“Perfect views but very noisy pub next door”
Reviewed 8 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Well presented, comfy, clean and with beautiful views.
Be advised though:
The pub next door was very busy, even out of season. Their back yard is only feet from the Boathouse. Regularly through the evening crates of empty bottles are brought out and emptied in wheelie bins with a tremendous crash. Staff use the yard for their breaks and are noisy. The back door is opened frequently by staff and always bangs shut. Customers at the outside tables were very noisy each night until very late (except when it rained!). Far too noisy to open a bedroom window at night for fresh air. Early each morning delivery vans arrive and, due to access difficulties all have to reverse along the front of the pub to the back yard with the inevitable 'beep, beep, beeps'.
Parking at this property is difficult. You will either have to reverse in or reverse out.
If you can live with these provisos the property itself is lovely and the views are stunning.

“Lovely views holiday spoiled by pub next door”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Lovely house with great views up the river. Sadly completely spoiled by the pub next door. Very noisy pub with live music and discos until gone 11pm most nights. Almost impossible for the family to sleep with the noise right outside both bedroom windows. Very difficult to park after 5pm as you can't get through the pub car park and if you do get parked you have to spend half the night stopping drunk people from leaning on your car. After the pub closes you then have an hour or so of drunk people standing right by the bedroom windows and all the noise that that brings. Then the morning spoiled by the worlds most unsimpathetic bar staff emptying bottles in the bins next to the bedroom waking everyone up again. Even ended up going to boots to buy ear plugs in an attempt to help the children get to sleep.Really really spolied our quiet break.
