We spent a very pleasant couple of nights at River Cottage. Although the owners were away we were very well looked after. The room could have been larger but had an excellent ensuite and the little extras of 'special' toiletries and fresh milk were appreciated. Our one disappointment was the TV which was very small and located high in a corner which made it difficult to see. The cottage had a range of information leaflets and walks booklets which we took advantage of. The breakfast was first class with quality ingredients and home made preserves - slight niggle that we could not have white toast or Weetabix - but otherwise excellent. The B and B is situated on a main trunk road but this was not particularly noticable. It boasts a delightful riverside garden.
Considering the size of the room we felt that it was overpriced compared with similar establishments. If staying here you must try the White Lion at Great Longstone - much better than the recommended pubs in Ashford.
