About the property

Rivermead Cottage - a holiday cottage that sleeps 8 guests in 4 bedrooms

Set in 17 acres of idyllic grounds with a half mile of private River Fowey frontage offering top class private salmon and trout fishing, Rivermead has some of the most spectacular scenery and whether fishing, bird watching, sightseeing, walking, golfing, cycling or just relaxing, Rivermead Cottage is the perfect holiday destination. Beautifully appointed with south facing views, the cottage is steeped in character and possesses a wealth of exposed beams and period features, including an original inglenook fireplace with a wood burner.

There are stunning, uninterrupted panoramic views of rolling farmland, mature spruce forests, natural woodland and livestock in adjoining fields. Set around a courtyard and overlooking the natural slope down to the river the delightful surroundings provide a peaceful environment for all ages. During your stay at Rivermead it is possible to see kingfisher, otters, badgers, foxes, owls, wild deer, heron, mallards, moorhen and Canadian geese, not to mention bluetits, finches, nuthatches, robins, woodpeckers, thrushes and hovering birds of prey.

The lake provides an idyllic setting for sitting out on a summer's evening, watching the setting sun, with a glass of wine perhaps. There are benches and picnic tables both outside the properties and by the river and lake and portable barbeques are available. River fishing in season. Fishing is free on the River Fowey (please enquire as to availability). Whether an experienced fisherman or a novice, why not relax down by the water and pit your wits against nature.

Site working team accomodation

  • 4 of 5

We had a team of 6 lads working in the area for a week and found Rivermead cottage to be an ideal location and size to accommodate them. Unfortunately they were not able to pick up wifi in the cottage they were staying in but otherwise all was good.

Relaxing family stay - with a few pleasant surprises

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at Rivermead cottage which was spacious and well equipped. The property is beautifully situated for touring Cornwall and was not too far from destinations on both coasts. The hosts were friendly and helpful and wed were treated to a lovely welcome pack containing a few essentials - eggs, butter, milk etc and ingredients for an arrival cream tea.

We knew the grounds were extensive and offered fishing walks. But the garden games were a welcome treat for our teenage lads and the fire pit was well used by us for bbqs and toasting marshmallows.

Lovely cottage

Stunning location. Well-furnished, cosy cottage.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was well-furnished, perfectly clean and tidy and comfortable for the 4 of us. The setting is stunning with river walks and gardens being a real treat, with sightings of otter, heron, kingfishers being highlights. Fishing in July was very much on the light side in the river.

In terms of value, for the price I would expect a bit more privacy to the cottage setting within the grounds. In terms of being fitted out, the cottage had everything you could want, and in some ways too much - we could have done with more cupboard space for food and I think a larger fridge would suit bookings larger than our family of 4.

All in all, a fabulous week in Cornwall and the location makes wonderful access to both north and south Cornwall if desired.

Great holiday and property, only downside was that building works going on when we were not advised,

  • 4 of 5

The cottage itself is wonderful and the welcome pack on arrival much appreciated, we spoke mainly to Kevin and only saw Marjorie the once.

The complex (for want of a better word) didn't appear to be quite ready, things like the gas bbq being on a building plot (there was 2 new huge cabins being installed, one no more than 15 metres from our cottage) and not working although I did try and help Kevin with it.

Going back to the building work, had we been informed of it going on (it was major on the Monday and Tuesday with our car being blocked on the way in Monday and blocked on the way out Tuesday for hours) we would have chosen a different date even if we had been offered a reduction which we weren't.

The works continued for the rest of our stay and instead of waking up to birds singing it was to a Kubota digger driving past our cottage which tore up the path to the river, this Kubota digger also being the view outside our cottage for a few days.

I did fish the river and am an experienced angler with no joy but maybe the river was low so I'm not sure why I didn't spot one fish but did have 2 or 3 bites.

The little golf course is fun, putting is impossible though as the grass was so long on the green, I think it had been too wet to cut maybe.

The grounds itself are exclusive and you don't meet many people while there although with 2 new additional cabins being installed this will be busier for sure.

Overall a good holiday that was impaired by the building work made worse by not being informed of until we arrived on the Saturday.

On another note if 8 are staying at the Cottage then you will have to bring in chairs from the kitchen to the living room as there are only 6 seats, the wife also said it needs a bigger fridge.

gelungene in der Natur gelegene Anlage, Tolle Betreuung

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist urig und sehr gefühlvoll eingerichtet. Es hat einen Kamin.

Drei Doppel- und ein Einzelzimmer. Ein Wohlfühlhaus.

Die Anlage fast mitten im Wald in der Nähe eines Fischteichs

Ein für uns winziger nicht ins Gewicht fallender Nachteil der Verkehrslärm von der Bundesstrasse und den stündlichen Zügen. Der ist auch nur deshalb zu hören, weil dieser Lärm durch eine Tallage sich trägt. Aber Betreuung durch die am Platz lebende Familie und eben die Natur machen das mnehr als weg. Ja, wir empfehlen diese Objekt hiermit!

Located just off the A38 between Liskeard and Bodmin, and backing onto Bodmin Moor yet only 15mins from the picturesque coastal resorts of Looe & Polperro. Rivermead Farm is ideally located for exploring the beautiful South East region of Cornwall.

The farm location gives you the freedom to take country walks straight from your door. Bike hire can be arranged locally.

Beaches & Watersports

There are numerous beaches within easy driving distance, ranging from wide exposed beaches to sheltered coves. Siblyback Lake, located on the edge of Bodmin Moor nearby, offers windsurfing, sailing and kayaking.

Local Towns & Villages

Explore the quaint villages of Polperro, Looe, Charlestown and St Neots, the historic towns of Fowey and Lostwithiel, and the local main town of Liskeard. There is lots to do, including the world famous Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Carnglaze Caverns to the Monkey Sanctuary at Loee and Bodmin Moor Wildlife Park. Local National Trust properties include the beautiful house and estate of Lanhydrock.


For something different visit the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery at Lostwithiel, Trelawney Garden Centre near Wadebridge or Trago Mills at Liskeard. Shopping Rivermead Farm is well situated for both coastal or inland walks, with Bodmin Moor, the Camel Trail and the South West Coast Path all easily accessible.

Other Activities

Golfers can enjoy the rich variety of numerous Cornish courses, both Links and Parkland but in particular the following are highly recommended; St Endoc, nr Rock is a Links course where a handicap is required.
