Previous visitors' comments about Gorrans Down Cottage:
The cottage was everything we expected and more. Loved the wood burner. The weather was not kind to us, but the cottage more than made up for that.
Mrs Spencer, Melksham, November 2012
It was a unique experience to stay in a 12th Century thatch cottage.
Mrs Wales, Chesterfield, September 2012
I liked the remoteness of the cottage and it was bliss not having any neighbors.
