River Point House is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful Paradise We had a most relaxing time. Stayed for a week & enjoyed the quiet location. The beds & couches were very comfy & the kitchen facilities were good. The nearby 'Boat House accommodation (about 200 metres) was also very well screened which offered great privacy for the house guests. We stay at a lot of similar priced venues & found it good value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very relaxxxxxxxing ! This place is as good as it looks on-line ! Some great wineries nearby (Holm Oak for Pinot Noir and Goaty Hill for Chardonnay) only add to the appeal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from River Point House certainly lived up to its advertising. Beautifully positioned on a broad sweep of the Tamar River, and with a lovely aspect, the house had all of the facilities we needed to "cook up a storm". The owners also went to extraordinary lengths to make our stay successful, helping source, and then delivering, a range of specialised provisions so we could enjoy the very best of what the region has to offer. I recommend it without any hesitation and will certainly return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love Riverpoint house! Very well appointed, great location & awesome views. We stayed 12days as a family of four with tiny children, with grandparents, aunts & uncles joining us at various times throughout our stay. There was something for everyone and everyone was very impressed, from the views to our private beach, the wildlife & the coffee machine. We ALL looooovve the rope swing from the tree. This is the stuff family memories are made of!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "How's the Serenity?"Passing through the gates give you no real indication of the tranquility and nature's splendour that await.EVERYTHING is luxurious but not over the top. Elegance is evident in every little detail from the linen and furnishings through to the amazingly equipped kitchen. Absolutely every want was catered for.Perfect place for a special celebration.Excellent value and beautiful location!!! Our family and another stayed for two nights to celebrate a milestone birthday,not long enough...we will return again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you for such a peaceful, waterfront get away. I stayed here with my five siblings and we enjoyed the perfect bay outlook, fully stocked book shelf and games cupboard, top quality appliances and hotel style linen. We are planning on doing this every year.
