It was excellent. Nicely tucked out of the way with great view of the estuary. Well equipped and some nice touches for when you arrive. Couple of the doors are low, so need to mind your head, especially the first bedroom at the op of the stairs. Parking on the quay or by the road was a gamble.

Rivertide is a beautiful cottage in a remote, pretty village with views across the estuary. It had a well equipped kitchen and was comfortable throughout. It suited our 2 families of 4 adults and 3 children very well. The lack of designated car parking was never an issue during our April visit, but maybe it could be in the summer. We never venturedRead more into the garden after seeing the drop over the wall into the estuary which was not safe for young children but older children would have been fine. Hide

Stunning location overlooking the estuary. Perfect for kayaking and swimming when the tide is in. The cottage is very comfortable and we loved sitting in the conservatory playing games and admiring the view. We had great fun at The Olde Plough Inn, engaging with the staff and other diners.

Great property in a fantastic location. The property is beautifully set up to maximise the stunning views across the river. It was so nice to wake up and have breakfast in the conservatory whilst enjoying the wildlife right outside the window. We had three generations who all had an amazing time. The local facilities were also a massive bonus, parkRead more, football goals and tennis court just a few hundred yards away.
