    We loved our stay in this gorgeous, well-equipped cottage. Our two wee boys also loved the supply of books and games and the sheep to talk to over the fence! We'll definitely be back!

    This was our second time staying at Riverlee - this time with our kids. They loved it just as much as we do! Will definitely be back.

    What was already an excellent cottage has now been improved further with the addition of the spa which we enjoyed. Also the path to the river is well worth taking and being able to sit on the new bench seat and enjoy the river, the birds and the trees is quite magic.

    Owner/manager responds:

    We're glad you enjoyed yourselves. Just to avoid any misunderstandings for other guests, the 'spa' is an outdoor bath. Thanks for your feedback.
