who we are

Riverside Cottage Guest House is a unique and stylish bed and breakfast accommodation sitting beautifully on the estuary of the river Torridge; opposite the Tarka Trail which is popular for walking and cycling holidays.

We are passionate about food and Donna loves to cook and bake. So, in the summer months we operate Mad Henry’s Vintage Tea Room in the dining room of the B&B and starting from Saturday 5th November 2016 we will host supper clubs for both guests and locals.

what we do

Our newly re-decorated bedrooms are elegant and comfortable with large clean modern bathrooms with excellent power showers. We provide huge fluffy white towels to wrap you in, with soft and luxurious crisp white bedding. The gardens, decks and terrace are the perfect place to relax and unwind. The new and colourful garden furniture make a bold and playful statement while the swivel egg chairs are especially comfy and are ideal to sit back, relax and enjoy the views. Mad Henry’s Vintage Tea Room is our latest venture; We now provide a Vintage Afternoon Tea served on a 3-tier stand; just remember don’t make plans for dinner. The tea room will open by reservation only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for Vintage Afternoon Tea for parties of 2 to 20. Mad Henrys Supper Club will be open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for parties of 2 to 16, again by reservation and pre-order only.
