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.

Sunny Devon

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage in a really pretty village. Spacious and well equipped, we loved sitting in the garden or conservatory at the beginning or end of the day, enjoying the sunshine and birdsong.

Excellent value for money in a quiet village, but with few amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Property comfortably furnished with all you might need - except for the absence of a cafetière, making breakfast coffee rather difficult to concoct!

Very efficient heating, almost tropical on arrival! Plenty of space for the two of us, and easy access to other parts of the South Devon coastline.

A good find, and one to recommend.

A cosy cottage away from it all.

  • 5 of 5

a comfortable cosy cottage, with all that you need.

nice pubs near by, so the only thing we cooked was toast in the mornings and crumpets at night.

A perfect little place!

2 Jacketts Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful holiday at Jacketts Cottage. It was 'home from home' and extremely comfortable. A great location to visit some of our favourite places, Sidmouth and Lyme Regis. Our daughter, and dogs, enjoyed exploring on arrival. The weather was excellent for the time of year. Thank you for sharing such a special place.

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.
