The welcome was very good. We were provided with a very good dinner and wonderful breakfast. The room was spotlessly clean with all amenities guests could require. We would definitely recommend Riverview Cottage. The hosts are delightful people and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Our sincere thanks to both John and Sharon.
