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.

Beautiful house, plenty of space. We particularly loved the social areas, the kitchen and the beautiful and big living room. The recently renovated bathrooms were stunning. The village of Sidbury is so pretty and we loved the area overall. Also very friendly reception from the owners. Loved it and have already recommended it to others. We'll be back. Thank you!

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.
