Stairs and Mobility

Guests are advised that all rooms in Gatsby House involve some stairs and therefore are not suitable for guests with restricted mobility.

The Cary Grant bedroom has the fewest stairs to climb, as there is just one flight of staris. Secret Cottage has just three steps to the bedroom area and is therefore ideal for those guests who are elderly and prefer no to have to climb stairs.

Outdoor Space and Parking

Parking is on the road in front of Gatsby House. Spaces are plentiful but, if required, there is a free public car park 200 yards away. There is no garden at Gatsby House or Secret Cottage. There is a large gravel yard to the rear of Gatsby House and this is shared with Secret Cottage. The cottage has independent access from the road.
