  • "We had a super week in Shore Gate House."

    All our needs were catered for and the additional touches of wine, beers, hot cross buns, chocolates and other food essentials on arrival went down a treat, thank you! It’s a lovely house in a super part of the country, a starting point for Hadrian’s Wall. There’s a friendly local Pub and a super Bistro just a minutes walk away. I would highly recommend a stay here.

    Thank you for your amazing review. Both Nicola and I work tirelessly to make sure every aspect of your stay has been delivered to the highest possible standard. So pleased you enjoyed your stay at Shore Gate House Property Owner

  • "Great stay!"

    Lots of character, really well presented and beautiful views. Rooms exceeded our expectations, with comfort and facility. The outdoor lighting could be a little better out the back and the back door steps are a little treacherous, especially pregnant. Downstairs whilst lovely, the living room doesn’t seat 12, more like 7 so that’s a good bit away. Don’t recall seeing it was a guest house, although that’s fine, I think it meant that the rooms were great but the downstairs living wasn’t as big for that number of people. That said, we still managed fine and it worked. People we’re spread out chatting and catching up.

    Thank you for the feedback we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Shore Gate House. Since your visit we have installed a wrought iron handrail on the 17th century steps and have reduced the capacity of our house to increase the amount of space available on the ground floor.
