We have just returned after spending 3 nights at The Riverside Hotel.
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. Brenda & Dave greeted us warmly & gave us a brief description of the house & immediate area. Dave's detailed knowledge of the area enabled us to make the most of our time there. All his suggestions of walks to enjoy & good quality places to eat were spot on.
The house has a very relaxing ambiance & is beautifully furnished .... perfect for 2 townies to unwind!
The breakfasts were beautifully cooked & we were treated each day to Brenda's homemade bread, a different recipe each day, which was delicious!
The bed was so comfortable we both slept very well & through the open window all we could hear was the gentle sound of the river.
There were lots of other thoughtful touches ... umbrellas & torches to borrow, a daily hour by hour weather report on the breakfast table & lanterns on each step & up the path to guide you in at night.
We will definitely return ... thank you Brenda & Dave. x
