We loved our stay at the Riverview cottage, the house was cosy with a log burner and aga oven and located in a beautiful little valley.
MR. BROWN October 2020
Riverview lived up to our expectations, it’s a lovely cottage, well equipped, very comfortable and ideally located for exploring Exmoor.
Miss Gentry September 2020
Very attractive small enclosed rear garden and separate front garden area ideal for sitting and enjoying the view across the valley in the afternoon.
Mr Warr September 2020
lovely relaxing holiday we will go again for sure.
Mrs Pocock August 2020
One of the best holiday cottages we have rented. Location is beautiful with wonderful views over the river and moors.
Mrs West July 2020
This is a lovely property, fitted out to a high spec and very well equipped. The cottage is in a great location with wonderful views and gives great access to the moors and country walks and is handily placed for the good local pub and well stocked shop.
Mrs Walton July 2020
Beautiful cottage, loved the beams, the pretty cottage garden and of course the views. Great choice of walks from the door which we enjoyed with our golden retriever Thyme. The warm welcome and the doggy treats provided were much appreciated. Riverview is a credit to Sheila. Thank you!

Miss Tilley November 2019
A stunning cottage in a beautiful location. Fabulous walks, delicious food and friendly service in the cafe, a stone's throw away, stunningly dark night skies...a joy! The perfect place to step away from life's frenetic pace.
Mrs Drinkwater October 2019
Very homely cottage that is well furnished and equipped. Beautiful views from the front of the cottage.
Mr Morris August 2019
Fantastic cottage, location, area. Nothing else to say at all other than we had a lovely 2 week stay.
Mrs Hemming April 2019
This is definitely one of the highlights of our Classic Cottage experiences. Riverview is a really beautiful cottage in a fantastic location. The walks from the cottage are breathtaking. All this we already knew as we stayed here in October of last year and we will definitely be back again. It is also wonderful for our dog - she loved her week here.

Mr Reed December 2018
Beautiful cottage, high standard of presentation, spotlessly clean and high spec. If your looking to be on your mobile all the time throughout your stay, this cottage is not for you, if your looking for a lovely cottage in a beautiful village with peace and quiet, lovely views, then Riverside is for you.
Mrs Hemming October 2018
This was a wonderful cottage, such an incredible high standard in everything and one we are already looking to book again!
Ms Vaughan September 2018
Perfect for couples .
Mr Clark August 2018
We had a great time at Riverview Cottage, beautiful countryside and walks close by. Decent local pub, and other eating and drinking options in the area. Just about everything you would want is available in the village. If you can't get it, you don't need it. Relax, have a drink, eat something local and watch the colours change in the valley as the sun, clouds and rain fight for dominance!
Miss Page June 2018
Our second stay in this relaxing cottage....all you could need and in a great location. Our dog loved the river......we had a fabulous week in gorgeous sunshine.
Mrs Buckingham June 2018
A beautifully presented and comfortable cottage in a lovely location.
Mrs Rees June 2018
My husband and I (together with our small dog) stayed at Riverview for a week in June. Riverview is probably the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. Stylish and very comfortable. The Everhot range made me want one! Withypool is delightful and has a well stocked shop, tea room and a pub.....what more could you want? It is a great centre to travel from, we went to various places on Exmoor and to the coast a couple of times. We enjoyed walks from the cottage (the one to Tarr Steps in the yellow booklet was excellent). We had amazing weather which always makes things special but I think we would have enjoyed the place just as much in poor weather, such was the comfort of Riverview.
Mr Jones May 2018
I did not expect such beautiful and uninterrupted views of the countryside across the river! Very close to village shop and super cafe (a couple of minutes walk) both with everything you need An exceptionally well prepared cottage, thank you.
Mrs Wheal May 2018
Lovely cosy cottage with views of the river and hills with sheep. We really enjoyed our relaxing baby moon!
Mr Prentice April 2018
This cottage is one of the best we have ever stayed in. It was very well presented , very well equipped and very comfortable. The owner even made a visit in person to check everything was OK - and it was! Withypool itself is a delightful little village and is a good centre to visit places in the area - too many to mention, but Dunster is great as are the Tarr Steps. No complaints and we had a good holiday .
Mrs Richards April 2018
A beautiful cottage, equipped with everything you will need for a extremely relaxing holiday. What a view out of the bedroom window, sat in bed with a cup of tea, I could’ve stayed there all day just sheep watching!
Perfect location for walking with a great tea-room to top up on those calories ??
We absolutely loved our stay in Riverview cottage, we will be back for sure, thank-you.
Dr Pemberton April 2018
Excellent location and standards of comfort.
Mrs Santos April 2018
Very cosy cottage with all the necessary and fireplace to relax after long walks in the moor. Splendid view and very well located to visit the area. Warm welcome from the owner and discretion during our stay. For sure, we recommend this place and we hope we will be back soon.
Mr Dempsey March 2018
Loved everything we will come again p.s would be very happy to live there forever please thank the owner
Mrs Chandler November 2017
We found Riverview extremely comfortable and cosy, even in the wind and rain of Exmoor in autumn. Our dog had to be dragged away from the rug in front of the woodburner! Well equipped with lovely quality bed linen and furnishings, some beautiful homely touches and a very kind and helpful owner who took the trouble to visit us on our day of arrival. Withypool is a small friendly village with a good shop, a pub that serves great food and an excellent tea room that was even open during November. A great base. Would certainly recommend.
Mrs Redgewell November 2017
We were delighted with our choice of property from the moment we arrived. Everything about it was beautiful and we immediately felt relaxed. Having such a lovely place to stay and in such a gorgeous location really made our holiday that bit more special.
Mr James October 2017
We had a lovely time at riverview. The cottage was wonderfully furnished and so well equipped and the village including the shop, pub and tea shop was fantastic. We have stayed in lots of great cottages in the national parks in England and this was the best.
We loved the walks on the door step and would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to stay in Exmoor.
Mr Miller October 2017
The cottage was beautiful, comfy and quiet in an ideal location with fantastic views and a local pub and tea room. Everything was to a very high standard and we had a lovely week. We plan to return again next year!
Mrs Dennison October 2017
Lovely cottage, beautiful position, superbly equipped. Would love to bring the Everhot range home! Village shop and Tea Shop both excellent. We had a lovely, lovely week and will return.
Mrs Perkins September 2017
Riverview is exceptionally well appointed and comfortable. It is located in a beautiful village with excellent shop, tearoom and pub and easy access to many walks around beautiful Exmoor.
Mrs Lewis September 2017
We would say book a holiday now, but don't want too many people to know.!!!
Miss Page September 2017
A lovely cottage that is relaxing and very comfortable to stay in.......the location is perfect for a peaceful break and the dog loved the river (seen from front of the cottage). A village shop and tea rooms in the village....both good. Good location to travel other sites (Tarr steps, dunster, Porlock and many more)

We could not have asked for better accommodation. Everything was first class and it made our stay comfortable and cosy.
Mrs Smith June 2017
The cottage is excellent with a lovely welcoming tea and cake after a long drive. We loved the local cafe and enjoyed a lovely cream tea! There are a number of circular walks from the cottage which are really lovely and the River Barle is just lovely. Overall a lovely holiday and the dog enjoyed it too!
