Other Things to NoteAccess: Sugacottage is accessible by normal vehicles under most conditions although heavy rains may require the vehicle to be parked at the top of the driveway and Sugar will arrange to porter provisions down (40m). If you have a 4x4 at your disposal, bring it along and it will make travel around the village more comfortable (access to fishing spots on the river can be tricky).
