Cottage is lovely, location is perfect and neighbours are friendly. Little gifts of milk cookies and bathroom treats were left and much appreciated Only problem was finding the note saying dogs were not allowed upstairs, if I had known that I wouldnt have booked Robbers Cottage, it should have been on the website. I hated having to lock my dogs doRead morewnstairs when I went to bed. My 7 day holiday away with my dogs ended up being a 4 day holiday. I packed the dogs beds and we went home early Hide

A lovely comfortable cottage in a great spot. Very comfy bed and wonderful pillows. It was great seeing the herons and buzzards flying along the river. There are two great walks from the house and plenty of good places to visit. Louise is very friendly and left us some nice treats.

Lovely remote cottage. Great enclosed garden for the dogs although it is on a slope which our old dog struggled with at times. Lovely picnic table ideally situated for all day sunshine. Lovely gift of bottle of wine, cookies and milk. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A delightful cottage with views over the river. Good sized rooms with comfortable furniture and a variety of useful kitchen equipment being provided. The stairs were rather steep for us oldies. But after a couple of days we had them sorted. The garden is ideal for a dog to play in with a seating area that is a real sun trap - lovely for a sundownerRead more! Hide

We were really happy with Robbers Cottage. It met our expectations and had everything we needed for our stay. The location is wonderful and it's very peaceful (except for the noise of the birds). We'd stay again.

A lovely cottage with everything you could think of supplied. We hesitated booking when we saw that dogs were allowed as we arent dog owners but there was no evidence of a dog ever being in the cottage. It was clean and comfortable and very cosy.

A wonderfully warm and comfortable get-away-from-it-all cottage in stunning scenery.
