The Gate House is set in the grounds of The Stable House built in 1888; it has been fully renovated and redecorated and opened just in time for the May 2021 half term; there are two large double bedrooms with ensuite shower rooms, a light and airy well equipped kitchen, with separate dining and sitting rooms, with sliding doors out onto a large private garden with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. This was previously listed as a 4 bed house before renovations;

Le logement
The Gate House was built in the 1970s for the use of the family who worked for The Stable House property and grounds; it was formerly known as The Stable House Lodge, and was previously rented as a 4 bed house.

We started renovation work in March 2021 and finished by the end of May for half term after a lot of hard work and help from family and friends! The windows have been replaced to make the most of the beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and the outside has new cladding and paintwork to bring it in line with The Stable Studios and The Stable Barn.

Upstairs there are two spacious double bedrooms with their own ensuite shower-rooms, each having large windows to make the most of the views of the countryside and trees; The main bedroom also has a cosy corner to sit and read in under the eaves.

Downstairs the sliding doors from the dining area, open out onto the garden and there are new sliding windows all around to make the most of the views; the dividing walls have been removed as far as is structurally possible to create a lovely large light and open space for sitting on one side, dining on another and a well equipped kitchen on the other.

We leave a welcome breakfast pack of some local farm fresh eggs, cereal, milk, coffee and tea.

The Gate House has its own private garden and there is access to the extensive grounds of The Stable House with woodland and a partly restored Victorian Kitchen Garden to explore. You can look over the Orchard or into the field beyond to see the pony, donkey, sheep or cattle (dependent on the time of year); or if you enjoy bird watching, bring your binoculars to enjoy spotting the resident buzzards and red kites, not forgetting the many species of garden and woodland smaller birds.

From the grounds it is possible to walk across the fields to join the public footpath network if you want to venture further afield.

What was a downstairs bedroom has been converted into the Orchard Studio. This has its own private access and is well sound-insulated from the Gate House; it has a double bed room with shower ensuite and a separate living room with kitchen and dining facilities and a sliding door out onto its own private patio. This can be booked separately and will not in any way impinge on the privacy of the Gate House.

We run a Coffee Club out of The Stable Barn, in the old stableyard, serving Barista coffee (including decaf) and various teas, and home made cakes and biscuits (with a gluten free option!). We’re open to guests and friends. We ask for a donation to cover the cost of the coffee etc plus a bit extra which goes to help support the work of the Aesso Orphanage in Burkina Faso, West Africa. Ask us about our visits there. Check with us when this is open.

The Stable House Retreat property is known as a good place to retreat, rest, relax and be restored.

We have other accommodation available on The Stable House property, if you want to meet up with other families and friends. These are listed separately. We would ask no parties please and please be considerate to other residents

The Gate House is situated near to our family home so we do ask that guests are respectful of our space and look after the house and respect the outside spaces marked Private.

Où se situe le logement

Angleterre, Royaume-Uni

We share our driveway with the Kilworth House Hotel which is a beautifully renovated 1880 house, with its own open-air theatre (May-September) in the grounds as well as a fishing lake.

The Gate House has its own garden and you are able to also enjoy the very large garden of The Stable House - there are a few areas marked Private which we ask you to respect. For a gentle stroll there is 20 acres of paddocks and woodland (maps supplied) to explore; or if you would like to venture a bit further, we are only a field away from the Public Footpath network (the Ordnance Survey Map App is a useful tool)

Local attractions include the lovely market town of Market Harborough, Foxton Locks, Coton Gardens (a must at Bluebell time) and then a little further afield, Warwick Castle, Stratford-on-Avon, Leamington Spa to mention just a few.

If its shopping you're after Highcross in Leicester (30 minutes drive) has all the usual retailers or you can venture to the Bullring at Birmingham which also has some great vintage shops (or so our daughters tell us!)

Very early 60s! happily married for 34 years (wow!) to Neil (we host together), mother of 4 (all grown and flown now), love living in the countryside but also enjoy trips to the city for the theatre and friends. Lived in Sydney for 4 years and loved it there too (who wouldn't!). Our globetrotting children told us "you must try Airbnb" so here we are! Our Christian faith is important to us and we try to live a life that shows what we believe. We love people and family and visitors.
