If you want more than to stay in a bland hotel-chain room and fight crowds at buffet breakfast, book Kingfisher Cottage and enjoy the charm of this one-bedroom cottage which is all on one level and has its own entrance and dedicated parking area. You'll also enjoy exclusive guest access to 17 acres of beautiful Cornish woodland, meadow, a one and a half acre lake and a stretch of the River Fowey.

Kingfisher Cottage is in a converted 300 year old Cornish stone barn with very few straight walls but lots of character. The pretty south-facing living room has a comfy sofa and armchair with a TV, Freeview and a DVD player, perfect for relaxing after a day's sightseeing. There's superfast BT broadband/Wifi across the site if you want to keep in touch while you're here. You have a dining table chairs in the living room where you can have your breakfast looking out to spot the river between the trees and watch the squirrels pinching the birds' peanuts.

You'll get the same countryside view out of the bedroom window, also south-facing towards the river. There's a comfy double bed with high quality, coordinating bed linen, a wardrobe, dressing table and hairdryer.

The well-equipped, kitchen has everything you need, and perhaps some things you'd never even thought of! All the things you'd expect are there - electric oven and hob, fridge with ice-box, microwave, toaster, coffee machine - but probably also some things you didn't, like a picnic set and welcome hamper. The crockery is lovely Portmeirion Botanic Blue and there's plenty of cutlery and utensils if you really want to cook during your holiday, but don't miss the welcome folder with lots of suggestions for places to eat out. You'll also find a washing-up starter pack, a tea towel and oven gloves.

Across the hallway from the kitchen is the shower room with a thermostat-controlled power shower, WC and vanity unit. Towels and a bath mat are provided for you.

There's a handy porch area where you can leave bags and shoes and this leads out to a garden area where you'll have your own picnic bench, parasol and BBQ.

Some guests find that they don't leave the site as there's plenty to do with walks around the lake, bird-spotting in the hide, choosing your favourite picnic spot and going off grid with a book and a bottle of wine, finding your inner-child on the rope swings, having a game of boules on the court or even fishing for salmon or trout in the river. There's also a fire pit in the grounds which is another perfect spot for watching the soaring buzzards and listening to the river.

If you are exploring further afield, you'll have the perfect base. Rivermead Cottages are about half-way between Bodmin and Liskeard. Bodmin Moor is 5 minutes away by car, and Looe, Charlestown, Fowey and Lostwithiel can be reached in less than 20 minutes. There's a host of attractions within easy reach such as the NT gardens at Lanhydrock, the Eden Project, Golitha Falls and Lantic Bay. You'll find a wealth of information leaflets and suggested walks in the Rod Room.

Relaxing stay - great location for touring

By James G on 11-Oct-2017

Our second visit to Rivermead Farm. We stayed 3 years ago and returned because we had a good stay first time around. Very pleased to find it just the same and standards are very high. Lovely cottage which is ideal for two people in super tranquil setting with only the sounds of rutting stags and owl hoots to disturb you Great location for touring on north and south coasts and visiting many interesting homes and gardens I did not bring the fishing rods on this occasion which I now regret as the owner has made some definite improvements to the access points to the river. There's always another time! Looking forward to returning in the future and thanks for a great stay

Kingfisher Cottage

By rbaddogs on 10-Jul-2017

On arrival everything was as described and we were greeted with a very nice welcome pack (eggs, milk, cheese, scones, clotted cream, apple juice, fudge, chocolates & Prosecco from what I remember). Apartment is was cosy, extremely well equipped and had a very comprehensive information folder. Grounds were really nice with peaceful walk alongside River Fowey and fishing lake, wish we had more time just to spend there enjoying the surroundings. Owners were extremely helpful and very pleasant, they really want people to have a nice stay and happy to help with anything. Location was great for us as we wanted to explore north and south coasts and both Bodmin and Liskeard only about 4-5 miles for any shopping, fuel etc. 4.7 / 5.0
