It’s all very well staying in an enormous stately home but sometimes you just want a taste of the good life without all the space and grandeur. If you’re looking for something a little less imposing how about a gatehouse? Staying in a gatehouse offers you the opportunity to experience the history and character of a chateau or an estate without having to stay in an enormous property which you have neither the finances nor the numbers to fill. And more often than not you’ll get the best of both worlds – private accommodation with access to top quality grounds and facilities.
Gatehouses are perfect holiday properties for smaller groups because they rarely have more than a bedroom or two. Couples can enjoy a romantic hideaway, young families can take time out and countryside lovers and history buffs can immerse themselves in the things they love in a manageable laid back way.
