Beautiful bungalow, lovely views, excellent facilities and we loved the extra personal touches. Thank you very much! Weaver family - 16th September 2017
Right from the start Angela and Frank went over and beyond to do what ever they could to ensure we felt welcome and relaxed, from magazines for our boys and access to a range of indoor and outdoor toys, to drinks in the fridge and yummy cake/chocolate! "All" thelittle things are actually what make a huge difference. It takes very special persons to want to create this "oasis" for others and even more special persons to be able to do it Thank you Yard family - 12th August 2017

River View is your perfect holiday cottage. It's THE most well equipped place we've ever stayed in.

A really superb holiday home, scrupulously clean and the on-site owners could not have been more friendly and helpful during our stay. Angela had thought of everything, down to a little sewing kit provided and other, thoroughly useful stuff in the well-stocked kitchen ... Lovely touches such as the wonderful homemade cake, and a bottle of wine to welcome us were much appreciated. The views from the house are stunning and the location at the edge of the village very convenient. We will definitely be returning. Thank you.Heather Prophet, Reigate, Surrey - 1st September 2014

5* stars ~ View, parking, space, cleanliness, heating, comfortable beds and chairs, large dining table in a large dining room, ample hot water, fully and well equipped kitchen, excellent welcome pack/stock items, nice layout, Welcoming and helpful owners. I cannot think of one negative thing to say about the place or our stay. We were husband, wife husbands mother; while my brother stayed one night and our children for the duration, though not expected. The place was convenient, allowing us to stroll a short distance to the flat and then through Shaldon with it's pubs and usual whathaveyou, to the foot ferry and across to Teignmouth. Teignmouth has a railway station while a drive across the river and left a short distance on the Newton Abbot road takes you to a decent supermarket ...... a long walk with a stolen supermarket trolley though. Loved it and hope to do it again as would my mother if she could ever drag us to England again. We rented in winter and we were comfortable and warm. Other than the above I did not feel that we were renting a 'Holiday Home' and for me/us this is very important. Best family gathering that we have had in years including a pick-up in Venice and drive home to the west coast of Italy for Christmas.The Jarvis Family - 1st February 2014
So great to share this lovely house & views with my family. Enjoyable times. Chocolate cake my favourite!Chris Jarvis - 1st November 2013

Thank you for providing such a lovely place to stay. We have been out and about exploring much of the coast. It was comforting to return to the bungalow, tea and lemon drizzle. It is all fantastic. Many thanks.Karen & Rich from Coventry - 1st October 2013
