CAST FROM YOUR GARDEN
Riverside House at Alswear is also near South Molton (see “A Devon retreat” facing page). This grade II listed house provides two reception rooms and a study, four bedrooms, of which two are ensuite, and a bathroom. Outside are a garage/workshop with a studio above. Gardens of one third of an acre run down to the River Mole, a tributary of the Taw. There are fishing rights, initially double bank bordering the garden and then single continuing along the bank opposite, providing some 312 yards in all with three named pools. The owners report brown trout, seatrout (including a fish of 6½ lb in recent years) and the occasional salmon.
Charming Riverside House is grade II.
