The River House is an outstanding venue in every way possible. This weekend has given us the annual opportunity to unwind, revive, laugh & leave the normal behind. The River House is exceptional and has made our 14th weekend away together decadently relaxing.

Absolutely  loved our stay! Such an amazing location & wonderful place. We can't wait to stay here again. So nice to be able to stroll down to the river, street & golf course.

The River House itself is truly stunning & it was great to be able to pick things out of the garden for meals. Such an unique experience. Well done!
