Really enjoyed my 3 days stay at Twitchen Farm. My room was clean, well furnished with a comfortable bed. There was total silence at night which made my stay very relaxing. The cooked breakfast was excellent and together with proper filtered coffee, made a great start to the day. The owners put a lot of effort into making my stay...

Thank you for your review, I am pleased we were able to help out at the last minute, always worth a phone call. Yes the room you were in has a standard double bed, others have queen size. We are still open until the end of September so plenty of time to come and visit.

We stayed for three nights. Beautiful location and comfortable stay. Great for walks straight from the farm and great not to have to use the car. In the evening, you. Can have a great meal at the Black Venus, a short walk through the fields from the farmhouse. It's a pity the B and B will close in late September...

High standard of accommodation and dining room. We had a very nice double room with an interconnecting single room with a very large bathroom in between. The place is dog friendly which is great. The breakfast was also lovely. Surrounded by lovely countryside and a very nice pub a few mins away.

Thank you for your kind words. We've had a bit a snow in the last few days that has made for some lovely views if a mighty cold wind. We hope to see you again.

Short break for walking on the beautiful North Devon Coast. Friendly welcome, comfortable room on the ground floor, choice of wholesome food for breakfast. Good wifi and TV (who needs them!) and a lovely area to explore

I was offered a corner room with a view which turned out to be a view of the hedge...beyond which there was the car park. To make a cup of tea you will need to boil the kettle on the floor because the cord is too short. So is everything else, short: Breakfast, the hospitality the willingness to provide information....

Only stayed for one night as we were passing through but I had great memories of the lovely view, most cosy breakfast room (delicious food) Cute big doggie, hot chocolate in the room. Pretty room... nice walk through the farm with sheep roaming.... would go back again some day. The owners were extremely kind ladies too.
