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.

                                                          Really enjoyed our holiday here, and appreciated the tasteful adaptations for disabled access. The master bathroom is nicely done, with walk-in wet-room style shower with seat and plenty of handrails, and handrails for the toilet. The bedroom is not especially adapted, but my wife (who had a stroke last year and has little strength in her left side) had no trouble getting in and out of bed with my help. A stunning setting in the woods, nearly a mile off road. Do note that there is no telephone, while getting a mobile signal was only possible by walking a little way up the track. The owner's house is nearby, though.

                                                          Stylish, comfortable and thoughtfully equipped!

                                                          Sitting here in rainy Hampshire, the sun-drenched weekend we spent in Beer seems suddenly much further away than just two days ago! We decided, on a last minute whim, to search for overnight accommodation for ourselves and our six year old daughter, for a two day beach getaway. And we feel incredibly lucky to have found Louise's beautiful Escape Pod in the charming seaside village of Beer (a favourite haunt of ours). The Pod is immaculate - fresh, clean and welcoming. Louise has utilised the minimal space by using clever, space saving interior design techniques which really work - without compromising a sense of homeliness and style. The kitchen lacked for nothing and the bathroom, with its fold away ceiling mounted drier rack and piping hot shower was surprisingly spacious. We used the fold down bunk beds for our daughter and slept in the sofa bed. A good nights sleep was had by all. We especially liked the hidden sun trap behind the pod that gets the evening sun and also the thorough pod and local information cards that Louise has hanging inside. Louise was friendly and accommodating and the basket of breakfast goodies we bought was ideal. We will be coming back, for sure - that's if The Escape Pod isn't fully booked for the rest of the summer!

                                                          Beautiful house which was well equipped with everything you need. Some lovely touches from dog bowls provided for our pooch to featherdown duvets. We had a great time in a very pretty village, a short walk to pubs, restaurants, shops and beach. Great location to explore the Jurassic coast. we hope to return some timein the future
