  • "What a wonderful week we enjoyed in this beautiful lodge."

    Very clean, really well equipped, I can't fault it!

  • "We loved our stay."

    However they’re was a mish mash of glasses, not set up for 6 people, no cork screw or bottle opener, which are small things to get right. The situation is amazing, we just felt we were visiting at the end of season and housekeeping and maintenance has slipped a little. That said, we would definitely visit again, such a fantastic location.

  • "Excellent property in a great location with very good facilities."

    The pub next door is added bonus with good beer, great food and welcoming friendly staff.

  • "Very impressed."

    Clean and very well equipped. Wifi was great and the level of equipment including a great coffee machine, bottle coolers, gas barbecue and retro arcade machine being a highlight. Proved to be a perfect base for 6 of us and our dog. The spacious grounds allowed us to exercise and let our dog off the lead, as well as space for family football and rounders. The kitchen with the island was the hub of the house , with the lounge and games room providing quiet areas for catching up on tv, reading and family games. Area was great to explore, with Watchet, Minehead and Lynton nd Lynmouth being popular. Sunday lunch at the White Horse was excellent. We used the private gate to sit by the river in the White Horse garden and play cards. We also had excellent breakfast twice at the Torre Cider farm.

  • "We were a group of three mature couples with classic cars."

    Riverside Lodge met our needs perfectly, three double bedrooms all en-suite and plenty of space downstairs. The Kitchen diner was well equipped, spacious and lovely to have al fresco dining indoors by opening the large patio doors. We had supper twice at the White Horse Inn just across the stream and car park. Meals, ales & house wine excellent. Riverside lodge is highly recommended without any reservations what so ever.

  • "We had a fantastic holiday at Riverside Lodge."

    It is located in a peaceful location, though not too far from plenty of amenities, main towns Dunster, with its castle, Minehead shingle, rocky beach and promenade. It had everything you need for an enjoyable holiday. The dining/kitchen was very spacious and well equipped. On sunny days you can dine out alfresco with the bbq.Our dog enjoyed the very larged enclosed garden. The beds were comfy and all bedrooms had ensuite facilities. We enjoyed eating at The White Horse Inn just across the road, The Valiant Soldier in Roadwater (very large portions and good value for money). The Torre cider farm provided good lunchtime produce. We had an enjoyable day out on the West Somerset Railway, catching the train from the local station (Washford). We definitely highly recommend Riverside Lodge and would return again when visiting this area of Somerset.

  • "Brilliant lodge furnished to a high standard."

    Every thing you would want was provided. The only negative point was that the router details in the folder was not correct though we did eventually work it out. The pub next door provided excellent catering and the staff were very friendly.

  • "Very good time had, property could benefit from A/C as bedroom’s are hot in the evening, a few minor issues sorted immediately by George the owner, very good access and parking, excellent pub backing onto property with private access from cottage , no morning or late evening noise and grounds very well kept."

    Would definitely stay here again.

    The property is very clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The WiFi was good and the welcome gifts including cider and wine and toiletries provided in all en-suites was a nice touch. We would definitely recommend.

  • "This was our second visit to Riverside Cottage and was just as enjoyable as the first."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and cannot be faulted in anyway. Although there were problems with the WiFi, beyond the owners control, the alternative equipment provided was quite adequate. The grandchildren particularly loved the large grassed garden ideal for cricket and football.

  • "We thought Riverside lodge was fabulous - the only problem, which has already been highlighted, was having no wifi - which was a huge inconvenience to us as most of us needed to keep in touch with work!"

    Everything else was excellent. We will definitely book this lodge again when the WiFi is fixed!
