We stayed here on night (and having now seen this area, would love to return and stay again at this accommodation) on our way around the South of England and Wales.
An awesome nights stay in a nice room on the second at the back of the property, overlooking the babbling brook.
Only negative is the lack of parking, due to the location of the Riverside, and the layout of the village itself, parking would not be possible any closer than the Public Parking area which is about 30 metres along the road. Not far, but is a Pay and Display Carpark....which is a little off putting when staying at least overnight as you need to move your car out of the carpark before the Parking Warden arrives!!!! A parking permit for residence/guests would make this more attractive as an accommodation.
The onsite Restaurant provided excellent food, both for our evening diner and our Breakfast the following morning.
The service we received was very good, especially the young lad who booked us in when we arrived.
We walked around the Village in the evening and what an awesome place. Tucked in between cliffs and steeps hills, this cove with the sea coming in to meet the river provided a very romantic setting. The old building (most made of stone) added to this charm.
Despite the only negative (parking issue) we would fully recommend this to anyone and will be keen to stay here again on our next visit to the UK, and hopefully for more than one night
