Absolutely wonderful. Our dogs had the best time, swam, ran an played freely to their hearts contents. It was such a lovely little cottage that everything we needed. The hist was very helpful and friendly. If I had to mention something to note, it would be to not have your doggies swim in the river, ours had bumps on their backs the next day. We rinsed one of the two after the river swim, but not both. Maybe just rinse them if they do jump in. Regardless of that, we'll keep going back. We've definitely found our new favourite spot.

Willow Cottage was an unexpected gem with built in creature comforts, (king size bed and a dishwasher) even our dogs didn't want to leave. We will definitely be back, want to try out the fireplace in Winter.

A small town with plenty of character. Absolutely loved how close the wine farms were, and the little stalls on the side of the road had lots to offer. Food at the Botriver Hotel was also great value for money, with super friendly staff!
