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.

Sorry for this belated review. My husband & I have stayed quite a few times now at this delightful place. It makes a wonderful base for exploring Exmoor. We have always been made to feel really welcome and the breakfasts are second to none, all being freshly cooked to order. The rooms are extremely pleasant and the beds very comfortable....
