The Tumbling Weir is a small thatched hotel, converted from a 17th Century cottage, nestling between the River Otter and its mill stream. Lynn and Paul Thurgate welcome you to their picturesque, family owned and run hotel, for a comfortable and relaxing stay in a very tranquil, rural setting, away from traffic noise and street lights. If you are looking for an overnight stay, a gourmet break, a quiet room on a business trip or somewhere to meet up with family and friends, the Tumbling Weir Hotel is the perfect location in which to relax, entertain and dine. Set in nearly an acre of beautiful, mature gardens with unusual plants, overlooking fields and the River Otter. The Hotel is within easy reach of the M5 and is close to Exeter, its airport and the coast. Historic Ottery St Mary is just a few minutes walk. We look forward to welcoming you to our friendly family hotel, Lynn and Paul Thurgate

Bank Holiday Weekend visit

"Spotlessly clean, friendly owner and staff, value for money, a stone's throw from Samuel Taylor Coleridge's father's church and the commemorative stones to the poet and philosopher as well as Sainsbury's. If you're an ancient mariner and a supermarket shopper, this hotel should accommodate needs."
