    The Tumbling Weir is a thatched hotel, converted from a 17th Century cottage, nestling between the River Otter and its mill stream. The hotel is family owned and run and is in a very tranquil, rural setting with access down a very narrow lane off the main road. The Tumbling Weir has a 2 star hotel rating with both the AA and Visit England. The hotel enjoys an excellent location in East Devon, being 12 miles away from Exeter. It is just 4 miles from Exeter airport and within easy reach of the M5 and the coastal delights of Sidmouth and the Jurassic Coast. The hotel has its own restaurant serving local West Country produce, imaginatively cooked and beautifully presented. Interesting food is available everyday, for either lunch or dinner.The breakfasts are famous with homemade preserves and the freshest local eggs and sausages. The Tumbling Weir Hotel is set in nearly an acre of pretty landscaped gardens with interesting plantings and extensive wildlife. A new terrace overlooks the gardens and is an ideal spot to enjoy the peace and quiet of the rural aspect, yet the town centre is only a 5 minute level walk. Ottery St Mary is an ancient town mentioned in the Domesday Book and has much to admire, with a beautiful church, interesting walks and great shopping. The 10 bedrooms have very comfortable beds, smart linen, down bedding and a range of English toiletries. There is a mix of singles, doubles and twins with one interconnecting family room and a delightful four poster.The majority of the bedrooms are quite compact but have good quality furnishings, great views and they are a haven of peace and quiet, far away from traffic noise and street lights. Free WI-FI is available throughout the hotel, including the bedrooms. The Otter Suite is the perfect location for weddings, conferences, meetings and parties. The light filled room overlooks the tranquil gardens and the function menus on offer are interesting and keenly priced.There is ample free parking.
