The cottage was beautiful, with every convenience. Ruth and Gareth, the owners in the house next door, had thoughtfully provided a comprehensive supply of food and drink items to ease us into the evening and our first breakfast. They were also more than helpful when we had a problem operating the drier, and quickly dried our things themselves. The gardens around the house were lovely with views of the river. The Red Lion Inn is a beautiful old place with lots of interesting curios and fantastic food. We also ate extremely well at Once Upon a Table just a few yards further down Main Street. When you stay here you must make time to visit the Norman Rockwell Museum and the Shaker Village (food was great here too) Both of which are superb. I have already recommended the cottage and area to friends and colleagues.
