“Perfect for weekend away ”
Reviewed 25 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The Gatehouse has everything you could want for a birthday weekend away! The hot tub is a lovely feature to have and the pool is big enough to feel you can really swim. Kitchen table allows everyone to sit and eat together and the layout means the cook doesn't feel left out! Only downside is the wifi is very poor but everything else is perfect!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 27 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This house is fantastic. I've stayed in a few large properties and this tops them all. Lovely surrounding, beautifully decorated, clean, great pool area with hot tub, sauna and steam room and loads of areas within the house to relax with friends. Pubs within walking distance and derby is only a short taxi ride away. Tim was super quick to respond to any questions before our stay and nothing was too much trouble. I'd highly recommend and will definitely be back.

“A stunning property in a beautiful location!”
Reviewed 9 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Where to start! We had an AMAZING weekend!
I booked the property for my best friends hen group - we were a mixed age group from 26 - 65, and the facilities were spot on for all of us!
As you pull up on the drive, you can see the quality of the finish to the property. The bedrooms were spacious, the kitchen was well equipped, the living room was a perfect size and the pool was just brilliant!
The biggest credit to the property is the owner, Tim. He could not help me enough when I was emailing questions to him (about suprises we had booked for the hen!) and sent me a pack with local information in, as well as information on the property. Our damage deposit was swiftly returned, and Tim was on hand throughout the weekend to help with any problems we had (getting the wifi to work!)
I would thoroughly recommend the Gatehouse for any large gathering! Unfortunately it rained the whole weekend we were there, so we didn't get to enjoy the gardens, but they did look beautiful.
A must go to property for any big group - the area is brilliant but the property is just perfect!

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 14 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Had a brilliant break with extended family and friends to celebrate a 60th birthday and can't wait to return. The owners of this beautiful property were extremely prompt and helpful with any of our needs. The facilities are excellent, spent all weekend in the pool, hot tub and sauna, and the more energetic used the gym. Everyone loved the warm pool including the two babies we had with us. Played many of the board games that were provided. Some went on the walks that were detailed in the information pack. There are plenty of things to do to occupy all ages. Will definitely book again.

“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 2 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Had an amazing weekend here from 13th to 16th November . Ages ranged from 16 to 86. Lots to do, kids were never out of the pool and hot tub. Beautiful garden although the time of year meant it wasn't at its best and couldn't be used. Great walks from the door, lovely pub a few steps up the road. This place really ticked all the boxes and we'll definitely consider staying again. Just one 'suggestion' which the owners may find useful - the downstairs entrance hall/sitting room seems way too cluttered, too many desks, tables and other occasional pieces of furniture. It felt a bit like sitting in a furniture showroom, hence we didn't use it, it was simply a 'walk through' area to get from a to b. However, this certainly isn't a deal breaker. All in all a top notch place to stay, it ticked the boxes and I'd recommend it to anybody.

“AWESOME”
Reviewed 20 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This place is really amazing!!
We went for a weekend to celebrate a Golden Wedding Anniversary. There were 14 of us, including 4 children, ages 9-13). There was truly something to keep everyone comfortable, happy & occupied all weekend.
We received an extensive and comprehensive information pack from the owners in good time before our visit, so as to be able to plan well. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly, and lived nearby.
The highlight was definitely the pool, spa & hot tub (not to mention the gym) -all keep to high standards with a feel of luxury. The children were occupied and happy the whole time - I have never seen so many floaty toys, rafts, balls in one pool - all provided. The pool was very warm throughout. It was a cold October weekend, but we felt we could have been abroad, lounging by the pool in our swimming costumes!
There were also board games in the lounge.
The house is very spacious - even more spacious than I was expecting from the photos. Plenty of room to all be together, or find somewhere to be on your own. Whole house was warm all weekend. Very pleasant, quiet and relaxing atmosphere.
The rooms are beautiful and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped, and large, with 2 ovens.
Plenty of places to walk and visit, though some of us didn't feel the need to leave the house all weekend, even the dog was happy. There is a children's outdoor play area nearby.
Wifi access wasn't very good, but that didn't bother me. Also, no steps in & out of pool, and floor a bit slippy, so grandma needed some help. But, apart from that, can't think of anything I would change.
The parents said 'Everything about this weekend has had a Wow-factor'! Everyone had a wonderful time and we didn't want to leave. The children want us to go back every year.
We would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you so much to the owners for a fantastic and very memorable weekend.
