  • Hello, How far from the motorway are you located? Chains required?
    Hi there. We're a 10min drive from the motorway. Normally the road is very good prepared, but sometimes in winter chains are required if you don't have a 4x4. At the moment it's not covered with snow. Best regards, The River House staff
