We stayed in the perfectly appointed guineafowl cottage and our stay was wonderful. The owners are extremely knowledgeable about the area, very welcoming and the grounds are immaculate. The setting over the river is breathtaking. One of the highlights was the amazing company of Roxy and Storm, the river dogs. We want to go back already.
