  • "We found the sofa and arm chair in the lounge uncomfortable, the cottage and garden were lovely."

    Reading between the lines (and a comment from the neighbours) it seems there may be some history of parking and noise conflict, that same neighbour needs to realise his noise also travels especially at 1am.

    So sorry you found the armchair and sofa uncomfortable, it is a relatively new leather Chesterfield suite, we do ask our guests to park opposite the cottage to be courteous to neighbours that live there full time. Property Owner

  • "The location was excellent for walking and having the folder of suggested walks was really useful."

    We had a lovely New Year break in the cottage and found it really cosy- loved having the wood burner. The only issue was the leaking kettle which might need to be replaced. Otherwise well equipped with everything we needed with a few thoughtful touches such as the Xmas decorations and the edible treats. Much appreciated- thank you.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are really pleased you had such a lovely time at the Cottage. Also, we would like to thank you for pointing out the issue with the kettle. We hope to be able to welcome you back to the Cottage in the future. Property Owner

  • "11 The Green is a super property."

    My wife, myself and our dog like to stay in a two bedroom property, for a week, once or twice a year, down on the South Coast of England. This cottage was just right for us. Here's why: two decent sized bedrooms (considering the property is pretty old), comfy bed, warm & powerful shower, well specified kitchen (only the dishwasher was out of order but nevermind), decent sofa & chair for evening Netflix series watching on the iPad, table and chairs in separate sun room, outside space for quiet al fresco dining (the joyous sound of the outside school assembly from the village primary school made us smile & the church bells on the hour pretty handy), garden bench @ the top of the garden for evening drinks and nibbles in the sun, decent pub a short walk away and parking available just across the road. We're walkers and particularly enjoyed walks from Branscombe & Beer. A great place from which to explore the South East Devon coastline. Thank you

    Cottage was on very busy main road no parking neighbours made us move car even though it was on a road bathroom way to small no comfortable seating at all telly from the 80s very over looked

    Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback, we are sorry to read your comments. We do kindly ask guests to park opposite the cottage out of respect for full-time residents being able to park outside their homes. The website clearly shows the location of the cottage, this is not a very busy road and parking nearby shouldn't be a problem. The suite is a leather Chesterfield and we have not previously received comments about this. The TV is not from the 80's, it runs with WiFi and has iPlayer etc. Finally, the garden seating area is private and there is a fence and a high hedge further up the garden. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was exceptionally clean and well equipped and we were very comfortable."

    Otterton had some good amenities and was a great base for everything we wanted to see and do. The only negative point was that we were rather surprised at how heavy, noisy and fast the traffic on the road was.

  • "Had a great stay in this cottage."

    Fabulous location, quaint and cosy inside. Tony at no. 15 was very welcoming as we arrived and gave a few hints and tips on where to go. Parking can get difficult during the day but in the evening the road opposite is usually free of cars. Lots of visitors to the mill and dog walkers generally. Fantastic place if you have a dog. We don't! Fantastic without one, also! Head out just before dusk south along the river for 10 mins to catch sight of the beavers.

  • "The cottage was extremely well equipped and very cosy."

    Considerable thought had been given to furnishing the property and we loved the various 'bits and pieces' which helped create a lovely atmosphere. We have been to many holiday cottages and the range of books on walks/local history /area information was the best we have seen. The property is well placed for exploring the local area but has plenty of walks on the doorstep so you could enjoy the cottage and immediate area without needing to rely on your car!

  • "Really lovely cottage, which had everything we needed."

    The main bed was quite soft and for us, was hard to get comfortable in and we ended up using the twin beds in the other room. Also, there were two Cockrel within a few houses and they crowed from 4am to late in the evening and due to the heat closing the windows was not an option so our sleep was not optimal. The area has great walks and for nature lovers otters and kingfishers are obvious and nearby. Overall this is a great property which can be a home from home, but the noise from the nearby cockrel really dampened our enjoyment.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your stay at 11 The Green. The cockerel was owned by neighbours who lived 3 doors away and as you can imagine the noises were out of our control. However, to reassure yourself and future guests the cockerel is no longer at the property! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the property and area and look forward to welcoming you back to 11 The Green in the future. Property Owner

    Excellent. Perfect location in the village where I have family who were born & still live in Otterton for many years, was outstanding, the caretaker was lovely & so was the gentleman who lived at number 15. Other neighbours (no 9), avoid, but just ignore them! Had a lovely time, definitely recommended & I’ll still stay there again! Thank you for renting out your cottage.

  • "Very well equipped and generally comfortable cottage."

    Used to footstool and became too hot at night with the duvet. Otherwise we were very satisfied with the cottage. Very good location with pleasant walks from the doorstep. The trek over high peak to Sidmouth was particularly enjoyable. The hosts provided a lot of very useful information about the locality. Rod was extremely helpful in sorting out an issue with a lack of hot water one evening - its always reassuring to have someone to call on-site.

The property

This partly thatched, Grade II listed cottage is located in a pretty terrace beside the village green in Otterton.

With charming original old features and modern style, this is excellent accommodation for small families or couples.

From the street, open your front door into the spacious kitchen with traditional range as a feature.

Snuggle up beside the log burner in the comfy living room, which has glass doors through to a sunny dining room.

Both these rooms can open to the garden on a sunny day.

Head up the stairs to a delightful romantic double bedroom with a four poster bed, and a twin which has the handy option of converting to a big double bed.

The south facing garden is enclosed, with a seating area and steps leading you up to terraced lawns where the elevated position gives you peaceful views over the church and village.

The village is a typically pretty, tranquil Devon one where you will be welcomed at the pub and shop.

Otterton Mill is a fascinating place to visit, with its working mill, restaurant, bakery, shop and occasional events.

Explore the nature reserve on the banks of the River Otter and you may spot a wide variety of birds or if you are lucky, wild beavers who have been reintroduced.

Head down to the Jurassic Coast at Ladram Bay's pebble beach, or the elegant seaside town of Sidmouth.

For city attractions, Exeter has everything you could wish for.

11 The Green is a wonderful base for exploring this beautiful and peaceful region.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Budleigh Salterton 3 miles; Sidmouth 3 miles.

Set back from the coast among the rolling green countryside and wooded valleys of beautiful East Devon, this pretty village with its collection of traditionally thatched roofed cottages is straight from a picture postcard. Offering a quieter but no less beautiful holiday destination than the rest of the county it’s the perfect place to relax and unwind, and is just 3 miles from the Regency coastal resort towns of both Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth, and one mile from the SW Coastal Path as it meanders above the waves towards the World Heritage Site ‘Jurassic Coast’ beaches with their abundant fossils. Ladram Bay with its red-stone sea stacks is just one mile away. Inland, footpaths follow the banks of the River Otter where fox, badger and birdlife play while just down the road from the village is Bicton Park and Botanical Gardens, 60 acres of garden lovers’ paradise. For a really interesting hour or two, visit the last working flour mill on the river Otter - it’s in the village and the flour is superb. There’s much to do and see in this beautiful and unspoilt area but if you want to explore further afield, the open spaces and high tors of Dartmoor can be reached in under an hour while the Cathedral city of Exeter with its superb shopping centre, cinemas, clubs and restaurants is a mere 10 miles.
