“Perfect holiday cottage for a stay with friends”

We stayed here recently for a hen do, there were 10 of us. Firstly the owner let us arrive on Friday at a time that we chose and also arranged parking permits for us so that we didn't have to park in the public car park. The house is in a perfect location to access all of Brighton within a maximum of 15 minutes' walk to the pier and the street is very quiet. The garden is a lovely sun trap when the weather's good and the living room is a perfect size for everyone to be able to relax together.
As we were able to liaise with the owner directly he gave us a great price for our stay and was extremely friendly and helpful.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone looking for a lovely weekend cottage.

We stayed as a group of approx 10 people in the Dragonfly cottage for a few days.
All of us enjoyed the stay.
The location is excellent, just up the road from the high street and near the seafront.
I can definitely recommend the cottage.

Dragonfly Cottage is located very centrally, 2 roads back from the beach and has easy access to all local amenities. The cottage is kept in very good condition and the owners very kindly allowed us firstly to have only a 1 night stay (below the minimum 2/3) and also allowed us to stay as long as we needed on our check out day of Sunday which allowed us to enjoy the day in Brighton without having to carry our luggage with us. I would highly recommend staying here and if I return to Brighton I will definitely stay here again.

“Great Cottage, Great Location”

Stayed at this cottage in March 2014 for my sisters hen do, there was 12 of us. We loved the cottage and it's very spacious and social. There is a lovely little court yard garden and the house is very well equipped with everything you could need while staying there. The location is amazing and the shops are literally a stones throw away from the cottage. The beach is about a 5 minute walk. Overall it was a lovely place to stay and I would recommend it to other people.

“Home from home”

This is a fabulous little cottage in a great location close to everything Brighton has to offer. Most importantly for us it felt like home, there's everything you could need, it's very comfy, the garden space is secluded and there's ample space to sit and relax. We were greeted by Brett and Cheryl on arrival, a lovely couple who showed us round and pointed us in the directness of some good local restaurants (which we used and were great) thank you for a fabulous stay!
