“Simply perfect!”
Reviewed 2 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This is the first time either me or my partner have made a review on TripAdvisor, but felt this accomodation was worth the effort. The flat was clean, tidy and had everything you needed (and so much more!!!) to satisfy any holiday maker using self catering. The pictures really do not do this place justice as is a lot bigger than it looks, the bed is comfy and most off the furnishings seem quite new. Other than this though it was the personal touches that make this stand out from other places we have stayed in. I won't spoil what these touches are, but it made our stay that little more special.

You will need a car, however the place is in such a tranquil spot you will not mind that as is really close to both South and North Coasts of Cornwall (very easy to get to tourist areas like Padstow and Polperro, but very nice to be able to drive away from these very busy areas).

Thank you and we will be back!!!

We are delighted you felt we justified your first review on TripAdvisor and to hear that you loved Rivermead Farm. It is great to be able to wander our 17 acres grounds and we agree with yor comment that photos do not adequately convey the feeling of space. We do hope you felt refreshed after your stay and hope to welcome you back in the future.

“By far one of the best places my wife and I have stayed at, absolutely fabulous.”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

What a wonderful place, the cottage was so much better than we had expected, extremely impressed with everything. Was furnished to a very high standard with all the chattels one could possibly wish for. We received an extremely warm reception on our arrival from the hosts, Marjorie and Kevan who couldn't do enough for us in every way throughout our week's stay. Set in wonderful surroundings, 27 acres of breathtaking scenery with lovely lakes where one could relax on various park benches, a slice of paradise for sure. Easily accessible from the A38 and extremely handy to lots of places of interest and neighbouring seaside villages. Without hesitation, we would recommend this place and would rate it 5 star, excellent value. Was the highlight of our 3 month holiday in the UK and we shall be taking back with us to New Zealand many happy memories. Ernest and Shirley Taylor

“A week in Paradise”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The property is situated in acres of land which are accessible to all. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortably furnished. The area is within easy travelling distance of major resorts and attractions. From start to finish our holiday experience was fantastic. The weather helped of course but even if the sun had not shone every day we would still have had a wonderful time. Kevin and Marjorie were extremely helpful and the surprise welcome goodies and personal message on the blackboard were a good way to start the holiday. Our best holiday for a while - all the best bits of a Mediterranean holiday with none of the bad bits like airport queues and crowds. Will definitely return.
