10th comment: River cottage was wonderful - it had everything needed and more from a coffee machine, stoppers for the wine bottle and even a fishing rod! The location was perfect for taking a coffee up to watch the boats go through the canal and then sitting in complete privacy at the side of the river. The best cottage we’ve ever stayed in! May 2010.
