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. * For additional guest reviews dating from the beginning of June, please click on 'The Host' and then 'Reviews'!


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.

If you're undecided, just book this place. Diana is an amazing host, and even the lovely photos don't do it justice. The space itself is comfortable as well as charming, with responsive heating in each room and thoughtful amenities throughout, including local snacks and fresh flowers. We felt so well-cared for, (physically and mentally!) as Diana had great recommendations for dining, exploring, and learning about the area's nature and history. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

Im Gatehouse zu wohnen ist ein besonderes Erlebnis. Es ist klein aber sehr gemütlich und es fehlt an Nichts. Diana hat uns sehr herzlich empfangen und war immer für uns da, wenn wir Fragen hatten oder Tipps brauchten, was in der näheren Umgebung zu unternehmen ist. Schön war auch, dass das Mitbringen unseres Hundes kein Problem dargestellt hat. Im Gegenteil... Die nähere Umgebung lädt zum Spazierengehen ein, abends können alle vor dem wärmenden Kamin sitzen und die Nacht verbringt man, nachdem man die steinerne Wendeltreppe hinaufgestiegen ist, in dem wundervollen Schlafzimmer über dem Tor. Alle Daumen hoch für einen unvergesslichen Aufenthalt dort.

The Gatehouse is a gorgeous place to stay - very unique and full of character! It is the perfect secluded spot where you can get away from it all and enjoy this cosy home in stunning surroundings. The place is just so lovely and I would recommend it to anyone. Diana is a fabulous host who responded quickly and couldn't do enough to help us. The gatehouse is also in a great area with only a short drive to Coldingham and St Abbs which are perfect for walks!

Thanks to Diana for being such an amazing host. The gatehouse was perfect for finishing off our holiday. On arrival we noticed Diana had left us some beer and chocolate as some fancy extras which made Phil a very happy man. When Diana arrived she recommended a few places to eat since it was late at night before we finally arrived. The gatehouse is awesome, and Dawn loved pretending to be a princess walking up the spiral staircase. The castle grounds is good for a walk but the best bit was the walk from Coldingham Bay to Eyemouth and back. This was recommended to us from our host as her favorite place. We also recommend the local bar in Ayton, everyone made us feel very welcome and Jackson (our Alusky pup) enjoyed it too. Cannot recommend this place more, it truly was amazing and can't wait to go back. Thanks again Diana you were fantastic.

What a fantastic stay! The Gatehouse is a great place to stay - unique, cosy, perfect for dogs, just lovely. Diana was a superb host - there when I arrived to show me around and give great tips on walks on the grounds and lots of little added extras at the house. Definitely worth a trip out to Coldingham Bay and coastal walk to St Abbs. I certainly recommend the Gatehouse. Top stay!
