Spotlight on... Rottingdean
The historic village of Rottingdean is unique in that it’s just a stone’s throw from the beach, whilst bordering nearby Brighton and Hove and the stunning South Downs National Park. Perhaps no longer a well-kept secret in Sussex, many city dwellers have been looking to make the move for a quieter life in recent years. We asked Sales Manager, John Hill, to tell us more about the allure of Rottingdean.

Our main focus is in being honest and approachable with our advice and providing the best marketing for all our clients, whether they are selling a one bedroom flat or a £1m+ house. As a team, we strive to ensure everyone gets the same professional marketing and service.
Why is Rottingdean a great area to live?
Rottingdean has great history from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries as a smugglers’ village, so there are a lot of fetes commemorating this and, of course, plenty of other events that are held on the village green.
Plus, this part of the village is also home to The Jungle Book’s author Rudyard Kipling’s House, and incorporates the beautiful Kipling Gardens, a hotspot for visitors and excellent example of a typical English garden. The windmill, Beacon Mill, also generates lots of interest with visitors as it was built in 1802 in the Dutch smock mill style.
Rottingdean’s proximity to the seafront, picturesque white cliffs and easy access to Brighton, Brighton Marina, Hove and Newhaven makes the area a tremendous place to buy for long-term investment.
What local amenities does Rottingdean have?
Due to its unique location, there are not many historical villages with such good transport links, which makes Rottingdean an ideal place to live if you need to commute to Brighton or Newhaven for work. We’re also lucky to have a great variety of independent businesses in the area, from coffee shops, tea rooms and restaurants to antiques. Additionally, you have the ever popular Ovingdean and Saltdean with their own array of amenities just next door. It is a genuine pleasure to work here.
