Golden Gates Lodge
Lodge | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Eastnor Castle Estate lies in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside and runs up to the foot of the southern end of the Malvern Hills. Golden Gates Lodge is located in Eastnor Deer Park, and there is easy access to local footpaths and open countryside.
The Lodge comprises two listed buildings, separated by a gold and black wrought iron gate, and lies close to the footpath which crosses the Park and takes walkers up onto the ridge of the Malvern Hills 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. Guests can enjoy complimentary entry to Eastnor Castle during public opening times.
The two single storey gate lodges have been superbly refurbished and decorated to provide high quality self catering holiday accommodation in a unique setting. The larger of the two lodges has a delightful sitting room, with free view TV/DVD/WiFi, and is equipped with a wood burning stove, with a free supply of wood from the fully stocked log store by the rear entrance. The kitchen, with dining table for 4 people, is fully equipped with electric oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer, washing machine and microwave. A kitchen door provides a side entrance. The twin bedroom has an ensuite 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 lavatory and a separate shower room with wash basin. Families should note that this smaller lodge is completely separate and adjacent to the main lodge.
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.
There is ample parking and guests are allowed to take one well behaved dog (kitchen/sitting room only).

The Heart of England/Peak District
On the border of Wales, Herefordshire boasts spectacular countryside and is steeped in history. If it’s walking, canoeing, ruins, castles, churches, gardens, or family fun, there are many things for everyone to do here. The county hosts many events – from rural galas and ploughing matches, to literary, poetry and music festivals, marmalade and scarecrow fairs. The town of Hereford is based in the heart of the county, surrounded by a necklace of individual market towns, each with their own style and story to tell.
The ancient market town of Ledbury, 4 miles from Eastnor, 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, Ross on Wye, the Cotswolds and Forest of Dean.

"Truly excellent accommodation in beautiful setting"
This far exceeded expectation, it is very well and elegantly equipped, warm, comfortable and in an outstanding location - the Deer Park of Eastnor Castle. A marvellous place to visit the surrounding Herefordshire towns and countryside, nearby Ledbury - also try The Butchers Arms at Eldersfield for remarkable food, do book in advance.
