Travellers' Choice
Trumbles is a Victorian house set in an elevated position in peaceful, open countryside located in the charming village of Charlwood, near Dorking, Reigate, Horley and Gatwick Airport. The airport is just a 10 minute drive away. Trumbles is the perfect B&B if you are flying to or from Gatwick due to its proximity to the airport (without being directly under the flight path), great value holiday parking and friendly, family-run atmosphere. Rooms are spacious and all have en-suite facilities. Transport TO and FROM Gatwick is available 06.00 - 22.00. Guests staying at Trumbles often comment on how peaceful it is.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at Trumbles B&B for the beginning and end of our holiday. We had a very warm welcome and the room was lovely. We were leaving too early for a cooked breakfast on the day of our outbound flight but there was a very good selection of continental breakfast. We had a delicious cooked breakfast on the return leg of our holiday. The secure parking and pick up/drop off at Gatwick Airport made for a relaxing start and finish to our holiday. Would highly recommend.

A perfect stopover for our Gatwick flight. Lovely furnished room with large comfortable bed. Nice touch to have fresh milk in the mini fridge when making hot drinks. Bathroom was equally spacious. Fresh cooked breakfast to start the day off. Easy transfer to terminal. Very pleasant hosts.

Car parking: Our car was charged for us and safely stored while we were away on holiday. The keys all kept securely and then the car was all ready for us to use when David brought us back from Gatwick. Charge rate and parking fee is very reasonable but we felt happier leaving it at Trumbles while we were away. Room: Spotless with generous tea and coffee facilities provided, even bottled water and biscuits- a lovely touch! Bed was so comfortable we had warm and restful nights sleep on the two nights before and after our holiday. Bathroom facility spotless and provides everything for showers and washing. Room 3 is sheer luxury, the bathroom is spacious and beautiful. Breakfast: Help yourself cereal, toast, tea and coffee. There is a fridge stocked with milk, fruit juices, yogurts and fresh fruit salad. Julia's cooked breakfasts are just perfect. Fresh cooked mushrooms and tomatoes (not tinned!) Then 2 thick slices of bacon, sausage, baked beans and an egg either scrambled, fried or poached as requested . Then toast to follow and plenty of tea or coffee. Really wonderful. Hosts: David and Julia make a marvellous team together and really are the perfect Hosts! They have thought of everything to cater for your stay with them. We are so grateful to them both for taking away all the stresses we faced when our original flight was cancelled and we had to re-arrange our booking. They have a 'can do' attitude and made our holiday better for this! Thank you so much David and Julia, you deserve 5 stars and more!

Great comfortable and clean place and super friendly, very quiet. Good location to cycle (next time) in the Surry hills, as well as Gatwick base for night with on-site secure parking and drop-off and collection (spot on time) thanks David, from airport.

Absolutely brilliant- as it was last time we were here. A very warm welcome, a delicious breakfast, somewhere to leave our car while we’re away, and drop off and pickup from the airport 15mins away. This has been a perfect stay for us once again.

We were flying from Gatwick and stayed at this B&B overnight. We had never stayed here before and were guided by the many positive reviews which are entirely justified. Trumbles is located a couple of miles from Gatwick. Our room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, we had to depart for the airport early and so couldn’t stay for breakfast. Trumbles offers parking and a shuttle to the airport up to 10pm. The B&B is run by a couple who do an excellent job meeting the various client demands and requirements. There are 2 nice pubs nearby for evening meals Thoroughly recommend

We booked last minute and were given a wonderful, clean & spacious room. It was well equipped with a comfortable bed and good pillows. David couldn’t do enough for us. We will take advantage of the parking and airport transfer next time. We would highly recommend.

Very welcoming and accommodating. David and Julie are excellent hosts. They made us feel like we had known them for years. A comfortable stay with everything needed for a good nights sleep before travelling from Gatwick only 10 minutes away by car. We took advantage of their personal taxi service which they offer to the airport which was a lot cheaper than local companies. Breakfast was delicious and tasty. We would recommend this stop over if you're travelling from Gatwick airport. Very useful for leaving your car there too as this is also a money saver than airport parking.
