My family and I, a party of nine, had the best time here. If you want to get away from the city and just relax this place is a great option. The Cottage is warm and homely and is well equipped throughout. The walks around the area are pleasant with view's that are both interesting and breath taking. The sheep, hehee :D they looked just as curious about us as we were of them! We found the history booklet of the place a great read and informative. Communication to sort our stay was clear and hassle free - "Thank you JA". Fans of Riverstone Cottage right here. Highly recommend it. We'd love to go back :)
