  • Absolutely stunning view of the river

    Absolutely stunning view of the river. A modern kitchen and very comfortable bed with a suitable bathroom. Excellent tv and BBQ. Wi-fi services worked better in certain parts of the accommodation than others but the view was so breathtaking it really didn't matter. The unit is attached to the owners home and is very open to the river so at times it didn't feel 100% private with people fishing and boating but with such warm and respectful hosts it was impossible not to feel at ease.
