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

A superb stay! A real find!

"We were delighted that we found the Tumbling Weir Hotel and were able to book a stay. From the moment we arrived, we were made welcome and our room was exceptionally comfortable and everywhere was absolutely immaculate and sparkling clean. Very reassuring in these times. Everything was very well organised. The service in the restaurant at dinner and breakfast was excellent. Both meals were perfectly cooked with very good produce and delicious and as for the coffee ... perfection! Everything requested (such as very strong coffee and well done bacon and sausage) was perfectly delivered. Our stay was a pleasure from start to finish. We will definitely return! Thank you."

"We stayed 3 nights at the beginning of August in the midst of the Corona Virus. We were very very impressed by all the precautions taken by the hotel to keep everyone safe and prevent the spread of the virus. The hotel was spotlessly Clean and the food was excellent - breakfast and evening meal. Lovely staff too. Certainly recommend this hotel as a base to explore the South Coast from. "
