Luxury Cottage in the Centre of Brighton BN1



Updated: 26-Oct-2016
3 Bedrooms, Bathroom With Luxury Bath, Large Kitchen, Aga, Spiral Staircase

PLEASE NOTE: The prices listed are for 3 night bookings or more, for 2 night bookings prices can be provided on request. North Lodge is a beautiful country style property in the CENTRE of Brighton city (BN1), set on 1/2 acre of private grounds this secluded property has 2 double bedrooms with sumptuous furnishings and a twin room as well as a double sofa bed should you need more. The bathroom has a beautiful original Victorian roll top bath to soak away the day with traverteine floors. As you go down the original wrought iron spiral staircase to the ground floor, you have wooden floors in the kitchen with an aga cooker and granite work surfaces, the dining room has beams and a slate floor with a large country dining table for entertaining with French doors opening out into the garden.The lounge has a wood burner fireplace and full cable to while away your evenings. It is a 10 minute walk to the main shopping and entertainment area and 15 minutes to the beach. There is an 18th century tavern just 2 minutes walk should you wish to stay locally. Good transport links allow you to explore the local area. Also I am having the map altered because North Lodge is depicted in the wrong location, it is on the junction of Highcroft and Millers road, up from where it is shown, and you cannot hear the trains at all. very private and secluded. Hope to see you soon.

Local Facilities: Other facilities in the local area are the use of the beautiful Preston park with the old Preston park manor to look around, for the more sporty there are tennis courts within a 5 minute walk, there are numerous golf course within a short taxi ride, the nearby marina offers fishing trips and sailing facilities, Brighton beach has all manner of entertainment, local sports facilities include an LA Fitness and a swimming centre. For entertainment, Brighton is considered one of THE liveliest towns in England with numerous clubs and bars within walking distance or a short taxi ride, so life in Brighton is never boring. For those looking for more culture Brighton has some of the best going with many theatres and cultural festivals. In fact Brighton has just about something for everybody!!

Further a field : Brighton is surrounded by the beautiful South Downs National park which has some of the most breathtaking views in England, there is a good bus service that will take around 20 minutes to transport you into the country with old pubs and stunning walks. Brighton station will transport you into the heart of London in just 49 minutes and run until late at night. p.s there is an additional charge for all 2 night stays which is available on request.

About the Owner

I have been living abroad doing various things, working, sailing and generally enjoying life, I just couldn't bear to let my home go, I have always been very social so I just wanted others to enjoy the house as I have over the years, with so many positive reviews, we must be doing something right! Hopefully you will think so too. :-)

The property was as we expected, the main disadvantage was that there is no downstairs WC.

  • 3 of 5

Perhaps we hadn't checked the property particulars closely enough but the lack of a downstairs WC was a bit restricting. Also, personally, I would do away with the Aga which made the kitchen area too warm at times. The driveway access is quite tight and it is difficult to back out or turn around. Otherwise the house was tidy and clean and met our needs. The outside private space is good.

A lovely weekend break, easy reach of town

  • 4 of 5

The house was exactly as advertised. A lovely place, clean and tidy with a lovely kitchen and very loud sound system 😀 an ideal place for family or friends. I recommend pub called "the cow" in seven dials for craft beers. Brighton is a great place for kids too, and the weather was nice as well. The only thing missing from the house is perhaps a shower but that's a minor quibble on a short break.

The description of the house is very correct. There is many space in the house for 6 persons and outside with a modern barbecue in a lovely garden site. The kitchen was equipped perfect with all modern machines and an old fashioned Aga we Germans never handled before. We missed nothing. The antique style mixed with the modern is very impressed, especially in the bathroom and the beautiful bedrooms. It was quiet, because it is set back from the street.

The contact to the owner was very nice before and after our stay. We were well prepared. Thank you very much.

If we will come back sometimes in the UK we try to spend some days in this wonderful house.

From the Owner

It Just has a really nice feel about it whether that be entertaining or just chilling out in the secluded back garden, it is a true gem. I loved this house from the moment I saw it and the love affair continues. To add to that it is central Brighton so nothing is far away and if you just fancy popping round the corner (30 Secs on a bad day) you have a great local pub! If I wasn't living in Singapore then I wouldn't live anywhere else. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have over the years. P.s there is an additional charge for any 2 night stays which will be given on request. Thanks

From the Owner

Location, the local area, local pub, transport, Brighton, the Downs national park (15mins by car), and the fact you can crank the stereo up and you would be hard pushed to upset the neighbours (trust me I've tried!) or chill out as if you were in a country garden or both!
