We were totally overwhelmed when we got to River Cottage, it exceeded all our expectations. We were a family of five adults from Western Australia visiting relatives over Christmas and New Year. The cottage is beautiful and has everything you could possibly want. Sarah had put a large Christmas tree up and other decorations. Everyone who visited us at the cottage were equally impressed. I would have no hesitation in recommending River Cottage, it is fantastic!
Fantastic location ,well laid out rooms once we found them all!!!!!!!!!
Lots of bird life and nice to see the kingfishers
Close to amenities ,peaceful, relaxing and all our party enjoyed the stay
Our second stay here in this lovely cottage - hope to come back next year. Gorgeous living space and stunning location.
We have stayed in many holiday lets and some are good and others bad, but this one is exceptional in every way.
The location, village, decor, furnishings, and cleanliness.
It felt like we were staying in someone's home that they were very proud of.
As I left in the visitors book.
Lovely clean spacious accommodation!
The photographs on the website do not 'do it justice.' What a superb location in a small chocolate box village but with many facilities but just a short drive away. The owners were very attentive and knowledgeable about the locality which was very helpful.
All in all a lovely relaxing holiday by the river :-)
