Stayed at The Riverbank on a December weekend as a family with teens and toddlers & can honestly say everyone enjoyed their stay and it was the highlight of our trip. We didnt even want to leave the house! The hot tub is an added bonus but the beds are comfy, it is both open and spacious but cosy too. The owners provide games & sky TV for each roomRead more.

The most beautiful cottage, with a lovely garden, which was set out in interesting little sections.

A perfect get away. A beautiful home with plenty of space but also gives the feeling of being together. The garden was secure for our dog (we were concerned to what extent, as we have stay places that definitely were not) The hog tub was perfect to watch the sun go down after walking the hills.
