“Stunning little cottage”
Reviewed December 20, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Stayed here while I visited my nan and WOW, what a stunning little cottage just like home from home. I loved the decor. You don't need anything apart from bed sheets and pillow cases, everything else is there for you. It was a very comfortable and relaxing home.

Just wished the parking was closer to the property so I could see my car. But It was fine where I left it in a long stay car park which was only £3 for 24hrs or £16 for a week, so not too bad really.

The owner is very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Bidford :)

“Great little find”
Reviewed December 13, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

cottage exactly as seen in photos, very clean throughout. The little homely touches were most welcomed, tea, coffee, etc and this time of year a log burning stove all ready to go. No outside parking but the river front is a minutes walk away with ample parking which is free on Sundays, so that was not a problem. All in all a great little place to stay while visiting family and I will be returning in 2017.

River View is a beautiful cottage with stunning views of the river and countryside beyond. Inside the cottage is immaculately clean and beautifully presented and decorated. We went with two children (aged 10 and 11) and our small Yorkshire terrier (after speaking to owner to take dog). The accommodation was perfect.
The only problem I can see for some people who have trouble with steps or hills this may not be for you? As there are 30 steps up from the road or quite steep hills in to town.
However we feel much fitter on return. Lots to do in the area within town or if you fancy a little drive some stunning local towns and villages. We will definitely be visiting again!

“A lovely home in a great location!”

The cottage is situated on a hill with a splendid view towards the river. It's only a few minutes walk from Bideford quay and the town centre so made it an ideal location for us. The cottage is in pristine condition and is clearly well looked after & loved and has a very homely atmosphere.

There's decking in the front garden and a bench allowing you to sit outside on sunnier days and enjoy the view with a cup of tea. For those cozy nights there's the wood burner in the dining room which is provided with fuel for burning.

We travelled to Devon by train and caught the bus from Barnstaple railway station to Bideford. Buses run up to every ten minutes between Barnstaple and Bideford and also serve the seaside towns of Westwood Ho!, Appledore, Croyde & Ilfracombe. This makes this cottage an ideal place for anyone without a car.

Overall this is one of the best places we have every stayed in and I really can't find any faults. We will definitely be staying again!
