We were five of us and stayed at the mud cottage. The cottage was very spacious with 2 bathrooms and sufficient for us. The location is amazing beside the river. The morning walk and dip in the river were highlights. If you are interested in birding, take your binoculars and go for early morning walk. Even sitting on the seating...
