The cottage was lovely - tastefully but simply decorated with thoughtful additions, a bottle of wine, fresh sweet peas, breakfast/tea tray. The furniture and furnishings had obviously been chosen with great care. The owners' garden was a picture, beautifully tended.

River View is a delightful cottage, with a fab view and set in a very peaceful location. Owners were extremely welcoming. Can't fault anything. Cups were laid out on arrival all ready for a cuppa. Along with a bottle of bucks fizz! There were a lot of small touches which made it that bit nicer. A really wonderful stay!

A very peaceful, quiet setting but not far from the town facilities. Easy access to tourist venues but also places not so much on the tourist route. A beautiful part of the country.

Stayed here for the weekend. It was a lovely place and the garden was impressive. We received a very friendly welcome and the cottage had several welcoming touches. The owners allowed us to store our bikes in the garage which was very handy. I would recommend this cottage to all.

The cottage was inviting from the minute you opened the door with the welcoming drinks and the breakfast tray laid out ready for the morning. The views were breathtaking, the walks were a breath of fresh air and the locals were friendly.
