  • "Lovely house."

    Everything perfect. Lovely garden for the dog except smaller dogs don’t like gravel, so a few stepping stones to the large lawn would be good. One thing is that the bathroom window in the large bedroom has no blind or curtain so we had to put a piece of cardboard in the window. Would benefit from more mugs and teaspoons and some glass tumblers. Just minor things though. Would definitely recommend this lovely house and hope to return.

  • "I was totally shocked to find that the property was on 2 levels - no where in the listing did it mention this (which was a little difficult as 1 of the guests was elderly and struggled to get up the stairs)."

    But the property was beautiful in every other respect. We enjoyed having 1 settee each and were very comfortable, watching the massive TV in the lounge.The kitchen was well stocked with equipment. The garden area was ideal for our dog. The pub across the road served a lovely Sunday lunch - but booking is highly recommended - as it seems very popular.

  • "Riverside Lodge was a great place to stay and we would happily return for another visit."

    The accommodation was excellent with large spacious rooms which were comfortably furnished. The kitchen was clean and very well equipped. The games room provided lots of reading and games, and we enjoyed completing the puzzle! The location was ideal, close to lots of walking routes and with plenty of parking. We loved the gate through to The White Horse Inn where we managed to book several evening meals. Note, you do need to book as they get very busy even in April! A great week away, thank you!

  • "We are a family of 6 (2 kids, 2 parents and 2 grandparents) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riverside Lodge in Washford, Somerset."

    A stones throw from the delightful White Horse Inn pub, where we enjoyed a delicious dinner on "pie night"and a short walk to Torre Cider Farm, where we saw lambs and walked through the orchard before purchasing some ciders and other treats. Also close by was Washford Station, one of the stops on the West Somerset Steam Railway, running from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead, which we took a return trip on one drizzly day. Nearby visits to Dunster and Dunster Castle, and Watchet were also greatly enjoyed! And we did a day trip to Lynton/Lynmouth, driving along breathtaking A39 through Exmoor ending at the Valley of Rocks! Really spectacular! Accomodation was spacious and comfortable, including a huge living room, separate well-stocked games room and well-equipped kitchen. We couldnt work out how to use Xbox (so some instructions would be appreciated) but kids enjoyed selection of boardgames and legos! Kitchen just missing some basics like salt, pepper and cooking oil, but had teas, coffee and milk in fridge. We enjoyed amazing bean to cup coffee as well (once we figured out how to work the machine). On first floor were three en-suite bedrooms, which worked well for us. Would have liked two single beds for kids rather than double but all slept well. We would definitely stay here again and reccommend to others looking for a family-friendly, scenic countryside stay close to seaside and Exmoor national park with lots of options for daytrips suited to families!

    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.

  • "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.

  • "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!
