Ixworth Cottage is a most attractive barn conversion offering quality holiday accommodation in the delightful setting of a small family-run farm (it's just a small-holding - no farm machinery). Situated on the outskirts of the attractive and historic market town of Ottery St Mary, and about 15 minutes drive from the pretty seaside resort of Sidmouth on the stunning Jurassic coast, the farm is a real delight. It`s home to a wide range of animals, including Pygmy goats, sheep, pigs and chickens. There are free range eggs and delicious homemade jams, as well as home grown seasonable vegetables, often available.This self-contained property has been thoughtfully designed to offer everything you could wish for in a really comfortable modern holiday cottage, including fitted kitchen with dishwasher, bathroom with power shower and central heating. The open-plan ground floor living area is light and airy with French windows opening to a sunny patio at the rear. Upstairs there are two spacious bedrooms (both of which have beds that can be made up as either doubles or twins) and there`s a newly fitted bathroom.

The surrounding area offers much to do for all age groups, children will love nearby Escot (less than 3 miles away), keen gardeners will not want to miss the wonderful Otter Nurseries (just a couple of minutes walk away) and walkers will love the beautiful countryside routes on the doorstep (including a lovely stroll down the River Otter to the famous Tumbling Weir). The West Dorset seaside town of Lyme Regis is about 35 minutes drive away. An idyllic holiday setting for families and couples, old and young alike.

We absolutely loved our week at Ixworth Cottage. On arrival the cottage was spotless and was equipped with everything we could possibly need. The outside space was a perfect suntrap for outside breakfasts and dinners. The beds were really comfortable too, so we all slept really well from the very first night. I'm sure the peace of the countryside helped too! Our two boys, especially our 7 year old, loved feeding the goats every day, and has listed them as one of his holiday highlights!!! Thank you Nikki and Clive for making us so welcome. We would definately recommend Ixworth Cottage to our friends and family.

Good central location with easy access to main roads. Perfect for 2. Lovely fresh eggs!

October 2018

Our was very good, cottage and owner very helpful. The only comment would be if their was a few cloths to wipe the shower down with after use, also spare cloths in the kitchen to mop up any spillages if they happen. I am quite sure if I asked the owner for them they would have provided them.

September 2018

Yes a lovely, clean cottage with everything you need, very comfortable especially the bed! Thanks

August 2018

Great holiday house and location

August 2018

Owners were lovely & visible without being intrusive. Planes overhead during the night were a surprise - we didn’t realise we were on the flight path. But it was a really nice place - plenty of space for our 5 year old grandson to play, both inside & out. Location is great for all sorts of outings. Would definitely recommend it to others.

This was our 4th visit to Ixworth Cottage at Ottery St Mary and we were not disappointed. A lovely cottage and beautiful surroundings made for a really relaxing stay. "Our Little Shop" on site has lovely produce such as home made jams, meats and the best bacon in the world. Also local handicrafts to buy for presents. Always made to feel welcome by Nicky and Clive. We will be back next year.

A very pleasant and restful stay, with the added bonus of fresh eggs and meats on hand. The cottage was well-equipped with everything we needed.

September 2016

This was our third visit to Ixworth Cottage at Ottery St Mary as we so enjoyed it here before. Clive and Nicky are so welcoming and friendly. The farm shop has some lovely produce and the bacon is scrumptious! We will be back next year for sure.
