The Orchard Cottages

Doyle Properties acquired Gateacre Grange in 2002. The site compromises of 4.5 acres, a large Victorian building and a series of dilapidated outbuildings and stables. After extensive renovation and development the site is now home to 33 units (1-3 bedroom). The extensive grounds have been carefully landscaped to complement the site. Approximately 1000tonnes of sandstone excavated from the site has been used in the landscaping of the grounds. The development is covered by CCTV, with security gates restricting access to residents only.

These newly built cottages were built on the footings of outbuildings that were previously on the site and were completed in 2008. They are named after the beautiful orchard in which the cottages are set. All cottages are two bed roomed with a large open plan living dining. Each cottage boasts an outside terrace which leads to the orchard within the grounds.

Gateacre Grange development was recently named Seafarers Drive. All properties at Seafarers Drive are surrounded by beautifully maintained grounds within the gated development. All residents have access to off road parking. Each property is finished to a high standard and can be furnished or unfurnished as required.
