About this property

Complimentary Welcome Hamper

A complimentary welcome hamper will be awaiting you on your arrival containing milk, tea, fresh coffee, bread, butter, eggs, juice, wine and cheese, along with other essential items to prepare a light snack or breakfast. There may be some regional variations.

Expect the unexpected at The Gate Lodges, located a short drive from Sibton Park Estate. These Grade II listed lodges, designed by the celebrated neoclassical architect James Wyatt, have been ingeniously extended and marry historical architecture with modern comforts.

The interiors are chic and clean, with luxurious finishing touches to reflect the character of the property. Entering via the west lodge, itself a cosy reading ‘snug’, guests descend the main staircase to find a well-appointed kitchen complete with all modern conveniences. The cavernous drawing room beyond complements Wyatt’s style perfectly with curved walls and high ceilings with floor-to-ceiling French windows opening to a private sun terrace. The light-filled master bedroom features full height French windows which lead out to another private terrace. The property features a luxurious en-suite bathroom complete with an indulgent bath tub and even its own mosaic tiled steam room.

      This is a unique property, even by Rural Retreats standards which must have cost a fortune to build and to furnish in its semi-luxurious style. On arrival it certainly has the Wow factor. Unfortunately it falls down, in what I would consider, and you may not, the lack of information. In all other Rural Retreats cottages where I have stayed, and there have been many, there has always been provided a 'directory' giving information on such things as - how to use the equipment, details of local amenities including doctors etc., (comforting to know at my age), restaurants, walks etc.. Non of this is provided at the Gate Lodges. On telephoning the housekeeper to obtain the WiFi password (why on earth is this not available at the property), I asked her where I could find the directory and was told in a rather brusque way that they did not do that sort of thing. Thus later when I was unable to work the cooker (no instructions), and combined with a disgusting smell from the kitchen sink, apart from boiling a kettle I was forced to eat all my meals out of the house. Similarly the top of the range coffee machine was useless (no instructions) and there is no microwave.Despite the high quality fittings throughout, the property feels a little soulless, possibly because it is so cold, particularly at night. Again it was impossible to adjust the heating (no instructions) and I found myself having to watch television in my overcoat. It would also have been nice to have had information on walking on the surrounding estate or the Sibston estate. Was this allowed or not? Mention was made in the visitors book by previous guests of visits to a swimming pool and boating on a lake - but where were these places? Again no information.Now I am sure that you will say that I should have rung the housekeeper for this information, but after my first icy reception, I did not feel that I wanted to 'bother' her further, and in any case should this really be necessary.

      It was as though we were the first people to stay there . All clean . All tidy. Comfy sofa comfy bed . Fully equipped kitchen etc etc . Very very good

      Fantastic place. The only fault was that it was a bit further from the main estate than we had anticipated. However, that was reflected in the price.
