    This is a splendid house in a stunning location. Great for rest and relaxation or for getting friends and family together in a central location.

    Fantastic welcome pack. Lovely setting, with garden down to lake and peacocks in the garden. One of the best cottages we have stayed in. Well worth a return visit.

    Beautifully presented accommodation, luxury furniture and beds. Scenic garden down to the lake, peacocks freely wonder around the garden. Tranquil views over the lake with swans and geese. Virtually on the doorstep of Newstead Abbey which is a great treasure in itself. Toy box and play room for younger children and chess, Wi games.

    We booked the gunn room over Christmas and had 7 people stop here. We had the best Christmas ever. The rooms were spacious and met all are needs. The grounds were incredible and enjoyed a cup of tea at the end of the garden everyday. There was a lovely hamper waiting for us on are arrival. I would recommend this place to stay as it has everything and we will hopefully stop again. We don't have anything negative to say, if you are thinking about booking don't hesitate to stop here.

    The Gun Room is an amazing place to stay, a beautiful house, tastefully decorated with a fabulous kitchen. The owners have thought of everything with every ‘mod-con’ you could wish for. We couldn’t believe how close to the Abbey we were and loved the beautiful woods and lake.

    We loved the Gun Room. Beautiful, spacious property set in beautiful grounds with plenty of space for the kids to run around and a playground for them to explore. We didn’t need to leave the site all weekend. The only thing that would have been helpful that wasn’t provided was a couple of baby gates to stop the toddlers getting down the stairs and making their way to the aga! It just meant we couldn’t let them sleep in the children’s room and had to have them on our floor instead where we could guard them! Apart from that, excellent! Would highly recommend the property. Oh and who doesn’t love 8 peacocks turning up at the kitchen window at breakfast time?

    This is a quality facility. It is as good as any 5 star hotel. The Gun Room is an excellent location for any family retreat. The historical background of the Abbey makes this site very attractive. Every thing about it is outstanding. The facility for a group of eight is very comfortable. One of the outstanding features is the outside area. The yards and gardens, which are well maintained, provide opportunity for being outside. The interior room sizes are more than adequate. The arrival food package was not expected, but offered an unusual welcoming surprise. Shortly after our arrival, Steve our host, was there to see if we had any questions or need any help. I would recommend the Gun Room to everyone.
