The Welsh Gatehouse (Book for more nights and the price will decrease)

Tower -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Chepstow, Monmouthshire, Southern Wales, Wales
A luxury award winning period property, built in the time of Edward I, (we think it was built approx 1270). This Grade II* medieval hideaway boasts seven hundred years of history - and with its towers it feels like you are living in a fairy tale castle.

Stay from 1 night to 2 weeks. It is cheaper the longer you stay. Please contact us for further information on availability and prices.

Extensively refurbished in 2008, the Gatehouse offers a charming loft-style living area within its ancient structure, retaining the beams, thick walls, and stone mullion windows. A deep leather sofa, wood burning stove and delightful sleeping space, all add to a uniquely romantic experience. You can even climb up to the top of the tower, to the viewing platform!

Heating is provided by night storage heaters and the wood burning stove.
