• 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.
    Ground floor: Living room with double sofa bed. Dining room. Kitchen. Narrow stairs to first floor: 1 double (four poster canopy) bedroom. Bathroom with toilet. Beams throughout.
    Gas CH, elec, bed linen and towels inc. Freeview TV. DVD. M/wave. W/machine. D/washer. Wi-fi. Enclosed garden. On road parking. No smoking.

    We didn't even stay one night at the gate house and lost all our money as it was not as advertised then when we phoned the manager/owner she couldn't be any less helpful would never reccomend this place to anyone especially if you have a small dog! Do not go there.

    Excellent holiday and great location for exploring Kent. The gate house itself is charming and well equipped for your self catering needs. There are some lovely places in Kent to visit such as Deal,Rye,Sandwich and Hythe all very historical.

    The Gate House was a lovely unusual cottage. Unfortunately there was very limited parking nearby. The cottage was halfway up a very steep hill from the town. So not good for people who have trouble walking. The castle was close by but again a steep walk.
