About Old Gateway Cottage

Explore Exmoor National Park from this cosy farmhouse cottage on Holnicote Estate

Stay in this charming farmhouse style cottage attached to the 15th-century gatehouse on Holnicote Estate. The cottage’s Grade II listed inglenook fireplace has been preserved, while modern furnishings and a log burner have been added for a comfortable stay. There is an enclosed garden at the front, with a BBQ and outdoor seating – perfect for alfresco dining in the summer.  

A fantastic place for walking, horse riding and cycling, Holnicote has 150 miles of footpaths and bridleways to explore. Walk up to Dunkery Beacon, Somerset’s highest point and a spectacular spot for stargazing, or take a leisurely stroll to Bossington and enjoy a picnic on the beach.

Further afield, you could visit Dunster Castle, an ancient castle with dramatic vistas and subtropical gardens. Or you could hop aboard the West Somerset Railway and take a nostalgic ride through the countryside on the heritage steam train.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
