Ths is the 4th year we have rented a home in England for approximately one month. All rentals have been more than acceptable. This rental was exceptional. The house was warm and the hot water always hot. The internet always worked. The supplies in the kitchen were not second-hand or leftovers. They were new and good. They even provided a garlic press! The instant hot water and krushr were so nice to have we are considering them for our own home. Mandy and Jo were pleasant, helpful and reachable when needed but otherwise not intrusive at all. Having the Burghley estate outside our back door so you can take long walks any time was an unexpected plus. Absolutely perfect. We have no complaints at all!
This cottage surpassed all of our expectations! The whole place was absolutely immaculate and comfortably slept 5 of us. I've never been somewhere quite like this and it is clear it has been lovingly restored, with top of the range toiletries and bedding, antiques everywhere and a kitchen straight out of an interiors magazine. Mandy had thought of all the little touches, leaving us snacks and even some sherry to enjoy! Stamford itself is a lovely town, with great dining options and shops to mooch around in. Burghley Park is within a 5-10 minute walk too. Overall, I would highly recommend Park Gate for a weekend away to get away from it all! It's cosy, homely and very special. I would love to go back!
We've just returned from this delightful property. I couldn't fault anything regarding it or the beautiful town it's situated in. The cottage was filled with old world charm but decorated to a very high standard with every modern amenity including a hot water tap! It also has Burghley Estate on the doorstep for country walking. A lovely break in an area I hadn't previously explored.
Beautifully decorated, with fantastic furniture: I love the antique design. Mandy was a lovely hostess. The beds are extremely comfortable: delightful linen. The kitchen is communal and warm in colour, and very well-fitted. Will return again!
We stayed at Park Gate in April 2016 to celebrate my birthday and I can honestly say this is the best rental property I have ever stayed in-I have stayed in a lot and must admit I have pretty high standards! The property has been finished to an incredibly high standard and the owners have thought of everything- the kitchen is fully equipped (and more!) and even the quality of the linen, bathroom toiletries and welcome package exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to Mandy for making my birthday weekend so wonderful- this property really is a little bit of luxury in the centre of Stamford. We will be back!
