House in Brighton, Great Britain

Our 2-storey town house was built in the early 1900's.
It is a gorgeous Edwardian property with offstreet parking and a rear and side Mediterrean-style garden. It is a spacious family house with ample room for adults, teenagers, and children combined.
Set just outside the city centre in a peaceful, family oriented neighbourhood called Queens Park, only 15 minutes walk away from the vibrant and famous Brighton Laines, we are very close to one of Brighton's largest parks. Watch a youtube video of our beautiful park here:

The double doors in the kitchen open straight out to the garden, making it the ideal entertaining space. We often entertain friends and their children in the summer by having a BBQ and maybe a glass of wine or two...
We are just 10 minutes walk to the sea and 10 minutes drive to the stunning South Downs too, making the city a great base for exploring the beautiful Sussex region.
A unique mix of coast and countryside, the areas beyond Brighton offer a whole new world just waiting to be explored.
From spectacular gardens and historic houses to quaint cosy pubs, rolling Downs and picturesque villages, the Sussex area offers the perfect complement to the buzz of city life.
And with so much stunning countryside, literally on the doorstep of the city, there are loads of opportunities for walking and cycling activities:

Much of these activities are free or cost very little too, which is even better!
We very much look forward to welcoming you to our home.

About Our Family

We, Camilla (44) and Craig (40), love exploring new places and have travelled all around the world together with our 9 year old daughter Issy.
Our typical summer holiday is to hire a villa in Southern Europe, normally France or Italy. We sometimes drive our VW campervan down to wherever we are going and make it a proper journey. Life shouldn't be a rush when on holiday :-)
We have 2 cats, Pasha and Jazzy. who normally go to a cattery when we  are away on holiday, but if you like cats, we can always let them stay at the house.
We have a large Citreon Picasso car which easily seats 5 adults and the campervan which sleeps 4 adults.
There are 2 new adult mountain bikes and 1 child's bike in the garden shed that are perfect for exploring the Sussex Downs nearby or riding along the coastal path.
There is lots to do for families in Brighton, have a look at this site to get an idea:
