CoolStays user: Olivia Flinter
"What a fantastic place to stay. I had arranged to visit Riverain for my boyfriends birthday, meeting up with family as a surprise. We couldn't have asked for a better place to meet. The cottage itself is stunning and the service really was 5 star. The welcome pack was yummy especially the home made raspberry jam :-) We would definitely visit again and have already recommended it to a number of family and friends."
