Ah, September. The month when the brightness and heat fades out, to be replaced by the golden glow of impending autumn, rainy days, and the reappearance of jumpers and coats.

The children, fresh from six weeks off, return to school in new oversized jumpers, with a pencil case of shiny new pens. The house is a bomb site, the kids in their sun-fuelled excitement have run you ragged. You gave up trying to tidy up after them by the first week of August. You walk away from the school gates on that first day back, feeling like you’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards, but like your holiday has just begun. It’s back to work, back to keeping house; normal life resumes at last.

Before you settle back into everyday life, however, why not take a little time to get away from it all with your partner, or a friend, for a few days? A little time for you, a little grown-up fun after all that parenting, is a great way to restore your energy levels and effectively press the restart button, so you can come back fresh and ready to conquer the impending winter months with a relaxed and happy attitude.

As the summer heat drains out of Britain, there are still many destinations across Europe just begging to be enjoyed. From the south of France, to Sardinia and Sicily, to the Greek islands, there is enough September sun for everyone, right on your doorstep. Flights from Gatwick airport run all year round to these great destinations. Start your journey to your September sun spot with a night at Gable End guest house, and we will make sure you get to the airport well rested and happy, so you can start relaxing into holiday mode as soon as possible.

If heading to sunnier climes is a bit out of budget after months of spending out on keeping the kids entertained, then you need not look much further than the south of England. Our high quality Gatwick bed and breakfast is the ideal base from which to enjoy everything that this beautiful corner of England has to offer. Just a quick train ride into the capital from Gatwick airport train station, you can spend some time living it up in London, or alternatively head out into the countryside around Surrey and Sussex. No word of a lie, the south east has some of the most picturesque rural scenery in the country. There really is the best of both worlds here, and you deserve to enjoy it any way you want to.

Though autumn may be less obviously gorgeous than sunny summer days, here in the south of England, this season is a rich rainbow of natural beauty. As the leaves turn golden and deep red, and the fruit ripens on the trees, the English country pubs down here near Gatwick start lighting their cosy open fires and serving spiced mulled cider. The beautiful south comes to a warm, comfortable maturity, perfect for a break with the one you love.

However you plan to enjoy your September break, when you make our Gatwick B&B your base, you are guaranteed a welcoming home away from home. Our friendly team and clean, comfortable surroundings are just a couple of reasons why Gable End is the perfect place to stay. If you’re staying with us for the night before your flight to a September sun destination, or using us as your base from which to discover the bright lights of London or the golden autumn countryside, it will be a pleasure to have you.
