No 1. All things quirky and beautiful
- EasierTravel published 26/June/2012

“it's good to be British and there's nobody quite like the Brits when it comes to doing quirky and eccentric. So this week we've picked our favourite quirky holiday home in the UK, an Alice In Wonderland inspired Brighton cottage”
- EasierTravel published 26/June/2012

- The cottage is located in the heart of the city's dining district. The property does not have a dining table, and while the kitchen is fully equipped it is a small studio style kitchen. The cottage is not suitable for large scale self catering, but with the best of Brighton's restaurants and cafes on your doorstep- you won't want to stay in and cook! There is everything you need for preparing simple meals.

- Due to the age of this property, the cottage has low ceilings and narrow staircases.

- The property does not come with free parking although there are plenty of carparks in the immediate area.

- Sorry- No Stag Dos

- Sorry, No disabled access

                              Car: Not Necessary

                              - The property is right in the city centre and so easily approached by public transport.

                              - Trains arrive every 30mins at Brighton Station from London Victoria (journey time approx 50 mins) and there is always a great queue of taxi's outside the station- the fare around £5 to the house.

                              - Gatwick Airport is approx 40 minutes by train, coach or car.

                              - Gatwick airport is serviced by most major airlines, including BA and Easyjet.

                              - There is a wide selection of nationwide car rentals to choose from at the airport. However as the house is in such a central location, a car is not necessary to enjoy the city- all the major attractions are accessible on foot or short cab ride.

                              - The National Express Coach runs between Gatwick airport and Brighton Pool Valley coach station (3 minutes walk from the house).

                              - While there is no car-parking space with the property there is a large multi-story car-park in the adjacent street. Ask the owner for additional parking ideas.

                               

                              Owner info

                              About the owner: We are a Brighton-based couple proud to present our themed holiday cottage. We have lived here 10 years so can advise objectively on local restaurants and things to do. We want you to enjoy your stay in this brilliant city as much as we enjoy it. That's why we ended up moving here!

                              Why the Owner Chose Brighton:
                              We LOVE this 16th century cottage and it's amazing location, right by the sea, shops and bars. You can't beat it! We walked past it many times and heard about it's heritage in one of the many Brighton Guided Tours, never dreaming we would one day own it. When the opportunity presented itself we grabbed it and have thoroughly enjoyed renovating it and working with local interior designer, Julia Harding, to create this sophisticated wonderland boutique accommodation.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              You won't need to worry about budgeting for taxi fares as this property is slap bang in the middle of all the action whilst still being tucked away. You can roll out of bed and onto the beach in minutes. The luxury finishings mean you get a boutique experience with the exclusivity of your own place.
