It’s sad to say that this beautiful property is ruined by noise. Not just from the social club and pub opposite ( advertised) but the car park behind the property being used as a meeting point for cars and their owners bringing subwoofers to play full volume , using car horns to play tunes. Cars doing donuts. All very intimidating.

Gatehouse Croft is a historic building which has been imaginatively repurposed as a holiday let. It has ALL the facilities you could possibly desire. The ground floor living space is expansive, and each of the bedrooms has its own small sitting area. We did experience some noise from the local pub and social club. However, this is specifically mentioned in the description of the accommodation, and it is worth this minor inconvenience to stay in such a lovely place.

For our son, a professional jazz musician, Christmas 2014 was a busy period, with gigs up and down the country. As a result, he could not make it home to the Isle of Wight from his house in Leeds. We therefore decided to celebrate a 'delayed Christmas' in mid-January and, in order to share the travelling, we agreed to meet at Polesworth, which lies about half way between the two. We rented the Gatehouse Croft for the weekend and had the most wonderful stay. The house is probably the best-equipped rental accommodation in which we have ever stayed and we lacked for nothing. With its mixture of Mediaeval structure and modern facilities, it was extremely comfortable and, indeed, on the coldest night of the year [minus 4 C], we were as warm as toast, thanks to the log fire and the under-floor central heating. The whole place was spotless and beautifully presented and we received the friendliest of welcomes from the custodian, Father Philip, who gave excellent guidance on shopping, sightseeing and walks for out two Golden Retrievers: Sherlock and Mycroft. The village itself has a good range of shops, including a small Co-op supermarket and a superb 'old-fashioned' butcher's shop, selling first class local produce. There is a good fish and chip shop near by but the real find was the American Diner, just down the road, whose burgers and milkshakes were first class. We will certainly visit again!

What a lovely idea to book a cottage for a delayed Christmas. Thank you so much for the kind words. We are glad you found some good walks nearby - and we hope Sherlock and Mycroft enjoyed it too! Hopefully we will welcome you back soon.

Living only a mile away from this property we have watched the scaffolding erected and builders come and go and read about the lottery funded restoration of Polesworth Abbey gatehouse, so with friends from Lincolnshire coming to visit for the week it was a perfect excuse to book the property as a base to introduce them to the area - and oh boy, are we glad we did. This is one of the most amazing properties it has been our privilege to stay in. Full of character and charm you could feel the history in every beam, wall and rafter whilst enjoying the modern day comfort of under floor heating, free Wi-Fi and dishwasher. The welcome from Fr. Philip and his flock made us proud to say we were locals and we were amazed at the discoveries we made about our own locality and heritage. Situated on the Warwickshire/Staffordshire/Leicestershire boarder the property is an ideal base for days out to Bosworth Battle Field, the National Memorial Arboretum Drayton Manor Theme Park, Twycross Zoo and many more attractions as well as been about 45 minutes from Birmingham or Nottingham in you require a serious shopping day, Theatres etc. It should be noted that there are steep stairs to the top floor where the twin room is situated which would be unsuitable for young children or the less mobile. We are so pleased that we decided to 'holiday at home' - it was just fantastic and a place we would certainly recommend and can't wait to return to.
