Great view of the river from the cabin. My family enjoyed cooking overseeing the river :) :) :) and short Lynway walk is beautiful. not to forget, it was given to us very clean condition. Additionally the multi colour lit christmas tree was fantastic addition to the hall. Superb set beds, spotless clean kitchen and toilets, easy set up heating, comfy sofas and free Wi-Fi. excellent rate as well. Highly recommended for everyone. Thumbs up :) :) :)
