“Absolutely fantastic”
Reviewed December 28, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Stayed here as a family of four during the Christmas period. Over the years in the UK we have rented a lot of properties of all shapes and sizes and this one is my favourite to date.The land lord was a delight to deal with and the property is just beautiful. It is such a well thought out, good quality pretty property, ideal location and had everything you could need kitchen wise. The beds are unbelievabley comfortable and it was a very peaceful environment both during the day and at night, but still really close to all the amenities of Bideford. Loved the views over the river too. I should mention that the whole house was absolutely spotlessly clean too. We will definitely be returning every time we are back visiting the area.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed October 29, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

River View was perfect for our half term trip to Bideford with 2 children under 6 to visit family, the location was excellent for the town and the views were beautiful. The cottage was exactly as seen in the photos, very clean and full of all the essentials you might need for your holiday. On arrival it was easy to find and very welcoming, we will most certainly be back! For anyone visiting the area with young children, The Big Sheep was a great day out!

“Absolutely Perfect!”
Reviewed September 27, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

What a lovely little cottage! Very home from home, every little detail is very well thought out. Exceptionally clean , cosy and well equipped for little ones. Great views over the river. And very central in bideford.
From the tea and coffee in the kitchen to the selection of DVDs and board games in the living room - everything was just perfect. Since the photos here on trip advisor the two bedrooms have been decorated beautifully.
Peter the owner was very helpful indeed.
You cannot get the car directly outside the house, however there is a nearby longstay car park and short stay parking on the road - 2 minute walk.
We defiantly will be coming back. Really do recommend this house to young families, older couples , and everyone else!

“Wonderful Cottage with lovely view of River.”
Reviewed September 13, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Cannot fault the Cottage, it's immaculately clean and has a wonderful view from the front looking over the river, weather could be kinder but we have managed to get out and about between the showers. Instow beach is great if you have a dog & only a 10 min drive. Lots of places to visit within a short drive, we have been to Clovelly, Ilfralcombe, Barnstaple and are off to Croyde Bay and Woolacombe tmow.
Car park is a 10 min walk away but not too much of a prob as it sorts the dogs walk out. To sum up, great holiday home, nice town is Bideford, would request better weather next time!

“An exceptionally clean and well presented cottage with a great view over the river.”
Reviewed September 7, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The cottage is very comfortable and quiet. We cooked several meals in the small kitchen which is very well equipped with good crockery, cutlery and well considered kitchen utensils. There is a good Co-op about 5minutes walk away which opens early and had fresh bread. We were reminded about how hilly Bideford is and although it didn't bother us, those who find steep hills and steps tough might have second thoughts about staying here! We will be staying at River View next time we go to Bideford
