Safe swimming for the younger ones in the estuary and beach walking are just some of the activities you can enjoy while staying at Grandads Cottage.

There is plenty of room for the children to play a game of cricket or pitch a tent.

The Riversdale Beach general store has takeaways, great coffee and anything you may have forgotten. The store also has an off licence but note no petrol.

Riversdale Beach Golf course is a challenging 9 hole course that has seen the odd grown man cry. Clubs can be hired on request and other than the summer holidays no booking times are required. Meals can be purchased at the club on most Friday nights and all are welcome. There are also tennis courts at the golf club.

  • The cottage is beautifully situated overlooking farmland and coast

    The cottage is beautifully situated overlooking farmland and coast. It is quiet, peaceful and sheltered. A lovely farm walk to the beach which isn't a swimming beach but then is very close by car to Riversdale which is superb for swimming and walking. The house was spotless and charming and had everything we needed for a relaxing break. Thank you Grandads Cottage.

  • Relaxing, great views of the Pacific ocean

    Relaxing, great views of the Pacific ocean. Great bird watching quails, pheasants etc. Riversdale beach bout 15 minutes drive away good for coffee and beach walks, also best beach to swim at. Beach at Grandpas cottage took 25 minutes to walk down to and no good for swimming but good for fishing.
