Riverside House is a fantastic holiday cottage with wonderful accommodation and a great setting. I travel extensively and I can say without a shadow of doubt that Riverside House is as good, if not better than any other holiday accommodation I’ve ever stayed in. Every consideration and detail has been thought of both inside and outside with very little expense spared on fixtures and fittings. The kitchen is wonderfully well equipped, the lounge / dining area is extremely comfortable and the bedrooms are a good size with comfy beds. Both bathrooms are new and add a touch of luxury. We particularly enjoyed the tri-fold windows from the lounge to the outside seating area. The added bonus of a summerhouse overlooking the river in an additional area of garden is a lovely place to watch the sun set. We stayed immediately after lock down relaxed and safety / hygiene is well catered for. The place was spotless! We also travelled in our mid-life crisis car, aka a 2 seater convertible, and found the electric garage door and space for the car was terrific. We used the kayaks a few times and the barbecue extensively. Would we return? - definitely and we may even bring the kids with us next time. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us.

Mr Roger W,

Riverside house is a lovely property, a real home from home for a holiday. We relaxed from the moment we walked through the door and the summerhouse overlooking the estuary was a real bonus.

Mr Nigel B,

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your beautiful for our honeymoon. We enjoyed some lovely days out at Paignton, Torquay, Blackpool Sands, Dartmouth and the Woodlands theme park. On good weather days it has been lovely sitting on the balcony with views of the fields and estuary, even Isabelle has had a wonderful time! We've loved every minute and hope to visit again in the future.

Jamie and L,

Lovely property, very clean did not want for anything, and a lovely view,

Mrs Pat H,

This Cottage was amazing, right on the creek with everything you could possibly want including a pool table in the double garage, 3 canoes, which the kids played on when the tide was in and they loved the mud when the tide was out. We were lucky with the weather so had bbq's and sunbathed on the lovely patio. If I had to make one comment and certainly NOT a criticism is the kitchen is so well stocked that when we had out Tescos order delivered (would recommend this) there are no empty cupboards to put anything like food. I would definitely recommend this cottage, we had a brilliant week and hope to return next year.

Mrs Sarah H,

Mrs Tracy R,

Thank you for a fabulous stay in your house. The house is beautiful, we will miss waking up to the view of the estuary and the fields beyond. The weather has been very kind to us and we have been able to make use of all the outdoor games + kayaks. We have stayed in many places around the world but never in one with so much love and thought put into it. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you

Previous Customer,

What a special place and house, it has everything we need (never been anywhere that provided magnifying make up mirrors!) Because the weather was so hot we've spent a lot of time outside and not even sat in the snug (shame). We will definitely be back. Many thanks

We all thought the beds were so comfortable and the kayaks were well used. Will definitely return here again as we loved the area too. Fabulous
