The Gatehouse

Escape to a Cornish arcadia where a heavenly retreat for four with a hot tub, indoor swimming pool, and spa await to steal the heart and soothe the soul.


Nestled within a picturesque orchard on the beautiful south coast of Cornwall, The Gatehouse promises a setting straight from a storybook. In a private location sheltered by trees and manicured hedgerows, our darling abode is just made for couples, families and friends to flee the everyday and fall into spellbinding reveries. And it’s dog friendly too. Settle into the beautifully curated, open-plan interiors of our stunning homestay where warm tones and sumptuous furnishings beckon for true relaxation, before slipping outside to enjoy the suntrap terrace and bubbling hot tub. To weave wonder into your staycation, a shared indoor heated swimming pool, gym and spa offer moments of serenity, while private grounds beckon for slow walks under golden sun. Adding even more magic, enchanting adventures can be sought nearby, from the Roseland’s sandy hem of beaches to the Michelin-recommended eateries of Falmouth to the quiet creeks of the River Fal.

Eco Escapism

The Gatehouse is part of The Emerald, an award-winning development which is the only truly zero carbon holiday destination in the country having been awarded Code 6 status, the highest possible grading for eco efficiency. Within the five acres of shared grounds is a solar farm which generates all the energy The Emerald needs and more. There is also a useful Tesla charging point for electric cars at The Emerald (please bring your own adaptor for other makes). The owners politely ask that you state on arrival if you plan to take advantage of this service as it is chargeable.


Uncover the heavenly living space, with an open-plan design framed by vaulted ceilings and rustic, exposed wooden beams. Gently illuminated by natural light, it sits alongside glass patio doors that open onto the private, south-facing terrace and alfresco hot tub – perfect in summer when balmy breezes drift in from the garden. Exuding warmth, mottled blush tones adorn a statement feature wall, complemented by off-white walls and wooden floors. A large, comfortable sofa and armchair gather around a brushed wood coffee table and wood burning stove, proposing irresistibly cosy hours when day turns to dusk. For endless entertainment, an iPod dock and Smart TV with Netflix await for those cosy evenings fireside.

Eating and Dining

Styled in an open-plan design, the sublime Shaker-style kitchen resides alongside the living area and provides an idyllic space for crafting delicious feasts. Mirroring the statement walls of the lounge, it radiates a warm, cosy feel, complemented by open beams and warmed by spotlights. Overhead, the vaulted ceiling features a statement chandelier, evoking a fairytale feel, and the beautiful limestone floor is warmed by underfloor heating for year-round comfort.

To prepare culinary masterpieces, spacious rose-flecked granite work surfaces top pistachio-hued units, while a matching kitchen island takes centre stage in the middle of the room, joined by two dark wood stools. Savour slow moments with cups of coffee from the espresso pod machine, or find inspiration as you prepare your favourite meals from this exquisite space. Once ready to dine, courses can be relished in the adjoining dining space with dining table, paired bench seating and cushion-topped wicker chairs, or outside on the suntrap terrace.

Sleeping and Bathing

The Gatehouse has two beautiful bedrooms to choose from.

The master suite exudes ambience with rich purple hues on the walls and soft carpet underfoot. At the centre, a super king-size bed takes pride of place, bedecked in the finest linens and complete with an electronically controlled adjustable mattress. On the walls, feature panels and elegant artworks draw the eye, while vying for attention are idyllic views through glass-panelled French doors over the terrace and orchard beyond. This bedroom is complete with its own ensuite bathroom in apricot with a double walk-in drench-head shower.

A peaceful haven, the second bedroom accommodates a variety of sleeping arrangements with a comfortable super king-size bed that can be transformed into twins upon request. Tastefully contrasting neutral shades with elegant wooden touches, it proposes blissful nights of repose with soothing serenity and the highest quality furnishings. Encouraging lingering lie-ins, the bed is enswathed in super-soft sheets and topped with sumptuous cushions and throws, and overlooks views of the orchard from the windows. Meanwhile, promising space to stow belongings are a wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside tables.

The Gatehouse is also home to a family bathroom with a marble-esque statement wall. A dreamy space for bubble-topped soaks, this bathroom features underfloor heating and a luxurious, double-ended claw-foot bath on a raised step.
