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

Beautiful hotel, superb food and immaculate room.

"The room was super comfortable, immaculate and modern, inc hot drinks and biscuits. Although advertised as a small double, just for myself it was more that adequate. Lovely clean bathroom, hot showers and great toiletries as well. The hotel is very beautiful inside and out. The breakfast in the morning was superb and the staff were very polite and accommodating. Central to the Ottery St Mary town so easy to walk in and beside a large Sainsbury’s.I highly recommend a stay here and hope to return myself sometime in the future. "
