About This Listing
A luxury award winning period property, built in the time of Edward I, (we think it was built approx 1270) - the first historical mention is in 1307 when Bogo de Knovil died and his estate reverted to the Crown. So this Grade II* medieval hideaway boasts seven hundred years of history - and with its towers it feels like you are living in a castle.
The perfect couples retreat, a great base for exploring South Wales! PROPERTY OCCUPIES 2 ADULTS ONLY, PRICE IS FOR THE WHOLE PROPERTY PER NIGHT FOR 2 ADULTS

Extensively refurbished in 2008, the Gatehouse offers a charming loft-style living area within its ancient structure, retaining the beams, thick walls, and stone mullion windows. A deep leather sofa, wood burning stove and delightful sleeping space, all add to a uniquely romantic experience. You can even climb up to the top of the tower, to the viewing platform!
Heating is provided by night storage heaters and the wood burning stove.
The property boasts a modern 'wet room' with shower, a fully fitted kitchen with oven and hob, fridge and small freezer. Downstairs there is a washing machine and tumble dryer if you need (website hidden) with freeview, DVD player, CD player with ipod docking facility.
Please note, this ancient building's charm includes a steep spiral staircase. Access to the gallery bedroom is via a companionway ladder, and requires you to duck underneath a beam. If you have any challenges around mobility please look at the accessibility statement. Note we advise you to bring a couple of smaller bags rather than one very heavy and large case...as the steep spiral staircase has some 30 steps to get to the main living area, and space on the staircase is restricted.

The property is self contained, and has its own entrance. There is parking for two cars (one behind the other). The owners live at the other end of the garden in a sixteenth century Monmouthshire gentry house.

We had a lovely time staying at the gatehouse. Great views from the tower and it was lovely to stay in one night in front of the fire. Would definitely recommend.
Really lovely and unique house. We enjoyed our short stay. Many thanks for accommodating us there.
Had a lovely time, the gatehouse had everything we could ever need, including a very detailed information pack.
We would recommend this place for a romantic getaway as its beautiful and you can enjoy getting cosy in front of the fire.
A visit to Chepstow castle is also a must!
A really lovely stay in this amazing space. A really big "Thank You" to Juliet for taking our last minute booking. We really enjoyed the getaway and could not have been better taken care of. We hope to be back soon!
A wonderful property - friendly and accommodating owners.
The Welsh Gatehouse is nestled into a beautiful woodland setting close to Chepstow and other small villages. It is well appointed and very comfortable. Juliet gave us a warm greeting and introduced us to the major things we needed to beware of as access to the upper level is by a tight spiral staircase. This did not give us any trouble. We found our stay pleasurable, peaceful and a great base for touring the 'Forest of Dean'.
Thanks for your feedback - just so everyone knows..there is a white folder in the gatehouse which has all the instructions for all the equipment in the gatehouse (eg to the washing machine), and this is kept next to the sofa. I'm sorry if you found the directions confusing. We didn't know the mop was broken..we are replacing this today. Thanks for the squidgee!
