Stayed here on the weekend of the grizzly, great facilities and cracking pub a stones throw away(masons arms). If you love being in the middle of nowhere this is the place for you, very quiet and peaceful with beautiful walks,,You can’t get a mobile signal around here but this place as free wifi which was a nice touch,
Wonderful location in the heart of the picturesque village of Branscombe, had everything you will need for a weekend break or longer. We like the Wi-fi, selection of games and books and kitchen very well equipped if you need to self cater. Lots of lovely walks from apartment, and two very good pubs in village. A very enjoyable 3 night stay.
Wet stayed in apartment with our 16 month old granddaughter . Apartment is well situated and easy to find in this lovely village. Owner seemed to have thought of everything you will need for a self catering holiday . Even toys and books !
Central position to tour East Devon. We would love to go back but for a longer stay.
Great communication from the owner and all our needs were met!
The flat is located in the centre of a small village only a few staggering steps from the pub, and a 15 minute stroll from the beach. We loved the quiet and peace we found in the village, and the sunshine made all the difference.
The flat is well equipped with a small cupboard of food essentials like salt and sugar. The rooms are not large by our home standards, more like cosy. Not the most comfortable bed I have slept in, but after a couple of beers who cares? We walked along the coast path to Beer – and back again and were able to explore the area around East Devon, an area of outstanding beauty that seems to be stuck in a time warp. Would love to go back for more of the same.
The accommodation was very good with everything you would need. Situated in a perfect location with lovely walks to the beach and surrounding areas. Would definitely choose this accommodation again.
My family and I go to East Devon every year and we have stayed at Nestlecombe a number of times now. We love the quiet village of Branscombe, and Nestlecombe is in a perfect location being just ten minutes walk from the large but quiet beach and just a one minute walk from the Masons Arms which serves good food and has a good selection of local ales. Within walking distance there is also a bakery serving excellent cream teas, a park for the children along with tennis court and another pub, The Fountains Head, which is another real ale heaven.!
The flat is comfortable and well equipped, and there is also a decent selection of books, DVDs and childrens games if they are needed at any time ! Some incredibly scenic walks are right on your doorstep here, there are great coastal walks in both directions (Beer to the east and Sidmouth to the west) and the coastal path to Beer (which starts at the caravan park just above the beach) is absolutely spectacular.
And not too far from Branscombe, there are some good attractions for the children including both the Pecorama and Quarry Caves in the neighbouring village of Beer, the donkey sanctuary just outside Branscombe and the tramway at Seaton. A little further afield there are plenty of childrens attractions for all ages such as Crealy Adventure Park, the World of Country Life at Exmouth and Bicton Gardens, all of which are near to Exeter which is a city that is certainly worth a visit.
Overall, Nestlecombe is great value accomodation situated in a wonderful part of East Devon
Can’t wait to go back…… Jo and James
This part of the country is stunning, and there are many gorgeous walks inland and on the coast. Our favourite – catch the bus to Sidmouth, and walk back along the Coastal Path for stunning views and the reward of the pub at the end. The owner is friendly and helpful – communication is good.
We stayed over a long bank holiday. Walking on the coastal path, eating out at the pubs (both very good), local farmers market in Ottley St Mary etc etc. Very good if you like walking and outdoor activities. Beach 5 mins walk along the river or over the hill depending on which way you want to go, nice tea rooms in the village too. Apartment is comfortable and simple, no frills but all the things you need, essential food in the cupboard, good, working equipment, guide books and maps, good selection of books and even wellies if you forget yours. Excellent value for money.
We have stayed at Nestlecombe quite a few times now and I would recommend it! It is in a lovely village with a great pub across the road – Masons Arms (very popular so book first if you want to eat there on the Sunday evening you arrive). It is a nice walk to the beach and as it is on paths through the countryside not only pleasant but also safe if you are with young children. There is a handy shop and cafe on the beach and a small boat that does short trips out and fishing. The flat has everything you need but is a great base for days out as there is lots to do in the area
Nestlecombe is a wonderful jewel. I have been staying for a weeks holiday for the last four years – we love it. The flat has everything you need and a fully functional kitchen. The local pub is a stones throw away and the path to the beach not far from your back door. I adore the tranquillity of Branscombe and intend to return for many years to come. The property is as advertised…..lovely
We’re looking forward to our third visit to the apartment in October 2011. It’s right in the village square, round the corner from a wonderful pub with open fires, and it’s a short walk to the seaside, where you can pick up your newspaper and have a cup of tea at the Sea Shanty. Beds are comfy, the flat is cosy, and the kitchen small but well-equipped.
