River Run Self-Catering Cottage

Privacy, peace and solitude

This 94sqm cabin has recently been converted into a country chic cottage suitable for couples and families wanting a quiet getaway with only the sounds of the river flowing past. It is situated a kilometre from Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse – near to Richard and Mouse’s house.

Having its own private access allows guests to enjoy privacy, peace and solitude. The views are spectacular, looking directly onto the river with the soaring mountain rising above. It is surrounded by the World Heritage Site – the Highmoor section of the Giant’s Castle Nature Reserve.

Please note that this unit and is totally separate from the hotel and its facilities. Guests are responsible for their own catering although they are welcome to book for meals at the hotel should there be space (no children at the Farmhouse under 12).
