• About The Gate House

    This Grade II listed, mini Gothic castle was built in 1850 and now makes an unusual and unique holiday home. It is believed to have been built as the gate house for the officers’accommodation for the Dover Castle Garrison who were housed in an impressive crescent of homes in Victoria Park. The Gate House stands part way up a hill, close to both Dover Castle and the town itself. The accommodation offers a turret, exposed beams throughout upstairs and down, and other historical features. Dover has plenty to offer visitors including Dover Castle, the wartime tunnels, Roman painted house, easy access for trips to France and walks along the famous white cliffs. Castles at Walmer and Deal; the medieval town of Sandwich; many beaches around the east Kent coastline are all easily accessible and well worth a visit. Shops ½ mile, pub 330 yards.

    Charming and quirky property, cozy (we stayed for 2 nights over Christmas) and within sight of Dover Castle entrance. Great pub 5 mins away (The White Horse). No guarantee of parking on street.

    A very characterful & comfortable place to stay, but it is a shame the road is so nearby & that Dover itself is so neglected.

    A very characterful cottage, and, although quite small from the outside, laid out inside so that it feels more spacious than you'd expect. Well equipped. Only possible downside is finding on-street parking, though we never had to go more than a hundred metres away.

    Very dark. Not very comfortable. Picture gives false impression of surroundings. Parking problematic. Close to Dover Castle, if you are fit and well, otherwise very little in immediate vicinity. Garden very deceptively portrayed, not really suitable for sitting in. Sorry - just not what we anticipated from previous bookings.
