Property code: 64950

Located in the small seaside town of Saltdean, on the edge of the South Downs National Park, this cottage is within easy reach of the famous Saltdean Lido, nearby beach, shops, pubs and restaurants. Keen walkers and cyclists can explore the many trails that the South Downs has to offer. Brighton Marina is a short drive away with its range of restaurants and leisure facilities, whilst the centre of Brighton is a shopper’s paradise offering boutique shopping combined with fantastic places to eat and drink. Children will love exploring the Brighton Sea life Centre, or why not enjoy a walk on the famous pier or a trip up the i360 viewing tower that offers spectacular views along the Sussex coastline.

Enter this stylish and elegant cottage into the hallway, where there is space for dropping off coats and boots. Walk through to the wonderfully light and airy lounge which offers the ideal place to relax after a long walk, on the comfy sofas and armchair. On chilly evenings light the wood burner and curl up with a glass of wine to plan the following days’ adventures or catch up with your favourite TV programmes on the Smart TV. The well-equipped kitchen offers an electric oven and gas hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and Nespresso coffee machine. The microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer are located in the adjacent utility room. Family meals can be enjoyed in the dining room overlooking the garden around the dining table with six chairs, and for those looking to relax with a good book, enjoy spending time in the snug with patio doors that open out onto the garden. Turned stairs from the hallway lead up to the first floor where there are three bedrooms, a king-size zip-and-link (which can be made up as a twin on request), a king-size and a single with sea views. The bathroom offers a shower over bath and WC, and there is also an additional separate WC off the entrance hall.

Outside there is a fully enclosed garden with a patio table and chairs and a charcoal BBQ. There is private parking for two cars.

This is a lovely house. A real home from home. Very well appointed and lots of thoughtful touches. Great welcome pack. It's very handy for enjoying the buzz of Brighton but is in a quiet, peaceful road if you want to get away from it all. We would really recommend it.

This was our third stay at Starlings, a really comfortable holiday cottage in a great location. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space with a separate dining room and a cosy snug. Great walks along the undercliff, lots of little cafes and pubs in Rottingdean to visit. Plus only a 20 minute bus ride to all the shops, culture and theatreRead mores in Brighton. We will definitely visit again. Hide

This property has certainly raised the bar and other holiday cottage owners can only aspire to. The property is beautifully decorated with great attention to detail.
