Gelston Castle Courtyard

What We Offer >> Gelston Castle Courtyard

The old (c. 1800) listed stable courtyard has 5 separate houses for self-catering holidays:

  1. Courtyard House 1 - sleeps 6
  2. Courtyard House 2 - sleeps 6
  3. Courtyard House 3 - sleeps 8 (new from April 2020)
  4. Courtyard House 4 - sleeps 6
  5. Courtyard House 7 - sleeps 4


Extended families and other groups find the courtyard ideal for holidays together: you are all in one place, yet you can also escape to your own house, shut the door and let your hair down in privacy. Not like being all in one big house. Grandparents who want to be at an even safer distance can stay at Kirkmirren Cottage - some say it's a perfect arrangement! Max 30 beds, or 34 incl. Kirkmirren.

Eating together for larger groups

Taking two or more houses and want to eat together? No problem. There is now a multi-purpose space in the courtyard specially created for the purpose, with long folding tables which you can configure as you like. There is high quality "mood" lighting for dining as well as bright lighting for when the space is used as a games room etc. (see Courtyard Leisure Facilities).

Boring but Important

  • Laundry room with Miele commercial washer, tumble-driers, big sink.
  • Drying room (proper) in courtyard, washing line in garden.
  • Free wifi throughout courtyard, including pool courtyard and barbecue terrace.
  • Mobile reception is patchy and you generally have to go outside, but major networks have signal depending on exact location.
  • Smoking is no longer permitted in the cottages (sorry!), so please smoke outside - there are places under cover if it's wet.
