We stayed in the house for my sister's hen party as a group of 18. The house is well situated and has plenty of space. The leisure facilities are a big bonus although be very careful round the pool area as the floor when wet is extremely slippy.
Communication with Tim was easy and they were on hand for any issues during the weekend
Had the most amazing stay at the Gate House. The pictures do not do the place justice! There is everything you could possibly want!Made full use of the facilities with Aqua Zumba in the pool and a spa day using the sauna and jacuzzi! Lovely communal kitchen space! Owner and family very helpful! Easy proximity to Derby for meal out and drinks! My Sister thoroughly enjoyed ! Hope we have an excuse to come back!
This house is absolutely beautiful, with enough room to sleep all our 18 guests for my sisters hen party. We had a pool party the first night and then on the second night made the most of the sauna and hot tub! If you are looking for a big house to spend time with your loved ones, playing games, eating, dancing and just generally have a fabulous time then this is perfect :)
The owner Tim was very helpful with any queries we had during our stay, I even left my shoes there and he posted them back to me.
Would without a doubt recommend you stay here!
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.
