About Us

 
As a Husband and Wife team (with the enthusiastic, albeit somewhat questionable, help of our young sons!) River View Guest house is a true labour of love for our family.
 
In 2017 We fell in love with this lovely house on the river at first sight and were delighted to be able to buy it in 2018, instantly knowing this grand old lady of 1810 just needed a bit of love and attention to bring her back to her brilliant best. I gave up my full-time job to run River View while Graeme has (for now at least!) retained his.
 
While updating the house we have approached the rooms with a desire to provide neutral, fresh and cosy surroundings while retaining as much of the building’s character as possible. The interiors have been carefully chosen to reflect our design style & aesthetics, in the hope we can offer our guests a quirky alternative to chain hotels. We know the floors are wonky and the walls arent straight but we have embraced and
worked with that, and we think the results are far more endearing.
 

Along with all the work indoors, Graeme has redesigned and landscaped the front garden for our guests to be welcomed by and, as a riot of colour in the summer, enjoy during their stay. Similar work still continues in the back garden with many more beautiful plans for the house, home and garden as the year goes on.
