Beautifully quiet surroundings 4.8/5
We stayed at The Gate House for 3 nights with our Golden Retriever. A charming and cosy place to stay with a sensational backdrop down the valley. In the grounds of a house further up the hill, we were spoilt with peace and quiet and just the odd occasional car going past down the lane a short distance away. You're allocated your own garden which is not enclosed but wasn't a problem for our dog. There is a BBQ outside, chairs, a table and a parasol. Parking for 2 cars at the front of the property. The master bedroom, which was the only one we used was very quirky with beautiful beams and an amazing en-suite through glass doors so that light still came into the room. A fantastic bath with a recharge area for your toothbrush! Very handy! I couldn't find a hair dryer in either room. There is also a downstairs shower room which has a rainfall shower head, so you get a good soaking. The kitchen area was generally well equipped and functional with beautiful views out over the tennis court and valley beyond. I would have appreciated a small serrated knife and a larger serrated bread knife too. The cupboards were all built in and held a good range of crockery and oven items, etc. The lounge and dining area worked well together and we had a few evenings in where we felt very much at home! The local gastro pub 'The Marquis of Granby' had superb food, and we'd recommend it. Overall, a great stay, would thoroughly recommend, unique and unusual, it's a delight to spend time at The Gate House. Many thanks to Toby for sharing his property.

Wonderful stay at The Gate House 5/5
Had a fabulous and very peaceful stay. Beds and linen were very comfortable and has a very well equipped kitchen. The owners were delightful and extremely helpful giving us plenty of ideas of what to do/see. Folkestone Harbour is definitely worth a visit and so is the local village Pub. The only issue we had was with the WiFi and TV (no terrestrial channels), but we weren't there to sit and watch TV and be on the Wifi!!!! Thank you very much for a really wonderful stay.
