Quaint old house near the river”

Pleasant garden surroundings to relax in. Opposite the river and the walkways. Within walking distance of the town centre, restuarants, galleries and shops.

An enjoyable stay although the fan in the bathroom seemed to have a mind of its own and would stay on well after the light was turned off! The communal kitchen was fairly busy but nice lounges to retire to.
