About Jacqueline

We are a Brighton-based couple proud to present our themed holiday cottage. We have lived here 14 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!

Jacqueline purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Jacqueline 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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Me and my friends stayed here for a short break and it was perfect! The Alice in Wonderland theme is fab and really adds some extra charm to the holiday. The house is right on the seafront, surrounded by restaurants and just a short walk into the main town and the lanes. Couldn't ask for better!
