Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Relaxing.River Retreat
River Retreat is a home from home, with a fantastic location right on the river bank. Great views, cosy lodge and everyone is very friendly at Avon Park. Our 4th stay in this lodge and looking forward to another visit.

Fantastic Lodge with views over the River Avon with unobstructed views from inside.
This lodge is absolutely fabulous. Well furnished, toward the end of row on the river front with fields to the left and no lodges on the other side of the river. The new deck with glass surround gives you a completely unobstructed view of the river from inside the lodge. Lovely furniture and comfortable beds and well equipped. Quiet with fishing access and a large clubhouse with music across the bridge. It doesn't get any better than this. Can walk into Stratford town or catch one of the ferry's that serve the site. I will be back soon!

Great location
The lodge is situated directly in front of the River Avon. A patio area overlooking the River. Very cosy lodge with nice decor and two good sized bedrooms and bathrooms. The owner, Stella, was very helpful if we had any questions. The site itself is very nicely maintained. Good restaurants within walking distance.

Peaceful cabin
Juaf returned back from a peaceful and relaxing break . The cabin is located on the river bank which is great to watch the boats go by. The cabin had everything we needed and Stella was amazing with communication . You can walk into Stratford along the river bank which takes around 50 minutes. The weather was great so we enjoyed eating on the decking in the evening and watching the world go by.

A beautiful lodge in a stunning location
We had a wonderful week in River Retreat. The lodge was beautiful and Stella has thought of everything- all the little things you usually forget to bring were there. We loved sitting out in the morning and evening, relaxing while our son slept. The closeness to the river was perfect and allowed us to watch the world go by. Ideally located to visit the area and the water taxi was a great bonus. Recommend a stay here, I know we will definitely return. Thank you.

Lovely home in perfect spot
Our second visit to this site and River Retreat has one of the best views. We enjoyed the walk to the village where Spar sells everything, even daily baguette! I was thrilled when I found out that there was a Pilates session on the grass and thoroughly enjoyed the exercises in the sunshine. We watched the exciting dragon boat races on the river and we couldn't go home without a visit to Warwick Castle. River Retreat Lodge is a lovely home from home and my only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!
