Reviews

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,

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,

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!
