Like its mansion house neighbour, the 2-bedroom Gate House at Burgundy Chateau is the stuff childhood fantasies are made of with woodland, sand-fringed riverbanks and an island with dinghy to explore - it is an old fashioned adventure storybook in the making!

Thanks to the fact that the Chateau's owners, Nick and Susanna Lyell have eight grand children, aged from 1-10 years old, the Gate House is a very child and baby friendly place to stay with adventure safely contained and easily supervised, so parents can enjoy their glorious surroundings with few worries about giving their little ones the freedom to roam. They've also taken care of stocking the place with some handy baby and kids gear too, see the grey 'Fast Facts' column on this page for full details.

Accommodation Overview:

The 2-bedroom Gate House is a charming, 18th century, stone building nestled up against the elegant gateway to the park of Burgundy House. Its large and airy open-plan living area gives it a surprisingly spacious feel. The interior blends gorgeous original flagstone floors and a romantic log burning stove, with simple contemporary furnishings and mod cons including a washing machine, electric fridge-freezer, cooker, hob, microwave, and an iron and ironing board. The bathroom has a bath tub and shower over. There's a spacious double and a twin bedroom, both with space for a cot.

There is space to park a car beside the house, which is entered by the garden door. Plus a large secluded garden with a barbecue area and a gateway through to some steps down to a wooded path leading to the river where there is a dinghy for guests use. Garden furniture is also provided.
