Nic's amazing home is straight out of a "Homes & Gardens" Magazine. A renovated cottage, it is a perfect blend of contemporary modern and traditional design, its furniture and soft furnishings looked new and of a very high quality.
Although this was our first experience of Air B & B, Nic put us totally at ease with his sincere and warm welcome. He is an extremely kind and attentive host and made us feel at home without being intrusive. He allowed us to use his fully equipped kitchen to prepare some basic meals, as well as allocating us space in his huge refrigerator for our goodies. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and well maintained and we especially appreciated his super fast wifi a rare commodity in the countryside. The shower rooms were a little compact, but for us, this only added to the charm of staying in a real English country cottage. If you are lucky, Nic might let you look in his studio where he creates his stunning designs. We discovered he is an award winning Garden Designer, so it was a wonderful treat to be able to sit in his very own garden and enjoy all the beautiful flowers in the Spring sunshine. A final bonus - the cottage is ideally located for the restaurants and shops in Reigate and Crawley. Gatwick Airport is a 20 minute drive away and there are fast trains from Redhill Station to the centre of London and also to Brighton and the coast. Hever Castle and Winston Churchill's Chartwell home are also a short drive away. Would we stay again? Absolutely, we would return in a heartbeat! Thank you Nic and Air B & B for bringing us together.
