    “The cottage was utterly charming, clean, very well-equipped ( I only missed a large casserole for a bourguignon) and beautifully presented.”

    It seems churlish to carp but my wife and I did notice that some sort of blinds/awning/sunscreen system in the south facing conservatory would make this delightful sun-trap more usable in the baking summer heat. That said, it was an absolute pleasure, it made our (daughter’s graduation) week and we’d love to come back in the autumn.

    So glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your time visiting Otterton and the surrounding countryside and for taking the time to leave feedback it’s very much appreciated. There should have been a couple of casserole dishes at the cottage and I will check with our housekeeper to make sure they haven't been damagaed and not replaced. As to the conservatory thanks for the tip it is something that we will look into. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Property Owner

The property

In a pretty terrace in Otterton, looking over the village green, a Grade II listed, part thatched cottage.

Inside, an inspired choice of smart modern furnishings, quality fabrics and local artwork complement lovely original features with beams and some low lintels (from 5'8").

Glazed doors open to an enclosed, south-facing garden with level paved area (table/chairs) and steps climbing steeply up to lawned terraces (further seating) with views of the church and over rooftops to the village.

About the location

OTTERTON

Budleigh Salterton 3 miles; Sidmouth 3 miles.

Set back from the coast among the rolling green countryside and wooded valleys of beautiful East Devon, this pretty village with its collection of traditionally thatched roofed cottages is straight from a picture postcard. Offering a quieter but no less beautiful holiday destination than the rest of the county it’s the perfect place to relax and unwind, and is just 3 miles from the Regency coastal resort towns of both Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth, and one mile from the SW Coastal Path as it meanders above the waves towards the World Heritage Site ‘Jurassic Coast’ beaches with their abundant fossils. Ladram Bay with its red-stone sea stacks is just one mile away. Inland, footpaths follow the banks of the River Otter where fox, badger and birdlife play while just down the road from the village is Bicton Park and Botanical Gardens, 60 acres of garden lovers’ paradise. For a really interesting hour or two, visit the last working flour mill on the river Otter - it’s in the village and the flour is superb. There’s much to do and see in this beautiful and unspoilt area but if you want to explore further afield, the open spaces and high tors of Dartmoor can be reached in under an hour while the Cathedral city of Exeter with its superb shopping centre, cinemas, clubs and restaurants is a mere 10 miles.

Note: Some low lintels (from 5'8"). Church bell chimes on the hour.
