Not our first visit to the Cottage Hotel but first time for New Year. Our stay was just perfect as we have come to expect. Food was superb as was the champagne on New Year’s Eve and the cream tea the next day. Thanks William ,Sarah and all the staff for your excellent service.

I don't think that there is an explicit dress code, but it is an old world dining room with an old world atmosphere. So we always dressed appropriately - slacks and long sleeved shirt etc. If there was a lift, we did not use it. There is only one floor abovee gound. The staff are most helpful in helping to move items to and from the rooms. There is a small parking lot at the entrance and I am sure that the owners will keep a spot there for you if asked.

We were not staying at the hotel. We had an evening meal to celebrate a 70th birthday which was brilliant. Sorry I can't help you.
