Our stay at The Gatehouse - May 2019
We had a lovely time and we were delighted with the amenities and the impeccable attention to detail at The Gatehouse. Winchcombe was a pleasure and it was a perfect location for our Cotswolds stop. Sudeley Castle was great!!
Quaint character accommodation
Castle Gatehouse was larger inside than expected and very well equipped with everything you could need incl sandwich making facilities and plenty of toiletries.
The location was great fir visiting Sudeney Castle which is gorgeous and has a fab children's adventure playground.
Only negatives are the four poster bedroom is a bit dated a d there were several creepy crawlies - which freaked out my teenagers. They also tell me they heard mice in bathroom. With the location being quite remote they weren't comfortable being across the courtyard from us abc effectively locked out at night.
Overall the stay was great.
Slight oversight ?
if i was scoring marks out of 5 i would give 4.5. Reason being that the fresh milk left in the fridge ( either by the people who look after the property or last guest ) was 3 days past its sell by date. Should have been moved.
As its says, a Bolthole retreat to be used again
The gatehouse is as impressive inside as out and well positioned for a break away. Our two night stay wasn't enough to dino justice to th area and we would hav welcomed having more time to explore.
Comfortable and Unique
Great private location with easy walk into town and the castle grounds. Comfortable and well stocked. A perfect combination of historic building with modern fixtures. Very comfortable for our dog.
Beautiful, peaceful retreat in the countryside
The Sudeley Castle gatehouse is a great place to stay because of it's history, quiet surroundings and beautiful scenery. The Gatehouse is very well-preserved both on the outside and the inside. It has a historic and antique feeling while still having the modern conveniences. The kitchen is well-equipped and great for 4 guests, no more. The castle itself is magnificent and we were able to visit free of charge because of our stay in the Gatehouse. The Castle has an amazing playground for children of all ages and the grounds provide ample space for running around (both with children and dogs).
Two small details: we visited in early April and the weather was quite chilly - we would have loved more blankets in the larger portion of the unit, where it was very cold. We tried to turn up the heater, but it didn't really work and it was around 16C in the morning inside. That's quite chilly. Perhaps the basic heating temperature could be set to something higher while the weather is still not warm outside...
