St Giles Gatehouse offers two guests a true taste of the high life. Based on the grounds of a grand stately home in Dorset, the ex-gatehouse has been immaculately restored making use of its stunning original features, while ensuring modern aesthetics run throughout. Sleeping up to two guests in luxury, the property is surrounded by manicured gardens and tree-life, which can be viewed from its numerous windows. And its excellent location gives its guests the opportunity to discover the New Forest, the Jurassic Coast and the seaside towns of Bournemouth and Poole, all just a short drive away.
From its huge arched and rounded windows, to its original fireplace complete with cosy wood-burner, St Giles Gatehouse is a romantic retreat that couples will fall in love with. The estate's owner, Lady Shaftesbury, has impeccable taste, and it shows in every inch of the gatehouse. Rich wall colours and panelling, dark wood flooring and expertly chosen furniture all contribute to the lovely feel inside. A modern bathroom with rainfall shower and a fully-equipped kitchen mean nobody needs to sacrifice their home comforts while staying here, while the cosy sofa and sumptuous king-sized bed allow for plenty of lounging opportunities.
As this property is based on the grounds of an old estate, there is a huge amount of land and open space all around, providing the ultimate backdrop for a peaceful getaway. The gardens and grounds can be enjoyed by guests; waking up to the dawn chorus and dewy grass is never bad for the soul. But if you've got itchy feet to discover what's beyond the grand old gates, then there is much to find just a short drive away. The stunning Jurassic Coast provides walking, bathing and sun-worshipping options, while the natural expanse of The New Forest awaits with its roaming wild animals, ancient trees and miles-upon-miles of scenic walking trails.
