“Great escape...very homely”
Reviewed 20 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Had a relaxing and comforting break at river view. Our children are 3 and 5 and the cottage had everything to offer to make it a home from home stay. Beautiful wood burner and everything you need to enjoy the area. Owner extremely helpful and couldn't have asked for more.....a must for young families or anyone wanting o escape from it all. Absolutely loved the shutters on the windows,,,,,and the decor.....thank you x

“Convenient location, lovely cottage.”
Reviewed 15 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Lovely cottage, convenient location. Only downside is car parking (but that would be the same for most properties in this area). Very friendly and helpful owner.

We originally picked out River View for its great looking accommodation and even better price. We were not disappointed once we finally found the property, which only has the fault of having no adjacent parking (had to park in long term parking 10 minutes walk away at £3 a night). We opened the door to a brilliant clean and fresh house, which is a lovely place to stay.
The house is laid out brilliantly, and was perfect for the 2 of us. Would be a bit more snug for 4. Bideford is a lovely small town with plenty of places within walking distance, River View is the perfect base for exploring North Devon.

Bideford is a old fashioned devon town with loads of charm. The only negative about river view is that it's jolly difficult to find in the dark! Top tip-arrive in daylight :-) The cottage is nicely decorated and well equipt. Because you cannot park outside it is tricky if you have a lot of luggage,I would have paid extra for bedclothes and towels to be provided. It would be very warm and cosy in the winter. It is near lots of nice places to eat. I would definitely stay there again!

“Excellent Value for Money”

Once your over the lack of adjacent parking the cottage is a really comfy, well equipped property and being able to book by the night is a bonus.
The access is via 35 steps from the lower road as the property sits on a terrace overlooking the river. There is parking on the main road next to the river and we left the car overnight for the week with no issues.
Well equipped with small fitted kitchen, large walk in shower, good sized bedrooms, Wi-Fi and outdoor seating area to the front overlooking the river.
The stairs are quite steep and with the access to the property to the terrace the property may not be suitable for couples with mobility restrictions.
It is a lovely cottage, nice and clean and well worth the cost.
