Brimming with Edwardian features, this really is a stylish home within easy access to London, Brighton and Gatwick Airport.
We are only 100m from Horley mainline train station and easy walking distance to 2 large supermarkets and at least 10 restaurants including a famous charming 16th century inn called The Six Bells. We also have a charming characterful Wetherspoons pub serving cheap and huge hot meals and breakfast on the doorstep.
We live in a delightful and attractive English Edwardian house, and we would be very happy to welcome you here.
The bedroom is new large 6m x 3m, it is located on the second floor in the loft with low sloping ceilings with a maximum of 7 foot which adds to its charm. There is a bathroom in the loft suite too. This new bathroom has a designer Bette bath tub, toilet and basin.

Gatwick parking is available - £5 per 24 hour period if staying or £6 if you don't stay. It is dependent on availability.
PLEASE NOTE I don't want to let you down so please don't request a booking more than six weeks in advance.
The staircase to the loft is narrow and steep so unsuitable for heavy cases i.e. which need to be left at the bottom of the stairs. In addition if you are of limited mobility / faculty and cant cope with stairs, staying is at your risk.
We have reduced the price by 50% because we are in a transition phase and are completing renovation work. This means that the kitchen is part fitted, the loft staircase is awaiting carpet and the hallway is being replastereed and the old carpet will be replaced with new carpet when the work is completed.
The bedroom and bathroom for the room are finished.
In the future once the work is done we are happy to offer reduced rates for longer periods for flight crew First Officer pilot / Captain training or commuting.

Life started with a relentless pursuit of academic paper qualifications, culminating in 2 degrees gained through the British University system. This was followed by a city position in London and the fun daily commute. Now more content I am primarily based at home, only a short distance from Gatwick Airport and have great access to the world on my doorstep.
