About Riverside Cottage and Lodge

Introduction

"For an enlarged celebration Riverside Cottage and Lodge welcomes family groups in two accommodations that comprise the main Cottage sleeping up to 10 people in traditional beamed period rooms and the Lodge sleeping an additional 4 in an immaculate contemporary barn conversion adjacent to the swimming pool. The lodge is a quick walk across the lawns from the cottage.\nRiverside Cottage is nestled in 5 acres of beautiful gardens set on the banks of the River Dever. The Cottage is a delightful example of a truly blissful country retreat with its thatched roof cosy but spacious interior and wonderfully manicured gardens. Riverside Cottage gives a feeling of tranquility and seclusion as soon as you enter its long driveway with everything a country goer may want and yet within walking distance of the little hamlet of Bansbury. This charming much loved home is within easy reach of the historic City of Winchester with its excellent shopping and restaurants. However the setting is so pretty you may not want to leave at all There is an impressive kitchen at the heart of the property with a traditional AGA which no true country cottage should be without and is ideal for entertaining. This opens out on to the garden facing conservatory and terrace with wonderful views of the surrounding grounds. The cottage has no shortage of traditional charm with original wood beams comfy beds unique furniture and cosy log burner to relax by and unwind after a long country walk.The Cottage was once a separate farmers’ cottages but was converted into one property it retains the unique touches of each cottage including 3 separate staircases to discover for yourself\nThe Lodge conversion has a beautiful beamed open-plan sitting room. Large glass French windows open onto a private terrace overlooking the grounds a perfect place to spend a summers evening. Modern features abound inside with a separate kitchen leading onto the pool terrace outside. The large main bedroom sleeps 2 whilst the second bedroom is accessed via a narrow steep open staircase which leads to an open ended loft space open to the main sitting room below. We would recommend that this room space is not suitable for younger children or elderly adults. There is a modern spacious shower room on the ground floor.\nAlthough Riverside Cottage and Lodge is set beside a river the 5 acre garden is fully fenced and gated to ensure everyone’s safety. No wonder the Riverside Cottage featured in The Sunday Times ’25 great British holiday rentals’ and guests return year after year."

    It is a lovely cottage and lodge we enjoyed our stay very much, the pool was a great hit so glad we had the weather to enjoy it. Love the walks in the lovely country side saw quite abit of wildlife deer, rabbits bats, ducks swans and other birds on the river we heard the owl but not lucky enough to see it. The small things that let it down a bit was the bath in the lodge was dirty so had to clean it before use and the dead pot plants in the house and garden looked a bit sad but this wouldn’t stop us coming back

    In general excellent. The one issue we had is that we found a note at the property asking to pay the cleaner by cash directly. We ignored this as all our fees had been paid directly to you. As above. As above. As above.

    Very nice apartment on the first floor (lift available). Very well furnished throughout feeling light and airy with high ceilings. Located slightly out of town equi-distant to Tankerton and Whitstable but walkable to Whitstable. Bonus of having a parking space which is much sort after in the town! Good value especially for Whitstable which is more expensive to rent especially if you take into consideration the standard of décor and amenities in the apartment.
