The Paddocks


This romantic cottage offers a luxurious escape. Perfect for a romantic break or UK honeymoon, The Paddocks was designed for total relaxation amid the lush hills of North Devon.

With a five-star gold rating, you can expect the finest features at this luxury holiday cottage. Unwind in the two-person Jacuzzi style round tub or the glorious walk-in shower before sinking into Egyptian cotton bedding in your king-size bed. French doors lead out to a private patio area, with a barbecue and sun loungers for a lazy summer's day. In the winter, snuggle up in front of the cosy fire on comfy recliner sofas. 

We want you to experience the very best of North Devon, so indulge in a complimentary Devonshire cream tea when you arrive. Fine-dining restaurants are dotted throughout the area, but if you fancy staying in for dinner, our executive chef and his team would be happy to cook a delicious menu just for you at the cottage. As well as the exclusive private dining option, we can also arrange pampering treatments. Our experienced masseur can visit you at The Paddocks by appointment, for the ultimate relaxing holiday.

Just a five-minute walk away, the South West Coast Path stretches along North Devon's spectacular sandy beaches and rugged cliffs. Whatever the season, this beautiful part of the country has something magical about it. In the spring, meadows and forests come to life, while in the winter, the craggy coast looks at its most romantic. For beach days, Westward Ho! is just moments away, while the renowned surfing beach of Croyde and Woolacombe's famous golden sands are also nearby.

Our friendly team are always at hand to help with any little extras. If you want champagne and flowers waiting for you at the cottage on arrival, just let us know. Couples with babies looking for a luxurious family break are also most welcome. We can provide travel cots with memory foam mattresses and high chairs at no extra cost, so you don't have to worry about carrying bulky items.
