The property

Bampton 5.3 miles.

Otters Holt is a well-presented annexe cottage nestled at the peaceful trout fishery in Bellbrook Valley, near the village of Bampton.

It is well-suited to families and friends looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and make the most of this tranquil setting.

Enter straight into the open-plan living room, which has been thoughtfully presented with the dining area set in the window, taking in the views of the lake.

You can rustle up a delicious meal in the kitchen and get everyone together around the table to enjoy the scenery, whilst catching up on the adventures you've had so far.

Unwind into your evening by sinking into one of the sofas and tuning into the TV before retiring to bed.

The master bedroom plays host to a super king-size double, with zip/link beds for flexibility and views over the garden.

To the outside, the lawned garden offers a lovely spot to enjoy a drink outside, with a raised decking area, plenty of seating and a lawned area for the kids to run around with the dog.

Alternatively, enjoy a glass of wine on the small patio area to the side of the cottage and bask in the natural surroundings.

Bellbrook is known as one of the prettiest fisheries in the country, with great fly-fishing and trout fishing, set in its own 40-acre valley between Devon and Somerset.

There is abundant wildlife to enjoy within the grounds, such as deer, badgers, foxes and buzzards, among a plethora of wild flowers and rare plants.

There are seven lakes within the grounds, five of which are well-stocked and tutorials are even provided for beginners.

Those of you who don't fancy fishing, there are many other activities to suit all tastes, such as horse riding, golf, surfing beaches and walking through windswept moors.

Nearby towns and villages boast many handy amenities such as Tiverton and Dulverton and you can enjoy the whole of the north coast as well as Exmoor National Park.

Return to this serene getaway and re-charge your batteries amidst the beautiful scenery in a lovely part of Devon.
