"Had a lovely 2 week stay here. The cottage is lovely & cosy and we have no complaints. The kitchen is well stocked and we love the layout. Such a beautiful location and a comfy cottage! All in all, it’s been lovely and a pleasure to stay here, so close to all the shops and the river so that we could go for lovely evening strolls and feed the ducks. We hope to be back soon."Mary and Steve 2017-09-08
