“What a great place to stay!”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

What a great place to stay! The location is quite and beautiful which was just what we wanted. The small park for the children was close to where we were staying and was great for our boys to unwind after a day out. Don't miss the chip shop mobile van on a Tuesday at the football club! Also 20 minutes from the site is a nice swimming pool in a town called Camelford. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and welcomed us on arrival. Our sat nav took us straight to the site so no problems there. Look forward to returning soon and maybe will take the grandparents next time.

I would like to say a big thank you to the owners of rivermead holidays, this has been our second stay and it was again a pleasure we felt very welcome and enjoyed every second we where there, the surroundings are fantastic and the village is quiet, perfect for a relaxing break away.

Thank you so much

Went with a few family members for a short weekend break (2 nights) on the weekend of 10-12 August 2012. We were in a 4 berth caravan, the site was really great and the Owners Steve and Julie were very welcoming! The site is a small site and ideal for walkers or a quiet break. The site does accept dogs (providing they are well behaved!).

The caravan was really nice, in excellent condition inside and out and very clean. Had a DVD flatscreen TV with Freeview so ideal for the little-uns when not out and about, the kitchen was well stocked with microwave, oven with grill and hob, kettle, toaster etc! My only very small negative would be that the caravan could have done with one or two small chairs / stools as 4 people eating around the table was a bit of a squeeze as the table can only be around one of the two corner sofas, there was however a lap tray in the kitchen and also an outdoor table and chairs for the better weather.

Rivermead is situated in a small village on the outskirts of Bodmin on the edge of the moor, about 15-20 minutes from Bodmin town and 15 minutes from the North Coast.

The village has a local pub/restaurant (we did not visit but reviews seem pretty good for this), post office / cafe (does Pizza's on a friday evening and breakfast on a saturday morning and another small shop which was well stocked and most things were very reasonably priced for a small shop.

If you are after a quiet relaxing break then we would definitely recommend Rivermead!

Thank you so much for the lovely review. Very detailed with lots of useful information.
Made a note about the lack of seating in the dining room and have recently acquired a couple of stools. Hope to see you again.
Kind Regards Julie & Steve

After trawling through various websites looking for a last minute UK break - Rivermead appeared offering a great rate for a 5 night stay. After my initial enquiry via email, the owners gave me loads of information prior to the stay. Ensure you follow their directions and not the sat nav when arriving. After a long journey, it was great to arrive with beds made up and a very clean caravan. The caravan is well-equipped with everything for your holiday - even clean pots and pans! Normally, I clean all the utensils prior to using but this was not necessary. My only concern was that the site allows dogs into the vans and I have an allergy to pet hair. I have to say that the van was so clean I didn't even need to use my anti-histamines. The location feels quite remote however you are only a short drive away from Beaches and attractions. Be prepared for the narrow roads!!!! All in all a brilliant break away from the hustle and bustle of life allowing time to really relax and chill out. The hosts are so friendly and welcoming and the site is extremely clean and tidy and well looked after.

Thank you for your lovely review. Doing flexible start days enables us to be very thorough when preparing them for our guests, We only allow dogs in 4 of the lets. Keeping 3 of them totally dog free enables us to make sure that anyone with an allergy is allocated dog free accommodation.
Hope to see you again soon.

The owners were really friendly and we were greeted on arrival. The site is small, quiet and peaceful but without feeling enclosed. The caravans were clean and well maintained. A great location to explore the north Cornwall coast without the hustle and bustle of the busier destinations.

Julie and Steve the owners gave us a lovely welcome on arrival. Their small site is immaculate and so well kept, accommodation spotless....in fact couldn't fault any of it. Such a quiet location but a great base for you to explore other areas of Cornwall. We stayed in a cabin/chalet which the kids absolutely loved. Has everything you need plus a great little laundry room next door. They also allow pets which was also a plus point. Such a great price for well kept accommodation. Will be looking to return.

Steve and Julie the owners are really friendly. The site was immaculate, difficult to believe that the caravans were not new. The location is amazing, so peaceful but only a short drive from some of Cornwalls fantastic beaches. Driving over to moor to the location is an experience not to be missed. You felt all your problems disappear as you left the rat race on the A30.
We will certainly be going back.
