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

Delightful family run hotel

"What a delightful place. Well maintained and sensibly run so the owners can attend to you at the ring of a bell but get on with their lives and leave you to enjoy your stay without hoveringover you. The two rooms we had were a decent size with adjustable radiators and windows opening onto the mature garden or side garden senitively planted to soften the side view of neighbouring newly but nicely built retirement flats. The large internal dining space is divided up so isn't overwhelming for our smaller group. The home cooked food was excellent;tasty without being overdressed in heavy sauces and accompanied by fresh veg, wine from the list and beer from the bar. The brixham fish we all chose was delicious. We all thought the B&B price very fair for our stay."
