Many thanks for the use of your property. We had a great time in Brighton, made all the more enjoyable by having such a lovely place to go back to at the end of the day. It really has a great feel to it and was extremely peaceful. September 2012

Thanks Grainne, I had an absolutely brilliant time it is a very nice house and would definitely recommend it to others or book it again myself. June 2012

We will definitely stay again! We had decent weather and actually managed to get sunburnt, again thanks we had a great stay it was a beautiful cottage. June 2012

Cosy and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay in a quiet but convenient area known as Hanover. You can walk to town/seafront fairly easily, but, tbh, it was so easy and cheap to get taxis for four of us, so we did that most of the time. We were able to find a parking space very close to the property too, which was a relief!

Perfect break in Brighton

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely and was perfect for us - warm, clean and very comfortable with everything we needed. We found it easy to park on the street near the house, and enjoyed walking into Brighton. All uphill on the way back but there are regular buses. There are plenty of local pubs and cafes and a lovely bakery at the end of the street.

We had a fantastic time in Brighton and wouldn't hesitate to stay in the cottage again.We would highly recommend it.

Cosy, comfortable and conveniently-situated accommodation

  • 4 of 5

The house is very well appointed, comfortable and reasonably well equipped. The open-plan arrangement in the downstairs living area gives a nice feeling of spaciousness. We were able to walk to the centre of Brighton in 30 minutes, and driving north or east into the South Downs is very easy from the Hanover district. There is a good selection of food shops nearby. In common with most town-based accommodation there is competition for car-parking, although most of the time we were able to park quite near to the house.

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a super time staying in Brighton. Our little cottage was perfect for us. Clean, pretty furnishings - it felt like home! Great location as we could walk into town and Grainne, the owner, was very friendly and helpful. Overall, a great place to stay - our three little girls loved it!

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

Just spent a long weekend originally booked a hotel but decide the self catering option would be better. We had a lovely stay the property has one large double bedroom, small double and a double sofa bed that we also used it also has a large bathroom with a shower over the bath and a galley kitchen with all the necessary equipment that you need for your stay it was also very clean with plenty of to towels. The bed linen was of excellent quality and comfortable beds

We came by train so didn't need to park a car, the street is one way and very busy parking wise. We used taxis which were easy to book but only because of the venue we were visiting you can get a bus at the bottom of the street and you could also walk into town and either bus or text back

We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate coming back sometime in the future
