Holiday accommodation in Branscombe, Devon

Branscombe's main industry is tourism and many visitors each year stay in self-catering accommodation, which is becoming ever more popular, especially Devon cottages. The main reason for this is that cottage holidays allows more freedom to explore the whole of the county without worrying about meal times.

A holiday cottage offers home from home comforts, is much more spacious than a hotel room, often has a garden and some allow pets. A cottage in Branscombe is an ideal starting point for walks on the South West Coast Path, which is situated above the beach and is owned by the National Trust.

Devon is known for its hospitality, as you will find out when you go shopping in Tiverton, Honiton, Newton Abbot, Axminster and the City of Exeter or visit the resorts of Lyme Regis, Teignmouth, Dawlish, Barnstable or Budleigh Salterton. There are two public houses close to Branscombe's holiday cottages, the Fountainhead in the hamlet of Street and the Mason's Arms, which is so named because of the stone quarrying that once took place in the neighbouring Beer stone caves. They sell award-winning ales from the local Branscombe Vale Brewery.

The beach at Branscombe Mouth has loads of rock pools, a thatched licensed restaurant and fishing boat trips if you fancy cooking a mackerel supper in your holiday cottage.

It is in an ideal location for town , seafront and of course the pub. We come down at least once a year and find the apartment comfortable and well equipped .

We really enjoyed staying in this cosy apartment, and felt very comfortable there and able to relax - just what we needed! The apartment is nicely decorated, comfortable, and clearly lovingly furnished, with the feeling of a well-loved home-from-home retreat. We certainly felt at home and able to relax quickly into our holiday. What else can I add... The stairs to the 2nd floor apartment are easily manageable. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and eating in but Beer also has plenty of excellent places to eat out too - all just a short stroll from the apartment. The attractive lounge is perfect for relaxing in in the evening, and the apartment was lovely and warm. It was also a nice touch to find fresh flowers in the apartment when we arrived. Sue has provided a very comprehensive information folder about every aspect of the apartment and included lots of useful tips about Beer and the local area, and she kindly offered us assistance with local information or planning our holiday if we should need it. Thanks Sue, my wife and I enjoyed our all-too-short stay in your apartment. :-)
