INEXPENSIVE, GOOD QUALITY COTTAGE FOR 4 IN PRETTY DEVON VILLAGE

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Otterton - 2 Jacketts Cottages

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.

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.

Jacketts Cottage was just as the pictures depict. It was very cozy and warm, absolutely everything was provided there for a comfortable vacation. I was impressed by the friendly village locals. Very picturesque. I felt very safe and at home. It was a wonderful retreat for me during my visit home to Devon.
I will return again and stay there. Also, good to know is, if you need help, Jo and Mundi are great ones to rescue you.
Thank you,

Jacketts is a lovely cottage with a real home from home feel. It is furnished to give each room character and practicality,adding to the ambience of this very likeable old house. The cottage was clean and fresh when we arrived and being November we particularly appreciated the wonderful ( and easy to use ) fire in the lounge. Beds were comfortable and bedrooms were of a good size. We liked the small back garden which provided our little dog with both space and security. Although because of the time of year we didn't make use of the conservatory, I'm sure in better weather this would be lovely to sit out and relax in.
Otterton is a beautiful village and has a welcoming pub providing very good basic "pub grub" at a reasonable price. Overall the location is good with so many pretty Devon villages and seaside resorts within only a short drive away. Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton were our particular favourites and the wonderful Lyme Regis is only a little further by car. The countryside offers the best of opportunities for walking and we used the numerous beaches nearby to walk our dog every day.
We found the booking process very simple and had several helpful exchanges by email and phone with the owner prior to our visit. We would whole heartily recommend this cottage to all, and look forward to visiting again ourselves in the future. Top marks for Jacketts, and we hope that all who follow us will have as lovely a holiday as we did. A real all year round break in beautiful Devon.

Owner's Response: What more can I say, you seem to have mentioned everything! Thank you for such a well rounded review. I really try to make the Cottage a home away from home & I feel its the little touches that make the difference.The new television, dishwasher & the WiFi are a essentials as far as I'm concerned. The area is still unspoilt & I'm so pleased you also enjoyed the local villages. There is just so much this area has to offer, so a revisit to Jacketts is essential! Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Many Thanks Mundi

Lovely, cosy cottage

We had such a fabulous stay at Jacketts. It was just what we were loking for. Good location with walks to the sea on your doorstep and lovely places not too far of a drive away. We went to East Budleigh, Branscome and Haldon Forest as well as Lyme Regis. It was such a good base for our needs. We had a 16 month old daughter so we set our travel cot up in the master bedroom. The gas fire is lovely and the kitchen is well equipped. We would like to return next Spring. Many thanks, Doug, Becky and Poppy
Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed Jacketts - its our home away from home & we like to make sure its well equipped so everybody staying there really feels at home too. As you say it is a great location with those lovely walks straight out from the Cottage, to the sea, as well as along the river. In addition to those mentioned there are many more lovely locations in the area, so you'll still have lots of new places to visit in the Spring. There is also a great little playground just around the corner from Jacketts which hopefully Poppy will be able to enjoy next year. We will be delighted to welcome you back next year and join our growing list of returning guests!

We stayed at Jacketts for three and a half weeks during the depths of mid-Winter and found the property to be warm and comfortable. The heating worked well and the gas fire in the lounge made for lovely cosy evenings. Wireless internet access allowed us to browse local attractions online, there were ample cooking facilities and the owner provided excellent help in respect of advice on local activities and the use of the facilities within the house. We were happy to find that all the activities we were interested in were only a short stroll away, with the Mill being at the bottom of the road, likewise the beautiful walk along the Otter river to Budleigh Salterton was easily accessible even with a child in a buggy. We really enjoyed the spectacular views and coastline, purchased wonderful fresh local fish, meat and vegetables and extensively explored the Jurassic coast, Dartmoor and the Torbay region. I have recommended the property to my family and expect that some of them will follow us down there soon.

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.
