Golden Gates Lodge
GOLDEN GATES LODGE
Located peacefully in the middle of Eastnor Castle Deer Park and away from any public roads, Golden Gates Lodge provides single level accommodation for up to 4 guests and comprises two listed buildings, separated by a gold and black wrought iron gate.
Many years ago, carriages used to come down a private road from the British Camp on the Malvern Hills, through Golden Gates, to the Castle gates in the village.
Golden Gates Lodge lies close to the footpath which crosses the Park and takes walkers up onto the ridge of the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Worcestershire Way.
The Ridgeway Wood, just behind the Lodge, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and visitors can follow the drive up to the gates at the top of the Ridgeway or join another footpath that crosses it and leads up to Clutters Cave, also on the Hills.
Complimentary entry to Eastnor Castle during public opening times is available to all Golden Gates Lodge guests.
The medieval town of Ledbury, 4 miles away, is well worth a visit and boasts a good selection of pubs, food and craft shops. Further afield and within a 30 minute drive are Tewkesbury Abbey, Hereford and Gloucester Cathedrals, Cheltenham, the Cotswolds and Forest of Dean.
GOLDEN GATES LODGE
The two single storey gate lodges have been refurbished and decorated to provide high quality self catering holiday accommodation in a unique setting. The larger of the two lodges has a sitting room, with Freeview TV/DVD & WI-FI, and is equipped with a wood burning stove, with unlimited supply of wood. The kitchen, with dining table for 4 people, is fully equipped with electric oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer, washing machine/dryer, Nespresso machine and microwave. A kitchen door provides a side entrance. The double bedroom has a super king ‘zip n link’ with an adjoining bathroom with separate shower cubicle.
The smaller lodge on the other side of the gates, has been converted into a very cosy double bedroom, with separate toilet, and shower room with wash basin. Close to the smaller lodge, but at a lower level and accessed down some stone steps, is the terrace with tables and chairs with magnificent views of the lakes and parkland.
