The location next to the river is excellent. I saw a kingfisher and a seal during this first week in December. The views and sunrises on frosty mornings were also a treat for the soul. However, people should be aware that there are no local facilities, no pub, no shop and quite a drive to the nearest of both. This does not matter to us because we use the cottage as a base when spending time with family but it might be important to those wishing to spend a summer holiday here.

Perfect place to relax in evenings sitting watching all the activity on the river was brilliant peaceful having no shops or pubs in the village added to its charm

Although the decor for the guest en-suite and hall cloakroom were tired the master en-suite and all other rooms were very good. However, on the whole it was good value for money. There is no facilities whatsoever in the village, no pub or small shop so even the simplest of things required a decent journey of circa 10 miles. We did take a dinghy too and was told a slipway was available for our use, and although this was available it proved to be misguided. The slipway is narrow and unless you are prepared to wade in wetsuits through mud can only be of use in the 2 hours at high tide, whilst thick wooden groynes risked damage to the boat. A little disappointing we didn't sail but not something a non-sailor would know.

Thanks for taking the time to review Riverside Cottage - we're very pleased that you found it good value for money. It is a very rural area, the nearest pub is at Botus Fleming about 3m away, with a little shop at Hatt 3.5m or Waitrose at Carkeel Roundabout for a bigger shop. We've suggested that the slipway is suited for kayaks or canoes, but for there are other slipways and moorings generally available to the public along this area of the Tamar, subject to the tides.

Riverside cottage is certainly one of the most peaceful, tranquil locations we have ever stayed. Although the narrow, country lanes took some getting used to ( not helped by the navigation from our Sat Nav!) we found it the perfect location for visiting all the towns and places of interest nearby. It was also a treat and great fun, to relive our childhood and cast our crabbing lines, just off our terrace - Crabs a plenty! We were also delighted to spot a seal swimming close by too! A Beautiful cottage. Immaculately kept and very cosy. It is equipt with everything you might need for a self catering holiday. We will certainly return again! Thank you

Riverside Cottage is simply the best holiday cottage I have ever stayed at. It is beautifully furnished & has everything you could possibly need to make a holiday comfortable. The views are gorgeous & it is in close proximity to many attractions. Highly recommended.

Wonderful location, would definitely go again, felt really at home there, I would imagine when really hot weather it would be lovely on the patio. So enjoyable watching the tide going in and out and noting the difference it all makes.

Another very enjoyable Christmas spent at Riverside.
Ms Boyle September 2015
This is one of the best holiday cottages I have ever rented. The location was simply stunning and everything was clean and comfortable. It was actually a struggle to leave it every day and go touring as it was simply a delightful place to be!
Mr Hartmann August 2015
We had a wonderful stay at Riverside Cottage, but too little time to visit all the attractions nearby - like Bodmin Moor, Dartmoor and coastal paths. The location ist great with a sublime scenery.

Dr Burt June 2015
Torn between telling everyone we know about this cottage and keeping it as a secret. We will certainly return.
Mrs Addy April 2015
Unrivalled value for money. It is clear the owners concern for comfort and cleanliness is their paramount concern.
Mr Drennan December 2014
Superb location for our Christmas break. Peaceful village with stunning scenery to wake up to every morning. Very tempted to go back in the summer to make use of the terrace, fishing and barbecue. Extremely well equipped and easy to make yourself comfortable. Great communication from company and owner to make whole experience very pleasant.
Mr Edwards September 2014

Mrs Whyley August 2014
A beautifully relaxing spot, very chilled and glorious views.
Mr Neudeck August 2014
The location and cottage are so beatiful. It is so peaceful there are no noises from traffic or people, only the lapping of waves. we took a few kayak's and had a paddle up and down the river its very nice. or if you like fishing take your rods as you can catch a few bits of the patio!
