Great accommodation but information needs updating

The advertisement and documentation supplied talk of a gas log fire. This was a key attraction in the cold conditions. However the gas and log fire have been disconnected and are no longer functional. This was a major disappointment and very annoying as it took quite some time trying to follow the instructions before it became obvious that they were no longer in use. It was a bit of a worry too as I wasn’t sure whether the gas might be still turned on somewhere. The advertisement and information provided should be corrected.

Perfect minimoon

We stayed at White gates for the night of our wedding and the rest of the weekend, what an incredible spot it was so perfect. Both of us had our id whisked away by family at the wedding but they were so accommodating and understanding at check in, we were both blown away by the beauty of the place and all the decor not to mention those incredible robes and the massages we booked were perfect

Somewhere to sleep

A simple, elegant and incredible place to stay! My only criticism is that we were only there for one night.
