About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4

Jacketts is an old cob farmhouse in a fantastic location on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Otterton. Now divided into two cottages Jacketts 2 makes a deceptively spacious and well appointed home away from home. It has a delightful Conservatory, ideal for those lazy breakfasts while the combined sitting/dinning has an Inglenook with modern gas log burner to warm any chilly nights. Upstairs the double bedroom has a lovely antique solid oak bed originally from Fineshade Abby and a modern semi ensuite shower room. The twin bedroom has its own charm with more antique furniture. For a candle lit bath or the practicality of bathing the children the bonus of a downstairs bathroom gives that added flexibility.

The cottage is ideally situated for exploring the East Devon coast with fantastic local walks along the cliffs and nearby river while for the children there is everything from sandy beaches to adventure parks. This is picture postcard country and the ideal holiday home!

Eating out: The nearest place to eat out is just a few hundred yards away at Otterton Mill. This a working mill where you can see the grain being milled before buying the freshly baked bread or other local delights. The mill has an excellent licenced restaurant for lunch or afternoon tea, as well as a gallery and gift shop where the hidden talent of some of our local artists can be seen. The local pub is also very good but in the next village of East Budleigh there are two excellent pubs for food. In nearby Sidmouth there are a variety of modern wine bars, great restaurants and several old traditional pubs to choose from. Tearooms for the essential 'Devon cream tea' are too numerous to mention and in Budleigh Salterton you can find some of the best Ice cream in Devon.

Warm, comfortable, fully equipped, cottage

This charming cottage is in a quiet position in a delightful village. It is a complete home from home including a great selection of books and games. The bedrooms and living rooms are enormously comfortable.

All you need. A great find!

Longer next time !

  • 5 of 5

It was a very short visit but such a good one. The cottage was welcoming and comfortable and very well located. We found everything in good order and well organised. Fortunately the weather was lovely so we were able to explore the local area. The walks from the house were a delight.

Would like to return for longer sometime in the future

Lovely little cottage in a quiet village

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in the Easter holidays here. The cottage is well equipped with a lovely conservatory and small garden to enjoy the warm evenings. From the start the owner was very helpful with communications, and we enjoyed our visit.

Sunny Devon

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage in a really pretty village. Spacious and well equipped, we loved sitting in the garden or conservatory at the beginning or end of the day, enjoying the sunshine and birdsong.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Exeter at 25 Miles Nearest Barpub : Kings Arms pub at the end of the Road, a 4min walk at 0.2 Miles Nearest Golf : East Devon Golf Club at 4.8 Miles Nearest Train : Exmouth at 8 Miles Nearest Motorway : Exeter at 13 Miles Nearest Restaurant : The Mill is open for lunch & cream teas, 5min walk at 0.2 Miles Nearest Beach : Both Pebbly beaches & Sandy beaches are close at 2 Miles Car: recommended

Otterton is a picture postcard pretty Devon village with a seasonal stream running through its heart with many 17th cob and thatch cottages & farmhouses. It lies 2 miles from the sea between Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth on the east bank of the River Otter. The closest beaches are pebbly, ideal for evening BBQs but at Exmouth 8 miles away there is a long sandy beach ideal for children or even kite surfers! The area is within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with wonderfully varied walks - it's truly England at its best. Dartmoor is not far away for a more remote feel, while Exeter is only a 20min drive for everything a Historical Cathedral city has to offer. The Eden project is an accessible day trip but you'll also need a day for the children to go to Crealy Adventure park. There is no shortage of things to do in this area - castles like Powderham to visit, donkeys to ride, fossils to collect, plus many botanical gardens & National Trust properties like Killerton!

Other Activities: go-karting, adventure park.
