With every room so magically infused with storybook enchantment, you could well spend your entire time at Wonderland House wandering around in open-mouthed awe!
A grand Regency house that’s perfectly positioned by Brighton’s laid-back, bustling seafront and shops, the award-winning retreat showcases spectacular sea views, as well as boasting six artistic, individually named and styled bedrooms, generously arranged over five floors.
Sleeping groups of up to 24 guests, this is the ideal setting for quirky family get-togethers, or fun-filled celebrations that demand something a little more unique.
Choose from bedrooms that sleep two or three guests, including the shimmering Mirror Mirror Room, with its opulent ‘boudoir’ feel that’s a must for glamorous types.
Or how about Alice’s Room, which features a French antique double bed with a gorgeous lace canopy, and a whimsical wall of looking glasses? The silver-and-gold, playing card-bedecked lounge can also sleep up to three guests if needed.
But for those who don’t mind sharing, there are two huge, sea view bedrooms that each sleep up to six guests. The art deco-style Flamingo Dreams Room is adorned with upside-down ‘croquet mallets’, and a pink feather light shade, while the Queen of Hearts Room includes jewelled wallpaper, and a bespoke ‘playing card’ bunkbed with hatboxes as steps.
You may be a while choosing your favourite bedroom… but they certainly aren’t the end of the amazing discoveries you’ll make at Wonderland House. In fact, they’re just the beginning!Keep reading

Things to note

What the guests of Wonderland House say
“A real treasure trove!”
“As the organiser of my Sister’s Hen Weekend, I was fortunate enough to find the stunning Wonderland House. Everything about this property is perfect, from it’s interior to it’s location… Not forgetting the pleasure we had in dealing with the owner who went above and aboard to ensure we had a pleasant stay. The House speaks for itself in every way, the kitchen is stocked with cutlery and crockery and every bedroom had fresh linen and towels. No expense has been spared and it shows.”
“Wonderland House is amazing. The attention to detail is incredible and made the whole stay magical. There were 18 of us staying here for my hen weekend and every single person was in awe of the beautiful house. I would highly recommend Wonderland House and have already started planning to stay at the sister property Looking Glass Cottage. Thank you to Jacqueline for creating this amazing place, and for being so helpful with the booking.”
