Description from owner


The Gatehouse is a gorgeous, amazing, amazing (did I mention amazing?) love-nest for two. Open plan with oodles of space, a grand piano, a corrugated tin wall, lots of fascinating paintings, reclaimed Georgian staircase, books galore and woodburning stove with (imagine!) winter moose scenes. It is quirky, original and set in the stunning landscape of the Eden Valley. For families, we can accommodate a couple of children. Dogs welcome.

Getting around

For cyclists, this area is a dream. Bicycles can be stored in the garage if you want to bring them. At a pinch, I can lend you ours. Walkers too can have a dreamy time here as the lanes are quiet and the views far-reaching. You will need a car however, unless you are exceptionally resourceful.

Interaction with guest

I live next door to the Gatehouse and am always happy to give advice or help. I do not however like to be intrusive as the property is self-catering. My mobile number is available in the instructions so if there are any emergencies, you can always get hold of me.
