Very well equipped house, everything is very convenient....

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...
