Sleepy Otterton lies about 1 mile inland along the River Otter from Budleigh Salterton, the very beautiful seaside town towards the end of the Jurassic Coast. The Mill is the hub of the village and is enterprising in every way. There is a great cafe/restaurant, a working mill , large gift shop and cook shop, bakery and deli/food store. They also run events from time to time and often promote local arts and crafts. The gardens along the river have a selection of outside sculptures that include a brilliant turf sofa complete with remote control which seems to only show the channel running idyllic riverside views.
Use The Mill as a central location to walk around, either West to Budleigh along the beautiful river path or East along the river in the opposite direction for a circular walk. Either way you can come back for lunch or coffee and pick up some well earned treats from the shop.
