Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! We had the opportunity to stay for a few days before the end of winter and we thoroughly loved it. We relaxed, soaked up the historical energy of the place and had the fireplace burning while we relaxed. It was clean, tidy and just magical!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noise is the issue The Gatehouse is a cute, historic property. Unfortunately, what the photos don’t show is that the railway line runs a few metres from the house with the highway a few metres from that. The noise continues night and day and sadly spoilt our recent 3 night stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Back in time We really enjoyed our stay in this historic house. It is 150 years old. It makes you fell like you have gone back in time.At the same time it has all the facilities of the modern house. Wonderful homeowner made us feel like at home and everything was clean and ready for our arrival. Heaters turned on and fireplace ready to go. It is very cosy and welcoming.
