Despite the affordable prices there’s no shortage of activities to keep families occupied at any time of year. There’s a 36′ by 18′ outdoor heated swimming pool, including baby pool, which is open from May half term to September and for the benefit of parents is situated within a walled area. There’s also a games room with table tennis, pool, air hockey, table football and indoor sand play. Outside you’ll find plenty of space for a game of football or a run around, and there are also garden push along and toddler toys for the little ones. The gardens and grounds at Torridge House are home to a variety of animals and children are invited to help out with the daily feeding time; at the last count there were kittens, bunnies, guinea pigs, chicks, hens, ducks, mice and pigs! And if your children somehow manage to exhaust the activities on site, which seems unlikely, the golden beaches of Westward Ho! and Instow are only a twenty minute drive away.
