The Gatehouse is one of 5 Grade 2 listed gatehouses that guard the entrances to the historic Port Eliot Estate. The village is steeped in history, and the Norman fronted Church was once the cathedral for Cornwall Just a 100 yards from the mansion house. 50 yards from the Church (CofE) 300 yards from the train station 100 yards from Scholars wine bar and Restaurant 100 yards from The Eliot Arms and the local shop 2 miles from A38 and petrol station 20 minutes by train from Plymouth.
“The Gatehouse is a fantastic AirBnB find. Much more spacious than the pictures indicate, it was comfortable and had lovely touches like a fire laid ready, heated towel rail on and a vase full of fresh daffodils. We stayed four nights, drank at local pub, ate at local restaurants and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.it was a real highlight to have access to walk around the estate. Absolutely brilliant, and a great base from which to explore Cornwall.”
Our Apartment is on the first floor of a two storey building, situated in the lovely Cornish village of Downderry. The village is on the coast with a small fishing fleet and unspoilt stony / rocky beach, fantastic rockpools too. Within a 10 minute walk there is a Vegan cafe, a Restaurant / Deli, a village shop and a traditional English pub with great sea views.
“Thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful apartment, situated in the lovely village of Downderry. We arrived on the 28th October to a clean apartment with a lovely gesture of dairy essentials left for us in the fridge, this was very much appreciated. The apartment was fully equipt with everyday items which we could freely use. Thank you once again for letting us stay at your apartment. Hope to stay again soon. Kind Regards Rhys and Gareth”

The room was spacious with own private bathroom and TV. There was a shared seating area with a good selection of tea and coffee for breakfast . Karin was very kind and helpful . Always had a comforting smile on her face .. would recommend this place to anyone visiting both Cornwall and Plymouth .”
