We were a large party that stayed in The West Wing at Duddings Cottages. Not disappointed at all, children loved all that they had on site. Plan to return. West Wing suited us all & Richard was a great host. S. - West Wing - Sept 2023

Thank you so much for such a lovely stay, the children and all the adults had a ball !  The weekend was perfect and it's an ideal place to stay with children. They loved the ponies and the pool.  KD - Stables - Sept 2023

Thank you for our stay, all the children absolutely loved staying in the cottage, swimming and adventuring the grounds. What a lovely property you have !   SR - Stables - Aug 2023

My son and I had a fabulous time this week and will be back.  RH - Bilbrook - Aug 2023

Just to say a big THANK YOU for allowing us to stay in the holiday cottage Selworthy sleeping 11. The whole family had a fantastic time, We played hide & seek late in the evening, enjoyed the pool & games room plus tennis so much everybody wants to come back, The location & views are fantastic. Faultless.  RA - Selworthy - Aug 2023

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Duddings in July 2023. There were 25 of us - a big family group ranging from 70 years old to 2 (12 children and 13 adults). We took the Stables and the West Wing. The accommodation suited our needs - country cottages with plenty of toilets/bathrooms and three kitchens between the two houses. Lots to do on site. We enjoyed the swimming pool and games room and also the trampoline and paddock and the outdoor play area. The kitchens were well equipped and we were able to seat all 25 of us for dinner in the Stables after a bit of reorganisation. Outside there were tables with parasols. There were barbecues at each house.  Richard sorted out any minor problems we had. Each house had dishwashers and tumble driers and washing machines. The smaller children loved dancing to Alexa BS - Stables & West Wing - July 2023

Fab cottage for 16 people. Clean & well equipped.  LJ - Stables - Jul 2023

Stayed in 'The West Wing' for a week - a large cottage that accommodated our family of 12. The building is quirky but homely with lots of space inside and a communal area outside, as well as shared spaces and facilities across the site. Our boys loved the swimming pool and games room..  RS - West Wing June 2023

I just wanted to say thank you so much for a lovely weekend at Duddings. West Wing was like a home away from home, it had everything we needed andf was the perfect space for 12 people - room to be together and to get away from each other too ! The outside space was perfect and we played many board games under the shade of the umbrellas.
Your grounds are beautiful and we really enjoyed the games room, trampoline & tennis court. The pool was the highlight for my children - what a lovely sized pool - they had a hiuge amount of fun in it.
Duddings far exceeded our expectations. Thank you and I am absolutely sure we will be back.  KD - West Wing - June 2023

Thank you for a wonderful stay - the cottages are beautiful and we have had a lovely week & the boys really enjoyed the swimming pool.  CC - Allerford & Bossington - Apr 2022

Had a lovely few days with our whole family (including dogs) in this beautiful part of Exmoor. We arrived a bit earlier than expected and the owner kindly let us move in to the cottage a few hours before the check-in time. The accommodation was fantastic with a well equipped kitchen. The pool and games room were great too and kept the kids occupied for hours. On the last day storm Eunice hit and we were kept safe by our centuries old stone cottage. The owners checked that we were all OK and provided us with candles and hot water for tea / coffee. We would love to come back again in times of less extreme weather!  EC - Bossington Feb 2022

Thank you very much for a thoroughly enjoyable stay. AL - Annexe - Jan 2022

We had a lovely week - the cottage and location are great as a base for exploring Exmoor and North Devon, and we all loved the facilities - games room and pool - for some relaxation. EC. Annexe - Aug 2021

An excellent venue, well presented, good value for money, well located for day trips around Somerset and Devon - both more gorgeous than we expected. The resort has an excellent information centre, a games room, pool and space to breathe and relax.    GB    Bilbrook - June 2021

Amazing place. Kids had such a great time feeding the ponies, playing on the trampoline and in the games room. The swimming pool was great especially having the whole pool to ourselves for an hour. CH   Luccombe - June 2021

Nice touch to have tea and coffee as well as delicious biscuits on arrival. Site facilities are great whether you have children or not. On site pool, games room with table tennis, pool and football table a great hit, trampoline great size for older children and tennis court a plus. Just some things to while away the hours. Also Echo/Alexa installed for playing music. The gardens are kept in lovely condition with paths run to various activity areas. Shetland ponies in the fields are an additional extra that kids young and old enjoy watching. House was clean and had all necessary appliances in good working order. We enjoyed our stay as a family of 6 with a 13 week puppy!     IH   Withycombe - June 2021

I had a nice experience in The Annexe. I really recommend this place.*****   JQ   Annexe - Apr 2021

Despite the current restrictions, really appreciated the 'timed slot' approach so that it was possible to use the indoor pool. Nice new oven and hob in the apartment too and the heating system worked very efficiently despite the stone walls so that even with overnight frosts the apartment was always warm.    JS    Cleeve - Apr 2021

This place was unbelievable, it  was so beautiful, the view, the inside of the cottages, everything. Had such a lovely time with my husband & kids there. SB - Oct 2020

We stayed in Horner which proved to be ideal for the two of us. The views were excellent and Horner is very handy for getting to the excellent swimming pool and the car park. The weather was brilliant and we really appreciated being able to book the pool for one hour private sessions. It was also useful to have a washer/drier in the cottege. The armchairs were very comfortable and we also found the bed very comfortable and slept really well. We received a very warm welcome on arrival.  We will certainly return again.  JP    Horner - Sept 2020

Lovely extensive grounds, with friendly Shetland ponies, hourly pool slots so Covid friendly, perfect location.  JL.   Bossington - Sep 2020

Very nice to have plenty of outdoor space and the ponies plus the pool was a huge benefit after a long walk. Overall nice little property and they are not on top of each other. Great food at the Lion Inn at Timberscombe just down the road.  NM.    Allerford - Sep 2020

Just a quick note to say thanks or a fabulous and relaxing week at Duddings !  The pool arrangement worked really well for us.

Had the best of times here celebrating a friends 50 th ... clean/tidy bedrooms were all fab ...with use of jacuzzi and swimming pool area surrounding is beautiful ... hoping to return   SD     2019

Just returned from a family two week holiday in West Wing. Stayed as a family of 12 with four children ranging from 2 to 10. Also took our two dogs, who loved the walled garden and looking over to say hello to anyone passing.Something for everyone to enjoy, from feeding carrots to Freddie and Phoniex the pony’s, trampoline, games room, tennis, play field, and especially the heated indoor pool and hot tub. The cottage was large and well laid out, with everything you could want. Beds comfy all had a good nights sleep.The owners were very friendly but left you alone unless you needed them and then they were readily available. Some spiders and cobwebs ,but to be expected in a thatched 16th century long house but didn’t spoil a lovely family holiday. We all agreed we would definitely return.   SD     West Wing - 2019

We had a wonderful time staying in the West Wing at Duddings for a school friend reunion. The space was more than adequate for 11 adults and was wonderfully cosy with the log burner and brilliant to be able to make use of the swimming pool and hot tub. Close to many local attractions including Lynmouth and Dunster, with good pubs nearby too. Excellent value for money - we will be back!  EF    West Wing - 2019

Fabulous...we had a great weekend...pool was brilliant for grandchildren and adults alike...much fun was Had playing pool and table tennis...and the West wing was a perfect setting for a relaxing family time to eat drink and celebrate a special birthday....many many thanks     CF     West Wing - Mar 2019

Just back in London after a short break in Duddings. The cottage was really comfortable and cozy, with a great view of the shetland ponies and valley. Shame about the drizzle, but we had a great time, and made the most of the swimming pool and hot tub - very necessary after the long walks on the moor!   TM     Horner - Apr 2019
