Main things to be aware of are (1) Owners’ dogs could get into the front and back garden of the cottage – they told us the fence and gates were due...

Management response:

Many of the comments made in this review are simply untrue, The fridge/Freezer did fail during the stay and has now been replaced we did offer a partial refund for the faulty appliance but that obviously was not enough. As a company it is not our policy to offer refunds in exchange for good reviews. Gorsey Cottage remains a delightful...
