Wow, what an incredible place to stay. The house is just beautiful, with so much attention to detail. It feels super homey and comfortable, yet spacious. It was spotlessly clean on arrival, with a generous fridge-full of goodies. The towels are big and fluffy, and the bed and duvet were 5-star hotel quality. We took a walk around the gardens and that was absolutely magical. If you're looking for a peaceful getaway in style, then The Gatehouse is just perfect.

Thank you for such lovely feedback and thank you for leaving the house super tidy. You and family are welcome back - hopefully with Mum in tow next time. Best Wishes, Rosie

As soon as we enter the driveway with beautiful trees, its vision truly kick start its magical effect on us. As the panorama unfolds before our eyes, we felt all worldly worries melt away the during our stay at this lovely three rooms cottage surrounded by mature trees, with a magnificent and enchanted garden. Walk through the fabulous gardens and never want to leave this paradise. We had an excellent time. The property and rooms are beautiful. The owner, are incredibly welcoming and accommodating. We intend to go back again the next to just spend more time in the garden alone. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
