About our home

We live in a large detached Victorian house with many original period features in a leafy suburban street about a mile from the sea. Downstairs, there is a large comfortable living room, a quiet piano/reading room and a billiard room with a 8ft x 4ft snooker/pool table with French doors opening to the garden. There is a 25ft modern kitchen dining room which also opens out onto the garden. The garden is walled with a little summerhouse which we use as a playroom for the children and there is decked area with table and chairs to dine outside. There are 5 generous double bedrooms over 3 floors with a family and 1 en-suite bathroom.
We also own a rustic stone cottage in Carmarthenshire, Wales with 3 bedrooms which is also available as part of our exchange. It is located in a rural area surrounded by open countryside. It has one double bedroom, one small bedroom with a triple bunk and a small single. The living area downstairs is open plan with separate kitchen. There is a woodburner which provides heating and an open fireplace.

Where is it?


Brighton is a vibrant city on the South coast of England, well-known for its Victorian architecture, quaint shops and artistic community. It benefits from being 55 mins from London by train so is perfect for day trips. It is surround by the South Down National Park which is beautiful for walking and mountain biking and only 10 mins drive from the house.

The cottage in Wales is about 250 miles or 5 hours from Brighton. It is a very peaceful spot but it has no TV! It is located near the market towns of Carmarthen (about 20 mins drive) and Llandeilo (about half an hour). It is close to the Brechfa forest, well known for walking and mountain biking. The spectacular Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire coastline is approximately 40 mins drive.
