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.
