“WOW!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

This really was living in a castle....extraordinary. We had the whole place to ourselves, our own front door...it was really quiet, private, cosy and warm. The log fire was fantastic, the wet room works well, the kitchen was well equipped...we had an amazing time

“Exceed all our expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Everything about the gatehouse met and exceeded our expectations, from the detailed directions supplied, to the welcome basket of welsh cakes and wine, to the tasteful and thoughtful furnishings, through to the tranquility of the garden. William and Juliet were attentive, and offered us the chance to stay for much of our checkout day too, since no-one else was coming in. The visitor's book reveals that Dr Rowan Williams (archbishop of Canterbury) has also been a saitisfied guest! We really can't speak highly enough of it.

“Excellent attention to detail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

My partner and I stayed at the Welsh Gatehouse for two nights between Christmas and New Year. What a treat! It was perfect. From the outside that looks all old world like to the immaculate modern inside. It was cosy, and all the little things were thought of.

We spent hours sitting in front of the fire reading books with the cold and wet weather outside. How better to spend the Christmas break away from all the madness of family visits and January sales shopping!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Really lovely. Having seen the photos and watched the video I had expected it to be beautiful but it was just enchanting. I can't think of any other way to describe it than that.
The small touches were great - the log fire was lit as we arrived and the owners had already kindly provided some basics. We only stayed one night but I would go back in a heartbeat and hope to whenever we get the chance.

“This is the most magical romantic getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013 for a stay in October 2012

The Gatehouse was an amazing place to stay. Everything we needed was there. It was very central to many towns. We would go back in a heartbeat.

“Return trip did not disappoint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Very, very rarely do we ever make a return trip, as we are usually disappointed. This place has been an exception to our 'rule', and we were far from disappointed. It remains magical, and this time we went upto the 'turret' section of the building, and had the most amazing views, and stood watching a squirrel playfully jumping in the tree below us.

We had a perfect time, the fire keeping the place toasty warm; the scones, jam and clotted cream tea will be forever remembered, as will the amazing drive up the Wye Valley with the trees in every hue of brown, yellow, red and orange.

All in all, the perfect weekend get away from London.

“A very special place, idiosyncratic and extremely comfortable.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

It's a unique place in a wonderful setting, almost everything is provided for you and the standard of all the furnishings and fittings is very high. We stayed for our honeymoon and it was exactly what we wanted after the stress of the wedding, totally relaxing.
