    We have stayed in many B&B during our travels over the years but Riverside Cottage is the best of the best. The setting is wonderful, picturesque, ideally located on the outskirts of town and managed by excellent hosts, Donna and Simon.

    Hi Meriam Yes we do take doggies but only in the self catering apartment. Let me know the dates, if you'd like to book. The apartment is only 1 king size bed room though so not sure if you're travelling with anyone else.
