Our little blue house is close to the city centre - it's 8 minutes walk from Brighton station. Whether you're visiting for the culture or beach, a party or on business, it's a convenient location for exploring the city. Your large, quiet single room has a bed with a new mattress, chest of drawers, desk, wifi and kettle. It's next door to the bathroom and you can use the kitchen and patio. There is free off-street parking at weekends and a help-yourself breakfast is included.
Our guest bedroom is light and quiet and because the bed has sofa-style wooden back and arms with a proper (brand new!) mattress, you can use it as place to relax during the day too. There is a kettle so you can make tea and coffee in your room, a good wi-fi connection, a large desk and a chest of drawers for you to use, plus a hairdryer. But what makes the place unique - along with the very convenient location - is the charm of our whole house. It was built in 1830 and has lovely features - pretty windows and wallpaper and lots of flowers both inside and out, offset by all mod cons in terms of cooking facilities and multimedia equipment. The country-cottage style kitchen has a large table for dining, and there's also a table out in the south-facing patio.
Guests can use the bathroom (which has a shower and a bath), kitchen and patio. If we are not at home, you may also use the living room but please check our movements if you wish to do so. Because I work from home I will often be at the house in the day time, and prefer not to be disturbed when I am in my office, but am happy to chat in the kitchen or garden.

If I am not working, I will try my best to answer any questions about the surrounding areas should you be a guest here, and having lived in Brighton for 14 years know my way about the city. I can suggest places to eat and sights to see, but more than that: I know where to get your nails done, your hair cut, which bookshops to visit, who does the best takeaway coffee - and a whole heap more besides. And whilst our home is not enormous, visitors seem to like it - Tom and I love living here. Any other questions, please ask.
Breakfast is included in the price of the room. We ask guests to help themselves to cereal and/or toast/croissants, which will be out for you in the kitchen.
If you're driving please do make sure you have directions from us - SAT NAV tends to take you down the A23 and into Brighton and the house is much better approached from the A27 via Hove. It's quicker and less confusing.
Apologies in advance if Thor, our fluffy grey cat, asks to come in your room by scratching on the door – he does this occasionally as he’s used to my stepson sleeping in there and he's officially Sebastian's cat!
- You are welcome to arrive whenever you wish after 4pm. If you wish to leave your bag earlier in the day that may also be possible, but please be aware your room may not be ready for you to use as we need time to change over between guests. Also, if you wish to check in after 9pm, we will ask you to use the key safe and check in yourself, so please ask for details if you will be arriving late.
- If you are driving, on Saturday and Sunday there is access to free parking next door to the house - unusual for central Brighton! Let us know if you wish to use the space and we will give details prior to your arrival.
- Guests are free to use the bathroom, kitchen and the patio (which is south facing and pretty). You may also use the living room if we are not at home in the evening.
- We have two cats, so the room would not be suitable for anyone with a pet allergy.
This is me (Sarah) with my husband (Tom). I am an author and Tom is a chef. Tom has a son (thus I have a stepson), Sebastian, 18. We have been using Air B&B for three years as guests - we went all round New Zealand staying in Air B&B places and this summer round central Europe - and are regular home swappers too. We've been AirB&B hosts for over a year and really enjoy meeting people.
I work from home so should be around to answer any questions about the house and surrounding areas should you be a guest here, and having lived in Brighton for 14 years know my way about the city.

And whilst our home is not enormous, visitors seem to like it - Tom and I love living here. The country-cottage style kitchen has a large table for dining, and there's also a table out in the south-facing patio which you are welcome to use on warmer days. Any other questions, please ask.
