A great break away for two with lots of little extras. DVD collection and cake on arrival. Would definitely recommend a stay here. 🙂

The cottage itself is really well decorated and we had everything we needed while staying there, the added touch of having access to the leisure facilities at the riverside hotel was great and the boys loved going for a swim, there was plenty of parking at the hotel for us and we even had dinner there with the extra 10% off.
