen teas and real coffee, and the best orange juice, all served at a time that suits you (but before 10.00am!). Our neighbourhood is Hove Park. It's residential but only a mile from the sea front and not much further from the Brighton city centre, Hove is only half a mile. We're on several bus routes and very near all the main routes into and out of town. We have plenty of free parking on the street and we're walking distance from Hove station. You'll have a key to come and go as you please.
We only have a few simple rules: We respect others' privacy and come and go quietly after 10.30pm. We leave the kitchen as we find it - pristine! Guests may make hot drinks and use the fridge but cooking is not permitted. Landline phones are not for the use of guests. Please, no outdoor shoes should be worn in the house. Groups should note that we don't allow partying or loud music even if you've booked all three rooms, sorry! Nor do we accept visitors who are not staying (unless by prior arrangement) or pets, and we're a smoke free zone.
We have free broadband wi-fi and each room is equipped with a guide to the area and a bus timetable. We also offer an indie guide to hundreds of local small businesses and literature pointing out local delights.
Finally, check-in is from 2pm and check out by 11am. Do feel free to contact us through the site to discuss your particular requirements.
