Coronavirus update - 27th June 2020 Following the UK government easing of restrictions from 4th July, we have taken the difficult decision to remain closed until mid January 2021 to protect our guests, ourselves and our wider community. We will of course, honour existing bookings. Thank you to all our guests for your support and understanding and we look forward to seeing you all next year. Overlooking the beautiful Otter Valley in the heart of the Blackdown Hills, AONB. Otter Rise is a pretty, detached cottage with large, private gardens. Tastefully finished to a high standard, once inside the cosy accommodation is accessible for wheelchairs. Lovely country walks from the door, beautiful beaches a short drive away.

We will of course, honour existing bookings. Thank you to all our guests for your support and understanding and we look forward to seeing you all next year. Overlooking the beautiful Otter Valley in the heart of the Blackdown Hills, AONB. Otter Rise is a pretty, detached cottage with large, private gardens. Tastefully finished to a high standard, once inside the cosy accommodation is accessible for wheelchairs. Lovely country walks from the door, beautiful beaches a short drive away. Many of our friends have called Otter Rise a 'little piece of heaven' and everyone who comes to stay loves the peace and tranquility of the area. We also love the friendliness of the people, the beautiful riverside or woodland walks and exploring the ancient, hidden lanes; a visit to the nearby beaches and fossil hunting along the Jurassic Coast is special and what can beat buying the freshest fish straight from the boats on the slipway at Beer? We'll share our favourite restaurants and pubs with you, most of which welcome dogs. When you've had enough of all this fresh air and country goodness, there are plenty of shops, theatres and cinemas or, closer to home are numerous small towns with unique, quirky shops to explore. We like Otter Rise to feel like a home away from home for our guests, so we have tried to provide everything you could wish for in a self-catering cottage, as well as the obvious you will also find beach towels, picnic backpack, a first basket of logs for the wood burner, lots of games, books, toys and jigsaws for young and old as well as DVD's and CD's, all linen and towels and tea, coffee's and sugar to name just a few.More
