We decided to take a weeks holiday in north Devon with a first time trip taking our dog. Great walking location with superb beaches and countryside. Plenty of welcoming places to take the pooch. Great welcome from the owners of our cottage apartment Simon and Donna

There is also a gated off area for the dogs to run about in. We were self catering, but we had our breakfasts in the guest house as they were...

Lovely B@B situated on the banks of the river Torridge. Made very welcome. Clean and pleasant room. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area. Some traffic noise but not a real issue. Lovely dining room with great views.

Really enjoyed our two day stay at the Riverside Cottage Guesthouse. It was clean, tidy and had those little extras such as full size shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and bubble bath. The couple who run it are friendly and really helpful. Breakfast is locally sourced and was generous. It was great also having a view of the river and goats...

This was our third visit to Riverside Cottage Guesthouse, and as usual it was amazing. Donna and Simon are the best hosts not that they intrude. The accomobation is clean, comfortable and well equipped. The view from the accommodation could not be better, esp having a cooked breakfast looking out onto the river watching the wild life, before a long...

We really enjoyed our stay here, we were at a wedding for Easter weekend and Donna and Simon were really accommodating, allowing us to check in early. Breakfast was amazing and really filled us up, with good bread and great cereal selection!

From start to finish, we had a wonderful stay at Riverside Cottage. Simon and Donna couldn't have been more welcoming nor more helpful during our stay. Riverside Cottage has the homely feel of a guesthouse, but with the privacy and quality of a high-end hotel. The rooms are very well appointed and amazingly comfortable. The gardens and outside areas are...

This was our second visit to Riverside Cottage and we will go again. Donna and Simon are very welcoming and friendly, as is Henry the donkey plus the other members of the menagerie. Rooms nicely decorated and comfortable, breakfasts excellent, and Donna's cream teas are a must.
