Property's Favourite Review
we had a wonderful two days in this wonderful place. Evening meal on the terrace watching the sunset over the river with the geese strolling in was superb and so tranquil after a difficult drive up. Jean and her team have thought of everything and nothing was missing. The large dining room table also enabled conversation between guests. Walks in the area include one along the river .

Me and my daughter stayed for 2 nights and we will be returning! This place is wonderful. Hosts Jean and John are very friendly and their dogs are sociable! The Buttery is an ideal bolt hole for self catering, with all mod cons provided; including free range eggs and bread! The views are stunning! Thank you for making us feel so welcome.

My first (socially distanced) fishing trip of 2021 as we start to exit lockdown. Had a very enjoyable four nights with Jean and John who looked after me with their customary hospitality and good food. A very warm welcome as always. Hoping to return in June for more of the same.
