WONDERFUL COTTAGE - GLORIOUS LOCATION by Sue & Tony Howells, Gloucester, July 2014 on February 14th 2017
Riverdale is a wonderful cottage in a glorious location. Cottage was very well decorated, furnished and very comfortable. Newton Ferrers is a lovely peaceful riverside village. The addition of a parking space was very acceptable too and the extras you so kindly left were very much appreciated. Thank you very much and we would love to holiday at Riverdale again in the future
AN IMMACULATE COTTAGE by Sarah D, August 2014 on February 14th 2017
We had a lovely week in this immaculate cottage. We parked the car on arrival and it stayed in the garage until our departure. The coastal walks from Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo were spectacular. The Ship Inn in Noss Mayo is outstanding and the Dolphin Inn in Newton Ferrers provided good food as well.
A LOVELY LITTLE COTTAGE by June 2015 on February 14th 2017
Riverdale was a lovely little cottage - well furnished, attractive and cosy. We arrived to a fresh cake, milk and wine which was a nice touch. The location is also beautiful with the tidal estuary flowing in front of the house and Noss Mayo rising on the other side of the water. The Dolphin pub was friendly and served the best mussels that I have ever tasted and all in all it was a good base for exploring. ovely holiday. Pretty location. Friendly locals. Great walks.
