          Myself and a work colleague enjoyed a 2 night stay at Squirrels Leap at Riverlea. The host Terry was very friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed the quaint neighborhood and the neat, well supplied and decorated accommodation. The unit was beautiful, extremely comfortable and warm and all the home made touches made for a memorable experience. We would gladly recommend Riverlea.

          Riverlea is simply the best b and b - nothing was too much trouble for Terry who was an outstanding hostess - beautifully appointed spacious and comfortable accommodation with great attention to detail as well as sumptious breakfasts if required.  We were made most welcome and Riverlea really was home from home.  Highly recommended by our family.
