This was the second time we’ve been to the Gatehouse, but we were disappointed this time. It’s supposed to cater for four people but only having three bowls may seem like a trivial matter, but not at breakfast.
There cleaning also left a lot to be desired as there were a considerable amount of spiders webs, not at high level, but at eye level in the kitchen, bedrooms etc. The webs were hopefully catching the moths that appeared continuously within the main bedroom, with us having to kill them every night - although we also found plenty of them over our clothes. It just feels like standards have dropped and I think on another review, the other properties on site may be the same.

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. We are obviously sorry that some inventory items had gone astray and there were areas of cleanliness that you felt needed a little more attention. We would have loved the chance to look into this during your stay but we've now shared the information with the owner so these areas can be addressed. Sarah, Customer Support

Mrs Van Raalte January 2022
We had a wonderful stay in amazing accommodation. The hot tub was a great bonus to have during a winter stay. Everything about The Gatehouse was exceptional. Many thanks
Mrs Scarlott January 2022
We loved having our private hot tub to use, which was always ready for us, after a day exploring. The cottage was very warm inside, great as our stay was during January. The underfloor heating in the kitchen was especially welcome! The Gatehouse was well equipped and comfortable for us.

We had an excellent stay at the Gatehouse! The house was beautiful, very well equipped and it was immaculately clean when we arrived. The swimming pool and hot tub are great facilities and we really appreciated having timed slots for the pool so we had it to ourselves when we used it (with our boisterous 2 year-old!).

Mrs Clarke July 2020
The Gateway was an excellent location to relax and chill when you wished but ideal when exploring this area of Cornwall.
Mrs Stickland January 2020
We loved our stay at The Gatehouse. It is a private location with a fantastic hot tub which we even used in the rain! The cottage was very warm and cosy and was equipped with everything you need - even a bottle of Prosecco! The bed was really comfortable and the cottage was spotless. Thank you!

Well appointed cottage in central location. Lovely and peaceful with comfortable beds. Great facilities with hot tub, heated indoor pool and tennis court. Wonderful welcome and help from the owner who was always on hand for recommendations.
Mrs Slade April 2019
Great to be back at the Emerald, this time in a different property. Enjoyed the hot tub and quiet location. The owner sorted out any minor glitches very swiftly. Hope to be back again next year. Would thoroughly recommend. Another happy family holiday with Classic Cottages.
Mr Fuhrmann July 2018
We (family of 3) had very relaxing holidays in the Gatehouse. We really appreciated the warm welcome by The owner. What a kind host and what a specious, well kept holiday home with great facilities around. The location is very well situated to explore all of Cornwall.
Mrs Stace June 2018
Fabulous stay as always, and it was perfect for our toddler's first trip to Cornwall. The owner is a great host, always going above and beyond. Hoping to be back again next year.
Mr Griffith August 2017
Lovely cottage. Great place for a family holiday, with plenty of space for kids to enjoy themselves on site. Cottage is well equipped and spacious. Within easy reach of Falmouth (great beach) and Truro (great restaurants). Would recommend.
Mr Imperato July 2017
A great premium cottage, in a lovely settings, with excellent amenities and superb customer service.
Mrs Langdale April 2017
Very attractive cottage in a lovely secluded location within the grounds of 'the Emerald' and Melody Farm. Two or three minutes from the very nice warm pool building. Everything provided was first class, good quality pans and knives!! Enormous bed in the attractive bedroom. Lovely french windows to open up to the sunshine and very effective underfloor heating if it's chilly. Warm welcome from the cheery owner,who is there to help if needed, though not intrusive. Lots of lovely beaches North and South and gardens to explore within a fairly short distance

Mrs Henman October 2015
Fabulous place to stay, our son loved the swimming pool. I would highly recommend.
Mrs Coles October 2015
Fantastic break. Loved every minute of our time in The Gatehouse. Immaculately clean, spacious, luxurious furnishings and very well equipped. WIFI excellent and Netflix great as have a 3 year old who loves her films. Location perfect as peaceful and out of the way but still close to Falmouth, St Ives and Truro.
Facilities on site were excellent including very clean pool, play equipment for little one and fish to feed.
Highly recommend. Made to feel extremely welcome by the owner. Will definitely return for our next Cornwall break.
Mrs Herring-Matusiak August 2015
Expensive but luxurious holiday perfect for families and great for those who like to keep active while away. A bit of a drive from Falmouth if doing it every day but well placed close to lots of other sights of interest and close to lovely pubs, restaurants and walking trails
Mrs Woodhead July 2015
The cottage is incredibly comfortable. Although compact, each room is spacious: there is nothing to fault in my view. The furnishings are of the highest standard as is the cleanliness. The owners are very attentive, always welcoming comments. It is in a very good location - the surroundings are quiet and peaceful. The swimming pool, gym and tennis courts are what attracted us to the property - and now that the owner has also added a cricket net (so our boys didn't keep losing their balls in the bushes), we will be back.
Mrs Bonner-Davis May 2015
Absolutely fantastic place to stay, beautiful cottage and grounds couldn't have asked for anything more. We will definitely return to the Gatehouse in future. The grounds were spectacular and the kids loved the swimming pool and tennis courts. Very friendly, helpful owners and we are looking forward to staying here again. Couldn't have wished for a better holiday and we also had fabulous weather too! It would be difficult to improve on excellence!
Miss Kellett March 2015
Fantastic place to stay - great hosts, quality of furnishings, standard of cleanliness, amount of amenities and an easy to find location that wasn't far from all the main local attractions.
Mr Smith March 2015
The Gatehouse is a beautiful property with excellent up to date equipment and lovely furniture. The unrestricted use of the gym and swimming pool and a hospitable and friendly owner added to a wonderful relaxing week.
Mr Cleaver October 2014
A fabulous cottage, it exceeded our expectations and provided the perfect base for our week in Cornwall. Both the quality of the finish in the cottage and the friendliness of everyone we met ensured we had a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable holiday. We were made to feel at home and being able to use the garden and facilities whenever we wished was wonderful.
