Wonderful relaxing break!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was immaculately clean, spacious and in a good location. My son went horse riding a couple if times and the staff were excellent at the riding school.

The weather wasn't warm enough to use the pool but it looked nice and we hope that when we go next time we will get the opportunity to swim.

The cottage had everything you need and for a family of four, it was perfect.

Absolutely lovely in every way:- clean, comfortable beds and sofas, big spacious rooms, marvellous quiet location and in a good position to visit many places of interest including the Eden Project and the house was very well equipped too. Very friendly owner. Highly recommended.

Great holiday experience.

  • 4 of 5

I would recommend Tiddlers Paddock to anyone wanting a relaxing comfortable holiday.The swimming pool was a great plus having my teenage daughter with me,it kept her busy while I relaxed. There is a cafe just through the pool area(which by the way is completely private)so if you dont feel like cooking just pop in for some well prepared food.The beach at exmouth is just down the road and a great day out for body surfing. Exmouth is also great if you are having withdrawels from city living and want to shop. when you are finnished it's great just to sit quietly by the pool on the sun beds provided. I will definately be back for two weeks next June. My dogs in tow.Thanks Sandra

Happy Days

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a super week at Tiddlers Paddock. The property is very characterful and in a peaceful location. It has a wonderful bright open plan lounge, comfortable sofa and armchairs, well equiped kitchen and dining area and views over the outside patio to the tiddlers paddock. We spent time on the beach rather than in the swimming pool but it was warm and inviting. The property is very well maintained with books, games and a pool table for those indoor periods but it is located close by lovely heath and costal walks as well as the resort towns. The owners were charming and we would certainly recommend a stay here and hope to return.

Very lovely property

  • 4 of 5

Had a very nice week staying in Tiddlers Paddock, very nicely appointed cottage with everything there that you need. Lovely upstairs sitting room, kitchen/diner looking out onto horses, and a terrace. Bedrooms comfortable and the property was very clean and well-maintained.

Only one negative I would say is because the bedrooms are mainly downstairs and the doors (being all stone floors) slam very loudly, which if there people in the next door property you can notice them. But I wouldn't say it caused a problem.

Excellent location only a couple of miles from Budleigh, with restaurants and pubs and lovely beach. Spent a couple of days on dartmoor and at Paignton Zoo, as well as the coastal villages. Had a lovely, relaxing week with fab weather!! Also got my non-riding boyfriend on a horse riding over the heath, on very safe horses.

Would definitely return again.

Autumn break

  • 5 of 5

We have much enjoyed a quiet 3 night break in Tiddlers Well, a warm, comfortable and excellently appointed house. The beds were top of the range and so comfortable.

It was so convenient for Exeter and the surrounding areas.

Chrissy and Barbara were very welcoming and we hope to come again.

I agree that a Visitors' Book would be a good idea.
