  • "Our stay at The Gatehouse was just perfect."

    Everything we needed for a family Christmas, all facilities were excellent, I was surprised and pleased that the owners had put a Christmas tree up, my Grandson loved it. Very warm and welcoming, beautiful furniture and decor throughout the property, you can tell that a lot of thought and effort has gone into this beautiful holiday home. Would love to go back, we didn’t want to leave!

    Thank you so much Andreia for your wonderful feedback. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at The Gatehouse. It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope we will see you again soon! Property Owner

The property

Mansfield 4.6 miles.

Idyllically positioned on the grounds of the Grade II listed Teversal Manor, in the small village of Teversal less than five miles from Mansfield, rests this marvellous stone-built holiday home, The Gatehouse.

Boasting an interior full of character whilst enjoying a rural setting in the countryside of Nottinghamshire, The Gatehouse makes the perfect base for a group celebration to the East Midlands.

Park up in one of three off-road parking spaces before unloading your bags and making your way through the well-kept courtyard positioned at the front of this lovely holiday home to begin your staycation.

Step inside and be welcomed by a snug sitting room, complete with a sumptuous seating area gathered in front of a television, providing the perfect setting to kick off your shoes and unwind following a tiring journey or a day full of adventure.

Continuing through, discover the open-plan kitchen/diner, traditionally decorated with wooden fittings and original exposed stonework, where you can look forward to sharing a bottle of wine with the designated chef at the elegant island, or gathering with your loved ones at the dining table to tuck-in to a hearty meal.

In the summer months, take your dining experience outdoors with a sociable seat on your private patio, enveloped by the lush greenery of the mature grounds; a truly lovely spot to soak in the last of the evening sun as the little ones burn off some steam with a ball game on the lawn or whilst you enjoy a soak in the hot tub.

As the evening draws to a close, retreat indoors and discover the first of four bedrooms tucked away on the ground floor, flooded with light welcomed in through the patio doors and benefiting from access to its own en-suite bathroom.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor you'll discover two bright and airy super-king-size bedrooms, one of which can be a twin on request and each showcasing the properties original character with exposed wooden beams and high vaulted ceilings.
