Recently awarded VisitEngland Gold Award in 4* category of excellence, Gillies was built in 2002, to very high standards, with traditional flint pebble finishing outside, delightful original wildlife pictures etc inside. It was substantially refurbished in summer 2014 with new kitchen and improved downstairs sleeping arrangements. The owner has been visiting Overy Staithe for over 60 years and has built an exceptionally comfy house which reflects his love of sailing, bird watching and family holidays, literally within yards of the sea in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With three very comfortable en-suite double bedrooms, two twin-bedded rooms downstairs with folding beds for children if needed. Free wifi facilities. There is full central heating (underfloor downstairs) with LPG hob and cordon bleu cooking facilities, and a heated dog room (and room for more dogs in the utility room - but only good house trained dogs, no puppies and no dogs allowed upstairs or on furniture please. Also, because of unfortunate past experiences, we now have to make a small extra charge for dogs. Nevertheless, nice dogs and Gillies go brilliantly together!) Free linen, towels etc provided. A large shower room, washing machine and tumble dryer provide all that is needed by sailors and walkers, whatever the weather and there are many relevant seafood recipe books, bird and local history guides. Excellent gastro pub, The Hero, a short stroll away and many restaurants within easy reach by car. Please note that this is not a buy to rent property and is a family holiday home, not let for profit but merely to recover some costs. Unfortunately, this means that August, Half Terms, New Year and Easter are reserved for the family and we do get booked up early by previous visitors. Please note that our change over day is normal a Friday. Out of main seasons we also welcome short stay and long week end visitors (minimum 3 nights) with big reductions on our full weekly prices. Because of our five star status our quoted prices are not negotiable.
Perfect for our family from 80 -2yrs.

Family Weekend Birthday Celebration
By Richard B on 19-May-2017
Our family (10 of us) had a lovely weekend stay celebrating my wife's special birthday. Gillies is a fabulous house with outstanding views over the tidal estuary and beyond. We found the accomodation very clean and everything we wanted was there. The bedrooms were very comfortable as were the sitting and dining rooms. We would not hesitate to visit again.
