Description

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Interaction with guests

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. 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.

The neighbourhood

Our home is in Seven Dials, which is a residential area popular with commuters and families because it is only seven-minute's walk from Brighton mainline station and the city centre. The little terrace where we live is very quiet as its tucked away like a secret street - on our side there are houses, on the other trees, but we are less than 100 metres from a quirky array of local shops and cafes - a newsagent, chemist, supermarket, flower shop and several pubs and restaurants are all about one minute away. We are also only half a mile from the beach and sea.

Getting around

The location is great - it's why we bought the house! The street is quiet but it's still central - the perfect combination. All the amenities of Brighton centre are in easy walking distance including the mainline station, but if you wish to catch a bus to go further afield, there are stops very close to the house.

Other things to note

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!

I had an amazing time at Sarah and Tom's, their little blue house is adorable and located in a great area. It was a short walk to the downtown area, and by the end of the day if you were too tired to trek home, the number 7 bus would get you back within 10 minutes. The room is exactly like the pictures, very comfortable bed and I loved having a tea kettle in the room. Breakfast in the morning was a plus, and although it was a tad chilly to eat outside, the backyard garden is ideallic. Sarah recommended I do a tour of the Royal Pavilion and I'm glad she did, such an interesting building especially if you enjoy museums. I was traveling on my own, so it was lovely to come back and have a chat with Sarah and Tom about my travels, it really made me feel at home. I will definitely be back again!

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 two years as guests - we went all round New Zealand staying in Air B&B places - and are regular home swappers too.
