The property was really well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. We felt at home immediately.The setting was superb being so close to the sea and yet retaining complete privacy. There were some lovely walks along the coast and inland and a Dog- friendly hostelry - the Masons Arms in Branscombe. I would certainly recommend it to my friends.

The cottage is wonderfully located being near to village and only approx five minutes away from the beach. Everything matched the descriptions given on the web page. The owner was extremely responsive to any queries before and during our stay. Everything was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed several lovely walks and days out in the area. Would not hesitate to recommend.
