Inexpensive, good quality cottage for 4 in pretty Devon village

Overview

Property

Updated: 08-Dec-2016
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.

A home from home in a beautiful part of Devon.

  • 5 of 5

Jacketts was a surprise package for us, we booked fairly late & needed something that was a good deal but in the right location. We opened the door to be wowed by the space & neatness of the cottage, a real home from home & we settle right in. Otterton was an excellent base for seeing the whole area.

Owner's Response: How nice to have positive comments like this on my website. My visitors book has many other similar comments too - the spaciousness of the cottage certainly is a surprise package and I always try to aim for the highest standard with attention to detail. Its a wonderful area and many guests return for further holidays at Jacketts, which is the best recommondation I could have.

Wonderfull cosy village property

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Jacket's, this time in October a glorious time to be in Devon. The property has everything you may need for your break to make it feel very much a home from home. We visit family in this beautiful little hamlet and we enjoyed some good home cooking with a good wine round the table. We can recommend East Devon as a holiday destination as it combines great walking, stunning views of coast and country and very good shopping. It's also worth crossing the border to Lyme Regis and dont miss Beer on the way.

Lovely cottage in a pretty village

  • 5 of 5

A lovely clean & tidy cottage providing everything you need for a home away from home. Ideal location for exploring the nearby coastal villages (Sidmouth, Budleigh Salterton & Exmouth) Lots of walks in the area although we only managed the one by the river and the walk to Ladram bay. Fresh homemade bread available daily from the Otterton Watermill made using their own ground flour. For anything else you may need the local community store will have it. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone wishing for a lovely country experience.

Warm, comfortable cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Jacketts is a warm and comfortable cottage - perfect for curling up with a good book when the weather is cold and wet or just for a big chill out. The courtyard garden is perfect for enjoying a glass of wine in the evening sunshine before retiring to the garden room or cosy lounge.

When feeling energetic Jacketts Cottage is perfectly placed to enjoy many walks from the doorstep. We particularly enjoyed walking along the river to Budleigh Salterton and then returning along the quiet cycle path.

The nearby Otterton Mill (5 minute walk away) hosts fabulous music concerts by some top folk musicians - combine this with a meal and great beer, cider or wine for a perfect evening, but make sure you book in advance.

You will not be disappointed with Jacketts Cottage, Otterton.

Happy holidays,

Tony, Celia and family

A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Jacketts! It really is a home from home - it is always those little things that you may only need once and don't really want to have to bring with you.... kitchen foil, dishwasher tabs, hand wash, maps etc were all supplied. In fact I can't think of anything we needed that we couldn't find!

The location is perfect. The village has a fantastic pub that does great food for those nights you don't want to cook or drive, there are walks right on the doorstep, and we highly recommend the Beer-Branscombe walk. We were so lucky with the weather, so we had the bedroom window open at night, and my favourite thing was waking up in the morning listening to the gentle sounds of the village.... birdsong and the occasional passing conversation!

Thanks Mundi!

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.
