Great welcome from owners, great location, really enjoyed the cottage and surrounding areas great for kids would return for sure.
Great remote location, beautiful nature and lovely cottages
Great place to spend time with friends and family. Beautiful nature and lovely hosts. We would love to come back to this haven of peace away from busy city life.
Site working team accomodation
We had a team of 6 lads working in the area for a week and found Rivermead cottage to be an ideal location and size to accommodate them. Unfortunately they were not able to pick up wifi in the cottage they were staying in but otherwise all was good.
Relaxing family stay - with a few pleasant surprises
We stayed for a week at Rivermead cottage which was spacious and well equipped. The property is beautifully situated for touring Cornwall and was not too far from destinations on both coasts. The hosts were friendly and helpful and wed were treated to a lovely welcome pack containing a few essentials - eggs, butter, milk etc and ingredients for an arrival cream tea.
We knew the grounds were extensive and offered fishing walks. But the garden games were a welcome treat for our teenage lads and the fire pit was well used by us for bbqs and toasting marshmallows.
Stunning location. Well-furnished, cosy cottage.
The cottage was well-furnished, perfectly clean and tidy and comfortable for the 4 of us. The setting is stunning with river walks and gardens being a real treat, with sightings of otter, heron, kingfishers being highlights. Fishing in July was very much on the light side in the river.
In terms of value, for the price I would expect a bit more privacy to the cottage setting within the grounds. In terms of being fitted out, the cottage had everything you could want, and in some ways too much - we could have done with more cupboard space for food and I think a larger fridge would suit bookings larger than our family of 4.
All in all, a fabulous week in Cornwall and the location makes wonderful access to both north and south Cornwall if desired.
Great holiday and property, only downside was that building works going on when we were not advised,
The cottage itself is wonderful and the welcome pack on arrival much appreciated, we spoke mainly to Kevin and only saw Marjorie the once.
The complex (for want of a better word) didn't appear to be quite ready, things like the gas bbq being on a building plot (there was 2 new huge cabins being installed, one no more than 15 metres from our cottage) and not working although I did try and help Kevin with it.
Going back to the building work, had we been informed of it going on (it was major on the Monday and Tuesday with our car being blocked on the way in Monday and blocked on the way out Tuesday for hours) we would have chosen a different date even if we had been offered a reduction which we weren't.
The works continued for the rest of our stay and instead of waking up to birds singing it was to a Kubota digger driving past our cottage which tore up the path to the river, this Kubota digger also being the view outside our cottage for a few days.
I did fish the river and am an experienced angler with no joy but maybe the river was low so I'm not sure why I didn't spot one fish but did have 2 or 3 bites.
The little golf course is fun, putting is impossible though as the grass was so long on the green, I think it had been too wet to cut maybe.
The grounds itself are exclusive and you don't meet many people while there although with 2 new additional cabins being installed this will be busier for sure.
Overall a good holiday that was impaired by the building work made worse by not being informed of until we arrived on the Saturday.
On another note if 8 are staying at the Cottage then you will have to bring in chairs from the kitchen to the living room as there are only 6 seats, the wife also said it needs a bigger fridge.
We take the enjoyment and satisfaction of our guests very seriously and are extremely disappointed that we have not met your expectations. We have taken onboard your comments but are surprised that you did not speak to us during your stay about the issues mentioned in your review. Hoping you had a safe journey home and enjoy the fishing season.
