We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this property.
Mr Bleaken September 2023
We had a wonderful holiday at Twitchers Itch. Our hosts were so kind and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Everything had been thought about to make our stay so lovely from the cream tea and dog biscuits on arrival to the DVD’s and games for us to enjoy. Our girls in particular loved the selection of books. Thank you for such a fantastic holiday! We cannot wait to come back!
Mr Nunns September 2023
Nice sized cottage in beautiful location with amazing views.
Village is short drive with well stocked shop, pub and chippy.
Even though there is a holiday let to the rear and one to the side, it is cleverly laid out so you still get your privacy when sitting on the patio admiring the view, in or out of the hot tub, with or without a drink!
Easy to get to Bude and Widemouth for seaside/cost path and Dartmoor for walks.
Mrs Hanger August 2023
Lovely place with stunning views. We enjoyed watching the swallows feeding and other bird life. Very peaceful and restful which is what I needed
Mrs Plater August 2023
We had the best holiday at Twitchers Itch . The house was even better than we had imagined it would be , it was fully equipped with everything you could want . Even a welcome basket with homemade scones , jam , cream and milk . It was a lovely little touch , the kitchen had everything and more you could need . Especially as a family with two children and a baby . Lovely travel cot , with bedding and a stair gate on both ends of the stairs . The hot tub was amazing and that view was one of the reasons we booked , it really is stunning . One morning the fog made it look like we were in the clouds . It was really beautiful . And the stars as someone had mentioned before are incredible on a clear night . We’ve never seen anything like it . The living room has a great bookshelf filled with educational books , story books for all ages and a great pair of binoculours . My boys spent ages using them . The house was incredibly clean , one of the cleanest I’ve stayed in actually . So peaceful and quiet , we really enjoyed ourselves and explored Cornwall , south and north Devon during our stay . We really hope to come back again , thanks again xx
Mrs Pearson June 2023
Lovely welcome with fresh flowers on the table and milk in the fridge. The owner had left us a delicious cream tea - the scones were homemade and the best we have ever tasted - many thanks. The cottage was spotlessly clean. Very dog friendly with doggie treats, bowl etc. Bridleway walks from the door which is ideal for dog walks if you do not want to drive. Close to Dartmoor. The views from the cottage are beautiful, loads of species of birds and a friendly squirrel who tapped on the patio door! Thanks to Nicola at Classic Cottages who went above and beyond to made the last minute booking experience so easy. We had a lovely stay at Twitchers Itch, a peaceful, relaxing retreat.
Mrs OBrien May 2023
This is the second time we have stayed here, and have also stayed in Fern Gully which is next door. The cottage is extremely clean and fully equipped and they allow up to 4 dogs which is quite rare. We have 3 and struggle to find cottages that allow this and that have fully secured gardens. The property is down a very quiet lane but accessible to lovely dog walks, the local shop and pub and Bude is about a 30 min drive. Bill and Caroline are amazing hosts and onhand if you have any questions. We love it there.
Mrs Mullick May 2023
The cottage was really perfect for my 4 young children! They loved the garden,the hot tub and the cupboard was full of great board games! Caroline and Bill had thought of it all even down to the dog towel for muddy paws! Can't fault it at all! Great location to enjoy both Devon and Cornwall! We will definitely go again ??
Ms Gwatkin April 2023
Thé cottage was lovely, very cosy and the welcome pack was very much appreciated we all loved the scones! The house was very well equipped. Only drawback was the weather for getting out and about but we enjoyed it all the same. If you love a rural setting it is perfect, the dog also enjoyed the enclosed space.
Mrs Manders-Carter January 2023
We took a break the end of January and it was perfect. It was cosy, extremely clean, great views and location and just what we needed. The owners were lovely and provided a lot of information in the welcome folder.
Mrs Robinson September 2022
Spacious, comfortable property with large secure garden which also benefits from 'off the lead' dog walking area on site.
Mrs Irvine August 2022
The cottage was lovely, with everything we needed. Lots of thoughtful extras: cream tea with home made scones waiting for us when we arrived, toys, games and DVDs for the children and a separate area with a table tennis table and table football. The hot tub was splendid after a day out too.
Mr Ford August 2022
Lovely cottage in a rural location. Very spacious. Loved the welcome hamper and little extras. Made use of the books, board games and DVDs in the rain. Hot tub was great. Parking for 3 cars. Games shed across the road. Very clean cottage with good communication from the hosts. Everyone was happy with the accommodation. I enjoyed my morning coffee at sunrise with gorgeous views of the countryside. Cottage was not far from Bude. Roadford lakes was also nearby and worth a visit. Would highly recommend this place.
Mrs Smith July 2022
Highly recommended. We had a wonderful stay. The cottage is set in beautiful tranquil surroundings. Hugely relaxing stay. The hot tub was fabulous. The home is very comfortable and well equipped. Lovely scones on arrival, fresh flowers were a lovely surprise. All the little extras really made the experience. We would definitely consider returning. The cottage owners were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble.
Mrs Pople June 2022
Lovely clean comfortable cottage in beautiful setting. Wonderful hot tub a real plus after a long day. Enclosed garden took the worry out of having a dog there. Everything excellent. Would certainly go there again.
Mr Jones May 2022
Lovely cottage in a fantastic area, the views are wonderful and it's so peaceful. The hot tub and log burner are great extras too. Would love to come back.

mr Trundley September 2021
The property was lovely and had everything you would need for you stay. The location was perfect for us it allowed for some brilliant star gazing and gave a truly relaxing feel to the break. The little touches left by the owners such as scones, cream, jam and a pint of milk for arrival added a lovely start to the holiday.

Very nice property with home from home comfort
Miss Summerfield June 2021
Charming, clean and beautifully decorated this cottage is a perfect place to stay. Situated in lovely surroundings, the views across the fields is amazing but a car would be needed to get out and about. We will definitely be returning
Mrs Avery June 2021
I was really impressed with the service I received from Classic Cottages and were super to deal with any time I telephoned them. We have not booked a cottage holiday for many years so was not sure what to expect but we had a super time in the cottage and the area was beautiful although we were really lucky with the weather being sunny all week.
Ms Todd May 2021
Lovely cottage with the most beautiful views - enjoyed to the full from the excellent hot tub! Enjoyed star gazing as no light pollution to spoil the sky and no traffic noise for a quiet night’s sleep!
mrs patel May 2021

Just got our week in before lockdown. Even though it rained each day we still had a great week. Visited the area, ate out in some great pubs. Would highly recommend this cottage as owners are wonderful and you want for nothing.

Mr Cleary September 2020
A beautiful cottage in the the beautiful Devonshire countryside. The cottage had all the comforts you would like including a wonderful hot tub. On arrival the cottage was find to be perfectly clean. The downside was leaving, we could of happily stayed forever.

Mr Batchelor September 2020
The property itself is in a lovely quiet area and having off road parking for at least 3-4 cars is welcome. The garden area is also dog friendly and secure with the gate closed. The hot tub was a welcome addition and proved very popular during our stay.
Having a welcome pack on our arrival was kind and all the kitchen cloths, etc were all brand new ready to use. Rubbish bags were also provided and good to see that recycling of rubbish was thought of with a bin provided, along with other bins for general rubbish and dog waste.
All in all a very well appointed property which was obvious to see that had had the personal touch added as the owners live only a short distance away. One of the owners, Caroline, introduced herself on the first morning and then checked the hot tub ph levels each day for safety purposes, but that was not a problem at all.
A very well appointed property which was immaculately clean on our arrival and very well laid out for a party of 6 people. A very enjoyable stay at Twitchers Itch!!!!!!!!!!!
Mrs Dacre September 2020
Perfect cottage, exceptionally clean and well equipped. One of the best we have stayed in over the years. Have already recommended to friends.
Mrs Allen August 2020
An absolute Gem such a relaxing break! The cottage was extremely clean and hottub ready to go on our arrival, and owner popped over to offer advice and give a welcoming face. The beds were made up with plenty of towels on the side. Plenty of room for our three boys to run about and a safe and beautiful back garden area. We didnt want to go home! We will come back!
Mr Hollingbery July 2020
A great stay at Twitchers Itch. Caroline was very welcoming and always happy to help with any questions. A great base to both explore Dartmour National Park and Widmouth beaches as well as a lovely quiet rural location to come back to or for quiet days. The hot tub and patio area with barbecue were particularly appreciated and made for a great stay overall!
Mr Beck July 2020
beautiful place - loved every minute.
Ms Carr March 2020
WoW, Our stay at Twitchers Itch was second to none, the cleanliness and standard of the cottage was the best I have ever experienced, I mean they even had a cake tin and rolling pin for those that want to enjoy baking or making a cake while on holiday. Not that I did but just having the essential items to do such was fabulous. The location is fabulous too, within a short drive of so many attractions, we are already planning our return visit, next time for longer. Trips to Bude and Bideford only a short drive away were very pleasant. The hospitality shown by Caroline and Bill were exceptional and while I didn't see them myself my sister who arrived first was met by them and had a full tour and explanation of all the cottage had to offer which I would like to add is a lot. The communication by text both before and after our stay was more than welcoming. I would highly recommend this cottage and Classic cottages as a company, who have been a great company to deal with. Once again thank you all concerned for making our trip one to remember, my 87 year old Mother was even in the hot tub at 11:30 pm with us girls. Thank you all once again. We will be back.
Mr Slim October 2019
We have just spent a fabulous week at Twitchers Itch. The cottage is spacious but also cosy and comfortable. It is ideally located for exploring this part of Devon and into Cornwall. Not too far from the coast, but also lots of countryside parks to explore. We arrived at the cottage to a wonderful welcome of a cream tea and scones. Imagine sitting in a beautiful hot tub overlooking a stunning view in complete privacy, wow. Would certainly like to visit again.
Our little dog Rosie also enjoyed a wonderful secure garden.
Mr Putman October 2019
Really enjoyed our break at Twitchers Itch. The Owners couldn't do enough to accommodate our needs. The property is very clean and well furnished. Great semi-rural location, with nice countryside views. Would happily stay here again.
Mrs Short October 2019
The cottage was wonderful. The owners had thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable. And the cream tea was a lovely surprise and delicious too! We had a great time and would definitely book again
Mrs Morgan September 2019
Fantastic cottage, cream tea on arrival was a lovely gesture as were the dog biscuits and dog towel, attention to detail was great. The hot tub was the icing on the cake! For a relaxing get away from it all break this cottage is a must.
Mr Hollingsworth August 2019
A very peaceful location with a relaxed atmosphere made for an easy and chilled holiday. Great views over the hills particularly from the hot tub! Caroline & Bill got the right balance between being ‘anonymous’ and available if needed which is sometimes difficult to do when you’re on the same site. They were very accommodating and relaxed. It felt homely and welcoming-we relaxed as soon as we arrived. I would come back to the cottage and recommend it.
Miss Marsh August 2019
Brilliant location, amazing cottage and great owners ......... a great holiday
Mrs McRae August 2019

Our dogs were welcomed and well catered for including treats! Lots of lovely walks in idillic countryside. The jam scones and cream left for us were a lovely surprise. We shall certainly be back.
Mrs Foster February 2019
We had a lovely stay at Twitchers Itch over the February half term. The rural location was idyllic and yet it was only a short drive to Dartmoor and Bude. We very much enjoyed the hot tub, the table tennis provision and the log fire. It was a comfortable cottage which we would be very happy recommending to friends.

We had a wonderful time at Twitcher,s itch. Bill and Caroline were very welcoming, with mince pies and cream on arrival as well as tea ,coffee and milk.and doggy treats for the dog. They even put a Xmas tree and decorations up, a lovely touch. The hot tub was brilliant. And the nice walks down by the lake. Would highly recommend this place to go for peace and relaxation. Will be returning in the summer.
Mr Taylor October 2018
Perefect on all counts, not to be missed. Every essential catered for; beautiful well stocked and lovingly decorated property, large hot tub with stunnning country views, dog friendly and fabulous large secure garden (with waiting doggie treats jar), real log burner with ample waiting logs and then the homemade scones, jam and clotted cream awaiting your arrival. The owners take pride in the property and ensuring you have a wonderful holiday, being friendly, attentive and discreet. For the kids the family games play barn topping off the luxury. And all that before you even start exploring the wonderful area and everything it has to offer. Would highly recommend.
