Plenty of room in the family room so did not feel at all cramped. Breakfast made to individual order with no long wait. Around the farm has great walks which were... More

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

We booked Twitchen farm after researching the Exmoor tourist information site and then looking up on TripAdvisor. The booking process was smooth and we received a quick confirmation of our queries and booking. On arrival knew the location was perfect for our visit. 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?

We were lucky enough to be the only visitors and the kids made the most of it by breakfasting like kings every morning, try the Hogs pudding if poss. Beds were really comfy and the dog soon made friends with poacher and Perro. We didn't know the area well and they gave us some great visit tips including Heddons Mouth... More

A wet week in November and the only guests, but am welcome and excellent quality breakfasts. Exmoor was lovely and more varied terrain than other similar moors and wild places with very much better access to all parts albeit down some lovely narrow steep lanes. The fords were plentiful but passable except for that at Tarre steps which was a... More
