Advantages: Cheap, friendly, close to airport
The Copperwood Guest House is situated only five minutes drive from Gatwick Airport and offers a comfortable overnight stay before catching that flight! Arrangements can also be made for holiday parking - £2 a night when I stayed in April, which is half the price one would normally expect pay to park at Gatwick Airport itself.
This small family run guest house has five comfortable rooms (ranging from singles to a family room). It is only two minutes walk from Horley Town Centre with its shops, pubs and restaurants (for those with families I would recommend the Wacky Warehouse). The proprietors are most helpful and will give you directions to the local eateries, or in fact the local railway station (just a short walk away).
The bedrooms are clean and nicely decorated with tea and coffee making facilities, wash basins, electric shaver points and full central heating (hairdryers and irons available on request). Our room was en suite (£56) although some have shared facilities. Children are made to feel welcome and cots are provided if necessary. We had a baby with us and were offered the use of the fridge in the breakfast room and even milk for her bottle if we needed it! Incidentally, this is a non- smoking guest house.
A full English breakfast is served from 7.30 – 8.30 (although a self service continental breakfast is offered for those departing on earlier flights). The breakfast room has a pay phone, easy chairs and magazines and is available to guests at all times.
Free lifts to the airport are offered – an excellent service and we certainly took it up. In fact, the proprietor, after dropping us off, ran around looking for an airport trolley for us and gave us directions to the check in desk area (Gatwick Airport can be quite confusing if you’re a first timer).
The Copperwood is quite easy to get to. It is just 10 minutes from Junction 9 of the M23 and should you decide to book, you will be se

I have stopped there twice now and would definitely stop again. In conclusion, it is close to the airport, with cheap secure parking for the duration of your holiday, a free lift to the airport and should you decide to stop there, you will undoubtedly be made to feel very welcome!
