We have LOVED our stay here in Otterton because of this gorgeous place.

I really do wish we had discovered it sooner!

It has been perfect for all three of us. We have all loved the walk behind us. Yesterday we even had the joy of discovering about six young foxes playing together. Exmouth beach at low tide, beautiful Budleigh, the cliff walks, the Otter...it's all been just perfect. Those things and meeting up with eight different friends so far have made this a whirlwind escape. 

We've been made to feel so welcome here, too. It was good to meet you yesterday. 

I don't want to go home! But we still have two days of our escape left and will relish every minute of them.

Charlie has been safe and happy here. Thank you.

‘’This is a great location and we can recommend it highly. The main advantages for us were high standard accommodation within easy reach of all the things we need for a perfect holiday - 5 minute walk to the pub and Otterton Mill, great foodie locations like Darts Farm, 5 minutes in the car to the beach and lots of beautiful walks and locations. Thank you for a lovely holiday!"

"We are avid golfers and can recommend Rydon Stables as a brilliant base for golfers. Set in a village, it is within 20 minutes of several top quality golf courses, with many more within a 45 minute drive. The pub is great for evenings after being outside all day and the food was good, also excellent local Otter beer! The area is beautiful, lovely coastal towns, all unspoiled with lots of charm. Rydon Stables is a high quality property, beautifully presented and sparkling clean. A really good holiday in a perfect location."


"We spent New Year at Rydon Stables and had a great time. The weather was good and we spent every day out and about in the wonderful countryside and seaside. It was fantastic to come home to a log fire, cosy sitting room and a bottle of local Pebbelbed wine - who could ask for more? The cottage is in a brilliant location for seeing plenty of the area and within 5 minutes walk to the pub. Would recommend highly"

"I cannot recommend this property enough. We had every requirement met to our satisfaction and more. The location is perfect - ideal for either local visits or accessing a great deal of the Westcountry. The local pub and Otterton Mill are 5 minute walk, so perfect in the evening."

"A great place for high quality accommodation together with easy access to the beach, walking distance to the pub and Otterton Mill, for eating out. We can recommend the high quality furnishings, attention to detail and immaculate accommodation. Ideal for couples seeking high levels of comfort. We had a great week"

We are from the USA and spent 3 weeks at Rydon Stables during which time we sought out long lost relatives and the history of our family. We were sad to leave as it had become home to us. The beds are excellent and furnishings good quality and ambience of the property is real nice. We will miss our lovely Otterton home stay!

We are keen walkers and walked the SW Coastal path from the beginning of the Jurassic Coast at Exmouth to beyond Lyme Regis. Rydon Stables was the most perfect location and setting. We could not have asked for more, all the little extras were very welcome. This cottage has been prepared with love and is highly recommended. "
