The excellent central location i halfway between Liskeard and Bodmin, just off the A38. There are five self catering properties: four cosy apartments within the converted barn and one detached period cottage. They sleep 2 to 8 guests individually or a total of 20 if all properties are combined, making Rivermead Farm an ideal choice if you are planning a larger gathering. We offer restful harmony and comfort amidst the backdrop of an angler’s paradise.

Rivermead overlooks a natural scenic slope that gradually descends to the River Fowey. These delightful surroundings provide an enchanting environment for all ages.
Guests can enjoy walking in our secluded 17 acre estate with its woods, copses, lake and river access. During your stay it is possible to see otters, badgers, foxes, deer, Canadian geese, kingfishers, owls, herons, mallards, moorhens, blue tits, finches, nuthatches, robins, woodpeckers and hovering birds of prey. Rivermead is ideal for any age. Keep fit walking around the estate or use the fitness trail; children can play safely on the extensive grass areas; use the petanque court and swing ball or just chill out with a glass of wine beside the lake. There are picnic tables outside all of the properties. Bike hire is also available locally
The private stretch of the River Fowey has some of the best late autumn salmon fishing in England, remaining open until December 15th.
