Our review of Torridge House Cottages


Torridge House Cottages is a family friendly complex of self catering cottages based on a farm in the north Devon countryside, near the tiny village of Torrington. There are a total of nine cottages of different sizes, from two bedroom properties sleeping four people up to a four bedroom cottage sleeping 8 plus cot and toddler bed, and some cottages can be joined together to accommodate larger groups. At Parent Friendly Stays we think the prices at Torridge House provide excellent value for money, with a week-long holiday for a family of four at peak season costing under £900. Off-peak you can find the same holiday for as little as £400.


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 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, pigs and rabbits! 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.


Mums and dads will benefit from the well equipped cottages at Torridge House including cots, highchairs, stair gates and cutlery. The gardens and cottages are mostly surrounded by fields and private woodland with no public access, providing you with a safe and private place to relax. Family pets are welcome at some of the cottages (check before you book) and there’s free WiFi in most cottages, plus usage of a shared computer. You can also take advantage of chef home cooked chilled meals which you can order in advance, there’s an experienced therapist living nearby if you fancy treating yourself to a massage or treatment, and next door is a craft pottery for painting, clay work and potting on potters’ wheels.


Torridge House Cottages appear to offer the perfect family friendly combination of facilities for all ages, which combined with a great location and incredible prices means you’re guaranteed to enjoy a fantastic Devon family holiday!
