    Great view of the river, spacious space, easy safe parking, and beautiful garden. Great stay. Only thing I would change is how long I was there. Only had 1 night. Would definitely stay again.

    We loved that the property was separate from the main house and that it had all the amenities we needed. The bed was extremely comfortable and the kitchen had everything to be self sufficient. It was very clean and tidy.
