Loved this place. Travelled with 2 young children aged 4 and 18 months.
The location is ideally situated, just outside of Midleton town centre but within easy access as only 5 minutes away. The town centre has all the amenities you could wish for, with a tesco open until midnight every day so you can stock up the kitchen on arrival.
The Paddocks is located within the countryside with lovely views over rolling hills so the village is in a quiet setting.
There is a play area for the children, which my youngest enjoyed especially, as she cried when we got in the car and did not visit the play area!
The actual accomodation was superb. We stayed in one of their bungalows which we didn't know existed as they weren't on the website we booked through and we were overwhelmed with the size of it. A superb place. You enter through the porch into a massive lounge come diner off of which are 3 double bedrooms, 1 ensuite and an extra toilet/shower room. This then leads into a huge kitchen with all the facilities you require, fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave, cooker etc. A few instructions on how to use these facilities in the welcome pack would have been appreciated, but they were easy to work out for yourself. Also, some instructions on how to adjust the heating would have been nice too.
The kitchen leads into a sunroom which has a door leading on to a patio area with table and chairs and a washing line if you so wish to use. There is also ample parking out the front.
The staff were very accommodating providing us with a cot for our youngest and a highchair. the only thing that would have been nice would have been a few carpets as the whole house is wooden flooring which could be a little hard if your little one fell over , but on the upside it makes it easier to clean.
There are no plates, cups or cutlery suitable for young children so you may wish to bring some over with you, or buy some when you get there.
The TV selection wasn't great when we were over as they didn't have a strong enough aerial due to the change over to digital but they were looking to get satellites to improve this, so it may be worth bringing some DVD's to watch in the meantime.
Overall though our experience here was a very positive one and we will definitely look to go back again in the future. Thank you.
