Accommodation at Wolfeton House

The Gatehouse at Wolfeton is available for overnight stays.

Staying at this medieval gatehouse gives a true flavour of what life must have been like if you were lucky enough to warrant such lodgings. The Gatehouse once framed the approach to a grand forecourt and the great of many kinds have passed through it.

The accommodation is mainly on the first floor, reached by a wide and ancient spiral staircase made of oak. The corner turrets are called into service for kitchen and bathrooms.The two main rooms have Jacobean fireplaces, and turret rooms leading off them. A garret above and the guardroom below provide extra bedrooms. In winter, you can stoke up the fire, just as the Dorset nobility did hundreds of years ago.
