Smytham Manor is a family run park situated 2 miles south of Great Torrington on the A386 Okehampton road. The Park is centrally located for exploring the whole of North Devon, or even further afield. Dartmoor is only half an hour away, and Westward Ho! beach is just twenty minutes by car.
You will approach Smytham along its private driveway which runs between fields and is partly hedged with Rhododendron and lined with Beech, Oak and Chestnut trees, then the Park’s twenty three acres of landscaped grounds will open out before you.
Contained in its own secluded valley the grounds consist of extensive grass areas with attractive shrubberies which extend towards the woodland ponds where you can always find a peaceful spot to just sit and enjoy nature.
With the low density Holiday Home development occupying a small proportion of the Park, there is plenty of open space for recreation.
The Park offers a solar heated outdoor swimming pool and sun patio sheltered within the old walled garden. For the children there is a games room, outside play equipment, and outdoor games Kid's can even bring their bikes to enjoy all the open space.
Further afield there is lots to do within easy reach, golf courses, fishing, horse riding and water sports to name a few, as well as walking and cycling from the park on the Tarka Trail. Your evening can be completed in the new bar with its welcoming and friendly atmosphere. or just sit out and enjoy the relaxing peace that is Smytham Manor.

Stayed in Nikki's caravan with our Labrador Chester, although weather wasn't brilliant it didn't stop from having a lovely holiday, the caravan was exceptionally clean and had everything you could have needed. It's probably the best caravan I have stopped in for a long while, so quiet and friendly people, we loved it so much we have re-booked for 2020 can't wait.
Thank you Janet for taking the time to write such a lovely review. I do try to make it a home from home experience. Hopefully the sun will shine for you this year.

This lady, Nikki goes way beyond expectation in making her caravan welcoming & homely with so many “extra” touches - we were absolutely delighted to stay in such a clean well equipped and comfortable caravan. Unfortunately our week went past way too quickly! The caravan is ideally situated on Smytham with beautiful outlook, and just across the grass area you have gorgeous woodland walk area which Jack (dog) loved. Such a relaxing site, no noise at all from neighbouring caravans, it was exactly what we needed. Cannot recommend highly enough. This is self catering with a difference! All you need to bring with you is yourself and family members, your personal toiletries, food and clothes. Dont make the mistake I did of taking cleaning essentials & cloths as u will not need them! I even took a couple of my sharp knives with me, as have been caught out before and struggled all week with blunt knives to cut veg etc - not needed here as an abundance of quality, sharp kitchen knives for your use. Nikki has thought of EVERYTHING to ensure your comfort and well being and it is a real “home from home” will not hesitate to make contact here first when/if we decide to return to Devon. Thankyou very much Nikki xx
Wow, thank you so much Linda. It does make me all gooey inside when I get good feedback. Customer Service is EVERYTHING to me and hopefully you felt the warmth of my welcome without being too much. You are always welcome and glad Jack enjoyed himself too. Welcome back anytime. The caravan was spotless which is always appreciate as the next guests can get in early too. Thanks for choosing us, see you again soon.

A quick letter to let you know how much we enjoyed the week in your caravan we were very impressed of how clean and well equipped it was even down to salt and vinegar. We know now only to bring ourselves,clothes and food everything else is there.it was great that we could leave the door open so gizmo could wander in and out as he wished. Nikki and her family were very friendly and helpful can’t wait to return next year thanks Nikki x
Many thanks for taking the time for this review. Making my guests feel welcome is very important to me. Hopefully see you all again next year.

We felt that we must write and say how much we thoroughly enjoyed staying in this caravan. The owner had gone to great lengths to make it feel very much like a 'Home from Home' and make our holiday special. Everything essential item was on hand, the beds were very comfortable, the hot water system (showers, washing up etc) were excellent. On the one chilly evening the heating system soon made us feel cozy (again just like home). The open far reaching views from the caravan are second to none on this site. The outside enclosed decking area was very private and offers a choice of seating for outside dining etc. The enclosed area also allowed our two dogs to freely roam or just sit in the fresh air. We can't recommend this caravan to highly to anyone who wants to stay in this part of Devon. Excellent, well done! A return trip is certainly planned.
Thank you Mel for taking to time to write this review. It means a lot to me personally that you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully you loved it as much and I do and it didn’t feel like “just another rental”.

A wonderful, comfortable and relaxing holiday thanks to the owners homely touches. Nikki is bubbly, friendly and accommodating making the whole transaction easy and smooth. The caravan is clean, warm, well-equipped, spacious yet cosy making the entire week a joy. Good weather meant we could enjoy the outside furniture and space in complete safety for my Spaniel within the enclosed balcony, and he enjoyed lovely walks up to the dog exercise field with pretty views. This caravan choice does not disappoint, we will definitely recommend to others and be returning again ourselves. Thank you Nikki we could not have asked for more... an absolute pleasure for us, especially to be able to relax and enjoy with my dog, Maka.
Many thanks Dawn. It's lovely for me to hear this feedback. You're all most welcome to come back anytime. Thanks again.

We have just come back from a fantastic week at this caravan and it is so much more than I had hoped for. The caravan itself is spacious, in a quiet location, lovely friendly well stocked shop on site and lots of little things to do in the games room and park. It was so nice to have a safe place for our little furry friend to be free on the decking whilst we were inside. She and the children also enjoyed all the walking and exploring we have done. The caravan can get cold if you leave the door open in this weather (as we did for the dog) but as soon as it is shut and the heating is on it is a dream place to be. We have had a lovely time and enjoyed the quiet family time. The DVD's and games that were left were a great bonus too. Especially playing the game of life. We haven't played this in years and had great fun. Overall the trip was a huge success and thankyou for providing us with a fantastic place to make memories. We will definitely be visiting again soon. Maybe as soon as the Summer holidays!! Mrs H
Hi Mrs H, Many thanks for your kind words. So lovely to hear that your week was comfortable. That's what we aim for. A complete home from home experience. Don't forget to take advantage of the 10% discount should you wish to return at anytime, we'd be glad to have your family and your little furry friend again.
