Our cosy terraced cottage is situated in the picturesque conservation area of St Johns. It has a sunny patio and garden which backs onto woodland; an ideal base from which to explore the local area. London is 30 minutes by train from Redhill. Gatwick Airport is 7 minutes by train or 15 minutes by car. Enterprise car hire is nearby and they can drop off and collect. Car parking is available off the lane in front of the cottages. Perfect for a couple, three adults or for a family!

The space

The cottage still retains many period cottage features and has been tastefully updated and fitted with full gas central heating throughout for warm cosy nights in. The hall, bathroom, stairs and both bedrooms have fitted carpet.

The Sitting Room
The cottage front door opens into the sitting room with original fire place, comfy sofa, armchair, flat screen tv, dvd player and large feature rug. The sitting room window looks out onto a lovely green surrounded by trees.

The Hall
The sitting room opens out into an internal hall and stairs to the bedrooms. The hall leads through to the kitchen/dining area. Note the stairs are steep and typical of a period cottage.

The Bathroom
A door from the internal hall leads to the bathroom with white suite and shower above the bath. Lovely fluffy towels provided!

The Kitchen
The kitchen has new fitted luxury gloss blue/grey units, electric oven with gas hob and cooker hood, microwave oven, toaster etc. and built in dishwasher and washing machine/tumble dryer. It is fully equipped with cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery for four people. The dining area has a new retro style fridge/freezer and a drop down retro/industrial light over a dining table with four chairs. The kitchen opens out into the garden.

Patio and Garden
Steps lead up to a beautiful patio area with wrought iron garden table and chairs, all surrounded by shrubs and flowers. The garden is sheltered and positioned to be in sun all day. The garden leads up through a gate into the woods.

Bedroom 1
Fitted with a luxury pocket sprung king size bed with crisp, freshly laundered sheets, bedside tables with reading lamps, wardrobe, chair and with a window overlooking the lane and green outside. We have a travel cot and bedding available for infants up to 15kg and it is possible to place it here.

Bedroom 2
Fitted with a luxury pocket sprung small double bed (4 foot wide), lovely bed linen, bedside tables with reading lamps and window overlooking the garden and woods beyond.

Guest access

Everywhere! This is not our main home so the cottage, patio and garden is all yours during your stay. The cottage has a lovely restful atmosphere so we hope you will relax and make yourself at home.

Interaction with guests

We live five miles away and are always available by text, email or telephone should you need any help or advice. However, we aim to be led by you so there will be as little or as much interaction as you prefer.

Other things to note

Please note that the bed in the second bedroom is a small double - four foot wide as opposed to the usual four foot six inches. It is ideal for one adult or for two children. If to be used by two adults please satisfy yourself that that you will be comfortable. We want you to be happy!

The stairs are steep and narrow as is typical in a period cottage. We do not have stair gates.

The hosts are very welcoming and accommodating. The cottage was well equipped and was in a great location. This is a perfect air band b stay

Maureen presents this beautiful cottage in a peaceful picturebook setting. The garden is a haven with birds, bees, butterflies. The larder stocked with well considered items saw us generously through first day including most important excellent ground coffee beans! Beds comfortable, neighbours friendly, sunday bell ringing, we hope to be back!

We stayed at this cottage for two nights after spending 28 days traveling through Europe. This was our last stop the perfect location to end our trip as we were flying out of Gatwick airport and were very "done" with traveling. We stayed in 11 Airbnbs during our trip and this was one of the cutest it was also one where we felt very taken care of by our hosts. Check in was great because we got a lock box code which was great because we missed some trains and arrived very late. Maureen and Mike had left us a welcome note as well as maps and instructions on how to get to the grocery store, and local eateries, but honestly, they also left us enough snacks and provisions in order to get by without going to the store! The beds were comfortable and all of the linens smelled fresh and floral. We did not want for anything.

We had a lovely stay at the cottage and would be happy to return. We were pleasantly surprised by the provisions left in the kitchen. The house is a pleasure to stay in with a good level of equipment i.e. television and kitchen. the garden is a pleasure to spend time in. on the whole a very plesant experiance.

We could not have been more pleased with the space, the location and Maureen. Her place is everything one would want from an English cottage. Beautiful surroundings. If we return for a visit to London, we would most definitely would stay in Redhill again. Maureen is a wonderful host.
