Situated in central Brighton, East Sussex there are regular trains to London and the rest of the UK. Gatwick is only 25 minutes away and Heathrow 90 minutes. There are regular buses into town from a bus stop nearby.
We love our house but are often away as we have another residence about half an hour away. This house is very much a family home. It isn't perfect but it is very lovely! It is cheerful, warm and welcoming. We are used to children and like them a lot, they are very welcome (so long as they don't draw on the carpet)!. There will be toys to play with and books to read. We have a travel cot suitable for a baby or toddler.
The house is decorated simply with splashes of colour everywhere and bold artwork on the walls. There are six bedrooms; three doubles and three singles (one of the singles' bed is slightly smaller than usual but any medium sized adult will be comfortable sleeping here) as well as a comfortable double sofa bed in the living room and another in a first floor room that also has a double bed. NB if you are requesting the house to sleep 16 there are two single futons in each of the upstairs rooms and a single mattress under the master bed which you can pull out as well. If you are requesting the house for any guests over 11 then there will be an extra charge of £35 per person per night added to the quote.
There is one bathroom with a deep bath, shower and loo and a separate loo next to this. The master bedroom has an ensuite shower and sink. There is also a small utility room with a washing machine and separate dryer.
The huge kitchen/diner is the heart of the house. The kitchen boasts a large six ring hob with a double oven. There are two fridges, one of which will be empty with a freezer that will have an empty shelf. There is a dishwasher, microwave and griddle as well as a toaster and kettle. The large pine table seats 6 easily (8 at a pinch) and can be linked with a fold down table and another table to accommodate either 4 more or 8 more, making a total of 16. There are chairs all over the house so you'll all have somewhere to sit.
The living room is spacious and elegant and a great place to relax in.
The back garden is small but pretty and is a suntrap in the middle of the day. To the side of the house we have built a deck that is perfect for evening meals or barbecues. We have a large but simple barbecue and tools but you will need to bring your own charcoal.
If you are celebrating why not let us help? Claudia runs a busy party/gift/cake decorating supplies shop called purple-heart in the centre of Brighton. So if you need helium balloons, bunting (although there is lots up in the house and garden anyway), party bag gifts, hats, streamers and more just let us know and we can have these ready and waiting for you!
Need a cake? We can almost certainly organise a gorgeous bespoke one as Claudia is a very keen and experienced baker! Just name your flavour and theme and ask for a quote! If you want to look at cakes Claudia has made just say and we'll point you in the right direction. Fancy a cupcake decorating lesson held in the house? We can set this up for you too, you'll learn loads and have lots of fun too!!! We can also organise a pampering party in the house and recommend other fun group activities, just ask...
We want you to enjoy your stay in our house but also ask you to take care of it as we love it very much!
•No shoes in the house please – there is a shoe cupboard in the entrance
•No smoking in the house. If you smoke in the garden, please could you put your butts in the purple heart pot by the back door
•We ask you to leave the house as tidy as you found it please.
I love light, colour and creativity - this is reflected in my home. Home making is my joy, I am happiest when I am with my children, gardening or baking. I enjoy travelling, here is a recent pic of me on a trip to India. I live in Brighton with my husband Derek and two of my five children (the older three have flown the nest). I work hard and play hard. I believe you should make the most of every day! You will find me a very accommodating host, If you need anything I am here to help x
