Other Notes

Because of Hog Cottage unique location the entrance road to the cottage is very steep and narrow and although there is parking for one car on the lane outside the cottage many guests find the hill a challenging experience and prefer to park at the bottom of Gorsey Bank.

The garden at the front is mainly laid with flagstones and then flowerbed and shrubs and in the summer months is enclosed, but during the winter when bushes aren't in full bloom please be aware there is a 3 ft dropped walll down to the service road.
