The space

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.
The bed is a luxurious bed (£1000 Relyon twin/single bed combination). We offer a choice of duvets (natural / synthetic) guaranteeing a comfortable nights sleep.
We have free superfast wifi.
NB breakfast available after 7am only.

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. We are amazingly convenient for flight crew for all Airlines B A British Airways - Hanger 6; EasyJet - Jubilee House Training centre; Virgin Atlantic - The Base and CAE - Pilot training centre on Fleming Way can be easily reached for between 1 minute - 20 minutes on foot or by car/public transport.

Please check in before 10pm to minimise disturbance.
Later check in is possible only by prior arrangement.
There is no additional charge if we are out for the evening but if I have wait up beyond 10pm there is a charge of £10 per hour between 10pm and midnight and £15 per hour after midnight.

My stay with Sofia was very comfortable and she made me feel at home from the moment I arrived. Communication was excellent even helping with travel schedules and suggestions. Sofia ordered a taxi for me to Gatwick Airport early in the morning using her own phone. The room was very neat and tidy and the bathroom is very clean. Highly recommended hosts. Thanks Sofia :) Andrew

Staying with Sofia before our early morning flight from Gatwick was perfect. Really lovely room and facilities. Sofia saved the day when she checked and discovered our morning train had been cancelled. This left us enough time to arrange a cab instead (which was even better as it was raining very hard)!

I had a great stay at Sofia's. The location is perfect for Gatwick, it is literally only 1 minute's walk from Horley station, and the train from Horley to Gatwick takes 3 minutes. The room is a super cute attic and really well equipped, including your own (spotlessly clean) bathroom all tucked under the eves. Sofia was really helpful with advice for my onward travel - including suggesting getting my train ticket for Gatwick the night before to save queuing in the morning rush hour which was a big help. The breakfast was tasty and Sofia was really friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend and I'd be very happy to stay again if I have another early flight to catch.

Sofia was a tremendous host who made us feel very welcome, we stayed in the loft room which was very clean and tidy, the beds were very comfortable lovely to sleep in, the breakfast in the morning was delicious with lots to choose from. Sofia even came to the train station (located very close to her house) to help us get on the correct train. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Sofia as a host

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.
