The Gate Lodge details
Expect the unexpected at The Gate Lodges, located a short drive from Sibton Park Estate. These Grade II listed lodges, designed by the celebrated neoclassical architect James Wyatt, have been ingeniously extended and marry historical architecture with modern comforts.
The interiors are chic and clean, with luxurious finishing touches to reflect the character of the property. Entering via the west lodge, itself a cosy reading ‘snug’, guests descend the main staircase to find a well-appointed kitchen complete with all modern conveniences. The cavernous drawing room beyond complements Wyatt’s style perfectly with curved walls and high ceilings with floor-to-ceiling French windows opening to a private sun terrace. The light-filled master bedroom features full height French windows which lead out to another private terrace. The property features a luxurious en-suite bathroom complete with an indulgent bath tub and even its own mosaic tiled steam room.
