"A delightful little cottage!" Thank you Sue, Henry & Maddie, we absolutely loved everything about this little cottage. So comfy & cozy and so very clean. You welcomed us with warmth and friendliness, making us feel right at home. Feeding the Butcher birds everyday was amazing, a real highlight of our holiday! Thank you so much for having us all stay in your beautiful cottage. We would love to come back. Warmest regards, Theo, Neree & all the fur babies5/5 by ,
"Great cottage!! Very clean,comfortable & quiet. A credit to Sue & Henry." Thank you Sue & Henry for allowing us into your lovely "River Cottage". What a wonderful experience to find everything we could possibly need for a quiet, relaxing-albeit much too short-3 day break. The amenities are first rate & the bed was oh so comfy! We enjoyed the friendliness of the butcher bird & the proximity to Sandy Park is perfect for a walk on the beach or a spot of fishing!! We will recommend your establishment to all & sundry. We look forward to a return visit!! Regards, Mary & Daryle.5/5 by ,
"A great little cottage" We stayed there for 24 days and thoroughly enjoyed the location, all the household items to make a stay comfortable. Before our arrival we were advised that the mother is in a small cottage out the back and we were little bit apprehensive, as it turned out this was not an issue and the mother, Maddy, was a delightful, bright and friendly person who kept a low-profile and we enjoyed a chat every couple of days. Cottage was clean, neat and orderly and had everything we needed.5/5 by ,
"Couldn't have asked for more!" My partner and I spent five days staying at River Cottage whilst my partner attended a Golf School at Sanctuary Cove nearby. The spotlessly clean cottage had everything we needed to make it feel like home, a perfect place to relax on the patio with a glass of wine after a hard day's golf. The previous reviews say it all, we had a wonderful stay, thank you so much Sue and Henri.5/5 by ,
