We had a lovely stay at Duck Cottage. Awesome place to relax. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. It was peaceful and the surroundings are kept clean and the units are equipped with all the basics to facilitate a visitor's needs barring a microwave. We were received in a friendly manner by the owner Sally and will recommend the River Cottages to friends and family.

The place is cool no noise no crowd, and I had a wonderful holidays with my family there. Not forgetting a lovely reception. That place is a home away from home indeed. The owners are bubbly they treated us like our family. We had a great time thank you!

Perfect for listening to mother nature in morning all the birds whistling, running around and wild animals just being themselves.
