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 house itself was surprisingly quiet given its proximity to the town centre and a pub. The Tiger Inn, barely a minute's walk, is very welcoming and has a good selection of ales. There's an excellent cafe a few steps further on which does a good a hot chocolate as you'll ever try. We walked everywhere. Twice to West Bay, along the clifftop and along the beach as well as climbing a few hills. We left the car in the long stay car park in East St. That's a mile by road but 4 minutes on foot! At only £2.80 per day, it's good, but there weren't many spaces available. The house is well equipped and there are lots of good shops nearby. For winos, try Palmers shop on the road to West Bay. We thoroughly enjoyed our three days. I am sure we will be back soon! Thank you so much, Neil & Penny.
