    It is only open certain times throughout the summer but it is well worth a visit. Interesting history to the hoyse. Lovely gardens and delicious teas

    Well kept grounds and well informed talk by Catherine which lasted a little over 75 minutes. Cream tea with a single small scone was enjoyed in the cafe garden. Fernery is a lovely spot and the main lakeside walk takes about 40 minutes to complete with plenty of ducks and wildlife to see along the route.

    The Finlake Falls complex is great. The staff on reception and life guards were really helpful and human! a trait not often seen on a few holiday resorts we have been too. The changing rooms and pools were very clean and cleaners were often seen around ensuring it was spotless. The only downpoint if their booking system. The system to book the swimming is cumbersome and not user interactive, if you have an of number in your party you need to round up just to book the swimming - you cannot go back in and amend a booking or cancel - it makes the system pretty useless to be honest - I don't know how it will cope during peak times. For all its positives - the headache of booking etc takes a dot from 5 down to 4. However the Falls is worthy of more

    I put in the postcode, into my sat nav, for this place and I was taken to a dead end in Haldon Forest. I had to go back to an office and ask someone. I arrived in a place where people were riding on segways and bicycles. The man looked at his mobile phone and then told me that his boss lived in Chudleigh. I had to wait for a few minutes before his boss came in. He knew exactly where it was and gave me directions. When I arrived, there was a couple standing outside with a housemaid and a male member of staff. I was able to park the car outside and I was told they were waiting for more people. Another couple turned up, after me. But, though they were still waiting for another person, the tour started five minutes early. We were taken into the hall and up the stairs, where the tour guide struggled to remember who was married to who in the paintings on the wall. The missing person, which was another man, turned up and the tour guide had to say the same thing again. We then went back down and along the hallway, whilst he pointed out the paintings. He then apologised by saying the tour was over. We went into another room, which had a long table and chairs round it. We were then offered tea, cake and biscuits. We were allowed to look at the empty swimming pool, which was in another room behind us, and got told that the owner was thinking of turning it into a ballroom. I believe more rooms could have been opened to the public and they could have produced a guide book on the history of the house and family. I really don't recommend anyone going here, unless they improve, as the tour lasted about ten minutes or so.

    We found this in passing and visited on a rather dull, damp autumn day which of course does not show any garden at its best. The family that own and run the place were really friendly and informative. The 'rock walk' is rather challenging but worth the effort as the view from the top is amazing. The house and gardens must have once been very beautiful but have fallen into a rather shabby state but are nonetheless interesting and worth a visit. The cafe and gift shop on site is also worth a stop - great coffee and really reasonably priced home cooked food.
    Not recommended for small children as the paths and cave access are tricky and the site being part of an old disused quarry there are a lot of slip and trip hazards. Please visit if you are in the area and support this hard working family as they really love this place and want to be able to bring it back to its former glory.

    Finlake Riding Centre… the happiest place on Earth (and I’ve been to Disneyland!) Greeted by happy horses looking for a fuss and stroke. Fabulous staff always friendly, helpful and incredibly accommodating. The horses are loved, safe and reliable. Then there’s the stable life with always something going on, be it the cats playing, the dogs wanting you to throw a ball, the ducks splashing in the pond or the chickens strutting about. Riding around the tracks and paths of the Park, you can tell the horses love their jobs, always with pricked ears and a willingness to walk on. They have a lovely work-life balance, with plenty of time grazing in the fields with the herd. Seeing youngsters in for starting and competition horses for schooling shows how trusted this yard is amongst the horsey community, and what a fabulous start for them to experience the bustle of a working stables. There aren’t many places that offer such opportunities as FRC in the area, and it is truly a wonderful place to have the horsey experience. They offer something for everyone and every ability. Cannot recommended this stable enough.

    First time visiting Finlake holiday park for a couples relaxing weekend break. I treated my husband to a deep tissue massage for his birthday. He found the experience both professional & outstanding. His masseuse was Martina who he highly recommends. She was extremely knowledgeable & friendly & on our next return we will both be booking Martina again.

    This memorial was built in gratitude to the men of Cudleigh who fell in the two world wars. The monument features a small Latin cross surmounting a large square plinth, almost outsized compared to the size of the cross.
