“Had a great time on our 2nd visit to
Saltersgate. We made use of the free
pass to Dalby Forest by doing the
Gruffalo Trail and went swimming
twice. We will be back!”

Overview & Features

About Saltersgate Cottage

Rebuilt in 1982 from the original stone of the old stock room, Saltersgate’s lovely large sitting room faces south and west over the upper courtyard. Saltersgate shares access to the wonderful secret walled garden.

Pets are welcome in Saltersgate, however the garden is not enclosed.
