About & Contact

Eastern promise

The Gate House is immensely popular with honeymooners and for celebrating anniversaries, special birthdays - and anything brushed with romance. The 'Eastern promise' strapline is a play on ‘East of England meets the Middle East’ given that many details of the décor take inspiration from the Levant by way of fabrics, prints and paintings, old Arabic & Turkish coffee pots, water kettles, even a Lebanese sheesha pipe (with apple tobacco supplied for those who fancy it), all mixed with comfy sofa and armchairs.

A bespoke wooden staircase leads from the excellently equipped open-plan kitchen/dining/living area to a light and spacious attic bedroom with king-size 4-Poster. The marble-lined bathroom has a modern double-ended bath and drench shower over (with wet room floor).

Take morning coffee overlooking the ponds to the east or imbibe sundowners in the bijou paved courtyard garden surrounded by burgeoning foliage.

Reviews for The Gate House at Belle Grove

Tripadvisor logo

Meet the owner

Jo Jordan

We, Jo & Nick, live on site so are on hand to help as necessary. We are very relaxed about arrivals - just roll up at any time after 3pm or earlier by arrangement - you’ll have detailed directions so simply open the unlocked door and walk in, the keys inside. All will be ready with lights and heating on etc so you’ll have time to settle in / identify any queries before Jo calls round to say hello. Our own backgrounds are mixed to say the least: farmer, designer, builder, lawyer, trans-africa tour operators and author - not to mention becoming accommodation providers on converting redundant barns to holiday lets a few years ago. In 2012, our self-build farmhouse, right on site, was named Overall Winner of the Daily Telegraph Home Building Awards. Read about the creation of Belle Grove including house and barns in Jo's most recent book 'Beyond Dragons: an architectural romance' (more details on website).
