Find cottages in Torrington

Commanding spectacular views due to its elevated position above the River Torridge Valley, the market town of Torrington, in North Devon, welcomes all visitors warmly and boasts a host of attractions.

Also known as Great Torrington, this charming town is surrounded by rolling green countryside that has remained refreshingly unspoilt over the past 100 years. With delightful riverside walks and plenty of cycling paths meandering through the landscape, the area is truly perfect for enjoying the fresh open air. Indeed, the beautiful scenery here inspired Henry Williamson to write his famous novel, Tarka the Otter.

The town centre in Torrington has many traditional shops including bakers, butchers and craft centres selling local produce. Torrington also has one of the oldest pubs in the whole of North Devon, the 15th century Black Horse Inn. The town has a rich history and played an important role in the English Civil War. Visitors to Torrington today can learn more about this role by traversing the Civil War Trail, a short walking history of the town.

There are many more fascinating attractions to enjoy here, from the relaxing to the energetic. Active visitors will love Survival Paintball and Laser, set in 20 acres of woodland. For a more serene experience, try a trip to the world-famous Dartington Crystal visitor centre or the rather unique Barometer World Exhibition, with its unusual collection of weather predictors.

If you wish to experience the warmth of one of the most welcoming towns in the country, consider staying in Torrington holiday cottages for your next holiday.

    "Deep in Tarka the Otter country where the river glides beneath the trees and time stands still..."

    Orford Mill lies alongside the River Torridge in a beautiful wooded valley, nestled below the historic town of Torrington. With its air of peace and tranquillity, abundant wildflowers and river life, it became the setting for Henry Williamson’s magical story of Tarka the Otter. Indeed, the mill wheel in which Tarka hid from the hound Deadlock was at Orford Mill. This superb location makes a wonderful holiday base, especially for families, with sandy beaches on the North Devon coast only 10 miles away.
    The complex consists of a Grade II listed water mill and manor house, now converted into nine delightful cottages, all equipped to Visit Britain ‘4 Star’ standard. Most overlook the charming ornamental courtyard with its ponds and flowerbeds. Riverside is detached and overlooks the river. All cottages retain character features such as exposed beams and stonework, and each is furnished in an individual style to a very high standard. Guests can enjoy an indoor heated swimming pool, with lovely river views, as well as a spa room and all-weather tennis court, games room and fenced outdoor children’s play area. There is an on-site cafe with wi-fi (open 9am-9pm). In addition, fishing rights are available on 200 yards of river (bring own licence, or avail locally at cost). All the waterways are safely fenced.
    The countryside around Orford Mill is dotted with sleepy villages nestled among the hills, while extensive woodlands, traversed by many footpaths, offer the chance to experience the area’s natural beauty at close quarters. Adjacent to the grounds are the renowned RHS gardens at Rosemoor, and other local attractions include Dartington Crystal, offering a factory tour and visitor centre. Great Torrington is only a mile away with good shopping and amenities, and there is golf at nearby Hartland. Orford Mill adjoins Torrington Common which extends to 365 acres, incorporating 20 miles of footpaths. The common is a haven for wildlife. The ‘Big Sheep’ and ‘Milky Way’ theme parks are each less than 10 miles away.
    The River Torridge runs downstream to the ancient port of Bideford, still with a working quay offering boat trips out to Lundy Island. Just around the corner is the attractive little town of Appledore with its colourful houses and narrow streets. To either side lies Devon’s most spectacular stretch of coastal scenery – a chain of magnificent cliffs and rocky promontories, interspersed here and there by long flat sandy beaches, where the Atlantic breakers roll in to create ideal surfing conditions. There are splendid beaches at Instow and Westward Ho!, the latter bordered by the Royal North Devon Golf Club, and the Northam Nature Reserve. Further west is the supremely picturesque Clovelly, whose narrow, cobbled main street descends at a dizzying gradient to the little harbour below. To the south, the cathedral city of Exeter can be reached via a delightful drive through lush river valleys.
    Orford Mill offers very attractive accommodation set in 3 acres of beautiful gardens with streams, waterfalls and the water wheel which is still operational. Excellent as a touring base, it makes a good choice for a holiday whatever the weather. Shop ½ mile.

    This two-storey cottage, adjacent to the swimming pool, has a private decked balcony with lovely views over the river. Beamed living/dining room with wood burner and French doors to balcony. Well-equipped modern fitted kitchen. Two beamed bedrooms with doors to balcony; one double with en-suite bathroom with double ended whirlpool/airstream bath (for 2 persons) and toilet, one twin with TV.
