Had a wonderful week in your lovely home. One of the best properties we have stayed in over thirty years! Very comfortable, beautiful view. We have been so lucky with the weather for October and have been able to sit outside everyday. Enjoyed trips to Paignton Zoo, Dartmouth, Salcombe, Babbacombe, Totnes and Buckfast Abbey. Enjoyed ice cream at Torcross. Good food at The Globe across the road, village bakery and Queens Arms, Slaption. This was our second attempt to visit Riverside, the first was cancelled at the start of the pandemic. So glad we got here eventually! Thank you.

Courtney Family,

What an amazing house! Love, love, loved it! We brought our own kayaks & gear and enjoyed the ease of just walking them out of the garage and down the short slope to the water. We went for a paddle almost everyday. We had sunshine pretty much all week so also enjoyed the deck, but also spent our afternoon reading in the summer house away from the rest of the world. Everything is so comfy - the snug carpet for my pilates mat, beds & settees all lovely - and well thought out with sockets all over the place. The new cafe by the bridge is great for coffees and their quiches for lunchtime were superb. Best day out definitely Holne Woods, with a walk & picnic by the river watching the locals swim. The house is spotlessly clean too, quite a feat with so much to dust. Thank you for your hospitality.

Beth and M,

Wow! Thank you very much for a fantastic stay at your gorgeous house. The house is so well equipped with everything you need and more. We have used the kayaks, we feel very lucky to have them to use. We have visited lots of lovely places, such as Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Dartmouth, Blackpool Sands beach which is gorgeous. The information manual was very useful. We really hope we can come back again. Thank you.

Previous Customer,

We had a lovely stay in your beautiful house in a fabulous setting. We loved kayaking along the local creek. Also we had an amazing sightings of Jupiter, Saturn and the moon with the astronomical telescope. We also had lovely walks round Beesands, Torcross and Blackpool Sands. Thank you!

Verduyn Family,

This property exceeded our expectations. It was beautiful and kept to a very high standard. Fully equipped with lovely comfortable beds, great views. I would highly recommend booking!

Mrs R,

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,
