Louise and Peter made us feel so welcome in their beautiful home. We were away on business and Riversleigh lodge was the best we've found on Airbnb.

We really liked our stay at Louise's place. Everything is like on the pictures and the description. It was a lovely spacious studio, with a big terrace above the river. The house is easy to reach. We enjoyed a good, generous breakfast, the hugs of 4 big, but very friendly and quiet dogs and our time walking the surroundings along the river to the next village and up the hill. Salisbury is also close by, by car. The house is interesting, bright and open with lots of light and a warm comforting atmosphere. Louise and her husband are friendly and well-traveled hosts open to strangers. We sure would like to stay again if we ever come back to the neighbourhood :-)

Vocês foram anfitriões impecáveis! Atenção em todos os momentos, me senti em casa. O local da casa é lindo, as redondezas são imperdíveis em cada caminho é uma nova surpresa, você pode encontrar uma casa antiga rodeada de um lindo jardim , passar por uma pequena ponte sobre um rio de águas limpas, cruzar uma porteira e andar no meio de lindo campo com carneiros. Passeio na companhia de vocês com os adoráveis Golden Retrievers , foi inesquecível! Queria agradecer o carinho de me levarem para visitar um dos mais lindos jardins na região. Pretendo retornar! Muito obrigada!

Peter and I are in our 70's and love living in a village community in our beautiful countryside. We have travelled extensively in the past. Peter was a farmer and I worked as a photographer and RGN. We have bred and shown our golden retrievers for many years and have enjoyed using them in nursing homes where they give so much pleasure. We designed our house, with an amazing architect, 5 years ago. It took us 4 years to complete, living in a caravan for a while. We love it and hope you will enjoy staying here with us.
