BRAND NEW STUNNING ECO-HOME IN BEAUTIFUL COASTAL DEVON

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Branscombe - The Retreat

Contemporary Living Space (sleeps 4) With Rural Broadleaf Valley View

We are proud to present this brand new holiday let we have just completed building for the 2013 Spring holiday season. The site at Rockenhayne, Branscombe is situated in a peaceful valley on a site which has been a dwelling since the 9th Century. The Maggs' Family are the proprietors and live on-site with Tan, our border collie. We are 1 mile from the main coast road the A3052 and within 10 minutes drive of local villages, towns and all amenities. We are very pet-friendly!

The Retreat has been specifically designed to accommodate those with access needs and has been built using locally sourced timber and as much local craftsmanship as possible has be employed. We are fully Eco-friendly with solar powered electricity and heat-exchange underfloor heating. We have our own Spring water supply. As much waste as possible ends up on Rosie's compost and we keep two hives of bees in our vegetable garden, so we're doing our bit! We use Ecover natural cleaning products.

The Retreat comprises two bedrooms; a master bedroom with en-suite wetroom with disabled-access features, and balcony doors opening into a decked area overlooking the valley. The twin-bedded room has a flip down tv and an en-suite shower room. Both bedrooms have plenty of built-in storage and a hairdryer.

The superking master bedroom has a large limestone tiled wetroom with grab rails and extra features such as a small handbasin next to the toilet, and mirrors for those using wheelchairs. Both bathrooms have heated towel rails.

The main living space is open-plan with a kitchen, dining area and large area. The entire front of the building opens up with folding doors so you can connect with the outdoors and there is a large decked area with outdoor seating for sunnier days. There is a large private lawn area for dogs.

The living area has a 32' tv with DVD player and a 30+ library of DVDs. There are books and boardgames for you to enjoy. We have fantastic free Wi-Fi connection for you to use.

All areas have been designed as best possible to accommodate those in wheelchairs.

The light airy space and beautiful scenery will have particular appeals to artists, and Rockenhayne itself has a very calm and healing feel about it.

We have three other holiday homes on the same site if you would like to come with larger families or a group of friends.

The Retreat

A wonderful, peaceful location, off the beaten track, yet close enough to Sidmouth and Lyme Regis to enjoy local attractions including dog friendly pubs, restaurants and shops.
We received a warm, friendly welcome. Rental facilities are exactly as described on the website. We will certainly make a return booking and recommend this for anyone who wants to get away to a delightful retreat.

The perfect retreat!

A wonderfully spacious, comfortable, well-appointed holiday home with outstanding country views in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just a few minutes from the beach, what is there not to like? The best ever tonic for a disabled person, their Carer, friends and family too! We are sure the owners are both Angels! Nothing was too much trouble for them. I've never enjoyed such a tranquil time on holiday, just what I needed to recharge my caring batteries!
Owner's Response: Thank you! We're so happy you enjoyed you stay, and we look forward to welcoming you once again in the Autumn. Best wishes to you and yours!

Stylish retreat in a rural paradise - bliss!

Best self-catered house I've stayed in over the past 20 years. Excellent value for money in a perfect and peaceful rural spot. Although it looks a bit like a log cabin from the outside, it's a very solid house built to a high specification. The interior is warm, very spacious, comfortable, and beautifully furnished. It's bathed in light, even on a wet, grey day. The house is on the side of a little hill surrounded by fields and woodland, and the windows all around let the light and country views flood in. We didn't mind the rainy days at all, it was beautiful even in the wet.

There's a huge deck for relaxing and sunbathing, a garden for games and free access to their private wood next door. The dog loved being allowed to run around off lead and explore all the lovely smells. It was amazing in autumn, so must be even nicer still in summer. I stayed two weeks in October and didn't want to leave despite the weather. If you like staying off the beaten track, walking in the countryside or just relaxing inside with a cup of tea or glass of wine soaking up the lovely views, it's paradise.

If you want more variety, the beach at Branscombe is a short drive, with the excellent Mason's Arms for lunch or dinner (Sawday's recommended), there are more restaurants in nearby Beer, and the charming market town of Honiton with its regular markets is about 30 mins.

The owners are friendly and helpful, and live about 300m away along the track, so although the house still feels very private, you don't feel completely isolated. They brought us a delicious plate of warm homemade scones when we arrived. Their dog, Tan, is a venerable old lady, friendly and happy to plod off with you around the wood. I can't recommend it highly enough if you're looking for peace and quiet in the country.

A beautifully designed holiday home.

The Retreat is a truly beautifully designed holiday home. Simply the most stunning building we have ever stayed in. Every need has been catered for so you can relax and enjoy the wonderful surrounding countryside in this uncluttered, hugely spacious, and yet warm and cosy home.
Thank you for such a wonderful holiday with our two dogs. It's not always easy to find the right place when travelling with dogs, so thank you very much for allowing us to bring them. We certainly plan to return, we didn't want to leave at the end of our stay.

Jane and Richard Talbot
Owner's Response: Fantastic! We're thrilled you had a great break with us, and thanks for your kind words. We very much look forward to having you to stay again in the New Year. Thanks again for booking your holiday with us... Best wishes.

A Retreat second to none!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 24-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2013
We have recently returned from a week at The Retreat, and it exceeded all our expectations. The location is stunning, so peaceful, yet there are many places to visit within easy reach, and it is such a nice place to return to after a day out.
The layout and facilities , especially disabled, are second to none.
The owners went out of their way to arrange the hire of a wheelchair & walking frame as we had limited car space available.
Everything is finished to a very high standard and was spotlessly clean.
If you are lovers of wildlife, as we are, there is plenty to see, with Buzzards, Fox, Pheasant and Tawny Owl, and even a pair of Roe Deer on the woodland walk.
Rosie & Dizzy (& Tan) made us feel very welcome and we can not wait to return.

Ian & Jo and John & Dot.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Ian, Jo, John and Dot! We've very happy you enjoyed your break with us, and thanks for all of the fantastic feedback re. accessible features. Best wishes and we look forward to your next visit.
