Beautiful location with the cosy house

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Riverside Lodge over the New years and enjoyed it very much. House is beautiful, grounds are stunning. Lodge is in traditional style, but has everything you can possibly need. Rating it with 4 stars only because of some technical issue we had over the night, which spoiled our holidays just a bit, but Tim and Debbie were always on the call and sorted it all out straight away. So in general we spent a lovely time and have been looked after by the hosts.

Perfect place for the quiet celebration.

P.S DO NOT bring fireworks there :) Cows dont like them :)

First class accommodation, location and customer service.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with friends. We chose the accommodation to meet the needs of two families. One with a teenager and the other with a 6-year-old. Lots of activities for both age ranges. We played golf every day, the garden was large enough to play cricket and bowls. The location is around an hour from Lulworth and Durdle Dor and 30 minutes from Longleat.

The accommodation and facilities were fantastic, with little touches such as board games, flowers and a lovely welcome pack on arrival.

Tim and Debbie were fantastic hosts, and available to answer any questions we may have had during the stay. We will certainly be recommending to friends, and are planning another stay very soon.
