A lovely cottage with a pretty riverside location. However, as the location is so well isolated, Summer/Autumn bookings may be a better option than Spring. The weather we experienced denied us the opportunity to do justice to the surrounding vista.

Beautiful, peaceful location with stunning scenery. A couple of good walks from doorstep. Tastefully furnished, comfortable bed and decent shower. One of the best welcome baskets weve had.
