About the property

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 Otterton

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.

  • 5 of 5

This is a really nice well equipped holiday home. Private and quiet but very well located for exploring Devon. Welcome pack was very thoughtful. Would we book again?......yes without any doubt. Kids loved it, wanted to move in. Community shop in Otterton caters for your basic needs (its got a good selection of goods) the mill was nice to visit too, Skatepark in Budleigh Salterton a hit with our kids!

A very comfortable cottage, spacious and well equipped. Enclosed private rear garden with quite spectacular view. Otterton is a very pretty village with excellent pub/restaurant. All round a great location for exploring this very nice part of Devon.

I can't really fault this cottage. Spotlessly clean, spacious and well equipped. The location is good, being at the edge of the village means plenty of peace and quiet but not too far from main roads for days out. Ample parking too. We would definitely revisit.

From our arrival at the cottage we were very warmly welcomed by Claire who showed us around the cottage. The cottage was very well equipped, everything we needed was there to use. The views from the lounge were amazing. We had very enjoyable evenings relaxing in the garden after our days out. The cottage is in a good position for driving to Sidmouth, Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton, Dawlish, Teignmouth and Torquay, all of which are not too far to travel to. There are some lovely walks also. We left feeling thoroughly relaxed and will definitely recommend the cottage to our family and friends and will return ourselves also.

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.
