Branscombe is situated on the East Devon coast with Beer and Lyme Regis to the East and Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton to the West. It is a beautiful, picturesque village with easy access to the unspoilt beach and stunning coastal footpath.
Branscombe is a small village on the East Devon coast full of character and typical english country cottages. There is a National Trust farm, watermill and tearooms. The beach is unspoilt with a thatched roof cafe serving good food. It is great for swimming and fishing trips in the summer. The village itself is criss-crossed with footpaths and there is easy access to the South West Coastal Footpath of East Devon which has stunning views across the bay. There is an abundance of wildlife especially birdlife. Buzzards are regularly seen circling above the trees and a peregrine falcon has been spotted on the clifftops. And as an added extra there are 2 real ale pubs, both serving good food.
Our self catering accommodation is ideally situated in the village square in walking distance of the beach at Branscombe mouth. It is an ideal base for exploring all of the surrounding attractions of East Devon.
It is very competitively priced in this much sought after holiday area.
The Donkey Sanctuary is 2 miles from the property. Beer and Lyme Regis are a few miles along the coast to the east and Sidmouth, Budleigh Salterton and Exmouth to the west. Inland are the pretty towns and villages of East Devon, with the historic city of Exeter 20 miles away.
