We stayed in Gardeners Cottage for a family celebration (daughter's 18th birthday surprise). We had the whole cottage to ourselves having booked the 3 rooms. Sandwich is beautiful. We ate at Luigi's restaurant in the town where the food was awesome. On our return we ventured over to the lovely big house for a drink in the famous living room that has become so familiar from Gogglebox and we were delighted to be joined shortly after by Dom and Tigger who stayed with us until 2.45 am. We were honoured to be able to toast Dom a happy 50th birthday at midnight and the surprise for my daughter could not have gone better. Dom and Tigger were the perfect hosts. The cottage was beautiful - clean and comfy. The next morning we explored the stunning Secret Gardens where once again we bumped into Dom and Tigger who impressively remembered our names. It's little things like that that make you feel special. It was the most relaxing weekend ever and we would love to return one day. As my daughter pointed out, it's not everyone who can say they got tiddly for the first time on their 18th whilst celebrating with Dom from Gogglebox on his 50th! Thank you for a memorable stay in a beautiful environment.
