The spot is gorgeous too, I hope to return when I can more appreciate the gorgeous gardens. It was the perfect place to get ready for a Coatesville/Riverhead wedding and we got some great before snaps in the garden too.

Gorgeous property for a weekend away. Every little detail has been thought of. The view is stunning and the property feels very private. We will certainly be heading back for another weekend! Would highly recommend the breakfast, it is delicious!

Owner's Response: Thank you . Your positive feedback is so important to me. I try to envisage the details I would like to have if I stayed somewhere, so it's good to know that I seem to have nailed it ! DO come again as those kayaks need a workout !

A great location, just on the edge of the river with breathtaking views, a very special place.

  • 5 of 5

A great location, just on the edge of the river with breathtaking views, a very special place. The cottage had all the necessities and was extremely clean and tidy. There is lots to do there, be it canoeing on the river or just lazing back with a book and glancing at the passing rowers. Mel was a helpful and kind host with a great sense of humour. She responded promptly to all requests both online and in person. Highly recommended

The view of the morning mist across the river was beautiful. We enjoyed the very comfortable bed and lovely bedlinen, and made the most of the nicely equipped kitchenette. A most peaceful and pleasant stay.
