We have stayed in many cottages and Riverdale surpasses them all on every level – comort, furnishings and such a fantastically well equipped kitchen! We have had a wonderful week here.

It was cold and frosty outside but great to come home to this cosy cottage after our long walks. We made a good choice for our winter break. We’ve stayed in many holiday cottages before but the attention to detail makes this one – one of the best. Thank you.

A beautiful cottage which is well equipped and wonderfully located. We have explored so many places but with so much more to see we will have to come back! Spotted 12 different species of birds in the garden as well as rabbits and squirrels – perfect!

We had a great holiday. Cottage was very clean and comfortable and we were made very welcome by Allyson & Colin. We loved the garden. Cottage was ideal for centre of town and walks – the car was hardly necessary. 
Brian & Enid, Weston Supermare, Somerset

Our 4 day visit was nowhere near long enough. What a wonderful cottage – cosy, comfortable and so close to the many amenities in the town. Our ‘Westie’, Holly, had a lovely time in the woods. High Force is a must to visit and is so picturesque. Bowes Museum is very interesting. We will be recommending the cottage to our friends and family. 
Carol & Brian, Newark, Nottinghamshire

We had a smashing time. Perfect cottage – lovely place. Thoroughly enjoyed our (too-short) stay. I can recommend this cottage. Hope to return one day soon.
