Thanks for your review of the Gate Cottage ??? our 2 storey self-cater cottage. Indeed the bedrooms and bathroom are on the 2nd level, and they do have dorma ceilings (with dorma windows in both bedrooms overlooking the heritage gardens). We think this feature is part of the character of the cottage, but it???s not to everyone???s liking! By way of clarification, we advise that our classic deluxe rooms are in a different building, which does not have any dorma ceilings.

We???re sorry your stay didn't quite meet expectations. Your concern the bed linen was not right in our historic suite is absolutely of concern to us. As owners & hosts, we're always available on site. This could have been rectified immediately. Incidentally, we have since changed to a new linen service. Additional facilities in the suite do include antique furnishings, espresso coffee machine, gas log fire, large corner spa, complimentary mineral water, its own sitting area & private terrace.
