Surrounded by the peaceful countryside of North Devon, this delightful property makes a fabulous hideaway for larger families and groups of friends seeking a quiet bolthole along the banks of the River Torridge. Offering idyllic accommodation for up to eight guests, the property has been tastefully decorated in fresh, relaxing shades, and has a jetty perfect for launching kayaks, canoes and paddleboards along the river. Featuring a charming reverse-level layout, this light-filled retreat is a lovely holiday base for walkers, beach lovers, nature watchers and water sports enthusiasts, and has a soothing hot tub, a warming wood burner, a cosy mezzanine snug and a large waterside garden with a stylish wooden terrace providing a fantastic space for al fresco dining as you take in the gorgeous rural views.

A few steps lead up into the property, with the welcoming hallway leading you through to a cheerful lounge with plenty of seating, a Smart TV and a wood burner, providing a comfortable spot for you to get together, watch a movie or chat about the day’s adventures. Exploring the ground floor further, you will find the refreshing family bathroom and three delightful bedrooms: a sweet single room with an additional pull-out bed, a relaxing double, and an en-suite double which has a door opening out onto the terrace.

The pretty dining area has a Smart TV and is perfect for sharing all your favourite family meals which you can prepare in the bright kitchen. This floor also features a charming en-suite double bedroom with beautiful river views. From the dining area, a ladder-style staircase leads up to a snug mezzanine space with beanbags and board games, making a lovely space to get away and curl up with a good book. Outside, a few steps lead down to the garden which offers glorious views down the river and across the valley. The river runs directly past the garden, with a jetty offering a useful spot for water sports fans to embark on aquatic trips. The garden also features a relaxing hot tub on the patio, and a delightful, raised terrace with outdoor furniture, perfect for sitting back with a drink.

An absolutely spectacular cottage which had everything we needed. The main dining space and kitchen was fantastic and spacious, but it was lovely to have lots of other rooms and space for anyone who wanted a bit of peace and quiet. The riverside location and views were beautiful. The hot tub was amazing, especially by the light of a full moon with Read morethe sound of the river flowing by. Great communication from Catherine. I thoroughly recommend Ridd Cottage and will definitely be back. Thank you! Hide
