    Nice cottage. The owner does require a security deposit. The deposit was returned straight after our visit. Lovely river location.

    We enjoyed our stay at Riverbank Cottage however several issues prevented us from giving it a higher score. First and foremost the beds were very uncomfortable and the double bed was very creaky. Secondly, the pictures on the website belie the overlooked aspect at the front and side of the property. Thirdly, the parking at the cottage is in our view, impossible to access - we did however appreciate the ability to park 3 minutes away at the owners house. Finally, we thought a TV in the upstairs lounge would have been a good addition as there was not enough seating downstairs for the 8 people it is advertised to host. Nevertheless, the upstairs lounge was very comfortable and the garden and patio were lovely (particularly the views of the church). The dog walking was excellent and the forethought of a dogs bed/bowls etc was appreciated.

    We enjoyed our week at the cottage. The location was good,giving easy access to shops,and good access to other roads and motorways. Our only criticism was that the beds were well past their prime.

    A beautiful location overlooking the canal and the house was clean and well equipped, however there are issues with the access to this property. The lane up to the house is extremely narrow with little to no room to turn and exit. Also the neighbors park right up to the entrance so is made even more difficult to access the property. We were told there is space to park on the street, but this is hard to find.

    We have family who live nearby, so we thought that this would be a regular visit. The driveway was extremely narrow, exacerbated by neighbours who park right up to the entrance to the drive. The ONLY way the drive can be entered is by swinging on to the opposite pavement. This is a problem at this property. The house was clean and well furnished, but the oven had one door missing the the second oven was very dirty. The bbq which was mentioned in the description was in a filthy condition. When relaxing in the first floor lounge most of this could be forgiven on account of the peace and tranquility of the setting.
