This former gatekeeper’s house provides the entrance to the impressive Thornbury Castle, once owned by Henry VIII. The Gatehouse offers all the splendour expected of a Mulberry Cottage with the unexpected twist of feeling that you are stepping back in time with the abundance of character and charm.

As you arrive you’ll be in awe of the remarkable views of St Marys Church set opposite and the long drive framing the vista over the Gloucestershire hills and of course the remarkable Thornbury Castle.

A big heavy Tudor style wooden door greets you as you enter and you are immediately welcomed into this cosy house by a spacious open plan sitting room with dining space framed with an impressive fireplace.

A kitchen with views over your own private garden, two bedrooms and two bathrooms make this the perfect place to stay.

Take a walk into the centre of Thornbury for a stroll around a choice of independent shops, restaurants and pubs or entertain yourselves with the variety of activities offered within the grounds. Play croquet on the lawn, have a go at archery, or learn the basics of falconry. Thornbury Castle is now run as a small hotel. The Gate House offers privacy and seclusion whilst having the facilities of magnificent Thornbury Castle a few steps across the lawns.
