Lovely place, we had a great weekend

The property was really nice, plenty of space and in a lovely quiet area. We'd definitely consider staying again when we're down that way.

Lovely quiet cottage in an ideal location

  • 4 of 5

Four of us stayed in the cottage for one week. The cottage was spacious and generally well kept. I did feel the kitchen lacked a couple of items and was a bit cluttered but this did not take away from the lovely holiday had by all.

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.

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.
