The cottage was brilliant, we loved it! Will definitely stay with you again.
In overall terms, we found the facilities more than satisfactory and above what we expected. We are seriously considering another stay at an English Heritage property and have already recommended our findings to our friends. All I can say to everyone at English Heritage who helped to put this experience together, thank you very much. It was a most pleasurable experience.
Wow!! The standard of accommodation was excellent and the grounds were stunning. We had such a relaxing break with the family and our dog. We would thoroughly recommend No 2 Sovereigns Gate and would recommend it.
We loved our stay at the cottage and hope to visit again. Walking around the ground and beach when the house was closed was a particular highlight for us.
