This historic cottage sleeps two plus two. A pub and shops may be found within half a mile.The Gate House is a truly unique holiday home with the look and feel of a medieval castle, complete with canopied bed. It features beams and other period touches alongside such present day luxuries as gas central heating, a fully-equipped kitchen and wi-fi.
The house dates to 1850 and is grade II listed.
