This property is a real romantic getaway, a truly picture postcard cottage recently re-thatched and decorated inside and out.  For the summer it has a pretty small garden to sit in and on the colder evenings you can snuggle up in front of the log burner. Everything is new, the bedroom is spacious and the bed is very comfortable.  It is close to the Fountain Head Inn.  Wonderful walks to the sea where there is the Sea Shanty restaurant which serves good food.  An ideal place for dog owners as there are many miles of walks to be had.

Location:  Otter's Corner is in Branscombe, a lovely village on Devon's south coast where thatched cottages frame the valley and lead down to the sea. The cottage is situated on a picturesque walking route (one of many close by) and is moments from the characterful Fountain Head Inn.

Accommodation:  Outside the cottage is a handy space for cleaning off your wellies (and dog!) As you enter the cottage through the front stable door, there is plenty of handy storage and hanging space as well as a well-equipped utility room with toilet facilities.

The beautifully-decorated open plan dining and sitting room, complete with a window seat overlooking the lane, has a brand-new shaker-style kitchen with all you need for a relaxed or romantic supper. A welcoming log burner is tucked into a fireplace, with a two-seater sofa and armchair in which to cosy-up on during those chilly winter evenings. From the kitchen is a softly-carpeted open tread stairway leading to the first floor. To one side of the landing is a luxuriously-appointed shower room with large shower and fluffy white towels. Opposite is a light and pretty bedroom with painted beams and sloping ceilings in keeping the cottage's original features. There is a king-size bed with white cotton bed linen, dressing table, hanging space and chest of drawers. Finally, as dogs are very much welcome, he or she can curl up on the blankets provided, and dog bowls are ready and waiting.

Outside:  Otter's Corner has an adjacent private courtyard-style garden with table, chairs, parasol and sun lounger. Ideal for al fresco dining. There is a dedicated (and much coveted!) parking space opposite the cottage. 

Facilities:  Wash-dryer, sink, small freezer, ironing board, TV, electric oven, induction hob, dishwasher, larder, fridge, microwave, toaster, heated towel racks, hair dryer. Wifi and USB charging points. Bed linen and towels. Dog bowls and blankets provided. Parking for one car. Friday to Friday changeover.

Restrictions:  No smoking inside the property.


A perfect little cottage to relax in after long walks in the beautiful surrounding area. The bed is so comfortable and having a private parking space and enclosed garden to ourselves was excellent.

Mrs C,

An idyllic cottage in a lovely location inevitably down very narrow lanes.

Ms C,

Otter's Corner is so cosy and comfortable. The cottage is ideally situated for beautiful walks, so the car remained in the parking space opposite the cottage. The nearby Fountain's Head served good food, indoors!

Mr C,

Beautiful cottage in a wonderful setting. The decor was lovely and we had everything we needed and more. The bed linen was lovely and the bed comfortable. I particularly appreciated the fluffy towels. Branscombe is a really delightful village with lots of great walks.We really felt at peace, a wonderful feeling after this past year. The Masons arms is a lovely place to eat and if the weather had been better I’m sure we would have spent more time in the Fountain’s head -literally a 30 sec walk away!

Mrs Z,

A really cosy cottage in a beautiful location with footpaths only yards away. A good pub is across the road and the beach with a cafe a 30 minute walk down the hill. The small garden allows one to sit and listen to the birdsong which is plentiful. A super little place to spend a week in East Devon.

Mrs W,
