The Welsh Gatehouse - historic home

Castle - Entire home/apt · The Gatehouse, Chepstow, Monmouthshire NP16 5, United Kingdom

The Space

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

Inside

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 it.
TV 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.

  • We had a fantastic stay at the Welsh Gatehouse. Juliet was very quick to help us get everything arranged despite us booking our trip just a couple of days before arrival. We would highly recommend a visit to this great property.

  • Didn't manage to make it in the end due to personal emergency and unfortunately had to cancel last minute.

    Juliet and Sam were very communicative all the way through the process and indeed tried to find a replacement at short notice to be able to refund some of my monies.

    They have also offered me a reduced rate at a later stage as partial recompense.
