    “The Boat House is situated in a unique location and we thoroughly enjoyed the day to day rhythm of staying on a tidal river.”


    The house itself was very comfortable and the wi-fi better than we expected. Our hosts were really helpful sharing their local knowledge of local walks and activities as well as providing some extra dog proof security so that we could enjoy sitting on the patio with the dogs. We couldn't have asked for more. In addition to making us very welcome, we felt very comfortable with their Covid-19 procedures and were able to thoroughly relax. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we have already booked our return visit next year. Thanks for a very relaxing and unique holiday.
