    "Such a lovely cottage in a great location. One of our favourites. Would definitely recommend."
    David – 20 Oct 2018
    "A very beautiful cottage and a very beautiful area would not have wanted to miss the experience."
    Lynne – 1 Sep 2018
    "Delightful country cottage in a quiet, idyllic spot. Well located for dog walking and days out to the West Somerset Coast. Beautiful garden and stream running along side. 2 large separate sitting rooms which was ideal for us and our teenagers. The utility room was particularly helpful in drying our clothes overnight. Many thanks for a truly wonderful holiday"
    Oliver – 5 Aug 2018
    "What a fantastic week at Riverside Cottage. It is a really lovely cottage, with a beautiful garden and stream running by the side of it. The surrounding countryside is lovely to explore."
    Ann – 9 Jun 2018
    "A gorgeous cottage. Very cosy and comfortable and clean. Beautifully decorated and furnished with a fabulous cottage garden with river running by. Could not fault it."
    Sue – 27 May 2018
    "Loved it! The cottage both inside & out. The quirky, stylish furnishings, & loads of interesting books. Particularly liked the bed/mattress in the main bedroom, it’s like floating on a cloud. The shower enclosure & the actual shower itself were great. We loved the garden & river alongside made it extra special & very relaxing. Parking on the lane was fine for us, although there is off street parking for two cars if you want it. Lovely walk along the old mineral line to watchet, it runs alongside the West Somerset steam railway one side & the washford river. Dunster just up the road. Sunday lunch at the Royal Oak, Luxborough was outstanding. We love this area & Exmoor. Weather was terrific. Would return in a heartbeat. Thank you so much to the owners."
    John – 28 Apr 2018
    "As a retired couple with a small poodle, we shared the cottage for a meet up with our daughter, partner and 7 month old baby grand daughter. A high chair and cot were provided free of charge and there was plenty of space and comfort in the three reception rooms and dining kitchen. The three large bedrooms were set out so that we were not disturbed at night - we want one of those mattresses. We even coped well with the single bathroom as there is a separate toilet.The garden was a delight with two seating areas, posh swing and summer house. We enjoyed the wide variety of spring flowers and shrubs and it would be even sweeter when the roses bloom and the sun comes out!It is an old cottage but we met the owner Sue and she keeps it very clean and well decorated. It is one of the best equipped cottage we have stayed in but not at all cluttered, until we spread out our things that is.We found the working village and its people charming, with small swings close by and a lovely walk along the old mineral line to Watchet suitable for a large pushchair. This is not to be confused with the preservation steam railway which it runs alongside and a must for a visit to Minehead or further afield. There is another good pushchair walk and clean toilets at Dunster Beach with linnets and migrating whimbrel to add interest. The younger ones took themselves off to explore Exmoor for an afternoon, whilst we caught up with sleep and dipped into the interesting array of books.Five minutes to Williton affords all you need for everyday shopping and fish and chips and a good pub. We did not sample the local places for main meals but there is plenty of choice and we had light bites at Dunster (village and National Trust), Kilver and we found a delightful place in Minehead town (blue sun shades), that even took our dog.Parking was ample just over the river, and we also found it convenient to use "on street parking" or the village hall car park during the day for a small charge. Altogether a memorable family holiday."
    Julie – 4 Apr 2018
    "We all had a wonderful time despite the weather. The house was fully equipped and well laid out. We would definitely recommend and would love to stay there again. Thank you."
    Serena – 17 Mar 2018
    "Really lovely comfortable cottage, and a great base for a walking week."
