This is such a beautiful estate. the house itself is so perfectly situated. however the property is sorely neglected. It is also not a breakfast accommodation as advertised. The host Forgiveness is stunning and very accommodating. We hope Rivendall can up its keep, as it is a lovely spot to break away to.

We enjoyed our one night stay at Rivendell. The room was very clean & spacious, we had a really comfortable stay. The ladies at the property were very friendly & helpful. Rivendell is situated in a beautiful location & estate. The pool & trampoline were really nice additions as well!

The place is a breath of fresh air, loved everything. Forgiveness is just the best. Thank you for going the extra mile to making sure my partner has the best birthday experience! The only bad thing was that we couldn't use the Jacuzzi.

Loved the beautiful house and its views. A home away from home! We are definitely going back to Rivendell.
