Tixall Gatehouse is a fine example of Elizabethan architecture, which was built in about 1580. It has long outlasted the great house it once served. It stands proudly overlooking fields towards the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal, which widens here to form a lake, Tixall Wide. The roof is paved with stone, and you can stand up here among the balustrades and turret tops to make the most of the stunning view. Tixall Gatehouse sleeps up to six people in two single bedrooms, one twin bedroom, and one double bedroom.
