The house has old fashioned charm and grandeur but with all the mod cons you need. The welcome from the owners was lovely and warm. The rooms are large and wonderful, the location is beautiful with fabulous views. The bedding was soft cotton and ample towels were provided. There were lovely touches like individual soaps, coffee and tea and a home baked cake. The garden was lovely for our 3 year old granddaughter to play in. Great facilities for our Jack Russell too. There is plenty of parking space. It was the perfect place for a family gathering for a special birthday celebration. We absolutely loved it!
Mrs Bull, Vale of Glamorgan
,A perfect venue for a family get-together, very thoughtfully equipped, including for children. It was a delightful location with lovely walks. By pure coincidence, another branch of the family stayed at Whitegate a couple of months earlier, they were equally enthusiastic about the property!
Mrs Durrant, Somerset
,A beautiful spacious family house with great character and oozing history, ideal for a large family reunion or meeting up with a group of friends. Equipped to a standard well beyond most rentals. In a lovely elevated location overlooking the Wye Valley. Plenty to amuse children; our grand-daughter loved the Wendy house in the garden. Highly recommended.
Mr Heaton, BRISTOL
,This was a beautifully furnished house throughout, well equipped for a large party with lots of modern extras for home entertainment. It is in a great location with lots of interesting places nearby to visit. (don't know what the Tourist Board Star Grade was but am sure this property exceeded the criteria) All our party loved it!
,The house was just perfect for our weekend and I would thoroughly recommend.
,Lovely setting. Good size for two families getting together for an early Christmas. A freshly cut Christmas tree was thoughtfully provided by the owner as well as a welcoming chocolate cake.
Mr Harper, Surrey
,It is a wonderful large property giving everyone a feeling of space. It is peaceful and homely yet beautiful and grand.
,I am not sure what rating this house is, but unless it's 5 Star it is not rated high enough! I very much enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and beautiful house, and it was so so so clean. Far exceeded my expectations. It was hard to drag myself away!
Mr Bartlett, Wiltshire
,A brilliant reunion weekend with school friends. An ideal property for family or friends to get together. The garden is fantastic, with wonderful views. The house is spacious, nice and welcoming with everything that could be needed.
,We were a party of 10 (5 couples) and had the perfect weekend for my husband's 50th birthday. The house is just beautiful, 5 spacious double bedrooms and everyone found their beds very comfortable. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would like to make it an annual event!
,We had a fantastic holiday. The house was spotless and we had everything we needed (in fact more than enough!) The house was elegant and comfortable. The size of the cooker was great for four or five people working together. The views were stunning. We would all recommend this house to our friends.
Miss Harris, Norfolk
,The house was well equipped, clean, comfortable and spacious. The garden was delightful and had fantastic views.
Mrs Macmillan, Warwickshire
,A lovely house with beautiful views and surrounding area. Feels like home from home!
Mr Wareham, Essex
,A wonderful property for a big family weekend, the house had everything needed for young grandchildren as well as all the adults. The house was beautifully furnished and equipped without being too precious, so it was possible to let the children enjoy themselves without being constantly nagged.
Mr Ferguson, Staffordshire
,A beautiful house with gorgeous views.
Mrs Tannian, Hertfordshire
,A large spacious house with everything you needed for a comfortable and relaxing break; excellent holiday.
,Whitegate was wonderful, we are looking at returning as a family!
Miss Lynch, Cornwall
,I celebrated my 60th Birthday here with 9 members of my family and friends visited throughout the week end. We will re-book this and would like to stay longer for the next visit, the views are breathtaking and if you have children they are well catered for with ample toys both inside and outside the house. Many thanks for allowing us the pleasure of using your home must go to the owner, a lovely lady.
Mrs Groves, Select a county
,Everything that we needed for the 11 guests was there, actually we all had more than we needed. The property is beautifully situated with wonderful views out of the bedroom windows. All the rooms are well appointed and tastefully furnished with a great mix of old fashioned style and modern practicality. There is more than enough cutlery, crockery and cookware. The beds were all good and the bathrooms well equipped. The garden was beautiful and very well kept. In short, we would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to accommodate a larger group of guests.
,The house was just perfect for our big family to get together. It is very comfortable, the bedrooms were exceptional and it was brilliant having a very large dining table.
Mrs Davey, Argyll and Bute
