We happen to think we're rather charming, and it's not our manor house setting that's gone to our head. Hidden away in the trees with lots of woodland walks, one leading to the beach, our Park's got a lovely laidback mood.
Twitchen is old Devonian for the crossing of two paths and you'll get the best of both worlds at this leisurely Park. You might even forget you're just 20 minutes’ walk to Britain's best beach, because our Devon Holiday Park is in the woods it's a bit different, but turn the corner to wander through the well tended National Trust land connecting us to the South West Coast Path 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 caravan Holiday Homes are set on level or slightly sloping areas.
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 Holiday Park?
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.

- 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.
