À propos de ce logement

Come and stay in your very own 'mini-castle'! Log burner in a cosy sitting room and a bedroom located above the arch, accessible via a romantic stone spiral staircase; Ayton with its pub and village shop just a moment's walk away, the Gatehouse is a retreat like no other.

Le logement

Less than four miles from a dramatic coastline which also boasts unspoilt sandy beaches, the gatehouse to Ayton Castle enjoys an ideal location. Decidedly smaller than its grander 'relation' further up the drive, it combines the comfort of a cosy cottage with the beauty of a castle!

The Gatehouse is built out of the same pink sandstone as Ayton Castle (in the archetypal Scots baronial style) and commands a prime position at the entrance to the castle's extensive grounds. There is ample parking space, and guests also have their own private (and enclosed) garden, as well as access to parts of the estate.

Sleeping just two, the interior consists of a sitting room with log burner, a small but well-equipped kitchen, a bathroom and bedroom. For those who are in pursuit of a little magic, access to the bedroom via a fairy tale spiral staircase should more than compensate for the bathroom being on the ground floor!

Recently restored, the Gatehouse is an unusual delight.

Autres remarques

*Bed linen and towels etc. are supplied.
*Due to its stone spiral staircase, the property is not suitable for toddlers or those with reduced mobility.
*The fridge does not have a freezer compartment and there is no shaving socket in the bathroom.
*Underfloor heating in kitchen and bathroom (radiators elsewhere).
*Guests are welcome to smoke in the garden!
*Local pub generally open: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
*We do not include a cleaning fee, and ask that guests leave the property much as they find it.
* Well-behaved dogs (up to 2 if not too large) are welcome, but we do ask that they not go on soft furnishings or upstairs, they have clean paws when in carpeted areas, and that the lawn and flower beds are also left as they are found!
*Care and attention, and appropriate footwear advised in castle grounds.
*Please also note that we are not responsible for the loss of personal belongings or valuables.
* The Gatehouse thanks you in advance for loving and respecting it as you would your own home :).

The gatehouse was easy to find, the setting was beautiful, the accommodation was very comfortable and clean, such a cosy place to stay. Easy distance to visit lots of stunning castles and beaches. A beautiful place all together. Diana was incredibly welcoming and kind with lots of helpful advice about what to do in the area.

From the very moment we booked this stay has been full of communication. Beginning with Diana saying hello introducing herself and saying she looks forward to meeting us, to her providing detailed instructions on how to get there. She gave us such a warm welcome! I loved feeling like we were staying in our own mini Edinburgh castle. This property is perfect! It is relaxing, calming with a beautiful private garden area from where you can watch and listen to a vast aray of wildlife. The home itself just welcomes you and it made my soul just feel (URL HIDDEN) very sad to leave! Diana has thought of everything I feel you may need for your stay (in particular I was delighted to find a potato pealer so I could make corn beef hash for my friend accompanying me). Diana is just an encyclopaedia of knowledge of places you can visit. We visited the local shop a couple of times and found the locals to be very friendly and greeting us with a smile and a hello. On my final day I was missing my Maine coon cat from home and happened to be outside packing up our car and had the pleasure of meeting a very lovely local lady who was walking her stunning puppy dog called Luna (aka floppy ears). I got a lovely cuddle and kiss from Luna, whilst her owner chatted to me as if we had known each other for forever. It was so nice because these days the hustle and bustle of life can stop us from appreciating simple moments, but standing outside the gatehouse with its stunning beauty having someone taking the time to chatter to you and welcome you..,just lovely. I felt like I was at my second home!! I don't travel away from home much, but the beauty of this trip has inspired me to take up photography and I have no doubts I will return to stay again to capture the beauty. If you get the chance to stay here take it! You will not be disappointed!

An incredibly cosy and quiet gatehouse in a lovely little village. A great location to navigate round the borders and Northumberland from. Diana was incredibly warming and a star when it came to hosting! The little pub in the village is a lovely place to relax and meet some of the very friendly locals. We will definitely be returning soon!

What an absolutely magical place. Diana and the extra special touches made it so welcoming and homely. We loved taking Jeffery the jack through the woodlands and saw lots of wild life..deer, rabbit, squirrels and hedgehogs too. A lovely way to get away from all the hustle and bustle of life.

Wir hatten einen Kurztrip nach Schottland geplant und wollten es so authentisch wie möglich erleben. Als wir das Gatehouse zu Gesicht bekamen stellten wir kurz den Motor unseres Mietwagens ab und mussten einfach staunen. Der Anblick war einfach einmalig! Es war wirklich sehr herzlich eingerichtet, sogar ein kleiner Korb mit Köstlichkeiten stand für einen gelungenen Empfang bereit. Alle Räume waren sehr sauber. Der Kontakt verlief reibungslos und auch sonst lädt der kleine Ort und das Anwesen zum Träumen ein. Abends kann man in einen gemütlichen Pub gehen oder aber in der großen Badewanne entspannen. Sehr zu empfehlen, ein Traum!

I work as part of the team at Ayton Castle: a magnificent baronial style structure set amid the undulating landscape of a delightful corner of Scotland.

I speak English, French and conversational Italian, while my partner - who helps out on occasion - also speaks Dutch (as a Dutch man this is hardly surprising!) I have always loved meeting new people, and have a passion for history, architecture...and gardening!
