More about the property
Step back in time to the days of knights and battles where Castle Gate was once a Gate House with gun loops dating back to 13th century. Now retaining Ancient Monument status it has been lovingly restored by the current owners to provide accommodation of tremendous character and charm.
Solid wood floors, beams and exposed granite stone feature throughout this three storey building that has been sensitively furnished to accentuate its medieval style. A flight of stairs leads up to the first floor and lobby where you will find a spacious bedroom with a stylish contemporary walk in shower and separate en-suite WC. A wooden staircase leads down to a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet. The open plan lounge diner occupies the second floor where views from a large stable window stretches out towards the neighbouring castle. Here chancel screens salvaged from a local church divide the well equipped kitchen that houses a multi-fuel range cooker and the stable doors at the far end lead onto a decked patio with a deep step leading to a further patio and enclosed private garden with small pond.
Discover the mesmeric landmark attraction of St Michael's Mount, reached by foot across the causeway or ferry depending on the tide. Explore the characterful harbour framed by cute cottages or visit the gardens that climb up to the fortress (website hidden) St ives on the north coast is a must with fabulous restaurants, boutiques and galleries dotted around the pretty harbour. Within a five minute walk to the mile long beach of Praa Sands you will also find a nine hole golf course and an excellent pub and restaurant overlooking the beach.
There is private parking in front of the property for four cars.

Property Manager, renovated properties for 10+ years. I also work in the customer service industry. Been holiday letting since 2004 with Cornish cottage Holidays,but now with airbnb, more flexible with bookings easier.
I like travelling Thailand, Cambodia,Vietnam,India, and most of Europe air bnb this is helpful to book and stay in the destination of your choice at short notice as well convenient.
I work as well as let, can be hard but delegate work out and employ proffessional cleaners and gardeners to upkeep Castle Gate to keep to good standard.
All guests very majority are excellent and treat Castle Gate as they would their own home. Simple things like strip beds and leave towels in one bundle, One black bin bag to be placed in black bin at the end of the drive any recycling leave in bins provided we do this ourselves.If you have more than one black bin bag rubbish tye up and leave in kitchen.Bin day is Mondays if on two week or more stay, and care with sand brought in from the beach. Little things ensure cleaner has more time to concentrate on other areas.
My motto is to work hard,challenge yourself at all levels, motivate others to succeed.
Favourite foods all cuisines I will try but only eat chicken and dish and don't eat processed foods I very been into sport all my life.
I like off beaten track travelling and don't mind luxury now and again myself who doesn't.
Enjoy your life to the full. Work hard to enjoy life pleasures.
