I have a lovely, first floor single room in my Edwardian house in the historic heart of Rottingdean. It is a quiet room with views of cottages and gardens. There is a very comfortable bed, original Edwardian wardrobe and restored drawers & desk. The room is tastfully decorated in a very tranquil colour scheme. There is a TV which offers bbc iplayer, Now TV & YouTube. Tea & coffee making facilities are provided. Along the landing there is a shared bathroom with a bath/shower & separate toilet.

The space
Within a few minutes walk of my house you can see the beautiful St Margarets Church, the duck pond, the old village green and the picturesque Kipling Gardens. Also very close is the Grange art gallery & museum & the Windmill. The house is only 350 metres from the beach & seafront so perfect for an evening stroll before dinner.
As my house is right in the centre of the village I don't offer breakfast. There are so many coffee shops and cafes that do a wonderful English Breakfast, Eggs Benedict or freshly baked croissants you won't go hungry. You will be spoilt for choice for traditional village pubs which offer a fantastic selection of local beers and gins and some offer live music.
Only a 10-minute drive or bus ride to Brighton Marina and the cosmopolitan city centre, with numerous bars, live music, eateries, theatres, art galleries and antique shops. Enjoy shopping along The Lanes, saunter along the pier, visit the Royal Pavilion or ride the new i360.
The glorious South Downs National Park with its excellent walks and cycle routes can be easily accessed from Rottingdean.

Where you’ll be

Brighton, England, United Kingdom

Rottingdean is often described as the hidden gem of Brighton. It has a special feel to it and although it is only 2 miles outside the city it retains all the characteristics of a village. It dates back to the Domesday book and has a Norman church and a pond and village green at it's heart.
There are many pretty old cottages and historic houses in the village.The famous writer Rudyard Kipling, the Pre-Raphelite artist Edward Burne Jones and the artist William Nicholson all once resided in Rottingdean. There is a wonderful museum - The Grange with the most tranquil tea garden you can find. My house is right at the centre of village life so finding a place to have coffee is not difficult. There are many coffee shops and cafes (breakfast at the Sea Spray on the seafront is a must). Rottingdean boasts 5 pubs serving local ales and good food to suit all pockets.
The seafront is a wonderful place whether in winter or summer.
