Holiday cottages on the riverbank

Idyllic views, tranquil surroundings and an abundance of wildlife

Give us a good river and we become a bit like Mole in the ‘Wind of the Willows’:

“The Mole was bewitched, entranced, fascinated. By the side of the river he trotted as one trots, when very small, by the side of a man who holds one spellbound by exciting stories; and when tired at last, he sat on the bank, while the river still chattered on to him, a babbling procession of the best stories in the world, sent from the heart of the earth to be told at last to the insatiable sea.”

There’s something mesmerising about the life that springs up around a river, its gentle babble and flow, and these holiday homes and cottages offer you the opportunity to get closely acquainted with some of the most picturesque rivers in northern England and southern Scotland.
