“Secluded, romantic, escape - just awesome”
Reviewed May 6, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The accommodation was everything I expected it to be and more. We spent a lovely couple of days there, not really wanting to leave the comfort of the gatehouse. Would definitely recommend, and looking forward to returning.

“A tower, a spiral stone staircase, a log fire - genuinely impressed”
Reviewed March 2, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This was the most delightful holiday we could ever have wished for. The Gatehouse is like a mini castle with its own spiral staircase ascending the stone tower to the warm and cosy welcome of a log fire. The views from the roof of the tower are breathtaking taking in the Bristol channel and the new Severn Bridge to the south and the River Severn and old Severn Bridge to the north. The welcome pack we received was a lovely gesture and very welcome. The kitchen was well thought out just right. The ladder access to the mezzanined bedroom only added to the amazing ambiance of the place. We would recommend this as a wonderful romantic retreat to any couple wishing to get away from it all.

“Fabulous Festive Break”
Reviewed January 8, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We enjoyed a wonderful few days at the highly atmospheric and sympathetically restored Gatehouse in Mathern between Christmas and New Year, which gave us a chance to catch up with family but retain our independence. Beautiful setting with walks from the doorstep which meant we could leave the car behind, roaring wood stove which was fabulous for frosty afternoons, 360 views from the top of the tower and a chance to recharge our batteries. The owners couldn't have been more helpful when booking, they provided loads of information on things to do and see, and best of all, are on hand if required but let you enjoy the peace and quiet if that's your bag. Great farm shop up the road and the friendly Millers Arms in the village means that you really don't have to stray too far for the essentials. Highly recommended.

“A Wonderful Place To Stay”
Reviewed October 2, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

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 in Mathern, Millers Arms, is a short walk and does nice food and beer. A highly recommended stay.

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.

Asode from that evrthing is wonderful.

“Magical - uniquely historic and romantic hideaway”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

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 played in a band at a local festival. It was wonderful to sit in the garden in the evening with the main house at one end and our gatehouse at the other. Absolute magic to climb up to the top of the tower to see the view or the stars. Lots of wonderful walking on the Wye Valley Walk and the Offa's Dyke Walk. Tintern Abbey, Monmouth and Chepstow Castle well worth a visit. There also seemed to be plenty of other places to visit within easy reach. Wonderful.
