    The Gate House stands part way up a hill, close to both Dover Castle and the town itself. The accommodation offers a turret, exposed beams throughout upstairs and down, open fireplaces and other historical features.

    Dover has plenty to offer visitors including Dover Castle, the wartime tunnels, Roman painted house, easy access for trips to France and walks along the famous white cliffs. Castles at Walmer and Deal; the medieval town of Sandwich; many beaches around the east Kent coastline are all easi...

Just returned today after a four night break in The Gate House & we absolutely loved every second of it, so did the dog! It truly is a getaway in a private, quaint little castle & has everything you could need. Walking distance to the town, castle & seafront and very short drive to a lovely walk on The White... more

Stayed here In October 2014 . I could find no fault with the accomodation . Everywhere was clean and tidy . We arrived ealier than expected but were able to move straight in . The custodian returned a while later o check that all was working well . The gatehouse is warm and cosy and set in a quiet location... more

Management response:

I'm so glad you liked the Gate House, though I completely agree with you about the steepness of the hill, a challenge especially on windy days and the one way system is tricky until you get used to it. Please do come back and visit again soon. more
