My husband was trapped working during the London Olympics, so what is a girl supposed to do??? We usually opt for country cottages, but this time I decided to try a farm style B and B with my georgeous 9mth golden retriever "Dora" and made a late booking. We had a fabulous week, despite some changable weather. Excellent breakfast, really nice clean and comfortable rooms (I tried 2 of them), loved the resident dogs and absolutely beautiful location, very peaceful and quiet. If you come with a dog try Hele Beach (just east of Ilfracombe) dog friendly and with good parking. Also, go to the excellent Old Mill for coffee and scones- tucked behind the garage.
Jaye and Helen are excellent hosts and make you feel very welcome. Information and facilities are excellent. I was very impressed and can recommend Twitchen farm to anyone trying to unwind from busy lives back home. Hilda (and Dora).
