Speech marksStayed May 5th for seven nights in Riverbank Cottage. Firstly the kitchen, excellent, well equipped and a very nice size. Snug living room and took advantage of the logs fire. The bed was perhaps the most comfy ever and nice to have a selection of pillows. I was lucky with the weather, always a gamble but the location is spot on for walks straight from the door.Speech marksPosted by: Sue Smith, Cambridge May 2016

The Owners Opinion......

A perfect couples' retreat with stunning river views. Being on ground level Riverbank is also our most suitable property for less mobile guests.
