"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!

"An excellent detached holiday cottage furnished and equipped to a high standard"
My wife and I, and friends, were delighted with this cottage which we had booked for a week's fishing holiday at the end of September. We were made very welcome upon arrival by the owners, Kevin and Marjorie, who showed us around the cottage and provided us with a generous welcome hamper. The cottage is situated in a superb location, surrounded by woodland, and within 100 yards of the River Fowey, one of the country's foremost game-fishing rivers. There are extensive lawns, woods, and riverside walks within the owner's grounds which guests are free to enjoy. A large trout lake is situated in the grounds, and the owners have created various interesting distractions such as climbing frames and parallel bars etc as you wander around the grounds. The cottage itself is charming, clean, warm and cosy, and is well-furnished and fully equipped, with very good quality fixtures and fittings, and there was nothing that we needed that wasn't provided. The layout is ideal for two or more families holidaying together, as sleeping and bath/shower arrangements are ideally separated to accommodate each family having their own private facilities, but sharing the large kitchen and comfortable lounge. There is a large inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove in the lounge, and although it was not cold enough for us to use this, I can imagine that it would be magical on a cold autumn or winter night, with a glass of whisky....
The location is ideal for easy drives to Looe, Polperro, Fowey etc.
So glad you enjoyed your stay, we are still in the process of enhancing the outdoor facilities but it is good to know that you found everything to your liking. We do appreciate your very positive comments. Thank you.

"A very relaxing, welcoming and home from home holiday"
The cottage is very well equiped, paticularly the kitchen and the cottage has lovely period features. The beds were very comfy too! The welcome hamper was great and the grounds are 'to-die-for'!
The welcome from our hosts was cheerful, positive and nothing was too much trouble, including great suggestions for days out and places to eat and shop (check out Trago Mills)!
There is great birdwatching and the hosts were very enthusiastic about the home and their future plans for it! Definitly one to revisit soon!!
We delighted that your visit to Rivermead Cotatge was enjoyed so much, we agree that the Cottage and the adjacent Barns are really superb. We will ensure that the owners are also aware of your comments, both they and we hope we can be of service again soon.
