“As we hadn’t seen any photos of the inside of the house, we didn’t know what to expect – and we were very pleased and impressed – in fact we went back outside to check the sign as we thought we were in the wrong house! The best holiday house we have stayed in, and we’ve stayed in many over the last 20 years! The house is lovely and the position overlooking the river – wonderful!” Mrs R, Cambridge (2008)
