About the Owner
About Richard Jones
Our business is a family run business. We believe in providing the personal touch. So much holiday accommodation has become over commercialised whereby you often end up in a accommodation where you never get the chance to meet the owners.
We aim to meet and greet all of our guests and we make ourselves available for any questions at any time. By being available, we are also able to resolve any problems that may arise as soon as possible and offer local advice when needed.
We aim to make our guests stay as comfortable as possible and a high proportion of our visitors return year after year.
If you are looking for a comfortable, peaceful and relaxing stay, with the knowledge that someone is always on hand to help make your holiday as enjoyable as possible, then look no further.

Why Richard Jones chose Torridge
It is simply stunning. On a clear day you can see the hills of Dartmoor. Quiet yet so convenient for exploring North Devon. No light pollution at night. The stars are so bright. Why choose anywhere else?

Halcyon Cottage, Stowford Lodge
Have just returned from a weeks stay in Halcyon Cottage, Stowford Lodge and had a lovely time. Location is great for getting out and about and the cottages themselves are located in a very quiet area. The play area and the pool were both a great hit with our girls (aged 2 and 4) and there was a huge safe field for them to run around. Fresh eggs from the hens and washing facilities on site all contributed to a great holiday. We are likely to return. Amanda and Adrian
