Relaxing views from the deck with lots of bird life. Belinda and Dean, our hosts, were very accommodating and warm. Loved the cottages and would have liked to stay a second night. Enjoyed the atmosphere in the pub and dining room.

We had originally planned a weekend away for the two of us - time to relax and re-charge our batteries.

We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived, brilliant hospitality! Our room was well kept and the views from it were serene. We loved falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the running water from the river. Perfect for a week or weekend away, you wouldn't even need to leave the property if you never wanted to.

On arrival we were greeted by our friendly hosts who immediately made us feel at home. The scenery was magical, with a flowing river following below our chalet. The bird life was something to appreciate. In summary, excellent hospitality, food and service. Looking to forward to our next visit.

Lovely location on the Lions River. Our hosts were so friendly and welcoming - they checked on us frequently during our dinner and breakfast to ensure that we were happy with our meals. They even provided gluten-free options for my daughter. A most restful stay!
