"Magical ;Darling buds of May; Rivermead Farm Cottage surpassed our expectations."
We loved Rivermead Farm Cottage. We travelled there in September 2012 with extended family which can be trying at the best of times but the minute we were welcomed by the wonderful owners into Rivermead Farm Cottage all the cares of the world melted away. From the photographs you can see the pretty cottage style decor but what you cant see is the extremely high quality of the decor and the furnishings. Rivermead Farm cottage is sparkling clean and oh so cosy with a well equipped kitchen and some of the most gorgeous views that i have ever seen. Mr and Mrs Creek obviously love their beautiful cottages (yes there are more on the same property and we are planning a trip with friends in the new year as between them they sleep 20!) and the care and attention to detail that they have lavished on them are obvious from the start. We had all sorts of extra goodies that we really didnt expect but that made us feel so special and welcome. Bodmin Moor is a beautiful part of the country and I absolutely recommend Rivermead Farm Cottage.
We are delighted to hear that all the family enjoyed their stay at Rivermead Farm, it was rewarding for us to see such a happy family group enjoying a holiday away together. Thank you for your very positive comments about the accommodation, we have furnished and equipped them to the standard that we enjoy on our holidays. Looking forward to welcoming you back in 2013!
