Lord it up in the grounds of an elegant Edwardian manor house at this lively family park. Unfortunately it’s shanks’ pony rather than sedan chair to the beach, but the green fields and leafy woodland along the way will provide ample consolation.
Part of the award-winning chain of Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks, Twitchen House Holiday Park offers good pitches and a dizzying array of free facilities (guests also get access to the action at the other parks nearby).
Visitors can steam away their troubles in the sauna and steam room before a soaking in the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, or angle towards some coarse fishing. The little ones will enjoy the paddling pools, the cascading sun shower, and whizzing down the water slide; not to mention the crazy golf, bungee trampoline, table tennis, adventure playground, amusements arcade and all the free fun on offer at the kids’ clubs.
There’s a good programme of live entertainment acts in the evenings, plus a nightclub, restaurant, takeaway and supermarket on site.

Follow the quiet country lane winding out of Twitchen House to the former smugglers’ haunt of Mortehoe: it’s a pretty village of stone-built cottages, tea rooms, restaurants and pubs, less than a mile to the north of bustling Woolacombe. From the north side of Mortehoe, a short clamber down a steep cliff path will bring you to the secluded rock pools and sands of Rockham beach.
Surfers will want to check out nearby Croyde, which is world famous for its excellent waves. Even if you’re not a boarder, it’s a lovely place, with its sweeping sandy bay, thatched cottages, cafés and ice cream shops.
The Big Sheep will keep the kids amused with its sheep racing (complete with jockeys - please note that the bookies only accept ewe-ros), duck and sheepdog trials, and nursery barn, where they can feed and cuddle the baby animals. After all that fluff, they’ll probably want something a bit more hardcore: battle it out with laser guns in the forts and bunkers of Battlefield Live, or go next door to the high ropes course and mountain boarding centre (think snowboards with tyres).
All the attractions of Exmoor National Park are also close by, including the Exmoor Zoo, where visitors can see penguins, monkeys and big cats (don’t miss the infamous ‘Exmoor Beast’), feed the wallabies and handle some snakes and spiders.
