Had the most amazing weekend at The Gatehouse!! The place is just super with everything and more than you could possibly need. We were a large group of ladies celebrating a birthday so the space this house offers was just superb. The fact that it had a great pool, sauna, steam room and gym was a massive bonus plus the owner Tim was very helpful, friendly and extremely approachable about anything that we were unsure of . Will definitely go back, it's fantastic !!!
Our family group consisted of a 14 - 84 age range and it is hard to say who enjoyed it more. There is plenty of living space to spread out .... We had a detailed thousand piece puzzle laid out for the whole week in the downstairs sitting area, without disruption. The open plan kitchen/sitting room worked really well and Ocado deliver which made self catering a breeze, especially as the kitchen is so well equipped. Pizza delivery option worked well too!
The swimming pool was warm and the hot tub was hot and both were well maintained. The hot tub was being drained as we left and refilled with fresh water for the next guests.
Previous family group holidays elsewhere have involved complicated rules and regulations, especially about recycling, but Tim's check in was all about making the most of the wonderful house and facilities. Little details such as pool towels, plentiful dishwasher tablets and a well stocked first aid kit show the generous nature of the hosts.
There is so much to do in the area ..... Cycling the tissington trail or carsington water, visiting national trust properties, popping in to the Holly Bush pub, looking round the North mill in Belper, or walks from the door ..... But it was a struggle to leave the gatehouse for long.
The only drawback is that almost every weekend is now booked out till the end of 2016 so we are looking for midweek dates to return next year.
Thanks tim and marie, for a really memorable family holiday.
We had a lovely stay this weekend.
Can't thank Tim enough for his help..
This house is amazing!! In a great location.
Would defiantly recommend!! :))
I booked this house for my 50th Birthday celebrations with my family, given the varying ages of the family from 5-91 yrs old we needed something that would suit everybody. This house was just perfect. Pool, Sauna, Jacuzzi, Gym. Lovely walks along the river and the icing on the cake (for my husband) was a pub just 200 yards down the road, with a real friendly feel to it and great Pork pies and Real Ales. Tim and Marie were so accommodating and such lovely people. We had a singer on the Saturday (party) night and the house is just perfect for large groups gathering together, and large enough for people to have their own space. I would highly recommend this House and will definitely go back.
We stayed at the Gatehouse for my hen weekend. When we first arrived we wandered around the house going 'wow' every time we opened a door. The pool, sauna and hot tub are of course the highlights, but the bedrooms are all really nice, and the kitchen/dining area is the perfect place for large groups to socialise.
Would definitely recommend!
