Ngexesha lokuhlala kwakho

Hi everyone, I'm Rachel, married to Barney and busy Mum to two daughters. Born and raised in Northern Ireland - hence the quirks you will spot in our property should you book. I came to England in January 1998 to work for BWA and later that year joined Japan Airlines as a member of London Heathrow Base Cabin Crew. Through my job and training I developed a love of the travel service industry. I especially enjoyed meeting people from many different nationalities and loved taking care of them during our long flight times. These days I prefer to have both feet firmly on the ground and look forward to welcoming guests into our home. I will be available throughout your stay and look forward to welcoming you into our family kitchen for a cuppa and to chat all things West Sussex and more. If its peace and quiet you're after you will find everything you need to know about the property and area in your Guest Information folder.
