Simply stunning, is how you would describe The Gatehouse.
Self Catering Cottage Sleeps 2
A listed gatehouse with stone spiral staircase leading to romantic space, oak floors and far-reaching views across the Wye valley.
You can even climb up to the top of the tower. This ancient building's charm includes a steep spiral staircase.
How often does one get the chance to stay in a Grade II listed gatehouse built by Sir Bogo de Knovil, hunting buddy of Edward I? The structure is remarkable and you can sense history in the air. Enter to find a steep spiral stone stair with a grab rail and rope leave your biggest suitcases behind that leads to a lofty, galleried living space on the first floor then spirals upwards to a dressing room above, and then up again to the roof of the tower. From here views stretch to the Wye Valley, unroll all the way to the Severn, and, right below, is the lovely Tudor manor house, at the other end of the walled, lawned garden that is yours to share.
The Gate House is a comfortable and attractive space of white walls, oak floors and stone encased windows, a romantic bolthole for two; easy to imagine yourself on a dark night snuggled down on the sofa by the wood-burning fire, warm and cosy behind thick curtains and 700-year-old walls.
The bed lies ethereally up in the eaves; the living area (fresh modern kitchen, sparkling white wet room and sitting space) is below. There's a pub in the village and, at Whitebrook, the Michelin-starred Crown. You are ten minutes from the M48 yet you can set off on field-walks from the door.
