One of the more simple places we’ve seen. The only thing you’ll hear is the sound of the river

***19th, 20th & 21st SEPTEMBER 2014 - Pego Ferreiro will host a brilliant Pinhole Camera Workshop run by Justin Quinnell. Bookings for those dates will be priced as a package including your stay and the workshop, please call for rates.***

The River Lodge was built by owner Richard, in a gorgeous spot overlooking a bend in the Rio Sever. It’s a simple wooden deck with a canvas cabin set under a cork oak on the rocks. Furniture is either hand made stick style or bought second hand from nearby Badajoz. The mattress on the tree-trunk bed is a quality orthopaedic and the goose down duvet means that you’ll only be roughing it if you choose to. At the lodge there’s a gas hob, the river, the woods, some books and games and...not much else. But then, what do you really need? This is the sort of place where you can, if not must, get away from it all.
During your stay you’ll live like Richard and Cathy do, off grid and off the land. The complimentary olive oil, wine and olive soap are all made a short walk away and if you explore the countryside and the nearby villages you’ll begin to get a feel for the rich culture and history of an area where some things have gone unchanged for centuries. You can explore this area on horseback or in the horse and cart too! 

Our guests say...

"We loved our stay at the river lodge. Richard was so accommodating and left us to do our own thing which was ideal. It was a complete escape and a holiday I won't forgot in a long time"

"It was perfect. We could not have wished for a better honeymoon. Thank you especially to Cathy and Richard (the owners), they are great hosts. Best: how isolated and natural the site is. Worst: it did not have any faults in our perception. A truly magical place."
