The Riverside Dream
Riverside Lifestyle began when we first opened the doors to Riverside Cottage, our spacious Hampshire hideaway that’s since been featured among The Sunday Times’ 25 Great British Holiday Rentals. With its exposed beams, flagstone floors, open fireplaces and roses round the door, the house has long been our refuge from the stresses of everyday life.
Riverside has two self catering properties all with their own unique countryside qualities.
The Riverside Yurt is open for coffee, teas and cakes – Wednesday to Saturday during the warmer months of March to October. Local residents help to run it.
All year round we offer exercise classes such as Yoga and Pilates, as well as Art classes and the occasional workshop. These take place at Riverside Cottage, its garden studio by the river and in the yurt.
I love all these things as part of my lifestyle and I am guessing you might too ..
Riverside is the place to relax and rejuvenate – to go for country walks, sit by the river , daydream over a glass of wine, or just curl up in a comfy chair with a good book.
We’ve filled our ‘shelves’ with things that are creative, original and indulgent! That includes our artisan range of jams marmalades and chutneys, and lavender beauty gifts made using our home grown Hampshire lavender. We also sell our award winning olive oil and sea salt crisps. (see our stockists)
We like to keep busy and to provide our guests with activities during their stay.
We offer Yoga and Pilates set classes which anyone is welcome to join or we can arrange individual bespoke classes. If you want a bit more of a ‘push’ why not have a personal trainer to put you through your paces every morning or indeed as an activity planned to your timings.
Please look out for our Art drawing classes – or if you want a personal or group session just let us know.
Maybe cookery is your thing – we offer a chef and cooking demonstrations at Riverside Cottage. Learn to pluck a pheasant or stuff a turkey or maybe its that dream cake you’d like advise on.
Everything at Riverside is meant to be fun – simply ask.
You don’t have to be in a stuffy city office to get things done; here at Riverside we’ve found that creating a calm, peaceful atmosphere in a refreshing country setting can make staff and clients alike more creative and productive.
