Come and stay in your very own 'mini-castle'! Log burner in a cosy sitting room and a bedroom located above the arch, accessible via a romantic stone spiral staircase; Ayton with its pub and village shop just a moment's walk away, the Gatehouse is a retreat like no other.

Less than four miles from a dramatic coastline which also boasts unspoilt sandy beaches, the gatehouse to Ayton Castle enjoys an ideal location. Decidedly smaller than its grander 'relation' further up the drive, it combines the comfort of a cosy cottage with the beauty of a castle!

The Gatehouse is built out of the same pink sandstone as Ayton Castle (in the archetypal Scots baronial style) and commands a prime position at the entrance to the castle's extensive grounds. There is ample parking space, and guests also have their own private (and enclosed) garden, as well as access to parts of the estate.

Sleeping just two, the interior consists of a sitting room with log burner, a small but well-equipped kitchen, a bathroom and bedroom. For those who are in pursuit of a little magic, access to the bedroom via a fairy tale spiral staircase should more than compensate for the bathroom being on the ground floor!

Recently restored, the Gatehouse is an unusual delight.

Bus stop only a few steps away. Close to A1. Approximately an hour from Edinburgh. Berwick-upon-Tweed - with regular trains to Edinburgh and Newcastle - about 8 miles.

*Bed linen and towels etc. are supplied.
*Due to its stone spiral staircase, the property is not suitable for toddlers or those with reduced mobility.
*The fridge does not have a freezer compartment and there is no shaving socket in the bathroom.
*Underfloor heating in kitchen and bathroom (radiators elsewhere).
*Guests are welcome to smoke in the garden!
*Local pub generally open: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
*We do not include a cleaning fee, and ask that guests leave the property much as they find it.
* Well-behaved dogs (up to 2 if not too large) are welcome, but we do ask that they not go on soft furnishings or upstairs, they have clean paws when in carpeted areas, and that the lawn and flower beds are also left as they are found!
*Care and attention, and appropriate footwear advised in castle grounds.
*Please also note that we are not responsible for the loss of personal belongings or valuables.
* The Gatehouse thanks you in advance for loving and respecting it as you would your own home :).

Diana was an excellent host and gave us tons of ideas for things to do. The place was lovely and exactly what we wanted for a quiet few days away. Would thoroughly recommend!

Absolutely gorgeous fairytail property. Lovely layout and décor and all very clean with a nice welcome hamper. We enjoyed lovely walks, curling up in front of the fire and soaking up the surroundings. We walked to the local pub which we would really recommend as they are super friendly and had yummy pies. Would really recommend a trip to the Gate house at Ayton. Thanks so much for a lovely time. Gemma

Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at The Gatehouse. Extremely cosy and well equipped. The castle grounds were great fun to explore with the dogs - plenty of wildlife and lovely spring flowers. Diana was very helpful and her recommendation of Cullen skink at St Abbs was well worth it. Could easily have spent much longer here.........may have to come back!

Where to start? What an amazing, wonderful, beautiful, romantic and special place to stay! This mini-castle is absolutely perfect in every way. Spotlessly clean, everything you need and lots to hand 'just in case'. You really feel as though you have come to stay somewhere very special. The home itself is absolutely beautiful, the kitchen and bathroom are modern, clean and have everything you need. The living room is super cozy especially with the fire roaring away and the bedroom super romantic. Opening the shutters in the morning and watching deer run up the drive was a truly perfect experience. Diana's attention to detail made my parter, my pup and I feel absolutely spoiled. Fresh flowers, treats left in the kitchen and her lovely greeting upon arrival was so lovely. The gate house is perfectly located to explore the many castles and beaches nearby, and closer to home the castle grounds are huge and full of places to explore. We found a secret walled garden one day and a spring hidden in the forest the next. We also sampled the local towns Indian and Chinese food which was good and worth the short drive. I can't recommend this wonderful place more highly and look forward to coming back very soon! Thank you Diana for such a wonderful break!

Apart from the obvious of staying in such a fabulous building, the garden was lovely and you can also explore much of the castle grounds. Woodlands and the banks of Eye Water, we found the natural spring. All in all a very back to nature, nourishing weekend.

We couldn't have asked for a more magical stay - our own castle for the weekend! Everything was perfect & we didn't want for anything. Diana was such an incredible host, giving us her local knowledge & ensuring we had everything we needed. Such a beautiful area & such a unique place to stay - we won't forget this place any time soon :)

I work as part of the team at Ayton Castle: a magnificent baronial style structure set amid the undulating landscape of a delightful corner of Scotland.

I speak English, French and conversational Italian, while my partner - who helps out on occasion - also speaks Dutch (as a Dutch man this is hardly surprising!) I have always loved meeting new people, and have a passion for history, architecture...and gardening!
