Arlington, Barnstaple, Devon, England
Hear birdsong, the bleat of sheep, the odd tractor, a whisper of breeze,
Silence.... with no background hum of traffic.
Marvel at the brilliance of stars in a truly Dark Sky......with no city glow to dim them

Tucked away down a private lane - in sight of Exmoor & 5 miles from the sea.
Our 5 acres of garden, woodlands & meadow offer a central base close to Arlington Court (N.T.), Wistlandpound Reservoir and Blackmoor Gate - the western gateway to Exmoor National Park.
A peaceful Holiday Cottage, away from holiday crowds, yet within easy reach of North Devon's famous surfing beaches, sandy coves, dramatic cliffs, glorious moorland and numerous visitor attractions.

The Old Farmhouse has been our well-loved family home for 25 years.
We hope it will feel like your home, during your stay.

Was made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived, This Farmhouse Cottage is within easy driving distance of the local beaches. We were 2 families staying for a week and enjoyed ourselves even if the weather didnt want to. Would recommend others if your looking for a nice quiet week away from the hussle and bussle of everyday life.

We had a fantastic time at Tiddicome House. We stayed for a week, 8 adults and 5 children (ages ranging from 9 months to 65 years). We were welcomed with tea & cakes on arrival. The house is amazing, plenty of room for all of us but the house also feels cosy and very comfortable. The bedrooms were all lovely...

We were extremely lucky that throughout the whole of our visit to Tidicombe the sun shone. But a more peaceful and relaxing environment to be during a sunny week I cannot imagine. Far from the madding crowd, but within a stone's throw from several places of great interest, the farmhouse is cradled by sweet smelling flowers, the Jasmin at the...
