Riverbank Inn Hero 1

Riverbank Inn The South West

A boutique holiday/celebration home in a converted country inn

Riverbank Inn is a thatched south Devon pub that has been sensitively converted into a unique country retreat which is particularly well suited for large groups. Sleeping up to 29 guests in five private areas, it retains its welcoming air, along with a fully functioning bar, and a large dance floor/socialising area with sound and light systems to create a nightclub atmosphere for additional guests. There's also a plethora of traditional pub games and a nature-rich, two-acre garden on the banks of the river. Add to the mix a games room, a kitchen bristling with high-end appliances, a 20-seat cinema with vintage red velvet chairs and two large inviting sitting rooms, and you have the ultimate Devon holiday home or party house.

Play snooker, table tennis or air hockey in the games room, fire up the popcorn machine in the cinema room and settle down for a Netflix or Sky movie, or escape to the living room where you can share stories in the glow of the inglenook fireplace. Head outside to the riverside decking, cocktail in hand, for a lazy afternoon. Play croquet on the lawn, go wild swimming in the river or dip into the hot tub on its own private decking.

When thoughts turn to evening meals and entertainment, gather at the magical, festoon-lit dining terrace. Later, head indoors and create the perfect pub night with all your favourite people. Start with a mixology lesson, enjoy music on the sound system, and finish by retiring in front of the fire with a nightcap.

Bedtime brings nature-inspired décor in romantic oak-beamed rooms, along with luxury ensuites. Let the gentle lap of the river lull you into a restorative sleep, because tomorrow there are beaches to visit, market towns to browse and adventure activities to plan.
