The detail

The Shaftesbury Gatehouse offers two guests a real taste of historic life. Set on the grounds of a 400-year-old stately home in Dorset, this ex-gatehouse has been lovingly restored, making use of its impressive original features, while ensuring modern interior design runs throughout. Sleeping up to two guests in utmost style and luxury, the property is surrounded by manicured gardens, greenery and tree-life, which can be enjoyed from its numerous windows. And its excellent location gives 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, Shaftesbury Gatehouse is a romantic retreat that couples will be delighted by. The estate's owner has exquisite taste, which shows in all the details throughout the property. Regal wall shades with feature panelling, varnished wood flooring and hand-selected furniture all contribute to the majestic feel inside. A modern bathroom with rainfall shower and a fully-equipped kitchen means nobody needs to sacrifice their home comforts while staying here, while the cosy sofa and sumptuous king-sized bed allow for plenty of relaxation and unwinding.

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 who can wake up to the dawn chorus and dewy grass. 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.
