Private entrance, patio area, sun deck and garden. WiFi, DVD and Blue tooth speaker. Flat screen television, with Freesat channels. Off road parking You can relax in the garden or take a stroll on the river bank. Perhaps you would like to enjoy breakfast on the balcony? Watching the river flow past (it's very addictive). The village is a short walk away (200m) across the bridge, and offers a baker, a bar/restaurant, a small shop stocking most essentials, a butchers and a chemist (although we hope you won't need one) The wildlife in the area is stunning with Kingfishers and Dippers on the river and Buzzards and Eagles in the skies. If you are here at the right times you can see the migration of the European cranes. There are owls in the woods at the back of the house as well as nightingales. The Office de Tourism requires that we collect a Tax per Adult per night. This will be collected in cash on your arrival. .More
