About The Gate House

The Gate House, a spacious architectural gem has been sympathetically restored and now offers stylish interiors and wonderful grounds. High ceilings, cosy nooks, sash windows and a wonderful turned wooden staircase, blends seamlessly the owners passion and keen eye for interior design.
Being tucked away at the outskirts of historic Wimborne Minster gives this wonderful property a rural feeling but is within a short stroll of the vibrant town square and its bars and restaurants.

The property offers 7 beautiful bedrooms sleeping 14 guests in style and comfort, a grand sitting room, large kitchen with beautiful AGA with separate breakfast room and a formal dining room offers the perfect space to come together over dinner and a drink or two! A newly refurbished entertainment room with underfloor heating, houses a large 75" flat screen TV connected to a Netflix account with a complimentary £20 to spend on Apple movies! You then step outside through bi-fold doors onto a terrace which has a hot tub.

Within 30 minutes drive you will find Sandbanks peninsular, with miles of unspoilt sandy beaches, and the chance to enjoy a wide variety of water based activities. From here take the iconic chain ferry to Swanage, a glorious Victorian seaside town. If you are looking for culture, Kingston Lacy, a National Trust house and gardens are well worth a visit or take in a show or concert at the 'Art Deco' Tivoli theatre a 5 minute walk away.
