Otter Falls has everything you need for a short break in Devon. Our stone farm cottages are ideal for a few days away, whether you are escaping for a romantic weekend or gathering for a family and friends celebration. The cosy one-bed Harvest Cottage is a bolt hole away from the world, while a group of up to 16 can combine the Old Farmhouse and The Dovecote for a more sociable short break. Alternatively, enjoy a lakeside Lodge with comfortable open plan living, the option of a hot tub on your decking, and serene and calming views, where you can leave the world behind. For something extra special choose a Treehouse or Retreat Hut for the ultimate woodland escape. Otter Falls is in the heart of the Devon countryside, easy enough to reach for a short break but far enough away for you to feel you have truly escaped. With facilities that include a swimming pool, the Tickled Trout Bistro, tennis courts and a play area, it’s the perfect setting for a short break in Devon.
Sometimes, you just need to get away for a few days. Somewhere you can relax, enjoy nature and spend time doing your favourite things. Whether you are a couple on a romantic break, a family or larger group, or you want a dog friendly getaway, head to Otter Falls for a short break and recharge your batteries. From weekend breaks enjoying the spring sunshine or autumn colours to midweek stays, when attractions, beaches and country walks are quieter, Otter Falls is the ideal location for a short break in Devon.
Whether you want a short break that’s full to the brim with activities or you prefer to stay close to base and do very little, Otter Falls has it covered. Start by exploring our 40-acre natural setting, which has woodlands, fishing lakes and Devon views. Stay on site for Ranger activities, a dip in the pool or a game of tennis. Pull on your walking boots and explore the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or head to the Jurassic Coast for seaside fun. Take in some of the best Devon and Cornwall attractions, including the Eden Project, Forde Abbey or Quad World. For fun and adventures that the children will love, try Diggerland, Pecorama or the Donkey Sanctuary at Sidmouth. For eating out, pop into our onsite bistro, the Tickled Trout, try the Dabbling Duck restaurant and bar at our sister estate, Lakeview Manor, or a short drive away, Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s River Cottage. Situated in the mid-Devon countryside, Otter Falls is a great base for exploring the Southwest and it’s also easy to get to, making it perfect for a short break.
A hot tub adds real luxury to a short break. Stay in one of our hot tub cottages or lodges at Otter Falls and you can spend your time relaxing in the bubbles. Whether you’re on a weekend break or a short break in the week, your hot tub is always ready for you to jump into. From an invigorating dip before breakfast with the birdsong to wake you up, to a sociable evening with your friends, it’s the perfect addition to your break. And if you are out and about all day, making the most of your short break to discover Devon, then it’s pure bliss to slide into the hot tub when you return so that you can wind down and soothe your aching limbs. Once night has fallen, can there be a better feeling than relaxing into the warm bubbles and enjoying a spot of stargazing? With light pollution so low in our rural setting, you see the night sky like you have never seen it before. Add a hot tub into the mix for your short break and you will wonder how you have ever managed a holiday without a hot tub before!
