This is our second visit to Riverside Cottage. Simon and Donna are fabulous hosts and this time we enjoyed a superb Italian meal and wine pairing evening along with 10 other guests. Can't recommend them highly enough and we hope to return soon.

Their two dogs are absolutely lovely as well as all the other animals they keep on the land. Donna is also an exceptional baker! The room we stayed in faced onto the river and our balcony view was...

Enjoyed 4 nights at this wonderful guest house run by Simon & Donna. It wasn't like staying in a guest house, but more like visiting their home, they made us so welcome & were so friendly. From the informative email we received from them prior to our arrival to the spectacular views over the river & everything else in between...

A lovely quirky and beautifully decorated home and the balcony room was wonderful and plush. Donna and Simon were so friendly. Fab views whilst enjoying our great breakfast - unfortunately we didn't have time to sample the tea room - one for our next visit! Well worth a stay and we hope to be back. Thank you both.

Donna and Simon were perfect hosts. Apartment very clean and had everything we needed. Afternoon tea was amazing as was the breakfast. Donna is an amazing cook. Both have great local knowledge and put themselves out to ensure our stay was pleasant. Would definitely recommend and will be returning again.

David thanks for the lovely review and so lovely to see you both again. I can only apologise about the snoring and as there was no one else in the B&B when you both stayed I can only assume it was Simon or one of the dogs; because as you know women just don't snore!!!
