Please note we only accept bookings from people arriving in the one car as we have a shared driveway (with the owners of the adjoining semi) with only 1 parking space adjacent to our cottage. Also upon arrival please use the correct (northerly) access gate (we provide a photo when you book) as we only have a legal right of way via this gate to and from the beautiful Gillbank Country Estate. You should use this gate at all times during your stay, whether on foot or by car. Many thanks.
