Being right By the side of the river with the sound of the water was so calming and the dogs were in 'heaven' great location for walking. It is a shame that there were no shops in walking distance but that did not dampen our enthusiasm neither did the weather. I particularly liked the Arga .... Have never used one before but it was great and so easy to use particularly as the instructions were clear and easy to follow. Would definitely go back sometime😀

The cottage was clean and cosy and very comfortable beds. The owners Val and Steve were friendly and had thought of everything you required for a self catering holiday. The location was central for most local areas. Very enjoyable holiday would return again and would recommend to any holiday guests.
