Cannot recommend this place enough, from the useful range of comfortable bedrooms, gorgeous bathrooms, large sitting room with plenty of comfy sofas, huge dining area to the amazing pool, hot tub, steam room and sauna facilities. The garden is delightful and has so many lovely places to sit at various levels allowing sun chasing into the evening. As the cook for a big group of people, I found the kitchen really well equipped, with loads of extras you wouldn't normally expect like deep fat fryer, griddle and huge wine fridge. The open plan design is great for letting the cook be part of party. Only downside; not having the time to be able to stay for a whole week!! Can't wait to come back again.
Lots of lovely places to walk in the vicinity; we had a great walk on the Sunday to Bluebell pub where we had a really nice lunch.
This is the second time we've booked this venue and both times have been a great success.
It's wonderfully grand and spacious. The kitchen is well stocked. The pool is perfect - big enough to swim properly. Hot tub was a massive bonus this year and we loved the steam room.
It's a great venue to walk from. I swam in the river which fishermen assured me was perfectly clean and full of happy healthy salmon.
This is a great venue for families and for groups of friends. Relaxing and grand enough to feel like a treat from start to finish.
The Gatehouse has everything you could want for a birthday weekend away! The hot tub is a lovely feature to have and the pool is big enough to feel you can really swim. Kitchen table allows everyone to sit and eat together and the layout means the cook doesn't feel left out! Only downside is the wifi is very poor but everything else is perfect!
This house is fantastic. I've stayed in a few large properties and this tops them all. Lovely surrounding, beautifully decorated, clean, great pool area with hot tub, sauna and steam room and loads of areas within the house to relax with friends. Pubs within walking distance and derby is only a short taxi ride away. Tim was super quick to respond to any questions before our stay and nothing was too much trouble. I'd highly recommend and will definitely be back.
Where to start! We had an AMAZING weekend!
I booked the property for my best friends hen group - we were a mixed age group from 26 - 65, and the facilities were spot on for all of us!
As you pull up on the drive, you can see the quality of the finish to the property. The bedrooms were spacious, the kitchen was well equipped, the living room was a perfect size and the pool was just brilliant!
The biggest credit to the property is the owner, Tim. He could not help me enough when I was emailing questions to him (about suprises we had booked for the hen!) and sent me a pack with local information in, as well as information on the property. Our damage deposit was swiftly returned, and Tim was on hand throughout the weekend to help with any problems we had (getting the wifi to work!)
I would thoroughly recommend the Gatehouse for any large gathering! Unfortunately it rained the whole weekend we were there, so we didn't get to enjoy the gardens, but they did look beautiful.
A must go to property for any big group - the area is brilliant but the property is just perfect!
