We stayed here for a week after seeing the place on Homes Under the Hammer. We like to look for unusual buildings to stay in so this fit the bill nicely. We booked over a year in advance; despite being on Hoseasons, we couldn’t book so far in advance via them, so I found the owner on Facebook and booked... more

Unfortunately the ceiling height in the bathroom is too low for a stand up shower, hence the lack of attachment. When we refitted the bathroom, it wasn't possible to fit the bath in... more

We had a wonderful 3 day break in the gate house. The owner was very helpful start to finish and there were some lovely touches such as fresh flowers and milk in the fridge. I would highly recommend this to anyone. It is very unique and very relaxing. more
