    Property is old and a bit run down but that is part of its appeal. Very warm cosy house lovely large lounge area, master bedroom has ensuite. Main bathroom practical, laundry included in same room. Plenty of crockery, glasses etc. Nice deck which catches the sun for a good part of day. Fully fenced if you have a small child or a dog. Location is superb. We will certainly be back. I have rated 4 stars as for the price it is a very good deal.

    Ver spacious and comfortable. The close promimity to the river and lovely walks / cycling along the river suited us. The use of the two bikes was a bonus.

    This is a lovely place to stay, very well equipped, spacious and comfortable, with thoughtful improvements made since we last stayed there a few years ago when there were different owners. It's ideally located and well set up for anglers.
