We have just returned after staying one night here so we could see our son at the CTCRM for families day. We had booked a night at a nearby bed and breakfast but was let down by them when they failed to collect us from the station. After ringing around we were given Jan and Tim's number and felt very relieved that we would have somewhere to stay with reliable hosts.
We were very happy with Riverdown as it is in a beautiful setting at the end of a pretty lane, walking distance to the CTCRM if needed as well as Exton station and the only nearby pub (we don't drive so need to find amenities in walking distance!) the Puffing Billy, which is more costly than your normal pub grub but provided us with an excellent meal, (though more choice might have been appreciated). The whole of the downstairs is for guests and we were given a beautiful room, very spacious and nicely decorated, along with a lovely bathroom and large shower. The room opens up to the garden where you can sit outside and enjoy the peace of the countryside (although the train runs at the end of the garden it didnt spoil anything for us and stops at night) Jan didnt have to take us in as she had just come home from holiday but kindly offered us what was to be a lovely place to stay. If we had more time and could drive we we recomend this to anyone wishing to explore the local countryside as well as Exeter which is around 20 mins away with lots of history to see. There is even a country path close by which is nice to take a stroll along after having a meal. The cooked breakfast was good and again Jan and Tim put themselves out as we had to be at the camp for 7.45am with Tim being kind enough to give us a lift to the gates. We will be booking this again if needed for the Passing out parade in Feb next year. Highly recommended!
