We were visiting relatives in the area and booked Twitchen having stayed here before. We were not disappointed. The room was comfortable and the breakfasts exceptional. They would have kept us going until our evening meal if we didn't succumb to the cream teas! The best one by the way was in the Post Office in the Village. It was... More

A short drive (15mins) from the places we wanted to visit in Lynmouth and Lynton and we... More

Spent 3 lovely nights at Twitchen having visited numerous times over the last 10 years. Would never stay anywhere else when visiting Devon. Can't recommend highly enough, our two Labradors had a great time too! Great local pub (Black Venus Inn) walkable distance. What more can you ask?
