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 property itself is part of a small 'holiday village' next to the donkey sanctuary. However, don't let this put you off! We may as well have been on our own their. It was modern and brilliantly presented and the surroundings are toddler and dog friendly (of which we have both). There is plenty to do in the surrounding area and it made a great central location for a lovely family break. We would definitely return.

All fittings and furnishings to a high standard.The position is very handy for travelling to various points of interest such as Bicton gardens, Budleigh Salterton, Sidmouth, Exeter and the local golf club at Woodbury. Paul our host was very helpful, good to converse with and informative. Would be more than happy to pay a return visit.
