John is an airbnb 'superhost' for a good reason. The quality of the whole experience with John was exemplary and he really makes you feel at home - from the tea, breakfast, very comfortable bed and great conversation; we really could not have asked for more.
Going above and beyond, John also very kindly drove us to a nearby pub in the evening which has excellent food and great local atmosphere. In short, John's country home was a great experience all around and I look forward to returning. If you have a flight from Gatwick especially, check in here - you will not be disappointed!
Very welcoming, as described on the website and in a very quiet location.
John was the perfect host. We arrived slightly later than planned resulting in a mad rush to get to the wedding in time. To help and avoid any further delay John drove us to the church (a good 40min round trip). The room was very comfortable and John cooked a wonderful breakfast in the morning. John was a very accommodating and clearly enjoys meeting new people from all over the world. I would recommend a stay at this lovely home to anyone.
It was an absolute delight staying with John. I must say that he is the most extraordinary host. The cooked breakfast is supreme and John was very gracious and generous. He even made me a sandwich to take with me one day. John's natural bubbly conversation is most interesting as he's had a fascinating life and is well travelled. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the room is comfortable with its own en-suite. I definitely plan to stay there again if I'm ever near the area. I was made most welcome by both John and his charming girlfriend, Judith. I would highly recommend it.
Everything you could want in a restful stay in the English countryside: good company (John and Judith), good times (beautiful nature and comfortable accommodation), and (most importantly) good food!
We had an excellent experience during our stay. John went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and we very much enjoyed his company. The facilities exceeded our (email hidden)e convenient location and John's help in getting us to Gatwick made this the perfect option for our overnight stay. Highly recommended!
A delightful country setting with all mod cons and a very hospitable host who is a talented chef!
Everything worked perfectly. John was most helpful. Bed, room and ensuite were comfortable, we would do this again if going via Gatwick.
I missed my flight from Gatwick and was so upset. Then I read the reviews on John and his home and asked if I could stay the night. He picked me up in a jiffy at such short notice from the north terminal. He was so nice and grandfatherly, felt like family. I was at ease at once and cheered up. He is soft-spoken and polite and his gf Judith came over in the evening, she is as sweet as him.
John is the best host one could ask for. He drove me to the pub for dinner and to nearby Priory Park in the morning. Made the best English breakfast of eggs sausage and bacon I've ever eaten. We chatted about the birds in his garden and the planes that flew overhead.
The thing is he does this to meet people from around the world and share stories. He doesn't do it only for the money. He's so real and genuine. I would DEFINITELY stay here again if I had the chance. Lovely home, lovely people. Thank you John and Judith.
You cannot miss this wonderful experience in Gatwick: the house is very nice, warm and super clean, and it is located in a very picturesque, fabulous place. You will find the most comfortable bed you have never tried and in the restroom you can find the bidet: it's a unusual to find it abroad!
John is very friendly and helpful and , moreover, he is a great chef. He prepares an unforgettable breakfast : homemade bread, fresh fruit salad, fresh orange juice and marmalade and ,of course, english breakfast with scramble eggs with bacon, sausage and mushrooms...delicious!
John is a super nice person and he take care of our delivery from and to the airport. Moreover He took us to the station to visit London and , in the evening took us to the nice countryside pub...five stars customer care!!!!!!!! The last morning he took us for a walk in a park and our daughter, 5 yrs old, had a great fun in a supervise playground. We warmly recommend the John's house and we will visit him in the next stopover in Gatwick.
Thanks a lot for your warm hosting you make us happy
Judith and her friends were pleasant guests, friendly and easy to talk to. Communication beforehand worked very well, always a plus when arranging check-in times. We had an enjoyable time chatting in the evening and over breakfast. Recommended as guests!
John and Judith are simply lovely. It was such a treat to meet them during their visit to Seattle. They were wonderful to communicate with and were amazingly accommodating when dealing with a random and unfortunate maintenance issue that arose during their visit. I am very appreciative of their flexibility and proactive outlook, and I look forward to seeing them again and checking out their fabulous property in the UK. Thanks guys!
