About this listing
Our sweet little flat is simple and cosy. The location is superb for getting into Brighton and then retiring back to tranquility. You can cycle up to the hills, go swimming or surfing on Hove beach 10 minutes walk away. You'll love it.
Our flat is in a Victorian property on a quiet street. We have a double bedroom, a lounge with a double sofa bed and a cosy kitchen which looks out over a garden. It is light and has everything you could need.
We have some new artwork up of a hare and we are pleased with the way it is looking.
Four people have stayed comfortably in our flat. The garden view is delightful and often the sun shines straight into the kitchen.

Barnaby was a great host, welcoming us into his charming flat and showing us around before leaving us with the keys and a bottle of bubbly!
The flat is clean and tidy, and is walking distance to the station, shops and the sea, with good bus links too.
We had a brilliant stay and would recommend the flat!
Barnaby was very thorough and helpful in his communication about the visit. There was a nice welcome note along with a bottle of cava to get our stay off to a good start!

Barnaby's flat was great for us, as it was in the right location and felt very homely. When we arrived there was a bottle of cava (great start to any trip) and milk in the fridge. The listing description was accurate and matched the photos. Hove station is a short walk away and cafes/shops can be found within a 10-15 minute walk. Barnaby was very helpful whenever we made contact and also had had helpful contacts close by. Parking was additionally available close to the flat (which was an added bonus).
We had a great time at Barnaby's cosy home and he was very friendly & welcoming! The location is very convenient, walking distance to the station and the sea. Would recommend to all!
About the Host, Barnaby
The best way to describe me is to say what I love. I love surfing - it is the closest thing to bliss that I know, I love mountain biking on the Sussex downs and woods, I love eating good food although my girlfriend prefers to do the cooking which is nice for me too, I love dancing and I love the outdoors - I work for a nature charity and find it inspiring when children are excited by nature too! Oh, and energetic music too
