"We stayed at Jacketts for three and a half weeks during the depths of mid-Winter and found the property to be warm and comfortable.
The heating worked well and the gas fire in the lounge made for lovely cosy evenings. Wireless internet access allowed us to browse local attractions online, there were ample cooking facilities and the owner provided excellent help in respect of advice on local activities and the use of the facilities within the house. We were happy to find that all the activities we were interested in were only a short stroll away, with the Mill being at the bottom of the road, likewise the beautiful walk along the Otter river to Budleigh Salterton was easily accessible even with a child in a buggy. We really enjoyed the spectacular views and coastline, purchased wonderful fresh local fish, meat and vegetables and extensively explored the Jurassic coast, Dartmoor and the Torbay region. I have recommended the property to my family and expect that some of them will follow us down there soon."

"We had such a fabulous stay at Jacketts. It was just what we were looking for. Good location with walks to the sea on your doorstep and lovely places not too far of a drive away. We went to East Budleigh, Branscome and Haldon Forest as well as Lyme Regis. It was such a good base for our needs. We had a 16 month old daughter so we set our travel cot up in the master bedroom. The gas fire is lovely and the kitchen is well equipped. We would like to return next Spring. Many thanks, Doug, Becky and Poppy"

"This stay was just thought to prolong our holidays in GB, but it was much nicer than we had expected. The cottage is really spacious; the kitchen is very well equipped, much better than the 5* cottage we had stayed in before. The location is great with fast access to a lot of beaches and pretty little seaside towns.
And we even enjoyed some rain because the conservatory is just it! You sit in an easy chair and listen to the falling rain - so relaxing! We surely would come back. And for dog owners: very dog-friendly area (fields nearby, pub in Otterton welcomes dogs)."

"We have been to Jacketts several times now and it is always a great place to stay for a family holiday. Spacious, clean and comfortable, there is room for kids and a great play park just around the corner, too. Otterton is a beautiful little village and is a fantastic place to stay to experience what a true Devon village should be! It makes a great base and is ideal for walking, cycling, sightseeing and going to the beach."

"Jacketts was a surprise package for us, we booked fairly late & needed something that was a good deal but in the right location. We opened the door to be wowed by the space & neatness of the cottage, a real home from home & we settle right in. Otterton was an excellent base for seeing the whole area."
