Once a bustling port with a thriving wool trade, Otterton is now a picturesque village of thatched cottages with a working mill which is open to the public. The route follows the River Otter, a nature reserve teeming with wildlife, passing through pastureland reclaimed using the help of French prisoners from the Napoleonic Wars. Children will love the beach, the river, wildlife and the experience of the working mill, which is open to the public, free of charge.
