About Robert Newman
Bob and Sarah have lived locally for the past 40 years in a listed farmhouse and have a love of old buildings. They have two daughters and two grandchildren, all of whom love to stay at The East Gate when the opportunities arise! The grandchildren particularly enjoy staying in their "Castle"!
Robert Newman purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Robert Newman chose Warwick
Warwick, the County Town of Warwickshire, is steeped in history and is easily accessible. When the opportunity arose to purchase The East Gate, it was like a dream come true for Bob and Sarah. They jumped at the chance to restore the building to its former glory. Previous to the sale the building had not been accessible to the public for hundreds of years and so they were eager to share the experience of staying in this unique property with guests from all over the world.
What makes this Apartment unique
The East Gate, whilst being a haven of tranquillity, is ideally situated to walk to the numerous shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. Standing on the battlements, either by day or in the evening, with a cup of coffee, or something stronger, one can see the town from all directions from this unique vantage point.

Comfortable, stunning, unique
Modern accommodation in a six hundred year old setting. Simply cannot be duplicated. Enjoyed every minute of our stay. Wonderful owners.
Maria and family were the perfect guests.
They enjoyed and respected the history of the building and left the apartment clean and tidy. I would love to have them stay again.
This is a unique property. It is situated in the middle of town, handy for shops, restaurants and the castle. The building itself is amazing, and has been very well restored, losing none of the features of the building. However the modern additions, bathrooms, kitchen are all the best quality, with everything you would need provided. It is very warm and cozy. All in all one of the best properties we’ve stayed in.
Very nice family who left the apartment clean and tidy.
Character and comfort.
Great place to stay. Perfect for the castle. So much history and character. Loved it.
Really enjoyed our stay, very relaxing
Loved the building, as an historian buff staying at the east gate was very appealing. The house was very comfortable and warm, we would recommend a stay at the east gate to anyone. Robert and his wife had thought of everything even a picknick basket and crystal whiskey glasses for my whiskey
Stunning 1400's residence
What a lovely place. Huge ceilings, ramparts with a 270 degree view, a very well stocked house, comfy beds, great showers, easy to walk around the town centre - I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone.

We were looking to stay in or around Warwick for a few days so we could visit the castle with our 2 children, 14 and 12, for the spooky Halloween week Staying in the East Gate and St. Peters Chapel was like staying in our very own castle.

I would recommend anyone to stay here, the property was spotlessly clean and tidy. The owners really have thought of everything!
On arrival, Bob gave a very interesting tour of this amazing building and told a fantastic story of the buildings history dating back to the 14th century, even the furniture has a history! Its not everyday you can stay at a place like this and we can not wait to go back.
I could keep praising this amazing place all day! The bed was amazingly comfortable. The shower was like standing under a waterfall we could not find any fault with the place at all
