We were greeted on arrival by both Peter and Jane Townsend, who directed us on to the front lawn for parking. This was the start of an incredibly enjoyable three night stay. The room was spacious, the en suite was compact with a large, easy to use shower. The bed was comfy with high quality pillows and high class towels....

We really enjoyed staying here, with lovely, friendly hosts and a gorgeous riverside setting, yet so close to all the amenities. Our son and daughter-in-law were in room 2, with a comfortable 4-poster bed [+a single] and a river view. My husband and I were in room 1, with a very comfy half-tester and dual aspect river views. Both rooms...
