“LOVELY RELAXING HOLIDAY IN BEAUTIFUL LOCATION”
Reviewed 17 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Enjoyed our week long break immensely.
Kingfisher Cottage was fully equipped(home from home). it was comfortable and immaculate. furnishings all good quality.
Marjorie and Kevin will make you very welcome starting with a lovely hamper full of local goodies. They will always be on hand with advice if needed or for a friendly chat, but in an unobtrusive way.
Surroundings absolutely beautiful, was fab to open bedroom curtains in morning to amazing views. Handy to A road so near to lots of other beautiful areas of Cornwall.
Hopefully can go back soon

“A stunning cottage and location. Peace and tranquility in abundance.”
Reviewed 11 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed at the cottage with our 9 year twins and grandparent and we all had a special holiday.A great place for our family that has left us with lovely memories.
We were greeted by Kevin and Marjorie's warm welcome which continued throughout the stay. The welcome basket was full of tempting Cornish produce and Easter eggs. Our hosts could not do enough for us ( including rescuing a rogue ball that found its way into the river - thank you Kevin, you saved the day!
The cottage is beautiful with everything you could want for. The beds are comfortable, the lounge perfect for relaxing ( especially on April evenings with the the log burner) and it all so tastefully put together. We thought we had booked a lovely cottage by looking at the website but we were taken away by the reality of it.It exceeded all our expectations by far, this including the grounds which are just magical. There are lots of lovely places to visit nearby and further afield but our children were always itching to come back to play in their own 'country park.' We would recommend this cottage without hesitation.We booked this break with the intention of leaving behind busy family and working lives for a while. We were delighted that this cottage in this location delivered, we left relaxed and recharged. Thank you Kevin and Marjorie.

Thank you for the lovely review, we are delighted to know that the holiday at Rivermead was such a success with all the members of your family. There are indeed many lovely places to visit but I agree with the children, sometimes it is just nice to have the space and natural surroundings to play or relax without having to venture out with the car. Hope to see you back at Rivermead in the future. Marjorie & Kevin

“A fantastic cottage in a beautiful location.”
Reviewed 13 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Marjorie and Kevin made us very welcome with the gorgeous welcome hamper being a wonderful touch. Who wouldn't want to be welcomed by scones, jam and clotted cream?! The cottage was beautifully decorated with extremely comfortable beds. The cottage has everything you need, from wifi, DVD player to board games for the children and gas BBQ. As we were the only ones with children that week, the children were delighted when Kevin moved the seesaw to outside our cottage.
The location is beautiful, close to the river and a lake. Perfect for fishing or just enjoying the peace and quiet. We saw kingfishers and also a mother and baby deer in the next field every afternoon.
We used the cottage as a great central base to explore all of Cornwall.
I can't recommend Rivermead Farm highly enough and can't wait to return.
