Evenings and weekends
Dine out on your doorstep
A short walk into the town centre of Ottery St Mary and you will find a selection of traditional pubs. Steeped in history the local pubs offer hearty menus to please the appetite along with a great selection of ales and fine wine. For a breakfast to remember try the award winning Rusty Pig; specialists in charcutrie, fresh pork products and other tasty delights.
Hit the beaches
Take a short drive to Sidmouth and explore the beauty of the coast. You can stroll along the pebbled seafront with a heavily laden ice cream cone or traditional bag of chips in hand. Alternatively, if it's sand castle building you are after, a short drive from Ottery St Mary and you will reach the golden beach of Exmouth.
Escape to Woodbury Park
Enjoy a full day at Woodbury Park Golf and Country Club. You can start the day with a round of golf on either the 18 hole championship course or the shorter 9 hole course. In the afternoon you can begin with lunch in The Atrium Restaurant and then take self indulgence to the next level in the BodyZone Spa and Health Suite.
Traditions to remember
Remember, remember the 5th of November... you will struggle not to when living in Ottery St Mary. On this date brave members of the community carry lit barrels of tar on their backs through crowds of daredevil spectators. Furthermore in June you can enjoy Pixie Day when you’ll witness the mischievous Pixies take over the town reclaiming their once own lands.
