Famous connections are nothing new for Strawberry Fields!
We have had our share of celebrity guests, from the actor Frazier Hines (remember Emmerdale), to ‘Just A Minute’s’ Nicholas Parsons and with our lovely location, Gordon Ramsey chose us to film as a backdrop for his Kitchen Nightmares show about Love’s fish restaurant – although we hasten to add there are NO kitchen nightmares here!!
From the iconic Beatles song ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ (a refrain we frequently hear from passers by) – through to the recent incarnation of “Strawberry Fields” as an MI6 agent murdered by being drowned in oil in the Bond film ‘Quantum of Solace’. Strawberry Fields is an instantly recognisable name – and now it’s the turn of our Brighton Guest House to be famous too!
Strawberry Fields Guest House stars in the latest Peter James novel ‘Want You Dead’ as the hideout of a stalker who is determined that ‘If he can’t have her, then nobody can…’ (see extract below).
The book has just launched, we haven’t read all of it yet, but so far we have spotted six references to Strawberry Fields.
We enjoyed meeting Peter again at the launch party last week and to celebrate we have got 50 ‘give away’ copies of ‘Dead Simple’ (the first in the massively popular Roy Grace series) to give to our guests and Peter has kindly signed some special Strawberry Fields copies of “Want You Dead’ which we are offering to guests at a 30% off the published price with a donation to the ‘white ribbon’ appeal for each one!
So, come and get them! Please mention ‘Dead Simple’ or ‘Want you Dead’ offers when you book so we can reserve a copy for you. We’re sure both will be popular so please be quick to ensure you get your copy. Contact us now

For Bryce is obsessed with her, and he intends to destroy everything and everyone she has ever known and loved – and then her too . . .
