Stayed Longer Than Intended.

5 of 5
The accommodation was excellent and Lorna and Adrian couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Once I had settled in, they took the trouble to check if all was to my satisfaction. Everything needed was provided and the unit was beautifully clean and tidy. I actually extended my stay by four days!

excellent location, very relaxing and comfortable stay

5 of 5
the property is well located by the river and is very relaxing. The location is within reach to few shops, but at the same time gives the feel of being on your own and enjoy nature. Will suit anyone looking to have a break away from busy city schedule.
