The cottage had everything you could wish for to make an enjoyable stay for three generations of our family. Plenty of room to spread out and relax in the evenings in front of the log fire, and a dining table large enough to seat the fifteen of us around it. Beautiful walks can be had straight from the front door:...

So pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and that all the generations of the family enjoyed the holiday. We love the walks along the river too, they are so beautiful. We would love to welcome you all back again.
