One of the best self catering units, the family really enjoyed themselves. The host were awesome and accommodating. The fishing was great. I would highly recommend this accommodation for any family. Thank you for the great hospitality.

The "Place on the River" is lovely self catering accommodation. Clean,spacious and secure. Close to the river and sea and walking distance to several restaurants. The Colemans were perfect hosts, welcoming us and making us feel right at home. The accommodation is modern and has a lovely fresh and homely feel. We had a lovely time, there is an abundance of bird life too. The area is quiet and peaceful, perfect for a relaxing get away.

One of the best holidays I have experienced. I will recommend PLACE ON THE RIVER to everyone I know. The hosts feally made us feel at home and we all enjoyed the time staying there - we also appreciate their kindness and hospitality. My wife and children can't stop talking about it, and want me to book again later in the year.
