We stayed with Jonny and Rich last week - I say Jonny and Rich rather than 'we stayed at the Gate' because I truly felt that I was staying in their home rather than at their hotel! The Gate is a special place, set in beautiful grounds, with gorgeous views, each room is uniquely decorated with quirky touches such as outside baths and lovely furnishings. Nothing is too much trouble for Rich, Jonny and their new recruit, Helen - homemade scones, fresh coffee, advice on where to go or where to eat, whatever you need, they do their best to deliver. We were sad to leave but will definitely be back!

Simply the best! We went for a family wedding in the vicinity were treated like VIP’s , by the hosts, Rich and Jonny and Helen, from the moment we walked in . Nothing was too much trouble . A variety of suites / rooms and each one was spotless . Some had funky outside baths( in addition to the usual indoor shower!) for an alfresco experience under the stars We can’t wait to return

We have just returned from a night in the Shepherds hut at the gate, we were fortunate to be gifted a night here and we had such a relaxing time. It was so nice to get back to nature and the bath tub outside and all the added touches and attention to detail made it extra special. We would definitely recommend staying in the hut. We were lucky with the weather, which helped to .

We were looking for a venue to hold my mother's wake, The Gate was a superb choice. Nothing was too much trouble for Rich and Jonny. They were so helpful and accommodating, and also recommended a caterer, who was fantastic. They were both there during the event making sure that everything ran smoothly and to plan. The Gate is such an amazing venue and location, appropriate for so many different types of occasions, I would wholly recommend it.

We came down to spend time here across NYE last year. The place is amazing! Jonny and Rich (owners) are so helpful, very chilled out and very accommodating. Highly recommend. So good, we are coming back!

Beautiful hotel with really lovely bar area. Owners are really lovely and easy to deal with. Rooms are spotless. Bath on balcony is amazing! Grounds are well tended. Not too expensive for a hotel drink. A little out of the way so you either need to like walking or have transport for exploring.

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at The Gate. The whole place is done up to such a high and exacting standard and not a single detail has been missed or not thought of. We were well taken care of & can't recommend it highly enough! Also great walks nearby to the coast too and the hosts were so helpful with recommendations. Can't wait to return!

I was beyond fortunate to have this beautiful hotel as my surprise location for my Hen Do. It completely blew me away! No photos can really do it justice: the interior design, the atmosphere and the constant aroma of diffusers and candles. After the hen, I wanted to bring a bit of my stunning weekend with all of my best friends to the wedding and had diffusers of the matching scent from The Gate at my wedding. So now whenever I smell White Company White Mint, I think of my stunning hen & wedding. The owners were beyond kind and welcoming, and honestly can't thank them enough for such a perfect weekend. They recommended the best local places to go, and we went on a great walk along the beach and coast that we wouldn't have known about without them. Definitely coming back, and will forever recommend to everyone.

Such a lovely place to stay! The rooms were well equipped and had lots of little extras to make us feel at home. Gorgeous views and in walking distance to the beach, which was a little piece of heaven and a great coffee / ice cream pit stop! Hosts were so helpful with where to eat, visit and just making sure we enjoyed every part of our trip. Will definitely be returning!

Can’t recommend enough to stay here, it’s not very often that everything is genuinely amazing. Came with friends and we had the best time with the best hosts, thank you so much. We walked down to Polperro, really easy from The Gate and at night cosied around the fire in the bar. 5 stars for sure.
