About Us

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



We should all spoil our Mums from time to time and Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to show how much you appreciate yours.  Such a special celebration calls for a special treat, so spend some quality time together and show your Mum just how much she means to you.  Celebrate in style with the whole family on Sunday 26th March, when we will be serving a delicious 3 course Sunday Lunch for only £22.50 per person.  Table booking times are available from Midday until 2.00pm.  To make a reservation, please call us on 01404 812752.

Friendly host. Helpful staff.

"It was quite difficult for us to find a B&B and dinner place. The host and their staff were very helpful with arranging room and dinner for us. I gave 4 star as the room would be better with some updating and the bedding was a bit too soft for us. Would consider coming back again Thank you!"
