Gore Cottage has been in and out of the family since the 1840's and stands on its own in its own secluded garden on the edge of West Milton; it is stone built with a thatched roof and porch.  The countryside is ideal for walking and bird watching

It sleeps five, plus a cot: upstairs there are two double rooms, one with a double bed, the other with two singles, and a single room downstairs, which is the room with the landline telephone; the compact bathroom (with full sized bath and basin) and separate WC and wash basin are also downstairs. The kitchen is large enough to eat in and there is a separate sitting room with a multi-fuel stove. There is another WC in the thatched garden shed.

There is a garage at the end of the lane and parking for a second car on the concrete apron. There is then a walk of about 100 yards along the footpath, across the foot bridge over the stream, to get to the cottage.

The cottage is fully equipped and all the appliances are electric: cooker, microwave, fridge and automatic washing machine. The electricity - light, heating and hot water - is included in the rent. There is a landline telephone. Pillows, blankets and eiderdowns NOT duvets, and bed linen and towels are provided.
