Holiday Rental House /
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
This Grade II listed, mini Gothic castle was built in 1850 and now makes an unusual and unique holiday home. It is believed to have been built as the gate house for the officers accommodation for the Dover Castle Garrison who were housed in an impressive crescent of homes in Victoria Park.

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 easily accessible and well worth a visit. Shops 0.5 mi...

Excellent location within walking distance to Dover city center, grocery shop, train station, bus stops, sea front and the White Cliffs. Just outside of the Dover castle, so one can visit as often as one wishes. Or can walk along the cliffs, or even take a longer hike to Walmer or Deal. Very well equipped house, everything is very convenient.... more

The Gatehouse is just out of town and close to the castle, but not too far away to enjoy the facilities. Accommodation very clean, with a nice old world feel. Great for two people or someone travelling on their own. The kitchen is very well appointed with a good selection of just about everything you need. Cosy real fire effect... more

My husband and I stayed here for almost a week. The owner quickly responded to our queries and made access, etc., quite easy to follow. The towels and linens were in great condition, and once we got the hang of the thermostat, we stayed snug and warm whether downstairs or upstairs. I especially appreciated the hair dryer in the vanity... more
