Twitchen House

Explore another Park

Our Park's hidden away in the trees with a historic Edwardian manor house at its centre.

Here you'll find we've substantially redeveloped almost every facility over the past couple of years so it's all pretty groovy and top notch. You might even forget you're near the sea, but turn the corner and wander through the woods and you'll find the vast sandy beach is temptingly close.

Accommodation at Twitchen House

Twitchen House Holiday Park is in a gently undulating position sheltered by mature trees so most of our self catering Holiday Homes are set on level or slightly sloping areas. We also have a limited number of Exclusive caravans with stunning front row sea views and our stylish Gold Woodland caravans have decking, an en-suite and luxury interior.

Our caravans are arranged in groups around the Edwardian manor house where you'll find all the Park's facilities.

How do I get to Twitchen House?

By Car
If you have a Sat Nav the postcode is EX34 7ES

From Junction 27 of the M5 take the third exit on the left hand and follow the signs for the A361 to Barnstaple approximately 34 miles away. The views from this road are amazing, as there are hills and trees as far as the eye can see, with the odd scatter of houses dotted around the rural landscape. Be aware of speed cameras situated on these open stretches of roads. Approximately 10 and a half miles from J27 you will come to Stoodleigh Cross where for about 10 miles onwards on the left, stags are often seen. Continue along this road until you arrive at the South Molton roundabout housing "The Northgate Inn".

At this point there is a choice of routes. If it is not a busy time it is easier to drive through Barnstaple by going straight over this roundabout and continuing along the link road. However, if it is busy and you don't want to get stuck in traffic then turn right at this roundabout and follow the A399 to Combe Martin; please note that this route is not suitable for touring caravans.

- If You Choose the A399
Turn right at South Molton roundabout and carry along this road, this tends to become very bendy so beware of slow moving tractors. You will come to The Old Station Inn at Blackmoor Gate, continue straight past and follow the road. Approximately 39 miles from the M5 you will see the Bristol Channel at Combe Martin Bay. Along this road you will come across the turn off to your left, sign posted Woolacombe on the B3343. Follow this road for 4 miles until you reach a junction known as Berry Down Cross, Turn left here. Beware of the sharp bend but follow it around to the right. Continue until you reach the petrol station situated at Lynton Cross Junction. Travel straight across the junction and follow the road till approximately 47 miles from the M5 you will reach Mullacott Cross Roundabout. Proceed straight across and follow the signs for Woolacombe.

- If You Choose the A361 towards Barnstaple
Follow the link road for about 30 minutes until you see the town of Barnstaple in front of you. Turn left at the 1st roundabout towards Bideford (as it will be faster than travelling through the town centre) and proceed along the A361 and turn right at the 2nd roundabout signposted A361 Ilfracombe. After a mile or so continue straight through the 2 sets of traffic lights on the roundabout and over the Taw Bridge, turn left when you reach the dual carriage way following the A361 through the villages of Braunton and Knowle until you reach Mullacott Cross Roundabout.

At the roundabout take the first exit which is the B3343 to Woolacombe, after 2 miles you will come to a Y junction. For Twitchen House Holiday Park take the right turn at the Y junction for Mortehoe, the Park is approximately 1.5 miles along this road on the left, after Woolacombe Bay Holiday Park.

We are happy to advise on the accommodation which is most suitable for your needs. We have two Gold caravans which have been specially adapted at Twitchen House for wheelchair users with assistance.

Some areas of the Park are hilly and some areas are fairly flat, so you may not be able to get from one side to the other without the use of a car if you have limited mobility. Please check with us for further information regarding the Park terrain.

We try to make our facilities and entertainment venues as easily accessible as possible, however you may find steps in certain areas. Where this is the case we will always have an alternative door for convenient access. Our team on the Park will be more than happy to help in any way that they can.
