Accommodation to suit your needs...
The Riverside is a charming, whitewashed cottage style property (set in two buildings). The delightful rooms provide a level of comfort well above that normally associated with holiday accommodation.
The sitting room (which has an open fire), has large cottage windows that look over our terrace to the village beyond; and is a good base to relax, watch the television or a DVD, do a jigsaw or play one of our board games, whatever.
The kitchen and dining room combine as one glorious room. The kitchen is well equipped with an Aga and an electric cooker. There are 2 large fridges, a freezer and a dishwasher. The dining area has a fantastic oak table which will seat 12 comfortably (and 16 when fully extended).
If you are still in standby “work mode” there is also a phone (with an honesty box) and wifi. On a practical note, the house has a separate laundry room with a washing machine and a drier for your use.
“The Riverside is a very welcoming house. When you arrive you will find your beds made up with freshly laundered sheets and white towels in the bathrooms. Plus a welcome Pack and flowers on the dining table.”
The Riverside is set within pretty terraced gardens, and the front terrace, with its fabulous, 14-foot table (made of reclaimed wood from the old wooden roads in Bali) is the perfect spot from which to watch the world go by.
Alternatively, you can utilise the secluded garden area above the buildings, which catches the sun from early morning until late in the day. If you can tear yourself away, have a look in our Guest Information folder for ideas of “things to do” i.e. beaches, golfing, sailing, fishing, diving, walking. So many options!
