Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday bungalow in Budleigh Salterton - Hawkern Cottage

2 Bedroom Bungalow, Sleeps 4 ideally situated to explore the Jurassic Coast

Hawkern Cottage is situated on the outskirts of the charming, picture postcard village of Otterton, which is between Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton. The property enjoys uninterrupted countryside views and is a haven for anyone who enjoys walking. There are numerous coastal and countryside walks which can be reached without having to get in your car. There are also plenty of beaches to explore nearby and Exeter City Centre is only a 30 minute drive.

The cottage comprises of one double bedroom, one twin bedded room, a bathroom, small utility and an open plan kitchen,dining area and sitting room. There are patio doors from the sitting area which open onto a terrace and garden.

The village of Otterton has its own Working Mill which has a restaurant, craft shop and fresh bakery in addition to the local village pub.

Facilities in the Area: Otterton is close by to Woodbury Golf and Country Club which is open to non-members and Exmouth boasts an Indoor Tennis centre which has 6 courts. Bicton Gardens is only a few minutes drive from Hawkern and the Regency town of Sidmouth is a 10 minute drive away.

Otterton is an ideal position because Dartmoor, Torbay, Lyme Regis (great for fossil hunting with the children), Exeter Cathedral Town are all easily accessible which makes plenty of day trips out for the family.

If you simple want a base for walking or relaxing on the beach, again you couldn't ask for a better location.

About Claire Mills

Tony and I have lived at Hawkern House since 2003 having moved from South Devon. We have three children and a lovely dog called Biggles. Fortunately when we bought the property the old stable had been converted into a County Bungalow which is Hawkern Cottage. It has its own private garden and parking area. I enjoy the the cottage being close because I like to meet and help my guests as best I can.

Claire Mills purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Claire Mills chose Budleigh Salterton

We choose Hawkern because of its peaceful location and wonderlful countyside views and it has the benefit of only being a 10 minute walk to the coastal path. A week in low season is £395, Mid Season £450 with high season being £650. It can also be rented out for a minimum of 2 nights at a cost £125 per night.

A gem of a cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Hawkern Cottage will be a memorable one. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could need on a self-catering holiday and the welcome tray was a very nice thought - thank you,Claire.

The pictures do not do justice to the wonderful view from the patio, also very well equipped with furniture to dine Al Fresco. Six or seven rabbits playing on the lawn provided amusement and at 9.45 each evening, we stood and watched the bats flitting around.

Just two very minor things: the step down from the front door is very steep and elderly people could find it a problem; also, a bread/cake tin for all the delicious bread and scones from Otterton Mill.

But, all very minor.

All in all, a lovely stay and one we would thoroughly recommend and repeat ourselves in years to come.

Quiet and restful

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I, along with our little Jack Russell have just returned from a week at Hawkern Cottage and a very enjoyable week it was. The view from the large patio doors in the lounge/kitchen are just spectacular and the cottage itself is very roomy, light and airy, with all utensils and equipment included to cook your own meals. The Kings Arms in Otterton village does really excellent meals and Otterton Mill does a marvellous breakfast, including their own milled toasted bread and free range eggs from their own chickens. We would definitely recommend this cottage to people.

A very comfortable cottage with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean and everything was there that you wanted on arrival there was coffee tea biscuits and milk all provided a very nice surprise. The garden was ideal as it is all enclosed and was just what we wanted for our dog, the views were quite stunning. Just a walk down the drive and you were onto footpaths and could walk for miles. Nice cream teas at Otterton Mill. We would deffinetly visit this cottage again in the future.

Weekend stay at Hawkern Cotage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hawkern Cottage for the weekend and what a lovely weekend. The cottage was just perfect and ideally located in a quaint Devon village. We were able to totally 'chill' and for our son to re-charge his batteries. Tony and Claire were delightful hosts. We can highly recommend the Otterton Mill just a short distance away from the cottage as a great place to eat lunch. We would certainly recommend this cottage to family and friends. Thank you for a great stay.

Hawkern Cottage a wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Hawkern Cottage the last week of July and thoroughly enjoyed it. Nestled on a hilltop with a wonderful view of the Devon countryside, Hawkern Cottage offers a quiet, restful retreat from everyday life. A fully equipped kitched makes it possible to prepare your own meals, but there are good pubs and inns nearby if you don't wish to cook. The Cottage is clean, bright, and very comfortable and roomy. Claire Mills does an excellent job making you feel welcome and yet respects your privacy. Hawkern is very close to many countryside walks, plus the charming seaside towns of Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton. If you are looking for a quiet, charming cottage to get away from daily cares, I can heartily recommend Hawkern.

June 2011- 1 week

  • 4 of 5

I have just returned from a weeks stay with my elderly mother at Hawkern Cottage.

This property is clean, cosy, comfortable and well presented.It is very good value for money,with many little extras provided. The view is fantastic and an abundance of wildlife visits the garden. The location could not be more perfect for walking or touring this area of Devon.

I would stay here again and have already recommended it to friends and family.
