I am 10 minutes from Gatwick airport and with pick up/drop off included in the tariff you will find the rural peace and quiet the ideal start or finish to your UK or overseas travel adventure.
Two en suite rooms are offered in this converted barn so this would be ideal for families. Located in the countryside with fields and seclusion this is the rural heart of the South of England but also only 30 minutes from central London by train. Reigate nearby offers many features of interest including the Priory with Priory park, a Norman castle and many countryside walks on the North Downs.
Don't worry about early pick ups or drop offs, I am an early riser.
I enjoy the company of my Airbnb guests and finding out about their lives and travel plans.
There are other accommodations listed that are closer to Gatwick Airport and if the noise of jet planes at a busy 24 hour airport appeals then these alternatives are for you.
A glass of wine in the evening and some conversation is always very pleasant.
The countryside with the birdlife and quiet.
Redhill to London Victoria train service is about 10 minutes away by car and is fast and frequent.
John is an excellent host. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. John was charming and interesting to talk to. The airport delivery and pick service worked like a dream. I will be recommending to any friends who need to spend a night near Gatwick. Thanks John!
We really enjoyed our stay at John's house. John en Judith are kind, warm and have a good sense of humor. John likes having guests and is really generous. He gave us good advice about interesting places in London.
The English breakfast was great!
We can certainly recommend staying at John's place!
John was simply amazing. He picked us up at the gatwick airport and kindly helped us with our luggages. I have always wanted to visit surrey/country side and John was so kind enough to give us a tour of the town the next morning before our flight back to vancouver! He was simply awesome. He made an amazing breakfast for both my mom and I and we fell in love with his cooking! Thank you John!! I would love to come back again and stay a little longer next time! I will miss ur breakfast and your amazing travel stories John!!
Our holiday could not have started better with our stay at John´s place. We immediately geared in full relax mode! John his warm hospitality really stands out! John is an amazingly generous host with a sparkling personality.
Collections at the airport, touring us around town, hiking tips, dinner suggestions, interesting conversations, even the arrangement of extra legroom seats on our connection flight (oh boy, did we enjoy that to the max!!), delicious breakfast for champions including largest fresh fruit salad bowl ever seen… He really spared no effort to spoil us rotten and feeling more than welcome!
We hope to meet again, and than stay a little longer next time!
John is a very nice welcoming person. He picked me up from the airprt and dropped me back even at this really early hour. I enjoyed the ensuite bathroom, and I got the best fruitsalad,(as that's what I wanted) I ever eat for breakfast. Thanks John
John was an excellent host and could not have been more welcoming & helpful. Our bedroom & en-suite bathroom were most comfortable and breakfast was stunning - make sure you have a good appetite if you ask for the Full English. There are good local pubs for meals in the evening. Highly recommended.
I can't say enough good things about John and Judith. He picked me up from the airport and dropped me to where I keep my car. The car was broken down and John ran me around to various locations like an old friend which was enormously helpful and greatly appreciated. The breakfast is excellant and far superior to the slop you get in most hotels. The house is in a lovely peaceful setting very convenient for the airport and close to Reigate which is a pleasant market town with plenty of restaurants and a few bars.
John is an amazing and generous host. His property is delightful and extremely comfortable. Having waited patiently to pick us up (we were late due to airport snafus) the hot cup of tea he served on our eventual arrival was just what we needed. John gave us lots of useful local information on where to go for dinner in Reigate, and offered to drive us there and pick us up later. Our room and bed in the converted barn were perfect, and over our superb 'full English breakfast' we watched the song birds feeding at the bird feeders in his English country garden.
The hearty welcome, ensuing conversations, attention to detail (fresh roses from the garden in the bedroom), proximity to Gatwick Airport, and relaxing comfort make John's home a must for any visit to the area.
I liked the chauffeur service. John picked me up from Reigate station to his home, took me back to Reigate later that evening so I could look round the place, before taking me back a second time and then returning me to Reigate in the morning. The room and the house generally were very clean. The cooked breakfast was good but it was so big I couldn't finish it. As a host John was very friendly.
John is a most welcoming and generous host. Nothing was too much trouble and he had thought of everything. We were leaving very early the next morning to catch a flight from Gatwick - he served a wonderful breakfast of warm croissants and fresh fruit salad (we chose this option as opposed to a cooked breakfast) and took us to the airport - all by 6.30am! He answers emails almost immediately and is uber efficient. We certainly hope to be staying with John next time we are in the area. Wonderful host!!
