    Chepstow

    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    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...

    Additional amenities & feature info
    Please note, this ancient building's charm includes a steep spiral staircase. Access to the gallery bedroom is via a companionway ladder, and requires you to duck underneath a beam. If you have any challenges around mobility please look at the accessibility statement.

    Note we advise you to bring a couple of smaller bags rather than one very heavy and large case...as the steep spiral staircase has some 30 steps to get to the main living area, and space on the staircase is restricted.

We had an *amazing* time at the Gatehouse. The photos just don't do it justice. Everything is so beautiful done, from the generous welcome basket to the view from the top of the tower. We loved every aspect of our stay and Juliet was easily reachable by phone for any questions we had. We can't wait to return to the... more

If you want a refuge from the hustle and bustle of daily living then this is the place to stay. A place to while away the hours/days? We just returned from a 4 night stay and to say it was wonderfully relaxing/ nourishing/ rejuvenating is to under estimate its impact. You arrive with excellent directions to a private driveway leading... more
