About Brighton
In Severn Dials there are several gastro pubs, deli's, a few cute shops, a small batch coffee shop, cafes, a co-op supermarket and off license all within a few minutes walk. I've marked a few recommendations on map and I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Alternatively, within 15 minutes walk you are in central Brighton, visit the unique and vibrant North Laine area with its bohemian mix of shops, bars, cafes. Or cross over to the Brighton Lanes' historic quarter, a fabulous maze of twisting alleyways offering a mix of antiques and jewellery shops nestling alongside boutiques.

Brighton is a cosmopolitan, artistic, musical and dynamic city, with a fabulous mix of culture, history, seaside kitsch, bohemian open-mindedness and continental café culture.

It's the perfect base for exploring the south coast, London, and the south of England generally, and it is only 25 minutes from Gatwick and 50 minutes from London on the train.

If you're interested, please let me know a bit about yourself and your trip and when and how long you'd like to stay. I'm happy to take bookings at the last minute or in advance.

Hi Kate, Thanks for letting us stay in your home. Your friendly & detailed communication was helpful. It had all we needed, clean with a short enjoyable walk to the fabulous Brighton sea front. We will be back to visit soon. Thanks for making a very special time with my wonderful grandson a memorable one.

It's a real experience of "Home to Home" stay. Location in nice residential area but easy to take bus to beach or 15min walk. Good place for avoiding hustle and bustle downtown. Personally like it's aged furniture and decorating atmosphere. Ellen

We loved our stay here! It was a real home away from home, so-much-so that we chose to eat 'at home' each evening (kitchen was easy to use and takeaway menus were on hand too). The place is light and bright with so much character. We would definitely stay there again. The flat was very clean, comfortable and quirky. Booking and check-in was easy (fast and friendly replies). Location was good too with Coop nearby and a nice downhill walk to the sea. We would recommend the nearby Joe's cafe for breakfast too!

Really lovely home from home. Very clean and tidy, great location for Seven Dials which has some cool places to eat and drink (loved sunday lunch at The Cow). Easy walk to seafront and Lanes for shopping and eating. Would recommend.

This lovely home provides a gorgeous place to stay – and Kate is a wonderful host. Kate’s interiors are beautifully designed & there are so many interesting things to look at! The flat is on a tree-lined, quiet street in easy walking distance from the centre of town. All this, combined with a truly homely atmosphere makes the Retro Retreat a great base from which to explore Brighton.

I've lived in Brighton for 17 glorious years and adore the city, its vibe and the people. I've been an Air BnB host for a few years.

Holidays are the bees knees, I love to travel and explore the world. But home is important too, there's nothing like a cosy night in or cooking for friends. I have a passion for interiors, vintage finds and family heirlooms. I have been fortune to build a career within the industry as an interior stylist, working on TV make overs shows and magazine shoots.
