Our holiday was wonderfully comfortable, restful and peaceful.

10/10 in every aspect, Sykes as always were efficient and helpful in arranging and sourcing our holiday, candy cottage was very comfortable, peaceful, excellent location, fantastic views, the cottage had everything we needed and more, it was very refreshing that the owners were so keen to ensure we had the best hol, which we did, lovely little touches such as luxury bubble bath and honey and owners free range eggs, plus a little treat for our dog, we had the best holiday we ever had and truly didn't want to go home, we will be back for sure.

Cosy comfort for two

Very friendly welcome and with the essentials waithing for you, tea, milk, biscuits, eggs and local honey. Very comfy, just right for two. Bathroom was amazing. Modern kitchen area but small. Pub nearby but unusual opening times. Local railway line if you don't want to drive everywhere. Lots of local walks. Very quiet, just what we wanted.

Lovely little cottage

Excellent welcome, with good explanation of the facilities in the cottage. All decor and furnishings to a good standard and very comfortable. Staircase is a little steep, as warned, but all in all a lovely little hideaway at reasonable cost, with thoughtful little extras. Handy for most of Dorset and East Somerset. Quiet and relaxing to come back to, village pub had the builders in so was a bit squeezed but food and welcome good and they said they'd had the holidayers from this cottage just about every week since the cottage was first let.

Classy, cosy, charming, a place to revisit!

Before we even got to Candy Cottage we received a lovely card giving us directions and welcoming us to our home for the week. When we arrived we were greeted by a heavenly scent, a bunch of roses, some yummy treats and fresh laid eggs. The cottage is small but not uncomfortably so and every corner has been utilised in an imaginative way. The decor and furnishings are tasteful and in keeping with the charm of the place. We recommend a visit to The Sculptures by the Lakes at Tincleton, you do need to book online and it's not the easiest place to find but absolutely breath taking. The cider farm at Dawlish Wake was excellent too. It's ideal for a quiet romantic break for two.
