    “Charming property , good location , comfortable and clean .”

    In need of a little updating re furnishings and bed linen . We enjoyed our stay very much and felt very comfortable and noise from the road was minimal and not a problem for us . Good to have an allocated parking area and outside space . Ideal for walking into Woodbridge and along the Riverbank .
