Luxury 5 Star River Cottage offers excellent holiday accommodation to a particularly high standard and is ideal for families and couples alike. The master bedroom houses a 4 poster bed, en-suite bathroom and views over the garden and river, whilst the lounge hosts a woodburning stove - a must for those cooler evenings! FREE
