    Another enjoyable relaxing stay at Hillgate we have been many times before and it never disappoints ,we take our dog with us each time which he enjoys exploring the secure garden and many walks around the beautiful cottage and beyond, many thanks to Tony and Sheena for the use of the cottage and a special thank you to the cleaner who does an excellent job. We hope to return very soon.
