comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

A nice centrally located cottage which has everything you need for a short stay. Parking a bit hit and miss, we didn't move the car for the whole week as everything within walking distance and good public transport. Dog friendly and there are plenty of nice walks along the riverside. Would recommend and hope to revisit in the future.
