Great Places to Visit
Great things to do
Great Christmas Shopping
Honiton, just 7 miles from Otter Falls is renowned for its variety of antique shops - 38 in total! A delightful place to browse and find unusual gifts.
The historic City of Exeter, 30 - 40 minutes away, offers top quality stores, colourful market stalls and unique boutiques tucked away down ancient cobbled alleyways. Visit the Cathedral and pop into one of the newly opened restaurants - like Michael Caines at the Royal Clarence - a historic pub or 'Tea Shoppe' for lunch. Exeter is large enough to offer everything you need, but small enough to be friendly.
A visit to the famous Otter Nurseries, one of England's largest and finest Garden Centres is a must. A kaleidoscope of thousands of plants to delight every gardener and festive decorations and gifts to buy - 20 minutes away.
Whilst you're visiting Otter Nurseries, drop in at Joshua's Farm Shop which offers delicious organic cheeses, venison and game as well as tasty condiments and spices.
For delightful woodland walks pop in to Knighthayes Court and Killerton House - two of Devon's finest historic houses and gardens with a gift shop and well stocked plant centre. A wonderful day out and only some 30 minutes away. Why not call in for lunch at the Drewe Arms at Broadhembury, one of England's finest country pubs in Devon's prettiest village.
Do you like Vintage or Classic Motors - The Haynes Motor Museum is not far away as is the impressive Navy Air Museum at Yeovilton.
For serious shopping the Clarks Outlet Centre is a must - some 30 minutes away at Street.
For animal lovers why not visit the Donkey Sanctuary near Sidmouth and see the superb conditions in which these formerly deprived Donkeys are kept - there is a pleasant coffee shop for a quick snack.
Get some air! The sea is just 30 minutes away and a bracing walk along the World Heritage Coastline. We recommend the cliff top walk from Beer to Branscombe where the renowned pub - The Masons Arms is to be found - this walk provides one of the most impressive coastal pathways you'll find anywhere in the British Isles.
