Description from owner
With the seafront right on your doorstep, our sweet Brighton home is in the perfect spot to enjoy the delight's of Brighton's seaside and buzzing city. Bohemian Kemp Town has an incredible selection of bars, restaurants and shops yet is within easy walking distance of the entire city centre of Brighton with its many delights. Poke your head out of the door and and there is Brighton's glorious beach, perfect for splashing around in the sea in summer months and bracing walks in winter. A ten minute walk along the seafront takes you to the pier and the lovely Queens Park is a short walk away. If you don't want to walk the short distance a regular bus service nearby whizzes you into town. A walk to the train station takes about fifteen minutes.
The house is filled with our eclectic belongings gathered in Brighton's many markets, vintage fairs and nearby antique shops as well as on our travels around the world. We have many antlers and even a deer's head and original oil paintings all add originality to this quirky cottage. It is a cosy, warm and comfortable base in a peaceful street yet with easy access to the Laines, Brighton Pavillion and the many Regency streets which line the city. You can also walk to the Marina along the seafront.
The double fronted house is on three storeys and has two double bedrooms (double beds) and a bathroom upstairs. The main storey has a large living room with velvet sofas and there is a spacious, well appointed kitchen/dining room again with sofa, Smeg appliances etcetera. The dining table seats six.
Downstairs the large basement room has a French day bed that can sleep two but please note that there is no window or door to this room so its best-suited to children or teenagers. There is an additional large flat screen TV which younger guests seem to like whilst their parents are upstairs relaxing! Much of the furniture and equipment is new as this is the first time we've rented out our beloved house.
We can help with restaurant suggestions and give advice and help on what to do whilst in Brighton if you would like.
There is paid for parking nearby which is quite cheap (and rare for Brighton!) around £5 for 11 hours and again we can help with this.
Please note that whilst we want you to enjoy your stay this is a residential street with lovely neighbours so we do not accept stag or hen parties, groups of young adults under 25 and ask that noise is kept to a minimum especially after 10pm.

“Lovely place to stay”
Located to the East of Brighton pier and barely a 5 minutes walk the center of town, The White Cottage is perfectly placed to enjoy Brighton. Parking is a rare thing in Brighton but paid parking is ju… More

“We do like to be beside the seaside”
This was my second stay at Ginetta's lovely little cottage in Brighton, and once again it was perfect for our short stay. The location is hard to beat and the cottage is very well furnished and … More
Response from the owner Thanks Roger and so glad to hear you were comfortable and enjoyed The White Cottage's prime location. We love getting repeat guests, hope to see you next year!
“Eine liebevoll eingerichtete Stadtwohnung in Strandnähe”
Insgesamt eine schöne Unterkunft mit ausreichend Platz in den Räumlichkeiten. Allerdings war es an den Wochenenden immer relativ laut. Das Haus bietet viele Möglichkeiten, es fehlt abe… More
Response from the owner Very glad to hear that Peter and his family enjoyed a long stay at The White Cottage which doesn't have a garden or balcony but which is steps from the beach and within easy walking distance of all of central Brighton..
“Mostly fabulous, just beware of noisy neighbours!”
Four of us stayed for a weekend in June. The cottage was lovely, quirky, spacious and well equipped. The location was perfect, walkable to everywhere we wanted to go. The only downsides for us were t… More

“Lovely accomodation in fantastic location”
We stayed here in August this year and we had a great week. The cottage is beautiful inside with some very unique and interesting decor. It is absolutely perfectly located for Brighton, only a ten m… More
Response from the owner So glad to hear that the house proved to be a great base for a family holiday. There's so much to do in Brighton yet you could just enjoy a relaxing beach holiday and our stretch of beach is never crowded. We've tried to make the interior of the house interesting rather than just a bland rented place so it's great when guests appreciate this. Thank you!
“Fantastic property in an excellent location.”
A fantastic property, really spacious and brilliantly decorated. A great location, right on the seafront and in a great area of Brighton where there are some nice pubs and places to eat. Only a short … More
Response from the owner So nice to hear that you enjoyed the great location. Kemptown is packed with interesting pubs and restaurants yet you can be at the main pier and in the heart of Brighton within a few minutes walk.
“Beautiful house , excellent location.”
A very beautiful house in an ideal location for seeing Brighton. We have two young boys and grandparents came too . The basement room was fabulous at night for the boys ( and us! ) they could escape down there with their own tv leaving us to enjoy ours upstairs . Beautiful quirky furniture makes this house a little more special than an ordinary rental. The beach and the pier are a stones throw away.. Our boys are fine running round a football pitch but ask them to walk to places and it's a different matter. We parked the car up on arrival and didn't need it again until we left. Would strongly recommend this property; we had a wonderful time and even managed a tan on Brighton beach!!
Response from the owner We were so glad that The White Cottage proved to be an ideal base for three generations. The house has a separate basement room which children and teenagers love so that they can escape their parents! The beach is also so close that young and old can easily manage the few steps it takes to get there and there is so much to do for everyone within a very short distance. Try crazy golf or beach volleyball nearby or have a ride on the Victorian Volks railway which takes you up and down the coast. Walk to the marina where you can try a fishing trip. Ask us for suggestions and we will be very happy to help with your trip to Brighton.
“Beautiful House, Great Location, Very Speacial!”
We've just returned from a weekend in Brighton staying at Ginetta's beautiful White Cottage. Prior to the weekend Ginetta was very helpful with advice and all I can say is she has a beautiful home, well located for everything you could wish for including great bars, restaurants and shops. The interior design of the house is really special, the lounge is large as is the kitchen and basement which can be used as a third guest room, the master bedroom is lovely and there's a second double bedroom if you have guests, 6 could sleep there comfortably. So if you compare the cost to some of the local boutique hotels, you get a lot more bang for your buck and privacy as well - What's not to like! Best Wishes, Aaron & Salli
Response from the owner It was a pleasure hosting Aaron and Salli at The White Cottage. All guests report that it's a great spot for a special trip such as a birthday or anniversary. We're always happy to help with suggestions as to what to do and where to go as Brighton has so much to offer throughout the seasons but it's nice to have a comfortable, cosy and well stocked base to return to which is what we strive for at The White Cottage.
