The weather was perfect, the river sang all day, the Lodge and the Cottage both provided excellent accomodation for the wedding; and the outdoor setting of a raised deck in a walled garden flanked by the Lodge was truly wonderful. Great to set the tables outside under all the umbellas to keep us in the shade, flowers in the frame, and the bride and groom just so attractive! You don't need to be a fisherman to stay here. Everyone will find friendliness, peace and comfort.
