I have a quiet bedroom available, with a double bed, en-suite bathroom and garden views. Pick up, drop off and a full English breakfast (very late or very early no problem!) are all included. Parking is also available on request.

The space

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.

Included in the price are a full English breakfast, and a lift to/from the airport or station.

Located in the countryside with fields and seclusion, this is the rural heart of the South of England - but is 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 a very early riser. I enjoy the company of my Airbnb guests, and hearing about their lives and travel plans.

There are other accommodations listed that are closer to Gatwick Airport. If the noise of jet planes at a busy 24 hour airport appeals, then these alternatives are for you.

Guest access

There is parking available in my driveway if you need it. If you wish to leave your vehicle whilst you are away I charge much less than Gatwick parking services so please enquire. Each room has its own en-suite bathroom and plenty of privacy.

Interaction with guests

A glass of wine in the evening and some conversation is always very pleasant. I am happy to run you to a lovely local pub for an evening meal and a pint with the locals.

John is an amazing host. He goes the extra mile to make sure your stay is special. We already want to come back a second time.

John is a superb host! He coordinated our pick up and drop off at Gatwick airport flawlessly, welcomed us to his home by inviting us to have tea with him and his partner, Judith, and then drove us to a lovely pub nearby for dinner. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and John provided a tour of Reigate before dropping us off right at the departures terminal at the airport with plenty of time to catch our flight out the next day. We enjoyed interesting conversation and felt very welcome in his home!

If you are looking for a country escape, home away from home with a fabulous host, this is for you! The bedroom was spacious with an en suite bathroom and tea and coffee making facilities. John kindly dropped us off and picked us up from an event we were going to the night we stayed. He also ensured we had a lovely breakfast the following morning. I would not hesitate to recommend John to any friends of family, we couldn't have asked for a more attentive and thoughtful host! We look forward to coming back again in the future to stay with John!

I loved everything about staying at Reigate! Comfy bed, Wonderful people to connect with and laugh, beautiful nature and 10 minutes from Gatwick. John was THE most excellent host. Besides taking care of everything in a very courteous and mindful manner, he was delightful to talk to and had a great sense of humor. I am delighted that I was able to stay at this lovely place in between flights from the US to Malta. AND I truly hope to have the opportunity to return.

This was our second time staying at John's place, and once again he was an impeccable host. If you are travelling out of Gatwick airport, this is an ideal place to stay. We travelled out from London via train the night before, John picked us up at the train station, brought us to his wonderful place in the countryside, fed us a wonderful breakfast next morning, and drove us the ten minute journey to Gatwick in lots of time to catch our flight. Much easier than trying to navigate trains out the morning of the flight, and risk train delays.

We cannot recommend this place highly enough! John waited at the airport to pick us up, despite our delayed flight that arrived well after midnight. We were exhausted after a long journey, but there he was, waiting patiently to take us, along with our 2 year old son to his beautiful home for a few hours of badly needed sleep! The bed was perfectly comfortable and the room very nicely decorated and comfortable for a lovely stay. In the morning, John made sure we were awake on time, then made us a simply wonderful breakfast- complete with really excellent coffee - before driving us back to Gatwick airport for our morning flight. John is a really welcoming, warm and interesting person. We look forward to staying with him again on our next trip flying through Gatwick. (Though it would be fun to stay longer next time and explore the beautiful countryside surrounding his home!)
