Due to Rivertrees growth in stages, each cottage was designed with individual thought and care, and furnished with unique attention. The inn’s design makes the most of the riverine nooks and bends, and clearings in leafy groves, to grant each dwelling its own sense of privacy and peace.The restaurant makes for a relaxing setting for a book and a coffee, or a garden-fresh meal in the sunshine. Winding pathways weave a lazy loop through the spacious grounds, and reveal a sparkling swimming pool and a massage hut for those that enjoy surrendering to relaxation.
