Overview

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.

Larger than it looks in the Photos, Clean, Warm & Cosy

  • 5 of 5

Lovely traditional cottage full of character and charm in a very peaceful area but close to the village centre. Fantastic location to explore the costal Walks to Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth. Friendly locally run shop and a The Kings Head pubs staff where particularly attentive.

The gas Log burner is a must if staying here in the winter, it just adds to the whole atmosphere.

We will look froward to returning again next year and explore more of the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review, its greatly appreciated as it helps other guests form an unbiased opinion! As you and many guests also say, the Cottage is much bigger in reality than it looks & YES that fire is just fantastic in the colder months warming the Cottage a treat! Its hard to do the Cottage justice in photos. So pleased you enjoyed the walks - there certainly are a number to choose from & we look forward to having you return next year to explore further. I'm so pleased you made use of the local shop - we try to support the local community as much as possible & they are a great crowd providing a valuable service!

The cottage was well equipped with a high level of cleanliness. We enjoyed long walks in the area by the river and to the beach with the dog. We were pleased to find many dog friendly establishments for refreshments.

So pleased you enjoyed the walks in the area .. one of the lovely things about Jackrtts is so many of these walks can be started from the Cottage without having to drive anywhere. Hopefully we will see you again at Jacketts & you will join our growing group of regulars!

Lovely cottage in a very good position to enjoy Otterton and the surrounding area.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was perfect for us with a dog with many enjoyable local walks and not having to drive. Also many other walks within a few miles. Local pub excellent and dog friendly.

Cottage very well equipped and very warm and comfortable. Perhaps a bit too much furniture and some of it out-dated but overall a most enjoyable stay. Would recommend.

Great base for a Devon break

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and comfortable and well equipped throughout. The warm autumn sun made the conservatory great for morning coffee and the fire made the living room very cosy in the evening

The cottage was all that we had hoped it would be, clean, tidy and cosy, it was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic short stay, the cottage is ideally situated for superb walks with great scenery.

Really cannot fault the quality of the cottage or the surroundings, I would truly recommend this as an ideal get away location if you just want to relax and chill out for a while.

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.
