Outside: A garden with patio tables, chairs and BBQ provides a sunny place to sit outside and enjoy the warmer months.
Access to the cottage: The location of Hog Cottage is unique and as such, access to the road the cottage sits on is very narrow and steep. One car can be parked outside Hog Cottage on the lane but should the hill be a challenge to guests, additional parking is available close by on Gorsey Bank at the bottom of the hill.
