The room was delightful, all the little touches were better than a five star hotel. The breakfast was amazing and plenty of it. I have travelled to many places in and out of the UK... More

Updown Cottage is perfect for a peaceful, relaxing stay in the beautiful Downgate area. Caroline and Peter were great hosts - friendly, helpful and good company. On my first morning there they recommended a beautiful countryside walk which was perfect after such a filling and exquisite breakfast (I highly recommend the pancake with berries!). I was staying there to attend... More
