Riverview – Terrace house with 2 bedrooms on the bank of the River Stour – Sleeps 4



Lovely southerly views across the River Stour

Many thanks to David for the below review after their stay with us at Riverview in Wimborne in February!

“River View cottage is a very comfortable and cozy, modern 2 bed home with lovely southerly views across the River Stour. It is so relaxing to watch the activity on the river and enjoy the sunsets across the flood plain. The cottage is well equipped and there is lots of hot water to use for washing and using the showers. The lounge dining room works very well and there is a large smart windscreen TV for entertainment. The beds are very clean and comfortable, guaranteeing a good nights’ sleep. Check in and checkout is super easy. The location is excellent being only a short 10 minute walk to the centre of Wimborne where there are lots of cafes and restaurants. Definitely recommend Cloisters and Aromas for breakfast/lunch, plus Topogigio and Piccolo Mondo for supper. There are plenty of walks and paths around to keep you busy and you are only a very short drive to many local attractions and beaches. Very highly recommended.”
