The location The facilities (dishwasher, washing machine,microwave and an excellent welcome pack) Very pet friendly The enclosed front garden ( our dog to lay outside safely) Nice riverside walks The Red Kite experience just up the road. The sky was full of these lovely birds at feeding time there were literally hundreds and hundreds of them swirling in the air, to think that there was only one breeding pair 25 years ago. Well worth the visit and the best value for money that we have had for years.
