    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.

This place has the wow factor in spades. Your own little private castle - warm and with everything you would need. Homely atmosphere and very well located for walks - we went to Tintern and separately did Offa's Dyke from Brockweir all the way to the sea. Using the buses from Chepstow means walking time is sensibly reduced. Local pub... more

This was a wonderful building and very confortable accommodation. My wife and I have a very relaxing time and I would recommend this for anyone who has impared flexibiliy. This is due to the beam you have to go under to get to bed. However, I managed without any real difficulty and I have early stage arthritis of both knees.... more

The Welsh Gatehouse is an extraordinarily special place to stay - more than living up to the promise of its web-site. We stayed for a week and it was like stepping back in time into our own magical world. I did some serious walking on a couple of days whilst my my partner did some academic work , plus he... more
