What the owner says;
'We have very much enjoyed living in Rottingdean. Spending summers with a gin and tonic or a coffee on the seafront which is never half as packed as Brighton basking in the sunshine then watching the beautiful sunset.
Walking along the picturesque white cliffs into the marina or on into town.
Winters are just as perfect here, being able to enjoy the cosy pubs, taking the dog for long walks over by the windmill and returning home to the smell of everyone burning their open fires.
Only taking 10 mins to get into town and feeling like your in a countryside village is a joy, I hope who ever lives here will be as happy as we have been'.

Rottingdean Village dates back to the Domesday book and for centuries it was an isolated rural farming settlement only becoming more accessible when Brighton grew as a town.
Rottingdean has always been popular with artists, writers and public figures which still influence visitors and residents today.
The main village attractions are the historic buildings, the traditional inns, Kipling Garden, Rottingdean Windmill and St Margarets Church, Whipping Post House and the fact that you can access the beach from the High Street!
From the mid seventeenth century smugglers ran contraband cargoes from landing sites nearby and hid their goods in caves which were dug into the cliffs, there were tunnels connecting the cellars of houses and inns which ran under the High Street up to the Green. To put a stop to the smuggling a customs house was set up in the High street and the streets were patrolled at night, Rottingdean windmill was also used to signal that the coast was clear. When the coast was clear the illegal merchandise was transported to London’s black market. Some of these haunts can still be visited and was written about by Rudyard Kipling who lived in the village between 1897 and 1902. The last case reported of smugglers was in 1827 however to commemorate this piece of history Rottingdean Village has a yearly ‘smugglers procession’. There is a torch light procession through the village and a service at the Green followed by a bonfire and firework display on the beach.
Today you will find pubs, cafes and a variety of shops in the High Street and schools from Primary (St Margaret’s C of E, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School and to High School (Longhill High School in Ovingdean). There are several buses that can be caught from the Village and the A259 into Brighton City Centre and Woodingdean for more local shops.
Woodingdean is a beautiful area that offers all the benefits of country living just 3 miles outside of Brighton. It's rural-in-the-city, with free parking. And the deepest hand-dug well in the world.The area has a real feeling of community – typified by the annual Christmas get-together for businesses on Warren Road. Many locals have spent the majority of their lives in the area.Popular with Brightonians looking to settle down – without leaving the city completely behind - there's nothing quite like starting the day cresting the hill of Falmer Road, and coming home to vegetables from your own patch.Read more
