Superb cottage in a wonderful location with river and countryside views from every window. Very quiet location yet all local amenities within easy reach. The Cottage had everything you could want and the Welcome pack was the best we have ever had and we have stayed in many cottages throughout the UK and abroad. Altogether, a wonderful base for a tranquil holiday.
