The outside space is a dream come true. We love the built-in firepit seating area; the most idyllic spot to soak up the sunshine on a glorious day with a G&T in hand. Or, get snug and toast marshmallows under the stars, as you exchange campfire stories with your loved ones… magical! Relax and unwind in the luxurious hot tub before cooking up some delicious Italian delights in the wonderful DeliVita pizza oven… Best enjoyed alfresco! At the bottom of the meadow is a gate leading to a stream that joins a wildlife lake. Immerse yourself in Otter’s Holt natural surroundings and see what wildlife you can spot. Dairy cattle graze in nearby fields and herons, deer, badgers, otters and beavers are known to have made a secret home by the river bank. The quiet beauty of this unique haven will definitely capture your heart.


Otter’s Holt is off-grid and powered by solar, there is no mains electricity, which makes it the perfect hideaway for an undisturbed retreat back to nature. However, there is enough power for the lights and to charge a phone. The owner has kindly provided an in-car hair dryer for guests’ use.

The owners of this hideaway have recently planted new trees on site.


We really wouldn’t blame you for wanting to spend your days soaking up all the beauty this hideaway has to offer.

From here, you can pick up the ancient riverside path to the historic Ottery St Mary, birthplace of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
